Contest is now closed. See comments below to see if you won! So, I don’t know about you but the Holidays were whirl-wind for us!!! They blew by so fast. I am just now really taking in the fact that they are over. This season we traveled from the West Coast to the East Coast to spend the Holidays with our family! It was wonderful….but it was busy.

There was not much “rest and take in the Holiday season” going on. So David and I took this weekend to take things slow and get our lives back on track after all the travel and running around.

One thing I really wanted to catch you all up on is my new cocktail obsession!!!

Before the Holidays Truvia, a zero calorie sweetener made from the best tasting part of the stevia leaf, sent me some products to try with some great Skinny Cocktail Ideas! They provided me with recipes to all my favorite cocktails made Skinny!!! These are guilt-free drinks that taste amazing!

I wanted to share a couple of my favorite recipes that they provided…. Oh, you want to try Truvia? Keep reading, there just may be a little giveaway waiting for my beautiful blog readers.
