weekend recap - 8/14-15

So we never made it to a street fair, or the beach...but that doesn't mean that I didn't enjoy this weekend!!! (if you follow me on Twitter you already know I surely did! LOL)

The Hubs and I had an impromptu dinner soiree on Saturday and it was a blast!!!! There were heated debates about random topics, deep belly laughs shared by all - one of those nights that ends well into the wee a.m. hours!!!!

I love setting the table for dinners - fresh flowers, fun table settings!!! (I know it is totally a girl thing - but I totally dig that stuff!) I reused a saved sangria/wine bottle and used it as pitcher for water. I was too busy noshing and drinking to take pictures of all our dishes and tasty drinks....so heres a sample and the menu. I promise to give you the how-tos soon! This was such an easy meal to throw together - I was easily able to chat and feel part of the party while I prepped the food!



Our Menu: a la relaxed summer fun - Moijitos, icy shots of Patron, homemade guacamole and pico de gallo, grilled corn with garlic-lime butter, grilled shrimp & chorizo tacos, refried beans and loads and loads of FUN!


You caught me!  

Sunday = a full day of recovery.....silly me, I thought I could drink 17 million moijitos and shots like I was 21 again LOL!

How were your weekends???
