Margaritas! And A Bit Of Fundraising

Hello, hello! Just wanted to stop in to make sure you know tomorrow is national margarita day! (As if you didn't notice the countdown at the top there). Anyway I will certainly be celebrating and I hope you might too because margaritas are yummers! You are totally invited over and I will whip you up the best one ever.

Speaking of margaritas, I have been a member of the Desert Sharks PHC (parrothead club, a club for fans of Jimmy Buffett and his music) since I moved here to Tucson and it has been a blast. However, being a parrothead isn't just about partying, it is also about helping out your community which is super great!

"In the process of making new friends and having fun, we believe in leaving something positive behind. Our clubs are open to anyone with the tropical spirit and desire to contribute to the betterment of their communities"

Anyhoo, one of the major events our chapter does every year is a race for the cure here in southern Arizona. So because I like to do things with the club, and because I want help out, I am doing it too! Now I know most anyone who is reading this probably doesn't know me that well so I hope it is not too weird to do this here, but I just thought this might be a good way to get the word out. So if you want to help me raise some money just go HERE and donate however much you please! And if you are not interested I totally understand and don't worry I won't be soliciting you very often I promise.

It has been a little cloudy (with actual rain!) here the last few days, so I will leave you with few sunny photos of tea on the patio which were taken a few weeks ago. (I don't think I already posted these, but if I did please let me know. I have a hard time remembering these things.)

As you can see, the furries LOVE it and so do I.

Happy margarita drinking tomorrow, and don't forget virgin ones are delicious too if you are not alcohol inclined!


ps. Check out my giveaway on the next post down. I had a question if people from outside the States could enter, and the answer is yes certainly! I would love to give as many people as possible the chance to win so tell everyone you know!

  2. Make mine a Strawberry...no salt..haha!

    Love the Kitty Sunshine love....I have one that will find the tiniest sliver of sunlight...the other likes the darkest most hidden spot she can find....they are so opposite....even in colors...one white one black...haha!

  4. OMGosh! I'm so jealous of your sunny weather! We still have 3 feet of snow on the ground here and I probably won't see the green grass till sometime near the end of May. :( I have a furry that looks just like your's! Sooo cute (especially when they're sleeping! lol)

    Love the pics - nice that you've had some sun!

  6. Crum I missed margarita day! Oh well...I suppose I could have one just because. :)

    Oh my - a chair in the sunshine, what more could a cat ask for?
