One last mason jar post…

Okay, so I really am obsessed with my mason jars. They are just so perfect for summer time drinks! But I will try to keep myself from going too overboard with them. Well, not really, but I will try to keep from posting about them every day next week like I have this week, haha!

I found this Virgin Pina Colada recipe over at 100 Days of Real Food and it is ah-mazing! Seriously! Unbelievably easy and SO delicious! Just 2 ingredients and a few minutes of time and you will suddenly be transported to your favorite beach. 🙂 Christopher and I plan to make these repeatedly this summer!

Virgin Pina Coladas


1 1/2 cups frozen pineapple chunks
1 1/3 cup coconut milk (we used unsweetened and it was still plenty sweet from the pineapple)


Blend and enjoy! 🙂

In other news, yesterday one of our besties’ kids turned 1! We celebrated tonight and had a great time!

Little girl destroying her birthday cake! She loved it. 🙂

Tomorrow we are getting up bright and early to work on some outside house stuff (landscaping, painting, etc) and I’m super pumped to mark things off my to-do list. 🙂 And then we have a wedding shower for a friend and then it will be date night! Hooray! Hope you guys have a fabulous weekend! 🙂

  1. 1st Birthdays are too fun! Like the drink idea. I use coconut milk in soup recipes that call for cream of half-and-half; and like the flavor it gives.
