Seis de Mayo

= National day for tamales with eggs and beans for breakfast

tamale (2)

It’s a good combo in the morning if you’re, um, moving a little slowly after the previous night’s festivities.

Things didn’t get too crazy over here –I just had a couple sips of margarita- but we had a blast hanging out at our friend Kelly and Shooter’s Cinco de Mayo party

I got off work at 5, raced home to frost the margarita cupcakes



packed up our swimsuits, and the 3 of us headed over.

I didn’t take a ton of pics, but snapped a couple of the chip table and drink counter:

and enjoyed the evening eating chicken tacos (AMAZING- I’m going to try and replicate Kelly’s recipe this week), guacamole, beans, rice and hanging out with friends. Kelly’s baby is one week older than Livi, so it was cute for the little BFFs to hang out together, too.

This morning, we’re enjoying a lazy Sunday and are finally going to decide what to do with the day.

Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!

    I’m going to venture a guess that your playlist didn’t survive very long with your 6% battery life! haha. I need to get better at playlists. I have no idea how people create such fabulous ones. I always end up sticking with an artist that I think, kind of, sort of goes with the mood.

      i took the pic of it this morning- i pretty much always let my phone die before i recharge it haha

    Glad you posted the Pool Playlist; I need some new tunes. It’s still chilly up here in the Great White North, but I’ll be sure to download the ones I don’t have on my iPod yet and pretend it’s summer. Loooove Toby Keith.

    I could really go for a Cinco de Mayo every month! Any excuse for Mexican food is a great one 😉
