Blood Orange Margaritas
Cinco De Mayo is on THURSDAY! YAY! What are you guys making?! This cinco de mayo I am going all out! My family is in town and they have NEVER seen my college and my little life here in CO so it's kind of a big deal. The snow is melted and it's even supposed to be a blistering 80 degrees, amen! So needless to say I feel like i've gotta pee every 20 minutes because I'm so excited! I'm throwing a big dinner for them. Enchiladas, beans, rice, 3 different Marg flavors, the works! Stay tuned to the blog to read all about it :)
Also! Saturday is graduation. Wait, let me say that again, SATURDAY IS GRADUATION! HOLY COW! I pick up my cap and gown on Thursday morning and I think then it will start to feel surreal.
