It’s (almost) the freakin’ weekend.

I’m about to throw on some Rebecca Black, because I’m just ready to start singing at the top of my lungs.


I hate that I have to wait until tomorrow. I’m like a little kid on Christmas Eve.


Tomorrow, Kyle, Jesse, and I will leave for St. Louis. And while that should be exciting enough, what makes it even better is WE’LL BE PICKING UP KRISTY PRETTY MUCH AS SOON AS WE GET THERE. We haven’t seen eachother in about 5 years. That’s about 5 years too long, but we’re convinced the universe will implode if we get together any more than that. Nothing’s going to cure my excitement on this.

Yep! This weekend is the St. Louis Color Run weekend. We have me, Kyle, Jesse, Kristy, our friend Leslie, and our friend Kia on our team Legoman Flowerpants. Kristy’s husband, Todd, was planning on coming, but sometimes things change and life happens. Sucks, but I’m sure he could use a mini-vacation from Kristy.

We’re planning on doing some touristy things, like visit the zoo and the brewery, but one thing that’s settled on?

Drinking. Because we won’t have the kids. And this will be the first time in a LONG time that we have a weekend kid free. We’re not horrible people, but if you met our kids you’d understand the need for a break.

Teaser photo? OKAY!
No, for real, make sure you keep checking up for new posts, because the posts about this weekend are probably going to be pretty epic.

I mean, I made Jell-O shots epic.

The green ones are Margarita. The orange ones are Sex On The Beach.

OH. Wanna know how I made ’em?


So, your basic Jell-O shot recipe is this:

3oz. box Jell-O
1 c. boiling water
1/2 c. vodka
1/2 c. liquor/schnapps/etc.

Or you could just go full monty on the vodka. Whatevs.

Add the Jell-O to your boiling water, then add your alcohol. Once it cools a bit, pour it into your plastic cups and let it set in the fridge. Easy as pie, right?

So, for the specific Jell-O shots I made…

Margarita Jell-O Shots

3oz. box lime Jell-O
1 c. boiling water with a squirt or two of lime juice
1/2 c. tequila (JOSEEEEEEE)
1/2 c. vodka

Sex On The Beach Jell-O Shots

3oz. box orange Jell-O
1/2 c. water + 1/2 c. cranberry juice, heated to steaming over the stove (or even a soft boil)
1/2 c. peach schnapps
1/2 c. vodka

And then for each of these, follow the directions a few lines up there. Simple, delicious, and probably not as great as Todd’s. But whatever, it’ll work. For each 3oz. box, I got 24 Jell-O shots. Not too shabby.

And please, if you plan on drinking, drink responsibly. There’s nothing worse than a drunk person acting a fool and putting other lives in danger. Don’t be an idiot.
