I love margaritas, but have a hard time w/ the super duper sweet ones. So, naturally the SkinnyGirl margarita was for me.
However, after buying it a couple times, I quickly realized that it is overpriced, doesn’t have nearly enough tequila in it, and is basically composed of a few simple ingredients I already have around the house.
I know there is a very good chance that I am late to the party on this, but whatevs I’m so excited about it I just felt the need to share. I’ve been indulging in one of these the past few nights — so refreshing!
my perfected skinny girl margarita recipe:
vigorously mix in a tumbler:
The reason I say that I might have a problem is that there is virtually no guilt involved in this beverage — cost is low, ingredients are natural, calories minimal…In other words, this means I have noticed that the bottle of tequila is getting lighter and lighter…might need to save for weekends…HA!

So I haven’t painted in WAY too long…
I’m starting some new projects today. I want to give my new easel a workout and break in the amazing upstairs studio space we have in this new house.
Like I’ve said before, whenever I am painting, drawing, cutting, decoupaging, etc. there MUST be music blasting. I’ve been getting a playlist ready for today and thought you might enjoy it.
Here’s the Spotify link.
“First Train Home” – Imogen Heap
“In Your Atmosphere” – John Mayer
“The Re-Arranger” – Mates of State
“Youth Knows No Pain” – Lykke Li
“Walking on Broken Glass” – Annie Lennox
“Two” – Ryan Adams
“Lisztomania” (25 Hours A Day remix) – Phoenix
“Just Hold Me” – Maria Mena
“Human Nature” – Michael Jackson
“Tamacun Live in France” – Rodrigo y Gabriela

I know I say this almost every week, but I am SO GLAD that is if Friday. This week has been crazy!
It is a really busy time at work and there have also been a lot of new and exciting opportunities popping up…more on all that later hopefully…
I know that the Grammys were almost a week ago and in internet land that it is equivalent to about a decade, but I’m still in awe of Adele and her overwhelming awesomeness.
She is simply amazing and her infamous cackle is one of my favorite things right now:
I’m also still in love with her NPR Tiny Desk concert –kinda think this performance of “Someone Like You” is better than the recording!
What’s on your weekend agenda?
For me: busy at work today, yoga TT all day tomorrow, then a free Sunday.

so this is totally a locals-only post, but hopefully that’s OK.
If you love Twitter and live in the Kentuckiana area, you gotta come out to Against the Grain on Thursday, February 23 at 6:00pm. It’s going to be so much fun! And enormous props to my brother, @alexporter82 and @tommyspalding for organizing!
I owe a big “you were right” to Alex and my sister-in-law. They were trying to get me on twitter for a long time and I wouldn’t do it. I have really enjoyed it and think it’s just too much fun.

Truvy Jones and Clairee Belcher – Steel Magnolias
I have seen this movie about 150 times and still think it’s probably the best thing ever. I would love to have any of these fabulous ladies in my life, but these two are pretty flawless.
