A Makeshift Mexico Night

Heyyyy guys, what’s shakin’? Did everyone have a fun weekend? I actually had yesterday off from work for President’s Day and my day was jam packed so I never got the chance to get to the computer to catch up with all of you all.

BUT…I actually don’t have all that much to share from this weekend! Don’t get me wrong, it was a blast; but I didn’t take too many photos so I don’t have much to show for it. Yes, we spent a good amount of time straight chilin’.


This is Lucas’s new favorite way to hang out in his highchair once he’s done eating. Give him his spoon and some leg room and he’s good to go. Works for me…makes it much easier to get things cleaned up!

So Friday night for Valentine’s Day, the three of us had a nice, quiet night in. We ordered a pizza from one of our favorite spots and popped open a bottle of wine after the babe went to bed. Umm, yeah. Bad idea. One glass in for each of us and we were ready for bed by 8pm…in bed just after 9pm. Lame.

Saturday was a great day. I headed out and ran some errands solo in the morning and that evening, Jay and I headed out for a fun night with friends. Before meeting up with everyone, the two of us decided to stop for a quick ‘happy hour’ beer at a nearby Ruby Tuesday’s.

As always, we had such a good time with some great conversation while sitting at the bar. Seriously, what is it about sitting at a bar?

A little while later we met up with the Mexico crew. You may remember that last year, and the year before, our group traveled down to Mexico for the most amazing trip. One of our favorite nights while we were down there last year was our hibachi dinner…

…so we decided to recreate it the best way we could with a hibachi dinner here!


Of course we all had a blast, and there were plenty of shenanigans, laughs, and sake bombs to go around.


So, so, so much fun!


After dinner we all went back and had a makeshift “La Plaza” evening, complete with music and drinks. Almost like the real thing…only a whole lot colder. Winking smile

Sunday was a pretty low-key day. Jay and I spent the whole day without leaving the house and took care of a lot of chores/cleaning/organizing. I also made sure to get in a killer workout so with the extra time I had, I decided to do the R.I.P.P.E.D. DVD I’ve been loving. Yeah, the video is a little cheesy, but the workout is freakin’ awesome. Oh, and the squats. All 128 of them…

Let’s just say this workout certainly does not go unnoticed the next day!

I had a little fun on Pinterest…can ya tell? Winking smile

And with that, I’ve gotta get back to my viewing of The Bachelor, my friends (as I’m typing this out on Monday evening). All I can say is, I reeeeeally hope Sharleen gets the boot soon. She just drives me nutty.

Happy Tuesdayyyyy! xoxo

    Looks like a fun night!

    I gotta agree with you on the bachelor. This whole season is driving me nuts! I still watch it but I have to multi-task while I do because it bores me. Technically Sharleen is smart/realistic but it’s like “Hey if ya couldn’t fall madly in love in 6 weeks then you shouldn’t have been on the bachelor!”

    Our kiddos are growin’ up way too fast! Lucas looks so mature in his high chair~I seriously see Jay when I see his pictures, lol. And I love how you guys are so close to such a big group of people! I find that oftentimes that’s not that easy with both spouses involved, since both have the people they’re close to already.
