Happy Happy Thursday everybody!!! I don’t know about y’all, but I’m guessing that some of you are just about sweeted out from Valentine’s Day. I don’t want to sound like I’m complaining, but on Tuesday it’s like everywhere I looked there was something delicious and usually chocolate being handed to me, like aaalll day, for real, people were practically throwing it at my head as they walked by.
Obviously, since it wasn’t my cheat day I didn’t have any, but now I have an armful of candy just sitting around looking at me, waiting to be noshed in a couple of days (insert maniacal laughter here). The next day, there were visible looks of shame and sugar hangover on many many faces, mixed with mumblings of needing more vegetables in their life. I’m totally not judging even a little bit, just so y’all know, I would have been right there with them if I had given myself free reign, but per usual I sat there and ate my grilled chicken with asparagus while eyeing the candy and saying things like, ‘just you wait you naughty little chocolates’, #totallynotkidding.
Anyways, enough candy talk, it’s almost the weekend, AKA Friday Eve to all of you, and if you still want to enjoy a lovely libation this weekend but very much minus the guilt, that is what I’m bringing y’all today. As I have said many, many times in the past, Gin & Tonics are my drink, like always, and since they tend to be on the very low spectrum of calories as far as drinks go, I thought I might throw in some coconut water (for hydration obviously) to see what would happen and it totally came out great. This is a not a sweet drink by any means, just a super light and fresh cocktail that won’t leave you feeling like poo later. I hope all of you are having a fantastic day, have a wonderful long weekend and thank you so much for stopping by!!!
