Moscow Mules on the Roof

The best thing about my loft is the roof.  I feel like I have my own personal oasis to wonder over all the hopes and dreams in Downtown Dallas.  What a view I have!!

What better way to enjoy my view than to have a Moscow Mule on the Roof. The Moscow Mule is the “IN” drink of the season!  In fact, I’ve read that the copper cups are the most stolen cup at the restaurants and bars that have them.  I didn’t steal mine, of course, I got mine from Sears.  I chose to get the 20 ounce cups so I don’t have to make more than one.

Moscow Mule Recipe:
2 shots of vodka
Half of a ginger beer
Squeeze half a lime in the drink
It’s pretty important to serve the Moscow Mule in a copper cup.  It makes all the difference in the world!!

Be careful though. This is a STRONG drink.  Drink responsibly!




I’ve been having stomach problems for a long time now, but the other night they were so bad that I ended up in the hospital because of the pain. After X-rays, EKG’s and all the other stuff, it turns out my digestive system is a mess.  One of the things I’m doing to help fix that long term is to begin taking a probiotic.

According to WebMD:  “Probiotics are bacteria that help maintain the natural balance of organisms (microflora) in the intestines. The normal human digestive tract contains about 400 types of probiotic bacteria that reduce the growth of harmful bacteria and promote a healthy digestive system. The largest group of probiotic bacteria in the intestine is lactic acid bacteria, of which Lactobacillusacidophilus, found in yogurt with live cultures, is the best known. Yeast is also a probiotic substance. Probiotics are also available as dietary supplements.”

I’ve also read that Probiotics can help with weight loss.  Let’s hope that happens for me!! Here is the probiotic that I’ve chosen.  You can buy these OTC.

Spicy fruit

I went to the doctor recently for my stomach problems. Turns out I’m not eating enough fiber.  I don’t really like fruit, but luckily the ladies at work recently introduced me to Tajin.  It’s a spicy blend that you put on fruit to give it a kick.  Let me tell you, since trying it, I am addicted.  I’m hoping that this will make me eat more fruit and I will have fewer stomach issues in the future!!! 20140616-110310-39790807.jpg

American Flag Swimsuit

I’m not sure why, but I’ve always wanted an American Flag swimsuit for the 4th of July. My eyes are always drawn to them at the stores, but they are always too skimpy or have something weird about them. Imagine my surprise when I saw the perfect flag swimsuit at WALMART!! Yes. It is mine now. I may never wear it, but at least I finally have one!!!
