It’s Almost Time To Partee!

22 comments

Good morning!

Wow did yesterday ever fly by. I spent about 8 hours cleaning and prepping for the party today! It felt so good to get everything done ahead of time though. Now today all I have to do is throw the stuff into the oven/crockpot and I’m basically laughing! :)

We had crazy rain storms yesterday…

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Watermelon (Basically filled the blender)
  • 3 T Agave
  • 1 T fresh lemon juice
  • lemon zest (optional)
  • Fresh Rosemary (1 sprig finely chopped)
  • 7-8 cubes of ice (only just prior to serving)

Oh yes. I have big plans for this concoction!

Kristi, Kerrie, and I have our names written all over this drink! Prior to drinking it, I am going to crush the ice in it and mix in some vodka. It should be awesome!

Mmmmmmm.

I also made a slew of other things yesterday (including a S’moore Glo Bar!!!) that I will be unveiling this weekend.

Well, I am off to hopefully squeeze in a workout and finish cleaning before everyone arrives around 1pm. I have a couple posts going up later today (1 in the afternoon and 1 in the PM) that I scheduled ahead of time. So even though you will ‘see’ me posting, I won’t really be on the computer! Sneaky eh!? ;)

My sisters and I will be TWEETING today and tonight, so be sure to check us out on Twitter!

Just wanted to let you know that air fresheners ie febreeze are extremely bad for your health. They are one of the most toxic things you can put in your home!

That granita sounds interesting and good!

Great job on Erik’s shopping trip!! My husband couldnt do that, he doesnt like grocery stores and would probably come home with many of the wrong things! ;)

Have FUN with your party, how fun!! and I hope you get some SUN today after those storms yesterday.

Angela,

I was wondering if you could talk about why you take the specific supplements that you do?

I’ve read so many conflicting opinions about what is good and bad to take, and how much, and especially being a vegetarian I want to do it right but I have gotten so many mixed messages.

Hope the party goes great!

Have fun today! I love being well prepared for company, it really allows you to enjoy the company instead of running around like a crazy!

Mmm, that granita looks so yummy! Hope you have a fun party! :)

PS: I didn’t even know there was such thing as an algae supplement! Does it work well?

I use that Greenworks cleaner and their toilet cleaner, too – they’re pretty good! I think they have a bathroom cleaner too which I want to try, but I have to use up my other stuff first. Have a great visit with your friends & family!
