I’m more than halfway through my pregnancy and as the weather warms up, I want nothing more than a refreshing cocktail. While I know that I CAN drink during pregnancy, I’m opting against it for the most part. I’ve had a few sips of wine but I’ll be sticking to the mocktails this weekend and into the summer months.
Here are some of the delicious-looking mocktails I’ve found Pinterest:
Pear basil sipper
Ginger beer mojitos
Strawberry lemonade — a classic!
Blueberry mint lemonade
And these booze-filled cocktails also look good. I can just omit the booze and they’ll taste more-or-less the same, right!?
Peach Mango Pineapple White Sangria
Strawberry and peach sangria
Strawberry and rhubarb sangria
Cheers to the long weekend and our expected Seattle sun!

We tried to celebrate Brandon’s spring break from school this week, but circumstances beyond our control made that less of a reality. We did use “spring break” as our theme of the week for dinners, but the rest, relaxation and sun weren’t in our cards this week. But man, doesn’t that sound nice? I can almost see/smell/hear the sounds of the waves now…
Since I don’t have the time to travel to a fancy tropical location, I scoured the interwebs (thank you, Pinterest) for some things that get me in the mood for spring, sun and relaxation. Enjoy!
