Well I am in Vegas and because of this I am the only woman in America who has yet to see the beloved Sequel. I am hoping some of my friends will want to see it a second time so when I return i don't have to go alone :)
Keeping with my Sex in the City themed posts this week and considering it's Friday (and a holiday weekend at that) I found some cocktail recipes I thought sounded interesting and yummy. If you are having a SITC party or going with your g/f's to see the movie here are some you may want to try!
