Happy National Margarita Day!

Apparently February 22nd is National Margarita Day.  Who knew?  Kathie Lee and Hoda did.  (File under #ThingsIlearnedatthegymthismorning.)

After working out at the gym this morning, I had only one other thing that had to be accomplished today.  I needed to imbibe a frozen strawberry margarita, in the middle of February.  So I painted my nails with Gilty Pleasure Gold (my new fav.) and headed to a Mexican restaurant with the girls.

If you know me, you know that I don't desire, try, or eat Mexican food.  But that is where they keep the margaritas.  I ordered my drink and settled on the safest option I could find...chicken tacos with rice and beans.  In my mind I pictured black beans but in reality I got refried beans with cheese on top.  And you'll NEVER guess what I did! 

I tried them!  (After some peer pressure.)  I also inadvertently tried something very hot and spicy but we won't count that.

I did not love them but I ate them and swallowed them and I am digesting them as I type.  Two down...three to go!  Hummus is next on the list.

My margarita was delicious...obviously!

On the way home we discussed our bucket lists.  Friend #1 wants to devirginize a short boy while riding an elephant and friend #2 wants to successfully scam a non-profit and ride in the pouch of a kangaroo. 

I apparently need to dream bigger because all I want to do is find a rich, piano playing husband and give his money away to people who need it.



  1. Congrats, you did more than I would be willing to do. The texture of the beans would make me gag. I will never try humus, it is just too disgusting.

  2. Haha don't tell me that! I haven't worked up the nerve to actually try it yet.

  3. Hummus is yummy! Start with a flavored hummus first and some crispy pita chips. I recommend a roasted red pepper hummus.

    Does a margarita today count towards yesterday celebration? I'm going to say yes...

  4. Jenna - Of course it counts! It's like eating Valentine's candy on the 15th!

  5. i want to see the nail polish!
