A Relaxed Weekend

I am beat guys. I need a breather.

The end of school is a real energy suck, am I right?

This Monday also marked 9 months since I lost my brother. 9 months! I am trying to wrap my head around that.

Heading into Summer is very bittersweet. We are so excited for a break at the beach but Summer was my time with my brother. We spent every weekend together. Seriously, every weekend. It is going to be a difficult adjustment for all of us; I am going to cut myself some slack as I navigate this new path. Soooo on that note…. you get a greatest hits post. Sorry it is unoriginal, but it is still a good one!

And on a lighter and brighter note; today is my 16th (!!!) wedding anniversary! I love you Matt!

We are going to celebrate with family and friends this weekend and just RELAX. I have pulled together my favorite tequila cocktails and hors d’oeuvres so you too can do just that, relax this weekend. These recipes are sure to please!


Boca Heat

la vie en rose

The Darien Peach

Hors d’oeuvre:

Pepper Cheese

So divine with crackers or celery sticks!


Get really fancy and slather it on some bread and stick under the broiler until bubbly.

Roasted Crunchy Chickpeas

My kids love these. SO easy to make, double the batch, they go fast!

My Own Magic Green Sauce

Serve with your favorite veggies and tortilla chips!


Have a great weekend!
