Tell Us About It...Girls Nights, Chick Flicks, and Cocktail Recipes

Hi bloggy world. I’m back today cohosting our 2016 link up called “Tell Us About It.” Today we are talking girly Valentines day type things…girls nights, chick flicks, and cocktail recipes.

My favorite girls night out activities include mani/pedis, a great happy hour, and trip to Sephora or the Mac counter.

My ladies in Portland and I have this girls night down pat. We usually go to Cheesecake Factory for margaritas and appetizers. After that we walk over to Sephora and Nordstrom and spend way too much money on make up and stuff :) they are some of the best nights though!

My favorite girls night in activities include nail painting, watching Friends or How I Met Your Mother, lots of laughs, good cocktails, and yummy treats.

Some of my faves are:
My Best Friend’s Wedding
How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days
Mean Girls

I mean how could you not love watching these with your girl friends?? I love watching movies that make me laugh. All of these fall into that category. They are movies that I can watch time and time again and always crack up laughing. 

The other night I went out to Cactus with my friend Lyss and we had the best skinny margaritas there. They were so good, but we forgot to ask how they made them. I have been scouring Pinterest for a similar recipe that I want to try. I think these ones had club soda in them because they were just a little bit carbonated and made them oh so refreshing.

Here is my best guess on how it was made:

1 shot of tequila
1/2 cup of fresh lime juice (2 limes worth)
1 tsp+ of agave
1/4 cup club soda
I'm going to try it out next week. I will let you all know if it is perfect or not!!

Also, in winter time I'm all about the hard ciders. I just love them so much.

Link up with us below! Don't don't forget to join us next month:
