Thirsty Thursday: Virtual Happy Hour #3

Happy Thursday! And since it's Thursday, that means it's time for another edition of Thirsty Thursday with myself and the lovely Trish at Tales from Trish:

This week's drink is: Blueberry Champagne Sparklers!

What you need:

1 cup blueberries
1 cup pineapple juice
2 teaspoons chopped mint leaves
superfine sugar, as needed
1 bottle champagne

Puree blueberries, pineapple juice and mint in a blender. Taste for tartness. If needed, blend in sugar to taste. Strain.

Pour 2-3 tablespoons juice into flutes and slowly top with champagne.

So, now that we have our drink...

What's on your mind?

Stress! I can't begin to tell you how long and stressful this week has felt. Between all of the testing I've had to do at work lately in order to meet deadlines, dealing with a crummy situation with a friend, and my roommate drama, I feel like I've been through the ringer a few times over....and it's not even Friday yet! (time to take a big looooooong guzzle of my virtual drink) :)

Yes, that is an Adidas shirt from like 1990-something.
Don't judge me :)
I've also been trying to clean out the apartment of things that I don't need since MG's place doesn't have room for all of the furniture that I have. I've taken to listing things on craigslist and so far, I've gotten rid of  a lot of furniture stuff, but I've also gone through my closet and dressers once now, and got rid of two FULL trash bags worth of clothes! I'm pretty proud of myself--it's rare that I give up clothes that easily, but I guess having the motivation of moving in and knowing space will be tight made it easier. Plus, it just kinda felt good to get rid of things that I haven't worn at all, or much, in the last few years. Someone will get some good use out of them, and that makes me happy.  

On a more fun note, I know a lot of people are obsessed with Draw Something (I myself went through the phase of not being able to stop myself from playing it ALL THE TIME), but I am now obsessed with Scramble with Friends. Have you played? It's like boggle, and I love it. I particularly love that everyone who seemed to cream me in Words with Friends (which I don't even play anymore), I can whoop up on in Scramble! Like is comical how frustrated he gets when I beat him, time and time again. (I even played with no cheats once and let him play with two, and I still got him!) If you haven't tried it, download it--you will be addicted! :)

Did you hear that Ben and Jerry's has Greek Yogurt fro-yo (or "Greek Frozen Yogurt)??? I saw an ad for this in the metro station of all places and it makes me happy. Not only will it, hopefully, be even healthier than regular fro-yo, but the flavors that they are starting out with sound promising!

I recently got MG to try Greek Yogurt and he likes it as much as I do. The amount of protein you get from it is awesome and it's so good for you! 

Since we've both been frequenting our local Fro-yo establishment all the time more often than we probably should, this would be a great alternative! I'm excited!
On that note, I need to leave our happy hour and get back to that icky place known as "the real world." I hope you all enjoyed our time at Happy Hour--I know I feel better after airing my worries and happenings!

Look forward to seeing you all next week and finding out what's going on in your world! :)
