Thirsty Thursday: Peanut Colada Sorbet + Loving Lately + A Giveaway

National Rum Day is this Saturday!  For this week’s Thirsty Thursday, I bring you my own concoction, the Peanut Colada Sorbet.
As part of Kenny Chesney’s Blue Chair Blogtender Nation, I was asked to create a recipe for National Rum Day using one of Blue Chair Bay’s rums.  The reps at Blue Chair Bay were kind enough to send me three complimentary selections.  We decided on the Banana Rum for this one.  Lanier and I had some fun trying out different recipes, but this sorbet one was by far my favorite!
Peanut Colada Sorbet
Makes 2 servings.
2 cups Ice
4 oz Blue Chair Bay Banana Rum
4 oz Cream of Coconut
4 oz Pineapple Juice
2 tbsp Peanut Butter
1 tbsp Honey
Strawberries (for garnish)
Add all ingredients to a blender.
We have a Vitamix and used the Frozen Dessert option.  If you don’t have that mixer or option, pulse until you get the proper consistency you like.  If you want more of a smoothie taste, blend longer.  On a Vitamix, switch from frozen dessert to smoothie.
Garnish with strawberries and enjoy!
Click here to find a store near you that carries Blue Chair Bay, and check them out on Facebook here.
Now who’s interested in trying out their very own Blue Chair Bay Rum?  Blue Chair Bay is giving away a bottle to one lucky reader!
Choose between white, spiced coconut, coconut and their newest flavor, banana.
You must be 21 or older and a US resident to enter.

To enter, comment with your favorite vacation spot!
Giveaway ends on Thursday, August 21st at midnight.
Cheers, Y’all!
Loving Lately

If you’ve ever considered a Vitamix, they’re awesome!  I got mine last December for my birthday, and love it!  Crazy to think, but yes, Zappos carries them, and that’s exactly where Lanier ordered mine, and it’s currently on sale.  How can I convince you how awesome?  You can pour an entire canister of whole peanuts (no salt, oil, etc.), just the peanuts, blend it, and it makes creamy peanut butter!  Imagine the possibilities!
My Rolling Storage Crates from Serena & Lily came in yesterday.  They’re already filled with board games and puzzles, but I couldn’t help but laugh at this card.  My kids were already jumping in them as soon as I pulled them out of the packaging!  And speaking of packaging, I loved that I didn’t have to assemble anything.  The wheels and everything were already attached.

Y’all know how much I love my horse sweatshirts that I got last Fall from J.Crew, well guess what?  They’re back!  And available at J.Crew Factory, and currently on sale!  These sold out rather quickly last Fall, so I wanted to let you know as soon as they were available, so you could take advantage of snagging one this time.  Like all of my sweatshirts, I keep them out year round, and wear them any time I can.  Check out all of J.Crew Factory’s newest arrivals here, currently 30% off.  Prices as marked.
So Logan is going to be 3 next month!  Cannot even believe it.  He is the sweetest little boy and so very innocent.  He’ll start his first year of preschool this Fall too.  I’m guessing there will probably be tears, seeing as he has a hard time being left in the church nursery already.  It’s going to be hard for him…and me.  The girls were always eager to be dropped off, but Logan, I think it’ll be a little more difficult.  I know he’ll adjust, but it’s going to take some time.  I know Vaughn will miss his brother when he’s in school too, but I guess it was eventually bound to happen.  But with them being only 13 months apart, they’re super close.  Like when either of them wake up in the morning, they always ask where the other one is.  Thankfully, Logan is only going three days a week, so he and Vaughn will have two mornings a week to hang out and play.  Just like their sisters, I want them to keep that strong bond they have with each.  Here’s to hoping and praying that he transitions smoothly. // Lobster Pajamas
How fun are these glasses?  Would love to have a little celebration using them!
This necklace would definitely add a fun pop of color to even the plainest of tees.  Currently on sale for $20.  Four colors available.  There are so many necklace I’m loving at Baublebar lately.  I got this one for my sister last week for her birthday, on the 5th.
Love the colors, stripes and shape of this dress.
Currently 40% off with code: BRWEEKEND.
Loving my new Lilly Pulitzer Deanna Romper!  This runs small, so be sure and order up a size.  More details on this outfit on tomorrow’s post!
More Lilly Pulitzer Endless Summer Sale Info: SSP Reader Christy said she noticed they’ve pulled all Spring/Summer inventory from their site.  Must mean they’re getting ready for something.  Have a look here and make your assumptions.  I think my guess of Monday may be looking more accurate!
UPDATE: It’s official! The Lilly Pulitzer Sale will begin on Monday at 8am!  Get your wish lists and fast fingers ready!!  And don’t forget to set your alarm!  For more details, click here.
Hope y’all have an awesome Thursday!
