Who Doesn’t Love a Surprise?

Yesterday, I was so pleased to wake up and find that another mommy blogger who I’ve recently started following honored me with this adorable lemonade stand award! Her blog is so cute and I love reading it, so stop on over and check her out at Mommy Wonderland!

There were no official rules on this award, which is great for me because let’s face it…I’m not always the best at being a rule follower 100% of the time! That being said, here is my cute award!

To continue spreading the love, I would like to pass this award on to two other blogging mamas that I’ve recently discovered and love to read:

Mamma Dweeb

Bigger By The Belly

Stop by and visit them when you have a chance!

The old saying goes, “When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.” I’m putting my own twist on this phrase and saying, “When life hands you lemons, slice ‘em up and use them for a garnish on a Crystal Light Martini!”

For those of you who partake in the drink at the end of a long day, I’m leaving the recipe for you. They are so refreshing on a hot day, on a cold day, and especially on one of those “I am totally at my wit’s end with this kid and I might have to be admitted to a mental institution if I don’t have a cocktail” kind of days. Enjoy!

The Mommyologist’s Crystal Light Martini

Ingredients: (I like to keep these simple so the booze gets in my hand faster)!

Crystal Light Pink Lemonade

Smirnoff Citrus Vodka


Lemon for garnish

A Metal Shaker and a Smile

Fill the shaker about halfway with ice. Pour in Crystal Light until the shaker is about 3/4 full. Add in a shot or shot and a half of citrus vodka depending on how bad your day was. Shake, pour into a nice, chilled ‘tini glass, add a slice of lemon on the rim…and enjoy!

The Mommyologist’s Last Word: “WARNING: Consuming too many Crystal Light Martinis may lead to drunk blogging. I’m assuming this is as potentially harmful as drunk texting, emailing, etc. Proceed with caution.”
