What a Weekend!

A busy weekend full of big changes, fun & friends, and being a little kid.

College is officially over. I tried to hang on as long as I could :) But move out day finally came. It was an amazing 4 years, and I am now an Aggie forever!

Girls Night In! This was some much needed time with a few of my best friends! It is always a good time when you have great friends, delicious food, and a tasty drink! We decided to have a Mexican themed night..enchiladas (we just covered everything in cheese), margaritas, and churros! Follow the rita and churro recipe for your own girls night in! So easy and delicious.
1 cup ruby red grapefruit juice
1/2 cup fresh squeezed lime
1 cup triple sec orange liqueur
3 cups ice
1 cup tequila
* Mix in a blender and enjoy!! Serves 4

Super Easy Churros:
pepperridge Farm puff pastry sheets
1/4 cup sugar
1 tbs cinnamon
1/4 cup butter

* Thaw and unfold the pastry. Cut into 1 in. strips and place on a greased pan. Heat oven to 450 and bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool, wipe melted butter on each strip. Mix together cinnamon and sugar in bowl. Shake the pastry in combo until fully covered. ENJOY!
Trust me these are addictive.

Who says you have to act your age? Sometimes it is fun to be like a little kid again. That is exactly what my friend Laura and I did Saturday. Driving down for an Astros' baseball game we saw a billboard for the Ringling Brothers Circus. And of course we changed plans and went! Best decision of the weekend.
Get there early and you get to get up close to all the animals, clowns, and performers.

Now, it's back to the real world with unpacking and applying to jobs!
