I am so happy it is almost Fridayyyyyy!!!
For all of you who decided to be awesome and not give up alcohol for a month (why did I decide to do this, again?) here is a recipe for the perfect mojito! It is seriously delicious. Please have one or two for me this weekend :)
What You'll Need:
Rum (whichever you prefer)
1 Can Frozen Limeade
Sprigs of Mint
Muddle the mint, then put the limeade (I usually use 1/2 a container for two mojitos), rum (a shot or two depending on your mood ;)) mint, and ice cubes into a blender. Pulse and mix into a yummy consistency, then put in a fancy glass and drink up
Meet Abbey, the adorable blogger of The Makings of a Mess. She loves target, books and meeting new people. Aka she's totally awesome and so is her blog!
What is your blog name and why did you choose it?
My blog name is The Makings of a Mess. When I first started blogging, it was "First Grade Jitter Bugs," to document my first year teaching first grade, but then life got a little crazy, so I changed it to "The Makings of a Mess," which was and is my life now.
How long have you been blogging for? Why did you start?
I blogged in high school, but then started this blog up in September 2011. I started, as I said before, to write about my experience as a first year teacher, but my view changed from teaching to life in general as an outlet.
If you could be any candy bar what would you be and why?
I'd be a Kit-Kat Bar because everybody needs a break every once in awhile!
What is a favorite adventure you've had?
Last summer, I got the opportunity to go to Sarasota, Florida on vacation with my boyfriend, Jason and two of his friends. It was the first time going there and we went in the middle of Tropical Storm Debby. We had to endure the rain and winds, but also go to explore the beautiful city and beach life as well during me and Jason's birthday week!
What sorts of things do you blog about?
I blog about life in general. The everyday stuff: my boyfriend, what I do on a daily basis, adventures I've been on, fun pictures, and silly quotes from cute, yet crazy kiddos. It's also a place for me to just go and vent about what's on my mind.
What are you really passionate about?
I'm passionate about children and teaching them not only in an educational way, but also everyday values- respecting and being kind to one another. All children should know that they are loved even when they give you an incredibly hard time.
Where can we follow your adventures?
Anything else you'd love us to know about you?
I love meeting new blog friends, so come check out my blog and say hello!
