cinco de mayo TREATS! i am a day LATE. seriously, this week has been utterly crazy. it seems that every night i have had something going on or somewhere to be. tonight i am looking foward to some true blue r & r. oh wait i have to whip us some of these yummy treats for a friend at work. tomorrow is her bday....

go HERE now for the cutest treats, EVEEEERRRR!  i mean come on.....i am convinced that bakerella lays in bed at night dreaming of these adorable ideas. this is one talented girl. anywhoozies, i am attemping to make the cupcake pops in about 10 seconds. i did pre bake my cake, so will post pics if they turn out.

k, getting back to a more serious topic. how many of you celebrated cinco de mayo?? hhhhhuhhhh? ok, i have finally convinced myself that i am getting old. like really old. we had went to an indians baseball game tuesday night, and had every intention of going out for some sensationally fabulous margaritas.....however, my lame A$$ just could not pull off two nights of going out on a school night. (a.k.a. WORK). ugh. i felt so tired and just wanted to nap all day long......then add in a very long track meet after work, i was whooped. call me a baby. call me old. i am certainly not too proud to admit.

k, sorry getting wordsy.....(i must have ADHD)....focus T. focus. here is the most amazing margarita recipe. it is not your typical margarita my friends.....but let me forewarn. they go down EASY. way too easy. so drink up and happy cinco de mayo, the day after!

margarita especial~

1 1/4 ounce tequila
1/2 ounce cointreau liqueur
1/2 ounce brandy
4 ounces sweet and sour cocktail mix
1/8-1/4 ounce lime juice

place ALL ingredients into a martini shaker with ice. shake. shake. shake. pour into salt rimmed margarita glasses filled with ice. garnish with lime slices.

(i doubled the recipe, and it all fit into the shaker)

and there ya go......easy now. they do not taste strong and are the yummiest margarita i have ever laid my sweet lips on!

love and hugs,
