Friday Night Cocktail & Saturday Night Grocery Shop

Posted on

After the week we had, I felt a Friday Night Cocktail was a must. We didn’t want to really buy alcohol, so I used what we had in the house: tequila! I made a tequila sunrise with 1 ounce tequila, 4 ounces orange juice, and a splash of grenadine.


I had a fairly full day today. From 10-2 I was attending volunteer training at our local animal shelter, where I’ll be volunteering one afternoon a week. I’m happy to be helping, because this is the same place we got Larry from. (Brent has made me promise I won’t bring anymore dogs into our home :)) After that, I studied a bit, made it to the gym for a run, and then went grocery shopping.

This week’s meal planning was a little unusual because we’ll be gone on Thursday and Friday. My brother’s graduation from basic combat training in Friday morning in Fort Knox, so we’ll be traveling down there and spending Thursday with my family and coming back Friday afternoon, so we bought quite a few car snacks so we don’t have to stop for food during the drives.
