My Twin + A Watermelon Margarita Recipe

Happy hump day y'all! :)
Yesterday, my friend, Courtney tagged me in a post & challenged me to answer six questions.
Here we goooo!

1. Who is your celebrity lookalike?

My celeb lookalike (or so I've been told repeatedly) is Katherine Heigl!

I swear, when I used to bartend I would get told MINIMUM once a week that I look like her! ha
I consider this a major compliment by the way ;)
I think I look most like her when I have blonde hair & I'm not wearing eye liner, but I couldn't find a picture like that so this will have to do!
Do y'all think I look like her?

2. Best place you've ever visited?

Hmm.. I'd say it's a tie between Cozumel & Vegas!
We were only in Cozumel for one day because it was just one stop on our cruise, but it was GORGEOUS!

& I'm completely OBSESSED with Vegas. I swear I'd go every chance I got if I could! 
I mean, where else can you choke out Jason with your best friend one minute & run into two UFC refs in an elevator the next?!

sidenote - look how long my hair was! #longhairdontcare

Anddd where else can you hold a giant lizard on the side of the street & then walk another five feet & hold the worlds smallest [and cutest] monkey?!


3. What is your favorite summer drink?

Watermelon Margaritas fo' sho!
Y'all have already heard me talk about them a few times & summer has barely begun.
Pappasitos makes the best ones & since I used to work there, I know how they make them...
I thought I'd share that fabulous recipe with y'all:

+6 chunks of watermelon (about 1" around)
+1.5 oz of Milagro tequila (or if you're like me, add a little bit more)
+3/4 oz of Cointreau
+1 oz watermelon pucker
+4 oz sweet n sour (I honestly don't know the exact measurements for their sweet & sour, so you can either use store-bought or if you're looking for a more low-cal option, you can use straight lime juice)

-Muddle your watermelon chunks in a glass until they're all mashed up & most of the juice is out.
-Fill your glass with ice.
-Add your tequila, triple sec, pucker & sweet n sour.
-Shake really good, strain, pour & enjoy!
& if you're feeling really fancy, you can garnish it with a slice of watermelon!

4. If you could have lunch with anyone {living or dead}, who would it be?

Tom DeLonge.

Don't know who he is? We can't be friends anymore. Jk!
I know my girl Kelly knows!!! ;)
But really, he's a singer in Blink-182, Boxcar Racer & Angels & Airwaves.
I've had a thing for him since like 7th grade & he's #1 on my list of people to meet.
Luke Bryan comes in at a close second ;)

5. What is your biggest pet peeve?

When people don't use the correct version of your/you're.
If you're in need of a grammar lesson, email me & I'll be glad to help.
There's a difference between your & you're people, LEARN IT!

6. What is the most-played song on your iPod?

Hmm.. at the moment, it's probably a three-way tie between:

Those were some really good questions! 
Thanks Courtney! :)

I'm tagging Brooke, Candice & Alex!

Here are your questions:
 (and yes, I stole some of them from Courtney!)

Who is your celebrity lookalike?
If you could have lunch with anyone (alive or dead), who would it be?
What is the most-played song on your iPod?
What is the best book you've ever read?
If you could go on a blate (blogger date) with anyone, who would you choose?
If you could only choose one & had to delete the other, which would you keep: Twitter or Instagram?

PS-Wrinkles says hi! (very willingly I might add)

Linking up with Shanna!


  1. First off, you are so sweet for tagging me. But, I can tell you right now, that I have no idea how to answer the first question lol. I'll try though! Thank you. :)

    Moving on, you totally do have a resemblance to Katherine Heigl!

    Vegas! Yes!!

    Your pet peeve is totally the same as one of my pet peeves! Drives me crazy! It's one of the easiest conjunctions ever too!

  2. That martini looks delish! I was a huge blink fan back in the day! They are too freakin funny and I think Tom would def be fun to hang out with...Although Mark is pretty funny too, I always had a crush on travis that weird?!

    Bad grammar is also one of my biggest pet peeves, how embarrassing about that mistake in the Taylor Swift pic! haha
