|Ya know.. Just hanging with PW. We are besties.|
Then I had kids. As soon as the hassle of diaper bags, packing lunches, public bathrooms with potty training toddlers came in to play. I started staying put. One would think that I would go crazy being couped up at home so often. But to be honest, I love it. I have turned into such a homebody!
But every once in a great while, I need to break loose and do something on my own, no diaper bags, no worries about having car ride snacks, or if one of the kids will have an accident before I find a bathroom. This year, I broke loose and flew to Miami, for BlogHer Food 2014.

I arrived at my hotel at 5:30, only 2-3 hours later than planned. Typically I'm not one to stress. But I was stressed. I was planning a party for my conference sponsor Davidson's Safest Choice that night and had to have all the food and cocktails ready for 8 pm.
Safest Choice was great, they sent me a large package of supplies for the party so I would not have to shop for much, however the hotel lost that package. So I was left to my own devices. Luckily there was a Publix about a block away so I was able to walk to the store to buy all the alcohol, supplies, and snacks. 3 walking trips to the store later and I was all set! (Shout out to my favorite Texan, Katie from Hill Country Cook.... she helped lug trip #1 back to the hotel with me!)

Some ladies were a bit hesitant to try the cocktails, but the ones that did, loved them! To get the full recipe for a Royal Gin Fizz, be sure to check it out on Davidson's Safest Choice's website.
