Friday Food and Favorites: Cool Blue Drinks and The Best Swimming Pools EVER

Friday, June 29, 2012

Woohoo...are you feeling summer yet? Finally the days of refreshing dips in cool blue pools are here. Are you enjoying the sweet balmy weather or do you feel like life is the same, just hotter? I'm one of the lucky ones who has a pool, which although I rarely go into, I immensely enjoy looking at from my kitchen window while I chop onions or wash dishes. See? It's good for something.

I also love sitting next to it with my laptop so I can feel like summer. There's just something so enjoyable about looking at the rippling aqua blue water. So for my faves today I'm going to show you some of the most unbelievable swimming pools you'll ever see. But first, to stay with the whole aqua blue summer vacation theme, why not whip yourself up a wonderful blue cocktail? Then you can drink it while you're 'sitting out' by these pools. Enjoy!
