I am seriously missing sunshine right now.

It’s been stormy for what feels like ages and I am ready to get in the sun again.

Sitting on my couch watching the rain pour down outside has been a bit tragic…

Especially when I actually WANT to be outdoors (because I am not the outdoorsy type of lady that most CO females are, so that’s really saying something!).

I mean, with Memorial Day on Monday, how in the world can I tolerate more rain??

I need sun, a patio, a grill and a pitcher of this vodka strawberry lemonade!

Add a comfy chaise lounge chair, a great book and a bucketload of sunscreen and I am in heaven.

I think part of me was meant to grow up close to a beach… Too bad my favorite state is completely landlocked. THE HORROR.

If you ever knew me in high school, you would know that Red Robin was the hangout for us choir/theater kids. Yes, we were massive dorks, but as a high schooler with little money, how can you resist bottomless fries and lemonade for dinner on a Friday night?

Their strawberry lemonade was SO good and I could never resist the bottomless option.

Unlimited refills of strawberry-lemon sugar-packed goodness?

Well don’t mind if I do. Just throw in those bottomless fries too…

By the way, my 10 year high school reunion is this year…

GAH how is this happening already?!

I am seriously not prepared/not sure how I feel about going.

Did you go to yours? Is it as awkward as I’m imagining in my head (keep in mind I have no ex’s to run into, so we can remove that factor right now *phew*)?

Reunions and Red Robin aside, this recipe for vodka strawberry lemonade is perfection.

Fresh strawberry and lemon juices make all the difference in this sweet and sour refreshment. I literally can never stop myself from drinking at least two glasses of it whenever I make it. 

It’ll quench your thirst and give you the buzz that you probably wished you had all throughout high school…

Juuuuust kidding. 😉

Well, sort of. It would have been a whole lot easier with some booze, you know?

I’ll be indulging in this sunshine in a glass over the long weekend, even if I am inside looking out on endless clouds…

Thank goodness we know how to grill indoors, that’s all I can say!
