Unfortunately, Memphis is a litttttle bit far from the beach. Jeremy and I actually had a day with nothing to do (for once) so we took advantage of it and relaxed. We put on beach-y clothes, mixed up a refreshing drink, and relaxed in the sun on our rooftop. It was silly and it was fun and it was exactly what we needed.
Tommy Bahama understands how important relaxing is. In fact, they have even started something called National Relaxation Day. Yeah, I can get behind that! So, August 15th is officially National Relaxation Day. I expect you allllll to do something relaxing that day! Even if it's just logging onto the Tommy Bahama website to enter to win special prizes that day :)
In honor of National Relaxation Day, there is a huge sweepstakes going on leading up to August 15th. It's called the "Summer of Go" Sweepstakes and they're giving away incredible travel packages each week!! Soooo you pretty much should go enter.
Ok, now I bet you're wondering what this refreshing drink is all about. Well, it's called "Chillax" and it was created by the people over at Tommy Bahama! Let me tell ya, it takes you right to the islands.
Tommy Bahama Chillax
1 part mango puree
1 part Coco Lopez
1 1/2 parts fresh squeezed orange juice
Combine. Shake over ice and immediately strain over cubed ice.
I used one mango and pureed it in my blender. Coco Lopez can be found with the drink mixers in the grocery store. Also, we added some orange slices and cherries! If you realllly wanted, you could add some rum.
Even though we celebrated National Relaxation Day a little bit early, I highly encourage everyone to take time and simply relax!!
Many thanks to Tommy Bahama for sponsoring today’s story and for encouraging me to “Make life one long weekend”
