Just Like That...A Dreamboat Of A Weekend.

Why hello there!

I hope you are all as chipper as I'm feeling this morning. If you aren't, that's OK too. It was such a good, good weekend. Just wait until you see the Cinco de Mayo fiesta pictures I took below! I don't even have to exaggerate with this statement at all: the weather was absolutely beautiful all 3 days. The sun was shining the whole time and it inspired me to not just rely on my iPhone camera for once, but to bust out my good one to show you all little pieces of our weekend. 

On top of all the fun we had enjoying the weather, I actually sanded, primed, and painted both of our guest bathrooms cabinets white! All by myself, too. I started late Friday night and had them finished Sunday afternoon...pretty proud if I do say so myself.

-Drinks on our deck
-Billy worked in the garage for a bit while me and Rocky swung in our hammock swing for a couple hours. It was pretty much heaven...
-We had date night and went out to eat at Las Margaritas for an early Cinco de Mayo celebration!

{I kept snapping pics of our backyard because it just looks so green and fresh! Loving all the leaves on our trees, finally!}

Now, if I could read Rocky's mind at this exact moment, I'd place big bets that he is thinking:

Ah! Might be my most fav pic of him ever! Such a muffin.

-Mara's communion party at my stepsister's house with all the family! More swinging in hammocks and played corn hole.
-Worked on the cabinets then cooked out on the grill with Billy and had a casual night in
-Not pictured: a random trip to DQ for a chocolate dipped cone. It was so good, I didn't have time to snap a picture of it. ;)

-My girlfriend Rachel had a Cinco De Mayo Fiesta for her daughters 1st birthday. Rachel had been planning this party for 6 weeks and everything was AMAZING.

She did such a good job decorating and I can't even talk about the food spread without wanting to eat it all over again (think: fajita bar, drink bar with margaritas and white wine sangria, massive bowls of homemade salsa, guacamole, and 7 layer dip, my southwest egg roll recipe (yay!) etc. etc.)

It was like a Cinco de Mayo dream...

My girlfriend Rachel and the birthday girl - happy birthday Amelia!

These are the favors for the guests that Rachel made and iced herself! 
They said "Thanks for coming to my fiesta!" So adorable.

By the time Sunday night hit, we felt a little like this while watching The Blind Side...

But but but...where did the dreamy weekend go?

    Ok I had a dream about you last night and it was SO weird. I visited you for the first time and Steph was not there but Beau was. And he brought Stephs meal plan to your house so you could make everything (it was a legit book) and no idea why she had a meal plan. Then Kurt suddenly came but he wasnt Kurt---he was some other face. And then Beau was holding me upside down? So weird but i had to tell you before I forgot LOL

  24. DQ makes the best chocolate dipped cones ever! And that Cinco De Mayo party was soo cute. How fun!

  25. Pretty much need that hammock hanging on one of my trees yesterday. I LOVE HAMMOCKS!

    and the food in this post....the food!!!

  31. your backyard is absolutely beautiful! im so jealous! where did you get that hammock?


  32. I could spend hours in a hammock-- especially if I was overlooking such a gorgeous yard. The birthday girl is precious and I'm in love with all the decorations! I can't wait to have a little one and do themed birthday parties. I know that the first couple will be the most fun for the grown ups, of course! What a fun way to celebrate two different holidays!
