Coffee Talk: Cinco de Mayo Edition

Greetings and happy Cinco de Mayo!

Okay, so I had to google why Cinco de Mayo is a thing… beyond an excuse to make margaritas, of course.

But hey, if you need an easy and delicious margarita recipe, I’ve gotcha covered!

Easy Margarita Recipe

Also, this guac recipe is amazing, and I make these tacos about once a week. I usually make taco lettuce wraps out of mine to save on calories… but then I load them up with sour cream. I know, it makes no sense, but a taco without sour cream is like french fries without salt… what’s the point?

We are actually having friends over tonight, but I haven’t decided yet if I’m going to make the tacos or just serve snacks. Margaritas, however, are a non-negotiable.

Any-who. I hope you’re having a good weekend. We went out with another couple on Friday night, and that was fun. We haven’t done that in a while.

Yesterday was sort of a slow day, although I ended up going out for a photo shoot in the afternoon. Alison had another appointment at one of our regular shooting locations, so she offered me the time slot afterwards. I forgot my white jeans when I met with her on Wednesday (ooops!) so she knew I had a few more looks I wanted to capture.

It turned out to be a really pretty afternoon, so I was happy to take advantage of that. It seems like I always get the worst weather for our shoots.

Last night Paul and David went to the Phillies game, and the girls and I just hung out here. It was relaxing and low-key. Becca and I watched the Queen + Adam Lambert story that I reordered earlier in the week.

We’re both huge American Idol fans, and I loved the season Lambert was on… I was totally rooting for him to win, although it was probably better for his career that he didn’t.

I knew he was an amazing talent, and I’ve been a huge fan since day 1, but I didn’t really realize quite how phenomenal his voice is until I watched the show last night. Anyway, it was fascinating, and the perfect way to spend a lazy Saturday night.

I haven’t seen the Bohemian Rhapsody movie, but we did see the We Will Rock You Broadway musical, which was amazing. It was David’s Christmas present one year. Yes, he’s a fan as well. Maybe I should wait till he’s home for the summer and see if he wants to watch the movie with me.

Speaking of David, he’ll be done with his freshman year on Friday!

I’m sure it will be an adjustment to have him back home, but I’m looking forward to seeing more of him. Any moms of college kids have any advice for us? Haha!

At some point next month, he’ll be able to move into his new apartment, but I don’t think he’ll live there until band camp starts in August. His summer job is close to here, and his friends are up this way. Plus let’s face it, I put dinner on the table {almost} every night and do his laundry. Why wouldn’t he want to stay here?

Meanwhile, Caroline is well on her way to getting her driver’s license. She has her permit, and we’ve been letting her drive around town. I finally called and got her a driving instructor because a) it helps us save on insurance, and b) she needs more time on the roads than we can give her. Plus my nerves can only take so much. She’s allowed to test for her license in July, and she has high hopes for passing on the first try.

So yeah, it should be an interesting summer for our family!

It’s raining here, so no run for me this morning, but I’m helping out in Sunday School today so I need to get off the computer and start getting ready.

I hope you all have a blessed Sunday!
