Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Happy Cinco de Mayo friends! Our community happens to have THE best Mexican restaurant ever (which is also my favorite food ever..like EVER) so of course we celebrate! This year though with Ava still recovering from her surgery we decided to bring the food home.  So after some house hunting this afternoon I called in and placed our order that we picked up on the way home.  (and they even made some Mac and cheese for Miss Ava.  Win Win)

Obviously bringing the food home meant I would need to mix up some cocktails! I've shared before my low calorie classic lime margarita so along with that today I'll share two more fun options!

 (I've also directly linked my Metal Bar Stools Set of 2  since you guys always ask me about them when we eat at the bar!) How cute are the little Corona vests?! They gave them to us a few years ago on Cinco de Mayo! 






Low Calorie Classic Margarita
-4oz Sparkling ICE in Lemon Lime
-1 1/2 ounces of favorite Tequila
-1 fresh squeezed Lime
-Fresh squeezed orange juice (to your taste)
 Shake it all up with some ice, pour into a salt rimmed glass and add a slice of lime for garnish


Pink Lemonade Margarita
-1 can of frozen pink lemonade concentrate
-12 ounces of cold water
-12 ounces of tequila
-splash of sprite
Blend with Ice in blender and serve in salt rimmed glasses.

Strawberry Margarita
-16 ounces of frozen strawberries
-1 can of limeade
-1 cups of water
-12 ounces favorite tequila
-2 cups orange juice
-Splash of sprite
Blend with Ice in blender and serve in a salt rimmed glass with strawberry to garnish


Enjoy!

Neutrals by BEHR Paint

I've been working on a project for the past two weeks and what always seems to be the most challenging part is choosing paint colors.  I have been wanting to find a nice neutral that isn't too "Gray" and isn't too "Beige" but not too white either. I personally like the look of white walls in pictures but in reality I'm not a huge fan.  Also, I like to see a contrast between painted walls and white trim.  Each time I look over on Pinterest for inspiration I find lots of suggestions for other paint brands..but I'm a BEHR girl :)  We spend so much time at Home Depot it just makes more sense for us.  That being said I decided to share with all of you my suggestions for finding the perfect "light Greige" by BEHR Paints!  


To start off with here are three options that are lighter/cooler but will still show a nice contrast next to white.

1. Drizzle


2. Sterling

3. Halation

These three options are also a "light greige" but a tad smidge more …

My first attempt at "Meal Planning".....

Okay friends ...well the vote was basically unanimous..97% of you voted "YES" to an easy low carb based meal prepping plan for the week.  So here we are! I say "low carb based" because there are a few carbs as well as some berries.  However the intake is still very low and definitely in an approved amount for any low carb diet.  
A few things to mention... I did not have the containers and like I mentioned in my stories Monday morning I did not have time to head to Target, Walmart or wait for Amazon delivery so I purchased mine at Publix the same day I shopped.  They were very inexpensive anyways so it worked out fine.  I got two sizes of containers (entree and soup/salad) and I also ended up using some of my existing tupperware. 
The four entrees that I made for the week (I can rotate them for lunches and dinners) do not contain any chicken.  This is because I personally don't like the taste of reheated chicken.  If you do then definitely substitute out some of t…
