Dear Mother Nature,
We were on the same page on Monday. With the first day of June you gave us warm weather, a hot as hell sunny day and even an afternoon thunderstorm to cool things down a bit. We were good.
However, all of a sudden you decided that you weren’t ready for Summer and you dropped the temperature and figured that you’d dump gallons and gallons of cold rain on us.
What gives? Bring back the warm weather, lady!
-Sincerely, the girl that was all prepared for hot weather!
Seriously, I was totally prepared to embrace Summer. I was ready. I should not be cold on June 3rd!
Had I known I was going to be shivering I would have gotten my my nails and toes painted blue instead of hot pink on Monday! 😉 haha Ps. have you seen my cute nail polish? I’ve been getting my nails painted with this “Mood” nail polish for a month or two and I’m really loving it! It doesn’t really change with your mood but it does change with the temperature. Like with the polish I have on right now, it changes to hot pink when it’s hot and it turns to dark purple when it’s cold.
I posted a video of it on my Instagram if you wanna check it out. <<– Yeah I know I got totally side tracked there. It’s just how my brain works haha.
So back to dreaming about Summer, I guess.
This past weekend I stocked our fridge with sweet tea, limeade, lemonade and water in preparation for June and now it seems like I should have been hoarding hot chocolate.
But this cold, rainy “summer” weather can’t last forever so I suppose it’s ok. I’m sure I’ll be begging for this kind of weather come August!!
Well we all know that I love a great glass of Sweet Tea, and I’m quite fond of lemonade (even if it does make me thirsty) but one of my favorite “citrus infused” drinks is Limeade!
We have a little pretzel shop in the mall that serves really good limeade and I just love stopping by there to grab a cup of it when I can.
It’s sweet but has a tangy kick from the lime; it’s just a perfect.
I prefer mine to be poured over crushed ice but there’s definitely nothing wrong with regular ice cubes!
Make sure it’s super cold when you serve it. If you put the mint leaves and lime slices in there and then chill it, they’ll add even more flavor!
Oh and add a little white rum to your glass and you’ve got the perfect Mojito! 😉
You can Thank my friend Nikki for that idea. You’re welcome. That’s kinda perfect for this #SouthernSippinDrinkWeek!
