Mango Margarita Cupcakes with Mango Lime Buttercream Frosting

Mango Margarita Cupcakes with Mango Lime Buttercream Frosting

It’s National Margarita Day, and you know what I’d be doing if I weren’t 33 weeks pregnant. But because margaritas are a pregnancy no-no, this year I had to get creative in order to join in on the celebration.

I’ve seen some delicious looking margarita cupcakes on Pinterest, but you know I’m really picky about my margaritas. I don’t love margarita mix AT ALL. I like my margaritas made with fresh citrus. And the more tropical, the better. So I experimented turning my favorite margarita – Mango Margarita – into a cupcake. And the result? Pretty darn delicious:  Mango Margarita Cupcakes with Mango Lime Buttercream Frosting are almost as good as the real thing.

Li Hing Mui Mango Margaritas

Mango Margarita with Li Hing Mui

Yesterday I partook in a “Doc McStuffins”-themed birthday party filled with three-year olds, mini lab coats and purple cupcakes. The birthday girl is the daughter of one of my dear friends – an adorable (and feisty!) three year old that I’ve seen grow before my eyes into a mini-human. As someone without kids (who had never heard of Doc McStuffins), this whole raising-a-child thing is a kind of a mind-blowing concept. Oh – and if you’re like me, let me clue you in: it’s the newest Disney Show craze featuring a girl who practices medicine on her stuffed animals. Duh.

And speaking of crazy things, today marks my three year Blogiversary. It feels like just yesterday that I published my first post.  I hope the mammas out there aren’t offended by this comment – but I can’t help but think about how this blog has become my baby. I’ve laughed and cried over it, been up at all hours of the night, feel like I don’t know what I’m doing half the time – but love it all the same, and feel so proud of the results. I’ve honestly never stuck with anything this long in my entire life. And the best part is that I still love it. As in, waking-up-in-the-morning-thinking-about-it, going-to-sleep-at-night-thinking-about-it type of love. In fact, my husband would tell you that I’m down right obsessed. But regardless, it’s been a busy three years, including:

a blog redesign. and then another.

countless brand partnerships and even a photoshoot in LA.

an engagement, wedding and honeymoon.

and all things margarita.

Grapefruit Margarita

I’ve been craving grapefruit like there’s no tomorrow. It’s like my body is trying to tell me something. Like, you need Vitamin C! And, make grapefruit margaritas!

When your body tells you something, it’s wise to listen. I mean, you wouldn’t want to deprive yourself of anything important.

Speaking of important – here’s the Grapefruit Margarita recipe Sam and I have been enjoying. It’s tangy and refreshing, and easy to make. Try it at home and let me know what you think!
