Hurricane Pops! The classic Hurricane cocktail as a popsicle! Perfect for Mardi Gras!

TGIF!

You guys. We’re headed to New Orleans today – the boys are going to their first ever New Orleans Mardi Gras and we are SO EXCITED.

We meant to go last year but uhhh… you know, the assault happened and my protective order hearing was the day after Mardi Gras. So yeah, obviously had to cancel. But we’re going this year!

We’re from Mobile originally (the home of Mardi Gras in the US) so the boys have been to Mardi Gras but the celebrations in the 2 cities are so different and I feel like they really need to experience both. And we’re staying with family that we haven’t seen since last summer so it’ll be a good time.

Follow along on Instagram and Snapchat (amandalivesay) if you want to see what we’re up to!

Happy Monday!

How’d your team do? What’d you cook? Should we start a petition to make the day after the Super Bowl a national holiday?

Anyway, let’s ease into the week with a cocktail, eh?

I’m obsessed with blood oranges as I am every year around this time.

Even my kids are hooked on them. I bought a bag of regular oranges last week and my littlest looked at me and said, “Where are the bloody ones?”

Happy Halloween!

Are you dressing up today? Tell me you are and tell me how cute you’re going to be.

I, as you know, still haven’t put out my Halloween decorations so you know I didn’t get a costume. I will put cat ears on and call it a done. But first I have to go searching through my shed to find the bin that contains the cat ears.

I’m so unprepared for the holidays. At 11 pm last night I was digging through my kids’ backpacks to see if there were notes about Halloween parties and if I needed to send anything.

I did buy lots of candy though. And I thought I was being smart by not buying any bags with Almond Joys because you know I can’t control myself around them.

But then I ate all the Baby Ruths.

Help me.

So, serious coffee question for you today.

Are you iced coffee in the summer and then hot coffee in the winter?

I am iced coffee all year long. I don’t care how cold it is, I don’t care if it’s snowing. I’m getting an iced coffee.
