Sparkling Cranberry Sweet Tea is the perfect holiday drink for the entire family! And it’s made with Milo’s Tea so you know it’s delicious!

You. Guys.

Thanksgiving is a week from today. I saw on Instagram that Christmas is less than 40 days away. Is that true?! Are we ready? I’m not. I mean, my house is decorated for Christmas because I am me but I haven’t even thought about Thanksgiving.

I’ve been annoying my children with “What should I make?! Are you sure we need green bean casserole? What if we skipped the mashed potatoes and just did sweet potatoes?” questions nonstop though and the only definitive answers they’ve given me is that they want 3 different kinds of pie and this Sparkling Cranberry Sweet Tea that I made last week.

Frozen Prickly Pear Margaritas - fresh prickly pears, lime juice, and tequila! Is there anything better than a gorgeous pink margarita?!

You guys.

I’m having a thing with the Korean market right now.

I mean, I’ve always enjoyed the Korean market buuuut I’ve definitely been there 3 times this week.

And each time I make my kids wander around because I’m not actually looking for anything and then I get super excited and shout, “LOOK AT THAT [insert obscure vegetable]”. Then I make them look at all the fish and other dead creatures and finally I try to convince them to try super spicy noodles.

Three times this week, guys.

I’m honestly shocked they haven’t refused to go with me yet.

But yeah, each time I’ve gone this week I’ve come home with a bag of prickly pears.

I’m in love with prickly pears. In loooove with them.

I’ve never been more obsessed with anything in my life. The photos I took do it no justice. It was bright purpley pink and ugh, stunning.

Hey guys, happy Friday! How was your week? Are you also depressed that there was no Bachelorette this week?

Anyway, my mom came in yesterday! Kicked that off by realizing that the Jeep had a flat tire minutes before I needed to leave for the airport to get her. Luckily the boyfriend was here and got it changed for me because otherwise?

I would’ve sat in my driveway and cried.

I haven’t seen my mom in almost a year – crazy, right? I mean, we talk pretty much every day of our lives but still. Of course the boys started begging to go to the lake as soon as she stepped off the plane so we ended up spending a couple hours floating around.

Happy Friday!

This week flew by. The month flew by actually. How is May almost over?! My kids’ last day of school is next week and I’m gonna be real honest with you, I have no clue where they’re going to school next year. Like, I don’t even know what state they’re to go to school in. That’s where my life is right now.

So the end of the school year is exciting because you know I love summer and all the fun that comes along with it but it’s also super stressful because… I really just need someone to figure out my entire life for me so I don’t have to make any more decisions.

That’d be great.

I’ll talk about it all eventually, don’t even worry.

Spicy Salty Dog - a twist on the classic grapefruit cocktail!

Guuuuuys.

Bad news.

I’m sick. Again.

Whyyyy does this happen to me?

And it’s extra lame because the only thing I want to do right now is spend all my time in the woods and I can’t do that when I feel like death.
