Hey ladies! Look what I found for us! Don't they just sound too scrumptious? Think about a girls' night this summer with all your besties, the sun room, a pitcher of Mojitos, some noshes, and for dessert Mojito Cupcakes! Woot! Hubby can take the kids to the park or a movie.... :) And we could all watch the latest adventures of whichever "Housewife's Of" is on the tube. Partay! Okay, now that I have that out of my system.... I WILL be doing the above, but have not yet. Pictures are not mine. Gonna make some soon. What do you girls think?
