Happy Cinco de Mayo!
I thought we could celebrate together by enjoying a (healthier) marg.
When I was contacted to try SmarteRita I couldn't send the reply email fast enough!
Why? I love almost any margarita, but this one is only 100 calories for 4 oz. and is made with only natural flavors and colors, including agave as a sweetener.
With one sip I knew I was a fan, it was sweet, but not too sweet (a margarita requirement for me). Very refreshing. It did, after all, help me to put together Ina's jumperoo.
To top things off, I was also sent the SkinnyGirl margarita to compare. Although I liked the SkinnyGirl too, it had more of an aftertaste and tasted "diet" while SmarteRita tasted more like a margarita I would order at a restaurant.
Dan tasted SmarteRita and said, "That actually tastes like a margarita!" He was not a fan of SkinnyGirl.
Abby liked SkinnyGirl better, although, to be fair, she is a Bethany Frankel fan. Ha!
I also sometimes order a "homemade" skinny margarita - tequila with a little bit of triple sec and a splash of lime juice. If you order be careful- this drink packs a punch!
- This has been a birthday weekend so far. Friday night we celebrated my friend Meghan's birthday with some Indian food takeout.
Yesterday was my niece Hallaway's first birthday party.
She received 45 different outfits and will having a rocking summer wardrobe. I have decided I am going to have a first birthday party. You are all invited!
- Jillian Michaels on Friday + 9 hilly miles on Saturday = sore legs on Sunday. My legs are so sore this morning that when I looked at the stairs, I seriously contemplated falling down them so I wouldn't have to bend my knees. Today will be a needed and appreciated rest day!
- Obligatory Ina Mae picture (with my cousin Ashley).
I wouldn't want you guys to forget what she looks like!
Questions of the Day
Who makes your favorite margarita? I am a Margaritaville girl through and through - nothing beats sitting on the Vegas strip in the sun sipping on a marg with a night full of Pai Gow in my future.
Are you doing anything to celebrate this 5th of May? After church we headed to my grandparents' for some more family fun.
