margaritas

Summer is officially here, and there is nothing more perfect than a frozen margarita on a hot day. I’ve asked Metro Detroiters where can you find the best margaritas in Metro Detroit? Here are the very best places in the area.

Los Tres Amigos is my personal favorite. They make their very own margarita mix. Therefore, no boring store bought taste. I love the jumbo margarita in regular flavored, and the strawberry is a close second. Why do I love the margaritas from here? They’re tart but sweet. Also, they’re potent. I always find myself jubilant when I have one. Los Tres Amigos has a few Metro Detroit locations. My personal favorite is the Canton, Michigan location. Los Tres Amigos, 6600 N. Canton Center Rd., Canton, MI.

El Charro has a one of a kind margarita called the swirl. This margarita is a close second favorite for me. The swirl is a frozen mix of sangria and margarita. The taste is fantastic. I will make a special trip any day to have the swirl. El Charro has multiple Metro Detroit locations, but we prefer the Fraser location. El Charro, 16720 E 14 Mile Rd, Fraser, Michigan.

Imperial in Ferndale boasts ultra cool gourmet hot dogs, tacos, and out of this world cocktails including tasty margaritas. If you’ve never been here, it’s worth the visit for the cool ambiance alone. The food you receive is like a beautiful art presentation. I highly recommend visiting if you’ve never been there. Imperial, 22828 Woodward, Ferndale, Michigan.

Taqueria Mi Pueblo Mexican Restaurant in Detroit has margaritas by the glass, or you can enjoy a pitcher.  This hot Mexican joint is almost a 5-star restaurant. Taqueria Mi Pueblo also is known for its wide variety of cocktails. So, no matter who you’re dining with, there is something to satisfy everyone. Make sure while you’re enjoying a drink that you check out the monthly and weekly specials. Taqueria Mi Pueblo Mexican Restaurant, 7278 Dix Rd, Detroit, Michigan

5 Years In Heaven

5 Years in Heaven, book, book review, John Schlimm

I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are 100% my own. This blog post contains affiliate links.

I always love books that change my life or leave me thinking. Very few books have done that. I would have to say the Bible is one along with Tuesday’s With Morrie. Five Years in Heaven by John Schlimm is about a man that is feeling lost in life. John returns to his roots to search for a new beginning.  He befriends a nun, Sister Augustine, and she changes his views on life and opens him up to see the world through a different lens. Sister Augustine runs a ceramic shop and John falls in love with her amazing talent, and a beautiful friendship forms. Sister Augustine is wise and has a beautiful soul. Below are some of my favorite quotes.

9780553446579

“So much in nature tends to have a calming effects on us, she said. Is there anything simpler than a tree, rainfall, a full moon, or a field of flowers? That’s why nature is the perfect retreat.”

“God never gives us more than we can handle. When we see each joy and, yes, each sorrow that comes to us as a gift, and we greet both with gratitude, that’s what makes us stronger people. That gratitude is what helps build our faith and gives us purpose while we’re here. Otherwise, we would be unbearable.”

“First, by realizing that we are all in this world together. I’m a part of you, you’re a part of me. In God’s eyes, we are all equal and precious.”

“Change is one of the hardest things for us to accept, but it’s one of the only things we are guaranteed to encounter in this life, good and bad.”

Would I recommend this book? Yes, I think this is the first book in a really long time that I would give 5 stars. The friendship that young John and Sister Augustine build is beautiful. You can really see them both growing and benefitting from their friendship. Sister Augustine will open your eyes to life in a different way. You will be looking for your joys and sorrows. Every time I find myself with a sorrow I think of Sister and find a joy to be thankful for. Go out and buy this book, it could change your life or make your life a little brighter. Sister Augustine was truly a blessing from God.

You can pick up your copy of 5 Years In Heaven from Amazon!

This is 40

40, birthday, growth, vacation, travel, pure michigan

Sometimes life takes you in a much different path than intended. A path that you planned down to each little miniscule detail. When that happens you need to just trust God. I had purchased a trip to Miami for my husband and I to celebrate our 40th birthdays together. Then hurricane Erika happened. I didn’t want to risk our safety by making the trip anyways and getting stuck in a hotel while it rained for days. So, I canceled our hotel and managed to get our money back, but American Airlines refused to refund us. Oh, well. My much younger self would have cried for days, my newly 40 self-said to roll with it and make things better.

Since, my birthday falls during Labor Day week it made finding a last-minute place to stay pretty difficult. Well, my requirement was that it had to be located on the beach. We found a 2,000 square foot manufactured home to rent on Lake Huron, in Au Gres. We decided that since we weren’t going to Miami we would bring the kids with us and allow them to each choose a friend to bring. My girls act so much better when they have a friend with them.

I stocked up on all of my favorite junk food essentials because there is totally no calorie counting because this is 40. I brought Combos, smores, and my new favorite find, hard root beer. My husband made sure he devoured a few boxes of Nutty Bars. He seriously should enter a Nutty Bar eating competition!

Well, no picture of me will be included in this blog post. Yes, I had been working on my 6 pack for my 40th. Thanks, to an arm injury, moving, and feeling sorry for myself that didn’t happen. Also, due to mother nature my bikini pictures are for my eyes only. The 6 pack will be determined at a later date preferably after my arm surgery.

I have included a picture of my pasty white legs for your viewing enjoyment! In all seriousness, turning 40 and, life, in general, has taught me not to sweat the small stuff. You need to roll with things. Life has many twists turns and throws you for countless loops. You can either fight it or roll with it. This was not how I would have pictured my 40th, but this is simply what God intended.
