Welcome May!

I love the first week of May for so many reasons! Our wedding anniversary, The Kentucky Derby, Star wars Day, Cinco De Mayo, and the begging of warmer weather all in one!

Mark and I were married on the 4th, or "May the Fourth Be With You!" aka Star Wars Day! We'll never forget that one! We celebrated by both taking the day off work, and visiting our favorite movie theater, iPic for a screening of Infinity War! I've so been looking forward to this movie! I love the Avengers movies, and the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, and finally, these two were going to meet! I won't divulge any spoilers, but if you love the Marvel movies, and haven't seen it yet, get to it! It's really good!

Saturday was both Kentucky Derby Day and Cinco de Mayo. I always look forward to heading to Emerald Downs for the special Derby event that they hold every year! Everyone dresses up, and dons an over the top hat, and they have live racing, as well as showcasing the actual Kentucky Derby. The best part is that you can place bets on the race, and drink Mint Juleps in the official Derby glass!

She loves pizza!

My little Princess!

This was Sara's second Derby Day. We took her last year, but she had even more fun this year! We let her run around and play with other kids who were there, and she looked so cute in her little green dress and hat! She enjoyed watching the horses, and playing in the grass and sand. It's an event that we'll enjoy years to come!

She really enjoys seeing the horses!
We usually go out to our favorite Mexican restaurant for dinner and margaritas for Cinco de Mayo, but because we were at the race track into the late afternoon, and Sara and the rest of us were tired, we decided to skip it this year, but I made some delicious margaritas at home that evening. But we always like to celebrate the day!

My homemade El Corazon Margarita

Sunday was a relaxing day at home! Our whole community always has their annual garage sale over the first weekend in May, so I spent some time checking out what was being offered while I took Sara to play at the park. Since it was so warm, we also pulled out her little pool, and let her splash around in the back yard. She had so much fun!

These long warm days have me so excited for the coming days and of course, Summer! I always look forward to this month, and I'm gearing up for sunny skies and tons of fun!

Check out my little video that I made about our weekend!


  1. I love the homemade El Corazon Margarita! Being sooo pregnant, I am just craving for margarita....
