This has been a crazy, busy, tiresome week….but I’ll leave it at that :) No need to bore you with boring details! Let’s get on to the good stuff: JELLO SHOTS! I promised last week that I’d give you guys more info on the jell-o shots that we made in syringes for the Brewer Game we went to.
- 2 packets of Jell-o (whatever flavor you’d like)
- 2 cups boiling water
- 1 1/4 cup cold water
- 3/4 cup alcohol (whatever kind you’d like)
Boil 2 cups of water and pour over the two packets of Jello-mix. Stir slowly and continuously for 2-3 minutes.
Add 1 1/4 cup cold water and 3/4 cup alcohol. Stir for 30 seconds. Have your syringes ready and start filling them by just sucking them up in the syringe. Stir the jell-o mix every once in a while so the alcohol and Jell-o don’t separate.
Lay on baking sheet in fridge until firm (we left ours overnight).
**The syringes can be found at Fleet Farm!! Cool, huh?
**The flavor combos we used were Pineapple Jell-o with Malibu Rum and Berry Blue Jell-o with Blue UV vodka… they both worked out really, really well.
If you try them, let me know how it worked! Honestly though, they’re SO simple to make!!
Other than that, we have a pretty busy but fun weekend coming up. Tonight after work we are going to visit Chad’s mom, her boyfriend, and Chad’s Grandma for his Grandma’s birthday! We always have a blast with them so it should be lots of fun. Tomorrow we have a relatively relaxing day. They have a Harvest Fest downtown that we’ll probably go to and take Baylee to walk around, and possibly hit up the Farmer’s Market. Then on Sunday it’s my Half Marathon!!!! I seriously can’t believe it’s almost here already….it seemed so far away, but we are in the middle of September after all! SHEESH, where does time go?
I am excited for the Half Marathon because then I’ll have 2 under my belt! As I’ve mentioned though, we’re not going for a specific time or anything. My running buddy, Jennifer, is doing it with me and we’re just excited to run a race together. My long runs haven’t been going fabulous (i.e. more walking than I’d like) so it’ll probably be a slower half but that’s okay, we’re just doing it to have a great time! The bad thing is we have to leave at 4:45 am on SUNDAY!!!! Our race is at 7 am and we have an hour and 15 minute drive, and we also have to pick up our packets first because we aren’t able to get them ahead of time. UGH, getting up at 4am on a Sunday should be against the law!!
What do you have planned for this weekend??
