Weekend Rewind

Happy Monday lovelies!

What did everyone get into this weekend?
Did you celebrate Cinco de mayo?!

You betcha I did.

Mexican food, margaritas, patio's...?
Don't have to ask me twice!

On Friday, we met some friends at the Goat (a bar/housing complex that we hang out a lot during the summer) for a bit and took it easy since we knew we would be celebrating cinco de drinko (creative, I know ;)) the following day.

Saturday, we went and visited our second home (Home Depot) and I picked out a cart full of flowers to plant in our yard and a pot on our front porch. Billy and our friend Mike shopping around for stain for our deck and actually decided to re-do our deck a bit and paint some of it white. I got all the planting done and then it was time to celebrate with friends. A bunch of us went out to eat at a mexican restaurant and then went to my girlfriend Emily's who had people over to watch the Derby and drink some margaritas.

Coral seemed to be the color of the day... :)

this right here, is just pure genius...

I'll take two.
Just kidding, I could actually barely finish one.

On Sunday, we had plans to go kayaking but Billy thought the river was too high because of previous storms we've had recently so we passed on that, and went to the driving range instead. The weather was perfect for it.

Later that evening our friends Marissa and Mike came over for dinner and to hang out.

Planted my favorite daisies in a pot
 for our front porch...

This weekend made me realize how much I love this time of year
where almost everything you do on the weekends is outside. :)

Loving it.

On a more serious note-my Dad had a trip to the ER this weekend. My parents went out to dinner and quickly afterwards he felt extremely sick and had a horrible pain in his stomach. My stepmom Judy said he turned white and she rushed him to the ER. When they got there, he turned to her and said he couldn't breathe. They got him back and did a crazy amount of tests and actually kept him there until about 4 in the morning. Luckily, all the tests turned out OK, and the doctor thinks it was just a bad case of gastristis.

Really scary to hear about, but luckily he is OK.
It puts other small, pety things into perspective.
Health and family are always #1.

Did anyone watch RHONJ last night? Seriously intense!
Sucks me in everytime. Team Melissa, just sayin'.
