Cinco de Mayo Weekend in Photos

So I apparently missed my one-year blogiversary, because this weekend as we celebrated Cinco de Mayo I remembered back to last year when I put up one of my first “recipe” posts. Really, I just made dinner using other people’s recipes and then took pictures of it…but it was an epic meal nonetheless.

This year, there was less cooking and more drinking. As there should be.

As you probably could have surmised from all my complaining on here, work has been pretty rough lately. So rough, in fact, that the only thing I wanted to do upon arriving home on Friday and was to enjoy a glass of wine on my balcony…….while taking pictures of myself.

My boyfriend is sooo lucky you guys. {more like I’m lucky that he sticks with me after receiving series of texts like this!}

The original plan was to make some dinner together, but we were much too hungry so we just went to our go-to spot (and T-Man’s favorite) Burgers & Brew. I don’t know if I’ve ever gone into too much detail about B&B, but it’s awesome. They have 40+ beers on tap (plus they get limited release beers like Pliny the Younger and Stone’s EnjoyBy IPA!) and a solid list of burgers. T-Man loves their Bacon & Jalapeno burger, while my favorite is their Spicy Guacamole Burger…though I’ve started ordering their Turkey & Avocado Melt. Basically I love avocado, can you tell? I also love that you can sub their veggie patty on any of the normal burgers. A+!

On Saturday, I did some grocery shopping for Cinco de Mayo eats. My basket included tequila and Elmo Mac n’ Cheese. Totally normal, right?

Pineapple-coconut-tequila “ice pops” (they never really froze so they were more like slushies) on top; pineapple salsa & guacamole-making station on the bottom.

We arrived at our friend’s party just in time to bet on the Kentucky Derby. I wrote all the horses names on slips of paper and people paid $1 a horse. I bought 2 horses, and one of them got in last place……of course. {We later did another pool for the Mayweather fight, and I didn’t win that one either! Ha)

The rest of the party involved “Guess how many items are in this bowl full of pregnancy tests and condoms” — beer pong. LOTS of beer pong. — Nick & Laura’s daughter making an appearance…and wearing a mustache — This adorable dog!

The next morning, T-Man took me home and I found my accessories hilarious: a bottle of tequila {mostly full, mind you!} and my empty salsa container — Then, I sat out in the sun and played kickball. Lots of fun and definitely more of a workout than dodgeball!

Woke up to grey skies and a wet bike this morning. It was sooo hard to get out of bed. There are thunderstorms on the horizon today, which is probably a good thing considering we were in the mid-90′s last week!

How did you celebrate this weekend? (if at all)

Did you watch the race or the fight? And more importantly, were you more successful than I was in making some money off of them!?

  1. That burger place sounds great! I love places with unique beers on tap :) And, as you already know, I was at the derby but didn’t make any money. I think Kyle came out even which included buying me multiple $19 champagne splits to keep me happy ;)

    • Coming out even is just as good as winning in my book! Esp when you’re at the event…I feel like it’s easy to go overboard at the actual track!

  2. Your new haircut looks great :)

    Sounds like you had a great weekend. We don’t celebrate cinco de mayo here in Australia but a friend of my boyfriends is Greek so we went to his house and celebrated Greek Easter with him and some friends.

  3. OH my goodness, any character mac and cheese is GREAT! Happy Blog anniversary :) I didn’t really celebrate cinco de mayo although I’ve been craving Mexican food SO badly! I did do a triathlon though :)
