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 new week, guys!

I hope your weekend was great. The boys and I rode over to Temple for the food truck festival and had an absolute blast. They tried so many things they wouldn’t usually try – I mean, who knew they liked kimchi fries?! And the best part is that I found so many food trucks that I’ll now be stalking on Instagram.

We also saw bluebonnets on the way home! This is the best time of year in Texas (I say this as if I haven’t only lived here 11 months) and I cannot even wait for all the pretty flowers to take over.

The weather was also perfect and got me looking forward to summer cocktails. I love this Skinny Coconut Mojito because no matter what time of year it is, I can make one and pretend it’s summer. It’s really simple, low calorie, but still so delicious!
