1 thing I want to remember from the last week:
We celebrated my mom’s birthday on Friday with a great dinner and lots of family time. It was great to spend so much time with my parents, and we’re excited to do it again next weekend for Mother’s Day!

Tell me all about your weekend!

    That guacamole looks incredible. Yummm!!! Love both of those nail colors…reminded me that I need reapply (mine are super chipped from the weekend.)

    Happy Birthday to your mom!

    Hope you have a great week!

      Thanks, Ashley! You’d have never known it was his first time making guacamole. I told him he might have to do a guest recipe post about it ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you have a great week too!

      Thanks, Sarah! We’ve both kind of just discovered how much we like guacamole, and now we want it all the time. I love Essie too – it goes on smoothly and is pretty chip resistant!

      Perfect for Cinco de Mayo tonight – enjoy it! Luckily, I work pretty close to my house, so I was able to go home for lunch and have a little of the guacamole to get me through the rest of the day ๐Ÿ™‚

      Haha, I’m pretty sure that cake batter frozen yogurt should be like a weekly occurrence. Hope you have a great week too!
