Happy Month of May!

The Month of May has arrived and there are so many things happening this month – it’s one of my favorite months of the year!

So the weather is getting great all over the United States.  Spring is in full bloom with flowers everywhere – if you follow me on Instagram, you’ll see my posts of blooming buds every day!

May is the month of my Dad’s birthday – Happy Birthday, Dad!  Love you!


Cinco de Mayo is May 5th, literally!

So get out the tequila and let’s make margaritas!

Here is my receipt for making the perfect Margarita.

1 oz        Fresh squeezed lime juice
.5 oz      Agave nectar
1 oz       Grand Marnier
                You can also use Cointreau, triple sec or another orange liqueur
1.5 oz    Blanco (White) tequila
                 Yes, you can use a gold/yellow Tequila, I prefer white
Put all the ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake
Rim Rocks glass with Kosher Salt (adding salt is optional) and fill will clean ice.
Strain Shaken Margarita over ice and garnished with a slice of line.

We celebrate Mother’s Day!

Next week I’ll have some great ideas for what to get mom.

At the end of the month, we will be celebrating Memorial Day, the official start of the summer season.  I and a few friends will be kicking off the summer season with The San Jose Color Run on the morning of Saturday, May 27th.  If you’re in the area and want to join us our team is named Sweet Forbidden.
It’s shaping up to be a busy month of celebrations and events.  I hope your month is just as fun and exciting. I would love to hear what you have planned, so feel free to leave me a comment below!
