The Weekend Begins with a POM-tini

The weekend is here! And let me tell you, it is going to be a BIG weekend! It’s Fiancé’s Birthday Weekend! Woop Woop! (Special thanks to this blogger, who reminded me that I only get to say Fiancé ONCE in my life, so I should pretty much shout it from the rooftops, which is what I plan to do!) So anyways, the big birthday is on Sunday, and we both had today off and we plan on having tons o’ fun this weekend! And the weekend starts NOW!

We had a pretty relaxing day. I love just hanging out and doing nothing every once in a while. I got up after sleeping in a bit and pounded out a nice 6 miles on the treadmill while fiancé was sleeping in a bit. I love waking up and running first thing in the morning. It’s such a good feeling.

Other than hanging out with Jackson, and watching TV/movies all day, not much else has been going on. But we did start happy hour a little early today. Since I had just peeled a fresh pomegranate this morning, we decided to put it to good use – in a POM-tini!

We used part POM wonderful, part sparkling water from my Penguin, part vodka, part Pomegranates arils.

They are just so crunchy and full of juice! Yum!

I think pomegranates are my new favorite fruit! So stay tuned, I am sure you are going to be seeing lots more of them in my diet in the coming days/weeks!

Happy Weekend to ALL!!

    Yum, I need to try a POMtini. I think I'd like having the arils in the bottom, unlike when there are olives at the bottom…:)
