The Best Way to Spend a Saturday Afternoon

There are lots of great things to do on a Saturday afternoon: organizing my crazy-full guest closet, shopping for new OPI nail colors, venturing to the market with a new recipe in hand. But, I spent last Saturday afternoon partaking in one of my all-time favorite pastimes...consuming queso and mango margaritas with my oldest friend in the world (she's not old, our friendship is).

This is Dr. Nellie. She's fabulous.  And a sassy dresser too. She LOVES to drink mango margs in a straw.

I took a wee bit of a road trip to visit her in where she lives in Greenville, S.C. (aka The Quintessential Charming Southern Town) for some R&R over the holiday weekend.

We kicked off the weekend with a trip to the local Mexican watering hole for some chips and salsa, queso dip and the infamous mango margarita. (Dr. Nellie and I have a historical obsession with mango margaritas, so any chance we get to imbibe, we do our happy dance.)

We didn't just have "a" margarita...

We had a pitcher. Well, 3/4 of a pitcher; it was more economical. Clearly our inner Dave Ramsey forced us to place the order.

And let me tell you something...was that pitcher of sweet, salty, cold, slushy fruit heaven ever worth it.

Just beware: this is what happens AFTER the margaritas.


  1. Are you kidding me???? You actually posted that picture. Wow. Ah but a fun time it was! And you sure do know how to write it up!! Love it!!!! Love YOU!!! So glad you came!

  2. I don't know which I love more: the picture of Nellie or the fact that there's a place that serves queso in a tortilla bowl.

  3. Delightful! So glad you posted the picture of Nellie. But where are the pictures of Kristina, eh? Envious of the margaritas. One day, again, I will have one.
