Cool Me Down

It is a hot day in Ft Lauderdale. Ok, it is usually a hot day here in Florida! For me, I need to get use to this heat year round but for the rest of you the
heat is just beginning to rise for the Summer months. I am still unpacking and organizing during the day but I have managed to find breaks in the day for a little time by the pool.
I have been craving a nice fruity summer drink to cool me off!

{Cucumber Water}

Non Alcoholic but SO refreshing to keep a pitcher in the fridge. I also love a pitcher of Lemon Mint Water!

{Mexican Summer Smash }

Just the name of this sounds good! Smash together Basil leaves, Strawberries, Blueberries, Raspberries, Lime and Agave Nectar. Shake with Tequila and serve with a splash of Club Soda.

{Patio Lemonade}

Pink Lemonade, Chambord and Vodka

{Sparkling Sangria}

We all know that I LOVE a little bubbly! Adding a little bubble to sangria sounds delightful. I like to throw in any Summer fruit I have on hand. The more fruit the more the merrier. You can nibble on the Sangria soaked fruit as a dessert.

{The Skinny Mojito}

I think I will try out this low cal Mojito since I am trying to watch my "Florida Figure" for the bathing suit months ahead! Shake one up and tell me what you think.

1 oz. light rum
1 T lime juice
1 packet Splenda
1/2 cup club soda
1/2 cup ice
SHAKE and garnish with fresh mint and lime.

    Enjoy! xoxo~Becca

me and a cosmo

I think that this afternoon I might dress up, lay on the couch and drink a Cosmo...or two! I have only been in Florida for a few days but am already missing my girlfriends. I love my beau and am glad I am here but hey, watching Sex and the City 2 with the girls just doesn't get much better.

I guess it was about 9 years ago that I was an intern in NYC. Christa and I use to run upstairs to her cousins apartment to watch Sex and the City every Sunday night. We would search websites for where the girls hung out in NYC and save all our pennies to indulge in a cocktail there as well. Oh the fun memories!

The first movie came out a couple of years ago and I had the great company of my sisters and my mom. It was a weekend away in Scottsdale Arizona and we made sure to have tickets before we even arrived.

I think I may go see a matinee tomorrow and celebrate having great amazing fabulous girlfriends! I am a lucky girl:) It doesn't matter where we live. Maybe we can all go to Abu Dhabi for the weekend like they did.

.....I thought SJP looked FAB at the premiere in NYC!

....ooooo I just love her! The hat from the last premier and this premier are so amazing!

I hope you all find a little time to indulge in a showing of Sex and the City 2! Girlfriends, cocktails, amazing clothes, relationships, jobs....the show and movie are just fabulous. I am toasting to all of you from my couch.

The Past Few Weeks

Hello! I know, I have been a bit MIA these past few weeks. But here I am, I am back! I have had so much going on but I am back and will be blogging regularly now from my new home in Ft. Lauderdale Florida. Yes, I have finally made the flip to Sunny Florida to be with my beau. For now I thought I would share what I've been up to recently.

~My besties from DC threw me such a nice going away party in Washington. Everything was pink. It was adorable and SO fitting. I couldn't ask for more wonderful people that I met over the past 7 years!~

~I moved. Yep, this is the look of our living room right now. Do you like the decor? I call it the messy boxes look. I am wishing that when I wake up some little elves unpacked it during the night. What a job ahead! I have a lot of stuff!!!~

~Beau and I went to China! It was an amazing trip! The picture below is from the plane ride over. Yep, the snack was noodles, it made me laugh. ~

More to come from the land of sun and flip flops. Love you all!
