Birthday Celebration Drinks!

 Another year has come and gone, and it's time to celebrate a birthday. A milestone birthday in my opinion. Thirty-five marks the age where I feel I'm ready for some new exciting things to happen. I have already accomplished finding my better half, traveling part of the world, and having a beautiful family. I can't be certain what will come in the near future, but I know I've decided to give the CPA Exam another shot. Sure I'm older than most of the candidates, but I don't see my career getting any further without it, and we all know women today can have it all, so I say why not.

Anyone else feeling the same way? Like your stuck in a cycle that you need to get out of?

To celebrate, and keeping with my health goals, I decided to have a few friends over and indulge in some low calorie drinks (thank Cascade Ice for sending over some samples) and not so low calorie bundt mini cakes from Nothing Bundt Cakes (courtesy of my mother-in-law).

Yes, they were just as delicious as they look. 
Keeping the setting intimate allowed for my friends and I to talk about the past, present, and future. Needless to say they are a great group of girls and I love them dearly. We were caught up deep in conversation we forgot to do the fun craft of wine glass painting I had planned. Next time, because with these girls there is always a next time.

Below are some pics of the yummy drinks I made using Cascade Ice Flavored Sparkling Water. By far the Peach Mango Rum Shaker was the favorite. Recipes below. You should definitely try switching up your mixer of choice for these zero calorie waters.  You can always play with the amount of alcohol you need, want it weaker add less, want it stronger add more. And always drink responsibly.

Rum Shaker, Strawberry Crush, Coco-Rita
Rum Shaker:

I added slices of Mango to make it more fun

Muddle some Kiwi and Strawberries in the bottom of glass, add ice, and pour in drink. I topped off our pitcher with some colorful fruit.
