Monday night my husband and I celebrated (yes we totally went out to dinner and did a toast to it too) my 1000+ Facebook followers!  That was a very exciting milestone for me.  It seems that we are looking for excuses reasons to go out to dinner.....I think it makes (at least me) feel not as guilty for enjoying a night out without all 4 kids.  We have 2 more reasons to celebrate (and are currently figuring out where we are going to go) with a night out which are: 2000+ Pinterest followers and 100+ (not huge, but huge for me!) Instagram followers.  Needless to say, I'm excited!  

Tonight is an overdue night out with some good friends.  I have been looking forward to this for about a week now!  We are going to have some good food, good beers, lots of laughs and did I mention that where we are going is walking distance, bonus!!

Today I made a new cocktail and was initially going for a blue one.....but that Midori kept calling my name!  I mean, who am I to deny it being poured into my cocktail?

This cocktail is delicious.  It is a perfect blend of everything in it.  I love it.  This is a total cocktail that you could make a huge batch of for a party and then just stir it up and pour it over ice and serve.  Oh and believe me your guests will approve!  I'm kind of thinking this cocktail is a good excuse to have a BBQ in the summer.....like you need an excuse.......but if you did, this is totally a good one!

Here is my recipe for Green Tropics:
