Drink a Greyhound (kind of)

I don't claim to know anything at all about drinks. Drinky drinks. I'm the kind of gal that always ends up with a beer because I don't know anything else. And that's okay. 

But, wanting to put my popsicle molds to good use, I decided to jump on that trend of cocktail popsicles. Or, better known as, "poptails".

I used this website. The choices were wide and full of possibility. Hop over there and look, betcha can't guess which one I made.

It's not very hard.

A really easy guess.

Okay, I made the greyhound popsicles. Having never heard of the cocktail before, I thought it might widen my cocktail horizons. 

So when I headed out to get groceries I picked a few little ingredients as well.

- lime smirnoff
- rasberries (all the strawberries were bad!!)
- and a grapefruit

Then I got home and took those babies for a spin in the blender. The contents of which was a whole pack of raspberries (8 oz.) the juice from one whole grapefruit, and I think a whole cup of vodka.

Booz - y.


Tang - y

The tartness of so much fresh grapefruit juice was overpowering and I only got through a few bites because I was eating tortilla chips to combat the bitterness. 

I do want to try again though. I'm hoping for a super hot weekend of sun bathing, boozy popsicles and book 4 of game of thrones. Ah, refreshing.

So, I just want to talk for a minute about how much I love tumblr. Or maybe more specifically mine.

I got into tumblr because of pinterest. Basically, half the stuff pinned on there is taken from tumblr in the first place, so I started to spend a lot of time scrolling through pages and pages of beautiful imagery. Then I realized that it could be mine too.

It's kind of my happy place. A collection of things that I simply like. A story of an ideal morning / evening / vacation / or thought.

If you want, follow the link of yonder and scroll through.  I hope it makes you happy too.

Well, I'm at work with my keys locked in my car so I may as well write a blog...

That's right I drove back to work, parked on the residential street adjacent to my office because the gate was closed, snuck around the fence, let myself into the office, grabbed that coveted hot chicken from "Whiskey Kitchen" left over from lunch today and got 2 steps out the door only to realize I didn't bring my keys.  And Nathan is out of town. The - worst.  Meant to be read in the same melody as wah - wah.

Here is my though process as I was parking my car.

"No need to bring my purse, I just want to grab that yummy chipotle mac-n-cheese for dinner."

"woops, almost left my car unlocked"  Silly, me...

"better put that key back in my bag so nobody sees it"

GREAT thinking!!!!

"This will just take a second" I said...

30 minutes later I am thanking myself for that little urging I followed through with called "roadside assistance"

And luckily I have some super awesome landlords who are willing to let out my dog after he's been crated for 12 hours.


Could you imaging being stuck in a box for 12 hours with only your dreams to keep you company. Such is the life of the Pico now.

Anyway, how was your week?
