Spa Treatments and Treats (Kentucky Derby & Cinco de Mayo)

Spring has definitely sprung here in Northern Virginia!! It is such a beautiful time of year when the leaves are bright green, you see burst of color everywhere you turn and smell fresh aromas that are breathtaking! Any of you who know us, know how much we treasure weekends at home with no obligations. I decided to treat myself to a day at the spa after brunch..............


After a rough day at the spa, we prepared for the Kentucky Derby!! We mixed up some Fresh Mint Juleps, BBQ Chicken Sandwiches and Mac & Cheese.......


 
and watched the races...


and of course had some tasty dessert!


 
The next morning we woke up and hit the pavement with a great run and admired all the blooming flowers in the yard.
 
 
Clean food is the best after a good run.

 
Today is Cinco de Mayo, which is also our 9 year (dating) anniversary, if that even still counts. It's definitely worth some recognition though. We prepared some Mahi Mahi fish tacos, sat on the porch and reminisced about the Cinco de Mayo that changed our lives 9 years ago, sipped on some Coronas and listened to one of our favorite Pandora stations...the Buena Vista Social Club.

 
Oh and the little girl got a new perch this weekend and she is completely obsessed with it...


Hope you all had a wonderful Spring weekend as well!!
