Because sometimes you need a drink

It’s finally Sunday which means tomorrow is Monday so it starts all over again but who cares today I can relax. Ok no I can’t really I have work to do but it’s been a long week and even though it’s already 5pm I still have so much to do! Wahhhh it’s just been a very long week. And I’ve had to do it all by myself. Bris first week at daycare, work as usual, laundry, cutting the grass, trying to figure out why my toilet won’t stop running and why the maintenance people haven’t come/called yet, cooking, pumping, cleaning, trying to sleep, taking care of Bri, doing her laundry, the list goes on. I am exhausted. My hat goes off to single mothers.
But today I wanted just a little something for me, something to make me feel a little refreshed. I just wanted to take a little portion of my day and relax. Sometimes you just need a drink to just help you unwind. Why not a strawberry daiquiri ?! Virgin of course because I’m breast feeding but oh I did consider pump n dump.

They’re actually quite easy to make

STRAWBERRY DAIQUIRI
Strawberries (I used frozen)
Lime juice
Ice
Sugar

I think I used maybe a 1.5-2 cups frozen strawberries, 3 tbsp sugar, juice from 2 limes, and a few cubes of ice.

It took a while to blend so I added some water too. I probably should have let the strawberries thaw a little and maybe I didn’t need the ice but oh well my daiquiri is fabulous. And refreshing. Happy Sunday.

    I could almost taste the daiquiri. Seemed a little too much lime. it will take a little time to organize your day, but you are doing fine, I can see that. I am sure that little Miss B appreciates all you are doing for her and keeps her eyes on you too. Love and kisses
    Let me know when you want to try Skype again. Did you try talking to someone else to see if the sound was on?

    Welcome to motherhood, we do it all, we are super woman. You are doing great, it does get easier with time. My hat goes out to all the single mothers out there as you said. We are the back bone of the world. Make sure to take a breather for yourself every once in a while. 😍😘
