Happy Monday! Oh, how I already miss the weekend. So before I go on about this beautiful and delicious drink, I have some news! I am officially starting invisalign! WOAH. I know, random. I’ve been wanting to do it for a while and have finally sucked it up and started the process. The only thing that worries me is that I have to remove the invisalign trays EVERY time I eat and then go brush my teeth.
This is going to be an issue because I snack all the time! Like, every hour. So I will be dramatically changing my daily eating habits and will share my journey on invisalign as things start to happen. I got impressions made earlier this week so in about 6-8 weeks, everything will begin! In the meantime, I just going to snack until I drop! Snack, snack, snack…all day long.
Oh, and this is embarrassing but I’m pretty sure I BIT the dental assistant. Yep. No biggie. UMMMM, I almost got out of the chair and walked out it was so embarrassing! More on that later.
Back to the mojitos!
OH, these mojitos. They are so fresh tasting and delicious. And yay for antioxidants! Not only is the drink so tasty but it’s also healthy for you (right???). I used the blueberries I got from the farmers market, and let me tell ya, on a hot summer’s day these mojitos will do the trick. Just don’t try to taste test 4 glasses of them. Oops.
And if you’re not a fan of rum or want to make it kid-friendly, replace it with some more club soda and make this drink a spritzer! DE-LISH. Delish.
