We’re out of school and trying to save money to get life rolling. So what are we going to do all summer?
Casual BBQ’s and girly drinks of course! One of my Favorite’s is the Frozen Strawberry Margarita.
1 ice cube
10 frozen strawberries
2 tbsp (25 mL) strawberry syrup
1 tbsp (15 mL) freshly squeezed lime juice
2 tsp (10 mL) freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 oz (50 mL) Tequila
1/2 oz (15 mL) orange liqueur
coarse salt, for rimming
In blender, pulse ice and strawberries until ice is crushed. On high speed, blend in strawberry syrup, lime and lemon juices, tequila and orange liqueur until slushy. Serve in a margarita glass rimmed with salt. Makes 1 serving.
Have a couples night or ladies night, BBQ or pre drink- this margarita is the perfect summer drink.
I recently received a great addition to my girly movie collection that I had to share.
THE BABYSITTERS CLUB!
If you are in your early 20s you might not remember, but those 25 + definitely do.
Its a classic, a great film that can’t be forgotten. It’s out there on DVD so go get your copy now. I’ve watched it 3 times already.

You know that moment when you’re thinking something, but you don’t want to be the one to say it? Well, that’s kind of how the twitter world works. People say everything and anything they are thinking. So, we then follow those who think like us, amuse us, and say what we are too afraid to say ourselves. In that case we “Re-tweet” them, or “favourite” them to show our connection.
Here it is my fellow twentier’s . My top 5 people to follow about life in our 20’s.
Follow them for a great laugh, clear thoughts and similar connections- you are not alone. We are all thinking the same thing.
The end of an Era Next week will be the series finale for One Tree Hill. If you are in your 20’s you know exactly what I’m talking about. A series 9 seasons deep, has touched youth all over the world. A show set in a small town around the simple sport of basketball has lead to many laughs and tears. Watching, since the age of 14, I’ve grown up with these characters. You almost feel like you lived in Tree Hill and were friends with Petyon, or dated Lucas. Through all the losses, make-ups and break-ups, it was a show that must have a happy ending. Is season nine ending in the way that will sufficiently provide closure to all the One Tree Hill fans out there? With no Lucas Scott or Peyton returning for the finale, have the writers chosen the best way to end a miraculous series? Our main villain has died, or hero has been returned home. What else is left? I propose it ends with Jullian beginning the production of the “Ravens” television show, which will be identical to the beginning of the One Tree Hill pilot. What do you think? One Tree Hill might just be a TV show to many. But to me, at 22, I’ts been a life -saver, a pass time, something that I’ve grown up with and shown me guidance. Get that tissue box ready, April 4th, 8pm will be a sad time.
We all hear about the highschool sweethearts who go away to different colleges and then someone ends up getting the turkey dump. Typical. But what’s the deal on couples leaving college and going to work in different cities? They never warn you about this one.
Well, as a first hand witness to many couples in this situation it’s a lot easier to manage a LDR at 22 then at 18. You got the couples who video chat/facetime/skype everyday. The couples who drive an hour every other day to see each other. The couples who just text; couples that see each other just on weekends, and some couples that wait weeks or even months to see the other in person.
What do I think? LDR can work. But they can only work if the relationship is strong and both people are willing to put in the effort and time to make it work.
Some people love it, they get there free time during the week and some people go crazy and get obsessive. You have to find the balance that works for you.
I say, when your 18 give it up, the LDR wont work.
In your 20’s… you still have hope. Don’t give up because of the distance, there are ways to make it work.
- Talk once every day/ every other day. (Doesn’t have to be for hours or all day long, but at lest say hi to show you care)
- Do something special for your significant other to show you are thinking about them when they aren’t with you
- Get to know each other’s friends so when you visit each other you aren’t isolated from the rest of the world
- Text each other 24/7 (you will become dependent on the mobile relationship)
- Stalk their Facebook/twitter/ or post all over it everyday
- Over analyze every situation that comes up

"People universally tend to think happiness is a stroke of luck, something that will maybe descend upon you like fine weather if you’re fortunate enough. But that’s not how happiness works. Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessing. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it"
