Happy almost Friday!

Guys, I registered the kids for school yesterday. Didn’t school just let out?

I’m not ready for it! I need another 3 months of sleeping in and not packing lunches and not avoiding phone calls from teachers.

Don’t judge me.

Yesterday I also ordered a bunch of pumpkin and other fall Wallflowers from Bath & Body Works.

So um.

I’d really like if we could just have fall without all the not fun stuff that comes along with fall.

Last weekend I came across Nicole’s Blackberry Margaritas on Pinterest and couldn’t stop thinking about them, despite the fact that it was 9 am.

I don’t even like blackberries.

But whatever, I needed those margaritas in my life. So I loaded all the kids up (because the husband was in the field = why I needed margaritas at 9 am) and went to the store for blackberries.

Just blackberries.

I didn’t even wander around HEB, gathering samples and looking for new products. And you know that’s one of my favorite hobbies. I was wasting no time.

These were everything I’d hoped for and more. So delicious, so pretty! I already want to make them again!

For the simple syrup, you can either buy it or make your own by heating 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water, stirring until all the sugar is dissolved.
