Making Monday Less Manic

Mondays are not always the funnest of days. Most weeks, they pretty much suck. The sun is on a break again here in my neck of the Pacific NW, but last week I layed out and enjoyed heat in the high 90's!! I am definitely a sun whore ... the hotter, the better!! So, let's make this Monday a little brighter!

This weekend, I was flippin' through channels on TV and landed on Bravo ... my Housewives from NJ were on, and since I can't get enough of them, I re-watched last week's episode. Afterwards, Bethanny Frankel's show popped on (the one of her getting married), and I got sucked in. I never watched the Housewives of NYC, so the only gossip I heard of Bethanny was in my celeb magazines.
Oh my goodness ... this girl cracks me up! I love her personality!! Too funny!! Apparently she wrote a book or three? Yeah, I gotta hit up Barnes and Noble. And she is the creator of the Skinnygirl Margarita. YUM! A girl who is calorie conscious and loves her booze is already a bff in my book!

I had to find out more about this Skinnygirl brand to see what other cocktails she has whipped up (just margaritas so far), and came across this yummy dip recipe she has on her website. I am a big guacamole fan, so I will definitely be giving this recipe a try.

Mock-a-mole (serves 6-8; less than 500 calories if you eat it all yo'self!)

* 2 tablespoons cilantro (finely chopped)
* 1 tablespoon red onion (finely chopped)
* 1 avocado
* 1 cup green peas
* 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
* Dash of Tabasco Sauce (use more if you like your guacamole spicy)
* 1 teaspoon garlic salt
* Pepper (to taste)
* 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
* 1 cup chopped tomato

For more amazing recipes, check out Bethanny's website ... lots of tips and tricks to eating better!

And in honor of these 2 boys coming to Portland this week, here's Sean Kingston and Justin Bieber doin' their thang ... try not to dance. I dare you.

Happy Monday!!
