Cinco De Mayo

We had such a wonderful weekend! I’ve never really been into Cinco de Mayo before. Our old neighborhood celebrated it enough without us. But for some reason last week I started missing the old place a little and decided we needed to do something. But first we needed to do some house shopping. And garden shopping. My early Mother’s Day present was a trip to the Home Depot garden center.

We got basil, mint, cilantro, and some impatients. We went to several other stores and ended up with bar stools and a new coffee maker. Our old coffee maker was on it’s last legs. And we’e been looking for bar stools for a month or so and finally found ones we loved.

We picked up a few groceries and headed home. Jason put together the stools and I potted all the plants and herbs.

It’s so awesome to see our place coming together! Also great to be able to finally use our balcony.

We turned on the Cinco de Mayo Pandora station and it felt like home. (So strange that Spanish music feels like home to me when I don’t speak any Spanish. But our old place was mostly Hispanic so I guess I just got used to hearing it all the time).

We set out chips, dip, and taquitos. It was so nice and relaxing to sit outside and talk. We also saw the Super Moon, but didn’t get any good pictures.

Really fantastic night. Loved every minute of it!

*Since we ate dinner by the light of a citronella candle, this will mark another thing off my 52 in 52 list
