Sitting here listening to Spotify in the sunshine and sipping on a Pink Lemonade Margarita while typing on my laptop….ahhhhh summer.  Would you judge me greatly if I told you the playlist that I’m currently rocking out to? “90’s Smash Hits”, my friends.  Yes, I’m stuck in the 90’s (hello, Ace of Base!)  I may have even very impulsively bought tickets to the Goo Goo Dolls concert later this month because I saw a Groupon for it and couldn’t resist.  The reaction from Mr. Wishes when I told him?  “You do know that’s my birthday weekend, right?”  Oops!  I guess I get to go to a concert of my #1 favorite band of all time for Mr. Wishes birthday!  Goo Goo Dolls were my first ever concert and I’m just trying to re-live the fun.

I’m so glad you’re here! Follow along on Pinterest for more inspiration! 

I made a Sangria Punch last month that got me in a pink lemonade kinda mood.  That was a kid-friendly drink and I wanted to try out an adult version. This right here, people – summer drink perfection.  Everyone loves a good Margarita on a hot summer day!  It would also be super appropriate for any party or holiday that needs a little splash of pink (think Valentine’s day or baby shower).  Fun drinks know no season.  It would also be a great accompaniment to your next Mexican food night.  If you’re looking for another unique drink for a party make sure you try my new Red Wine Slushies!  Hope you enjoy these as much as I did!

These are a few of my favorite things: cooking, baking, Broadway musicals, cruises, Disney World, Christmas, thunderstorms, 80's and country music, and my favorite pastime has ALWAYS been baseball. Go Yankees!

    I always listen to the “90s on 9” in the car (Sirius XM). It’s the best! Love the beautiful colors in this gorgeous margarita!
