A Margarita party.


Definition of a margarita - "a cocktail made with tequila, lemon or lime juice, and an orange-flavored liqueur, typically served in a chilled glass whose rim has been dipped into salt"

Last night, seven other homeschool mums and I met for a margarita party.

My friend hosted the party. She provided the food ( fajitas) and we supplied the margarita components. I brought tequila - isn't that bottle just too cute, with its Mexican hat? The kids and I nicknamed the bottle Jack.

The hostess is originally from Texas and this was a temporary farewell party - she returns to Texas for seven months, to see to family issues.

Was the party a success? Well, I arrived home at 1.30 a.m., so that may give you a clue. And, no, I didn't drive - not after sampling all those different flavoured margaritas.

Did we talk homeschooling? Some of the time.

Our conversation was varied. Warm and friendly. With lots of laughter. And music. And scrumptious food and delish margaritas.

Thank God for friends.

And for margaritas.

Leonie,
That is just ideal! I just made a pitcher of margaritas for my husband and I last night. We enjoyed them while snuggled up watching Ocean's Eleven (for the umpteenth time!).
I think I would enjoy your homeschool group!! Blessings to you and your dear ones :-)
