Five on Friday

It’s that time of week again!  Love Fridays.  We are in NC visiting both of our parents and going to a UNC football game.



Can you believe it’s September already?  It has been so hot here in Georgia.  It’s hotter than it was during the middle of the summer.  These Vineyard Vine Whale koozies are just so adorbs for the beach.  I need them since it is still beach weather here…

Screen shot 2013-09-04 at 2.19.03 PMJust received this trunk organizer.  I have seen so many trunk organizers that are just basic cubes to put things in.  This one has a cooler in the middle.  The cooler can be removed if you don’t need it and the whole thing is fully collapsible.  I saw the exact same one on One Kings Lane for $59!!!  I got mine on Amazon for only $19.99 + free 2 day shipping with Prime!



Yum, yum, yum!  Tropical passion sangria is my new fav!

  • 1 bottle dry white wine
  • ½ cup Bacardi Coconut Rum
  • ½ C Pineapple Simple Syrup (See recipe from link)
  • 1½ cups Passion Fruit Juice
  • Sparkling water (optional if you want fizzy)
  • Fruit : Pineapple, mango, green grapes, limes (1 cup each, sliced, diced, peeled, however you want) for the pitcher of sangria. 1 cup each to divide amongst serving glasses and for the fruit skewers
  • Ice
  1. In a pitcher combine about a cup of each fruit. Add in the wine, rum, syrup and passion fruit juice. Stir well and chill several hours up to overnight. Before serving add in the sparkling water if you like fizz. Add some fruit to each glass and some ice. Fill with sangria. Garnish with a fruit skewer if desired. Enjoy!
