Fabulous July

It is July 31st.
Where the eff did the month go?

Anyway, on to the things that made July like, totally fab.

1. Bahama Mamas
I loved Bahama Mamas when I first turned 21 and drank them all the time. Subsequently, my fancy turned to hard liquor and my love of the Cosmo was born. I never looked back. This past month I made a batch of Bahama Mama for a party, and it was like rediscovering an old flame. I drank copious amounts of it. Much like a one night stand with an ex, I woke up the next morning remembering why we broke up in the first place. Holy hangover. However I had an entire pitcher left over, so now I was commited to finishing what I started...
..and if my analogy is right, I think I just had a baby with my high school boyfriend.
Umm... yeah.

(Random story about Bahama Mamas- today I was at the liquor store stocking up on supplies for OBX . I had a handle of Malibu, a handle of house rum, some 99 bananas, and oh yeah, I'll have some of that Absolut Mandarin behind the counter. As the cashier is ringing me up he says " I wanna go where you are going". HA! OBX BABY!!)

2.Spinal Adjustments.
I have been having a lot of problem with my back for years. I've been to chiropractors who adjust me and send me on my way. I feel good for a little bit- but the pain always comes back. Recently the pain behind my shoulder blade has become unbareable. I looked up some chiropractors in my area and found a Dr. Ben Grisafi. I figured, what they hey, let's give this dude a try. Love him. L-O-V-E him. He really examined me and even took x-rays to determine what the problem was. Turns out the pain that I thought was a knotted muscle, was in fact, my spine. I am now going to physical therapy 3 times a week to fix this:

"His legs is strong, but his back is crooked as a politician"
3. Entourage
JEGs and I have been awaiting the return of Entourage since the season 5 finale. We just discovered this show last year and spent countless hours catching up on the seasons (and when I say "countless", I mean we sat and watched six hours straight). I'm not sure where this season is going, but it's got me hooked.
Let's hug it out, bitch
4. Locks of Love
Earlier in the month some of the girls and one of the coaches of my cheer squad donated their hair to Locks of Love. Let me just say, I am so proud of the girls who showed up. I think 10 girls orginally signed up, but only four showed. As a former teenage girl, I think it takes guts to chop 6+ inches off your hair. Lord know I wouldn't have done it at 16, that's for sure.
As and extra bonus, I was able to get the station out to cover it. If you look closely, you'll see me in the back, with the purple shirt on. LB's gone Hollywood. No, pictures, please.

Well, there you have it ladies and gents- another month come and gone. A tip of the glass to you, July '09. You were muggy, and it rained.. a lot. See ya next trip around the sun.
Always and Forever,

I'm with the cashier, I wanna go!!!

Oooo I forgot about Entourage. We spend the summers doing the same thing, having marathon catch-up sessions. We just started Dexter & True Blood. I;m into it...

Have fun on your vacay, I'll miss you in blog-land!

i think it's time to upgrade from cosmo to martini. i made that upgrade (dirty vodka martini straight up) about 2 years ago. there are 2 pluses - less calories, and if you get olives you have food. lol. not to mention, i love seeing people's faces after they ask to try it. they make the best grossed out faces.

i will say, i have regressed this past week to malibu bay breezes. and my god were they delicious.

next week on vacay, the captain and i will be bummin it (cash flow is a little tight), $1 PBR Pints til the keg runs out at Casey's!! it's crap but at least i can get drunk for cheap.
