Thoughts For Thursday

Happy Cinco De Mayo!!  Tonight I am headed out to an art show and dinner which will hopefully involve margaritas and a Mexican feast!  

I will be wearing this dress tonight which just happens to be 40% off right now!  I wore it last weekend as well.  It runs on the large side so definitely size down, I am wearing an XS.
All dresses at Loft are 40% off.
I ordered this one as well.

Our pool opened up this past weekend and the kids have been so excited to go so I took them Monday after school.  Frances Moon was very excited to get to actually wear her bathing suit somewhere.

A few pool essentials.  

We have been dealing with the terrible 2's hardcore with Frances.  I got this slip from her school this week and could not stop laughing at her favorite activity- of course it involved eating.

We saw the most gorgeous rainbow Tuesday night.  I always think they are a special sign from God.  I had had a particularly rough day so it was a beautiful ending to my day.

Sterling had a school performance this week and he played Humpty Dumpty in a nursery rhymes play.   I could not stop thinking about how fast this year has flown by.  I feel like I was just sitting crying in my car the first day he started kindergarten and now he is almost done.  So bittersweet.   This was us after his play, such a sweet boy.
Oh and my top is a new favorite and only $38.
I have been obsessed with Jennifer Weiner's books lately.  I finished All Fall Down which I loved and now I am reading Then Came You.  Her characters are always so relatable, she has true talent for writing.

Mara Hoffman is offering 15% off her site with code MOTHERLOVE16. 
This swing dress has been on constant rotation.  It does run on the large side so size down.
This dress is already on sale and you can take additional 15% off, making it almost 50% off.

I made yet another amazing recipe from GP's cookbook.  I was in such a cooking rut before and her book has really inspired me.  This recipe was the Asparagus Mimosa.

Have an awesome Cinco De Mayo!

12 Mexican Favorites for Cinco de Mayo + Jalapeno Margarita Recipe

Cinco de Mayo is tomorrow and I am not gonna lie it is one of my favorite holidays!  Mainly because I am obsessed with any and all Mexican food and of course margaritas. Last year I hosted a Mexican Fiesta for a few girlfriends- you can see what I cooked HERE.  It was such a fun night.  I went back through my blog and rounded up 12 of my favorite Mexican recipes.  These would be perfect for Cinco de Mayo or any day!  

Matt and I both love a spicy margarita and frequently make our own at home.  I don't really have exact measurements for ours but I found this recipe from Ina Garten that is similar- HERE
