Weekend Shenanigans

Well, hey there May! We are just cruising right along through these spring months, no? We had a bit of a rainy day Saturday, but the weather yesterday was absolutely amazing!!!! It was in the low 70’s with mostly sunny skies all day. I live for the few weeks we get like this! Of course, we spent most of it outside playing with all the things and soaking in the fresh air.

I completely forgot about Cinco de Mayo. It sort of didn’t sink in that it was May already for some reason. No need to worry, I eat enough tacos on the regular to naturally have celebrated it! Laura and I went to El Bario on Thursday for lunch. I love that I can walk to this place from my office!! I have been meaning to go forever, and it finally happened! We split the guac, because duh!!! And I got the carnitas tacos. Delicious!!!

On Friday, I met up with a dear sweet friend of mine for lunch at The Pizitz. I got a poke bowl, but was talked in to stopping by The Birmingham Candy Company on our way out. And by talked into, I mean, I mentioned when we got there that I wanted to stop, but I was going to keep on walking when we were leaving and someone decided to “just take a look” and I followed. Best. Candy. Ever. That is all I am going to say!

That night, Chris stopped at Papa Murphy’s on the way home and grabbed a meat lovers pizza, a tuscan chicken pizza and some cheesy bread. It was delicious, especially the bread! I love their take and bake concept and I am sure we will do it again.

Saturday, we spent the day hanging around the house. Zoe and I went outside in the morning to play before the rain come and Chris went to run some errands. During nap time, I purged some more out of our dresser and guest bedroom and did about six loads of clothes. When Zoe woke up, we chilled for a little while being lazy and had fun with play-dough. That evening, the rain went away and we spent a lot of time pushing Zoe’s baby around and taking walks. Alllll the walks.

Sunday morning, my sister and the boys came over and went grocery shopping with us. I did the majority at Aldi, picking up a few things at Target. After naps, we headed outside and took a lot more walks with the baby stroller, played some golf and soaked in the amazing weather.

I had picked up stuff earlier in the week to make Carnitas Street Tacos on Sunday evening, happy accident that it happened to be Cinco de Mayo. That pork slow cooked alllllllll day long and it was falling off the bones when it was time to put together our dinner. Delicious!!!

I also made chocolate chip cookies this weekend, and prepped some veggies for snacking this week. Gotta keep that snacking under control!!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!!!

    So much yummy food! We had Chinese food for dinner last night. Lol. We kind of forgot about Cinco de Mayo, too. Sounds like a really nice weekend!

    That cheesy bread looks amazing. I may need to pay some more attention to Papa Murphy’s. The weather was so nice – glad you guys got to get out some and play!

    I love how you had tacos planned before realizing it was Cinco De Mayo. It was pretty rainy/gloomy Saturday, but then a lot nicer yesterday too, so I can’t complain too much. 🙂

    Cinco de Mayo was a wash out for us. It poured here all day yesterday so we decided to order in. I can’t complain though because it was so good! Those pizzas look amazing! I haven’t had a good cheesy bread in awhile and that one is calling my name. Glad you got to enjoy some outdoor fun. Sierra Beautifully Candid

    I need to try the cheesy bread from Papa Murphys – I’m not a huge fan of their pizza. I can never get it crispy enough. But bread? I can handle that a little doughy

    The pizza looks so delicious! It looks like you’re having a lot of fun, that’s great. I remember when my daughter was this age a few years back, she loved to play around in the mud and cook with me. Now she’s getting to the phase with makeup and boys in it, I’m terrified and wish to go back. 🙂

    Good to know I wasn’t the only person who flaked on remembering Cinco De Mayo. Probably because we eat tacos every week so it ain’t no thang lol. Zoe is so stinking cute! I love seeing her cute smiles on IG. 🙂

    I totally forgot about Cinco de Mayo as well, and made a pot of sauce that night. Whoops! But we also consume enough tacos and tequila on a regular basis that it was totally ok <3

    All the tacos! Having veggies prepped is a great idea!

    Sounds like a great weekend. We have Mexican the day before cinco de mayo. We love Mexican and tacos around here too. Love Zoe’s dress!
