I can’t even get into half of the shenanigans we got ourselves into during the 4 days together. I guess it just makes up for the fact that we hadn’t seen each other in 4 years but msg 24/7.
I will fill you in on one such adventure that all started with a cookie.
Ruby Snap, a local cookie bakery, gave out the most incredible cookies during registration and both of us decided that they were the best damn cookies ever so we would need to get more while still in SLC. We ventured out on Saturday afternoon to enjoy the beautiful afternoon (after a morning of pouring rain!) to get the cookies.
Epic cookies in hand, we then decided that we would need to get ‘cute’ coffees since we were dragging hard after our 2am bedtime. As we ventured over to Blue Copper Coffee we passed by a tattoo shop. Of course, I impulsively said “OMG we should get tattoos!!”
That little joke turned into the real thing later that night. ha!
So, right now, I have a slightly itchy, slightly blurry pineapple on my right wrist. I can’t wait to molt like a snake and get some crisp lines. But for now, I am enjoying my new tattoo so much. Love it!!!!!!
Be A Pineapple: Stand Tall, Wear a Crown, and Be Sweet On The Inside
Now, before someone chimes in and says “your tattoo is upside down!”. Yes, we know. Our tattoo artist at Big Deluxe Tattoo even warned us of that. But it’s more of a reminder for us of the weekend, of our friendship, and that we the most bad ass pineapples around. So whenever we just glance down, we see them- the correct way. 🙂
And since it’s Taco Tuesday, I had to make something yummy with pineapples as a nod to the weekend. And since Amanda I had spent a year making drinks together for our Thirsty Thursday series, I decided that a margarita would be a wonderful way at combining all of those things.
This Sparkling Pineapple Coconut Margarita is so refreshing. It would get your in a bit of trouble as it’s light, effervescent, and delicious. But I think that all margaritas can easily get you in trouble! ha!
