Pregnant by the Pool...


This weekend marks The Opening of the Pool...at my parents' house, where 3 grills will provide up to 75 people with the most delish food you have ever tasted, margaritas will flow from 3 gallon containers into umbrella clad glasses, and everywhere you look, there will be kids playing, people playing volleyball, bocce ball, or even a hole of golf. Where will I be? Mingling under the umbrella, with my new maternity suit and coverup and floppy straw hat. But what WILL I be sipping on? I need help, people. I am all ready for something frozen and fruity, but when I count how many good drinks I know with no alcohol, I'm at a loss! Anyone know any great smoothie recipes??? Please share!

boy that sounds fun - it's still chilly up here in the north.

I've been into pomegranate lemonade lately. Feels like a vodka cranberry in a way...

Frozen peaches, rasberries, melon, and kiwi all blended up with enough apple juice to mix. It makes a super yummy smoothie.

Another fun fruit trick is to take frozen mangos and run them through a juicer. It turns out like sorbet, cold, and super yummy. I LOVE fruit and crave it! :-)

Man a day by the pool sounds fun!!! And a margarita sounds so good right now - believe me I feel your pain.... if you find a good recipe let me know!! :)

Virgin pina colada? I actually prefer those to the real thing. I envy you the pool! It would be nice to feel a little weightlessness right now, and the pool at the gym just doesn't cut it.

Ahhh, the pool. That sounds so nice! Can't you just have a tequila free Marg? Or howsabout an ORANGINA with crushed ice? Yum.

My BFF was prego last summer and swears it was pure hell compared to the winter preggo. She had a super hard time with this as well - the good news about summer preggo is you get the sunshine on your face to lift your spirits.

You are getting closer by the minute!!!
