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?
