A little bit of this, a little bit of that

Hi guys, happy Wednesday! Did you have a great Cinco de Mayo yesterday? I certainly did. Josh and I enjoyed tacos piled full of delicious toppings, a huge bowl of chips with queso and homemade salsa, a margarita for me and beer for him. (Side note: go to pinterest right now and pin the Pioneer Woman's salsa recipe. To.die.for.) We sat out on our patio with the string lights on, candles flickering and Pandora streaming. It was nothing short of wonderful. The temperature was perfect and we were out there for over an hour chatting about anything and everything. A fabulous Cinco de Mayo indeed.

See that cute little succulent right there? That's what Josh and I are giving for Mothers Day this year. My granny was at our house a few weeks ago and saw my ever growing, now ginormous, succulent and mentioned that she wanted one. I thought it'd be a great idea for all of the mothers and grandmothers in our lives as a sweet little token of appreciation on Mothers Day. Also, when asking my mom about Mothers Day gifts a week or two ago, she told me that she'd love for her, myself and granny to get pictures made. One of the best photographers in town just so happens to be offering mini sessions the weekend after Mothers Day and we're booked for a session that Sunday. I'm so excited and know that the three of us will treasure these pictures forever!

We're working on sprucing up our jungle of a backyard and hope to have our flower bed next to the house done this weekend! When I saw that the backyard was a true jungle when we moved in, I'm not kidding. I really wish I would have taken before pictures, but my dad and uncle got to cleaning it up so quickly that I didn't get a chance (but I'm so thankful that they helped us wrangle it.) We're thinking of doing hostas and some type of flowering plant in the bed. This past weekend we purchased the stones to outline the bed and got those put down. We also have two rose bushes that are inside the flower bed that were planted when we bought the house, so we need to get one more to fill in the space. Our backyard has a long way to go, but I'm proud of our progress!

This past weekend I took a short trip to Charleston to spend time with some of my favorite gals. Life has taken all of us many, many miles apart, but being able to come together as if no time has passed is just so beautiful to me. Time with my ladies is so precious. And last week I hosted girls dinner at my house with two more of my best friends, we dined al fresco on a perfect spring evening. My friends fill my heart with so much joy!

And one last note, I'm celebrating one month of my new job today! My heart is so thankful.

Oh and PS - I have been jamming out to the Tim McGraw station on Pandora. Listening to '90s and early 2000's country music takes me right back to growing up and riding around with my dad in his truck. Go enjoy your Wednesday peeps!
