Five on Friday: Update Edition

Unexpected blogging break! But I think it was good because I have some great content I am curating up for the blog, so stay tuned!

In the mean time, how about a Five on Friday to jump back in?!

My parents came over and spent a weekend with me. We drove to Phoenix to watch our poor Cleveland Indians lose to the Diamondbacks. Despite the sweep, I am hoping this is the Indians year. I am currently all over the Cavs in the playoffs right now. #ALLinCLE

How cute are my parents? Plus no trip out to my neck is the woods is complete without In and Out!

Easter was celebrated! We went to church and then I hosted brunch for us and another couple. It was fun and if I do say so myself, I came up with the cutest way to do a veggie platter.

Cute no?

But oh my, is summer here or what? Some people think summer starts with Memorial Day, but for me, Cinco de Mayo has always felt like the start of the summer. Could it be because we have already hit triple digit temps? I mean really, we actually hit 104 on Cinco de Mayo! Crazy....

Cinco de Mayo is a fun time to bring friends together, feast, and enjoy. I read that more beer is consumed on Cinco de Mayo then the Super Bowl. Crazy. I have always grown up with Mexican culture, most people assume that Cinco de Mayo is Mexican Independence Day. It is not. It is a day that commemorates the unlikely victory the Mexicans had over the French in battle. By the way, Mexican Independence Day is celebrated on September 16th.

My friends and I celebrated getting silly playing games, eating tacos (I set it up as a serve yourself bar-easy) with plenty of my famous guacamole, and of course drinking some classic margaritas.

It isn't all fun and food though! Working out is important, blah, blah, blah...

Happy Mother's Day to all those special mamas out there! I am very lucky to have my mom and mom-in-law! I chose to send them both a bouquet this year with a delivery date of today. My mother-in-law got hers, but I forgot my mom works today. I hope somehow the delivery gets to her! She deserves all she can get for putting up with me!

Have a happy weekend guys and more exciting writing to hopefully come around here soon! 
Thanks for reading!
