My dad was out of town for the weekend which automatically meant girls night for mom and me. I came home from the zoo sweaty and tired, but ready to drink some caffeine for a night of dancing with the mama unit. It was the first 100+ day in Atlanta and I was happily relieved when my mom, slouched in the sunroom with a fan in front of her face, welcomed me with: 

"Do you mind if we just make margaritas and stay in tonight?"

Ab. So. Lutely.

We drank these babies while planning my cousin Leslie's bridal shower. It was a perfectly relaxing Saturday night. Note: When we say "Serves 2-3" we actually mean "Serves 4-6 cups. Because really, who just drinks 1 cup?


It should also be noted that Leslie is neither a mother, pregnant, or engaged to her cousin. Success!
