Last week my friend, Jana, sent me a text message asking for my Frozen Margarita Recipe! It's one of the few recipes I have memorized. Of course, 1 of the 3 recipes I know by heart is for a cocktail. I haven't made Margaritas in ages. Ever since I sent Jana the recipe, I've been dying for a good Frozen Margarita. You'd think living in San Antonio, I would get my fix. :)
I'm pretty sure I've posted this recipe before but here it is again... YUM!
Easy Frozen Margarita
1 Can Frozen Lime Juice
Pour can of Frozen Lime Juice, unthawed into the blender.
Use the Lime Juice Can to measure the remaining ingredients.
Pour Tequila into the Lime Juice Can, 1/2 full.
Add Tequila to the Blender.
Any Tequila Brand is okay, even the lesser priced versions.
I prefer the Gold Tequila verses the Silver.

VOTE or DIE
Remember that stupid slogan from the last Presidential election? Paris H*lton was sporting tee shirts that said, "Vote or Die" and she did NOT vote. Nice! Today is election day and this is an important election. Don't forget to vote! Last Friday my driver, Ray, a big (and very nice) Iranian guy picked me up from the airport. Ray told me he was going to vote after he dropped me off. I told Ray I had to vote too. So together, a Christian, Texan girl and an Iranian Driver stood in line to practice our civic duties and BOTH vote Republican! God Bless the U.S.A!
I've been dreaming of a pair of Pink Tory Burch flats for the longest time but I could never justify spending the money. Last month I stopped at the Tory Burch outlet in San Marcos, TX and used some birthday money to purchase the Pink Revas.
I want to share something very important that I've learned about Revas. If you're planning to purchase a pair of Reva flats, you MUST purchase a half size larger than your normal size. I usually wear a 6.5, so I purchased the size 7. A couple years ago I splurged and purchased a pair of Black Reva flats in my size, 6.5. The 6.5 has never been comfortable and the back of the shoe constantly slips off my foot! Since that purchase, I've learned you're supposed to go a half size up. If you're planning to splurge on Reva flats, I hope this helps you out. The shoes are really cute but let's be honest, they're not cheap. It was a little sickening when splurged on the Black Revas and they didn't fit properly.
I couldn't believe it when Pink Peonies and Pearls contacted me to let me know I won her giveaway! Mrs. Pink Peonies and Pearls has an Etsy Store and sells the most adorable hand painted bracelets. These bracelets would be great gifts for all the stylish girls in your life and they arrive wrapped and ready to give! Thank you, Pink Peonies and Pearls.
I purchased new bedding in June but it sat in the bag until last weekend. Isn't it funny how new bedding and re-arranging the furniture can give you a new outlook on life? Doesn't take much!

On October 9th my brother and his girlfriend of 5 years, Kate, got married in Southlake, TX. The entire weekend was wonderful! As the guests checked into the hotel, we received a fun gift bag.
Gift Bag Goodies
On Friday morning Kate hosted brunch at one of her favorite places in Grapevine.
The rehearsal dinner was held at Cross Timbers Winery. Jarrett proposed to Kate at Cross Timbers.
P.S. A few people have asked me if I carved the pumpkins. I didn't carve the pumpkins but I wish I had/could. One of Kate's friends is an artist and she did the pumpkins. I LOVE them... cute touch.

On Saturday, Danielle and I started the day with a free Latte (Hot Tea for me) and a pastry from the Starbucks in our hotel. Again, it pays to be a Hilton Diamond member! I've been a business traveler for 12 years. The Hilton has the best "points" program. They should give me points for writing this. :) After breakfast we headed to Rockefeller Center.
Danielle and I on the Top of the Rock. Great views of the city!
(my favorite photo from the entire weekend, it kinda looks fake but it's not)
After spending more money than I had planned on spending at Henri Bendel and a bad lunch, we headed to the Plaza Hotel to view the Eloise exhibit... very cute!
Next we headed to Central Park. My new favorite way to tour the park is a bike tour! It was so fun. Our guide stopped anytime we asked so we could take pictures and walk around. Because he was great, he received a fat tip!
The Friends Fountain!
This is not surprising... Danielle and I had dinner reservations on Saturday night but we both forgot where the reservations were at! Nice! Now since dinner was undecided, we decided to see another show. We were able to get tickets to Avenue Q. It was really funny and politically incorrect... which is always fun (let's be honest).
If you don't have dinner reservations in NYC, it's very likely you'll be disappointed. We had dinner at Room Service. I love the restaurant name. When I was choosing a blog name "Room Service, Please" was one of my 4 possible options. The presentation at Room Service was GREAT! However, the food was average... maybe even a little below average.
Finally, we ended the day with a few more photos in Times Square.

Last weekend I took my annual trip to New York City. Since my sister just had the cutest baby I've ever seen, she was unable to join me this year. I invited Danielle and we had a great time! Danielle and I met at the Newark airport and took the train into the city.
I had a couple free nights at the Waldorf Astoria. For work, I stay in the Hilton brand hotels. Occasionally the Hilton offers special promotions, in addition to earning hotel points. Yay, for 2 free nights at a fancy hotel. Otherwise, we would have been at the Holiday Inn Express. LOL!
We had a late lunch/early dinner at Fig and Olive. I love this place! We had planned to visit the Top of the Rock on Friday but realize we probably didn't have time before our show. Everything takes 2-3 times longer than you expect in NYC.
With the little time we had before the show, we shopped. Of course, we did!
Before the show we stopped at Bull and Bear for a quick cocktail... very New York. It pays to be a Hilton Diamond member, we had a voucher for free drinks at the Bull and Bear.
A trip to NYC is not complete without cab ride photos!
Friday night we had tickets to Wicked! LOVED. EVERY. MINUTE.
After Wicked, we headed to Times Square for a slice of NYC pizza.
Saturday in NYC coming soon....
