Mimosa…not just for drinking anymore

mimosa-003-de11I’m a big mimosa fan.   I love them (in moderation…and never while driving) as I think they are the perfect drink.  Just a little bit of alcohol with class and a little bit of fruit…perfection!   I’m an even bigger fan of the fact that the mimosa is not just my favorite drink anymore, it is also the must have|must use|must abuse color of 2009!

According to Pantone Color Institute executive director Leatrice Eiseman, the yellow Mimosa color “exemplifies” warm and nurturing qualities associated with the sun and “speaks to enlightenment, as it is a hue that sparks imagination and innovation.” It also is a versatile shade that “coordinates with any other color,” the company said.

Alright, enough about mimosas and what not.  I’m off for the final hurrah of my guilty pleasure, The Starter Wife on USA.   I think Debra Messing  (Will & Grace) is really just a divorced Grace in this show, but I still love it, holla at a hot Friday night!
