Heading to the Beach soon!?! April 16 2014, 0 Comments

Girl's Beach Trip... I'm always in! My friends and I have been going on beach trips together for the last 12 years. Along with the fun(ny) memories we look forward to making, we have a set list of necessities needed to help make this trip better than the last. Included are our favorite drinks, food, beach accessories and did I mention food.

We start off the morning with good breakfast, usually eggs, biscuits and bacon. Then off to the beach with our personalized beach towels , beach bags, sun hats and coolers.


We get settled then it's 5:00 somewhere! Time for our favorite cocktails! Mine is...

Cran-Rum Twister

Bacardi Light Rum

Cranberry Juice

Lemon-Lime Soda

Refreshing and Delicious!

Now, you know we all hate the dreaded sand we find in every crease and crevice, that's when Sand Spiker comes in handy! Keeps your drink, phone and keys out of the sand. Alleluia!!!

After a long day in the sun we are starving!!! What's better than a Fab Frito Pie!?!

4 cups cooked chili or two 15 ounce cans chili with beef

1/4 cup chopped green onions

One 14-ounce, seven 2-ounce or fourteen 1-ounce bags fritos corn chips, plus more if desired
