Thirsty Thursday! (2nd Edition)

Happy Thursday, people, and welcome to Thirsty Thursday, the Virtual Happy Hour link up hosted by Trish and myself where you can talk about anything you want! Whatever you would share over happy hour with your friends, or in general, share it here!

This week I have a delicious looking drink for you to feast your eyes (and mouths?) on!

1 C Frozen or fresh raspberries
1 bottle (12 oz) of chilled Corona beer (other beers may be used)
1/2 container (6 oz) frozen raspberry lemonade concentrate
1/2 C raspberry vodka (plain or other fruit flavored vodka would work)
1 C of ice – varies on desired consistency
Garnish: Fresh raspberries, and/or lemon wedges
Blend together in blender the first four ingredients till desired consistency. Pour in glass, garnish and ENJOY!

(I might have to try this bad  boy some point soon!)
Now that we've got our drink, let's get to the Happy Houring!
What's on Your Mind?
I dunno about you all, but I am counting down the days until the pool opens and the weather is warm and sun-shiney! MG commented the other day that I'm holding onto my tan pretty well from Jamaica (considering it was a month ago now...ugh...has it really been that long??), but it is definitely disappearing. Plus, I need to do some evening out after my heinous sunburn situation while I was on vacay. 
I bought two new bathing suits for our Jamaica trip that I can't wait to bust out at the pool this Summer! (Thank you, Victoria's Secret swimsuit sale!)
Speaking of new fashions, I went shopping this weekend with MG (because it was raining and therefore I was able to use that as an excuse to drag him to the mall). I have been talking to him about wanting a cute pair of coral shorts and/or skinnies so we went with that as a mission. Ok, I went with that as a mission. He humored me. We stopped at a couple of places but nothing had what I had in mind. Until we walked into Gap, and I saw THE best colored pants. I tried them on and it was like they were MADE for me! So, with a price tag of $59.95, I purchased them and am now in coral/pink skinnies heaven! Thank you, Gap!
You know, all of this happy houring has got me thinking of a trip MG and I talked about planning this weekend for sometime soon. I haven't seen my girl Genna in months and I miss her terribly (especially since my current roommate sucks ballsack), and she has yet to meet MG. Soooo, MG and I had the brilliant idea that we should try and find a winery (or a bunch of wineries) that are halfway between where we all live. We could meet up there, do some wine tastings, and then stay overnight at a hotel nearby! Quality time with my girl, my guy, her guy, and some vino! What's better than that?? Now, we just need to find a place that's halfway and make our plan! I'm excited!

I'm super excited to be getting my haircut this weekend! I tried to get one before we went to Jamaica but my girl was all booked up, and I hadn't gotten around to booking an appointment til this week. So, come this Saturday I'll be sporting a nicely done 'do, and hopefully we'll have some plans to go out that night  (like perhaps to do a small "We're Moving In Together" celebratory drink or two) so I can sport my know, since I can NEVER get it to look ANYTHING like what they do! 

<--This is what I asked for the last time and my girl did an amazeballs job making it happen for me. It never again looked like this after I washed it and did it myself, but at least I sported it for a solid 24 hours! Hoping for the same thing this time around, too!

And now, since we've talked fashion, vacation, style, etc. I think it's time for me to get back to the real world, and leave our lovely virtual Happy Hour!

Don't forget to Link Up!
I hope you've had fun at our Happy Hour! I can't wait to catch up next week over some new drinks!
