Recap of the Weekend!

Happy Monday Lovlies!
How was everyones weekend?  Did you enjoy some Cinco De Mayo festivities?

I know we did! 
I had a full weekend, but a good one! 
Friday was low key.  I met up with some friends for drinks at a local downtown bar.  
It was nice to just sit and enjoy each others company! 

Saturday I enjoyed a very lazy morning.  The weather was overcast and left me wanting to sit in bed with a cup of coffee!  And that is exactly what I did!  I did manage to hang a few pictures!  I also ran my first 4 mile run since recovering from my ankle stress fracture!  The run felt amazing! We decided to run downtown instead of driving out to the lakes, and the trails around downton Minneapolis were perfect!  I enjoyed being able to see Minneapolis in a whole new way!  We ran down by Target Field where the Minnesota Twins play,

and ran by my old Ballet School! 
The run brought back a lot of memories, and made me fall even more in love with my city! 
An afternoon Margarita at Crave kicked off or Cinco De Mayo celebration and had me ready for our Cinco De Mayo get together! 

On our Cinco de Mayo Menu:
These Cranberry Pomegranate Margaritas! 

I ended up making just a straight pomegranate margarita, and boy were they good! 
We also enjoyed these chicken burritos! 

Instead of sautéing the chicken, we grilled the chicken! 
The results were amazing!   I picked up spinach tortilla's from Trader Joe's and thought they complimented the flavor well!  I will for sure be making those chicken burritos again! 
Dessert was a Banana Fosters Chimichanga!

It was a perfect evening full of food, laughter, drinks, friends and games!  Great Saturday night!
Sunday was low key with church and a very very lazy afternoon!  But sometimes you just need one of those days!

So tell me how was your weekend?  Do anything fun to Celebrate Cinco De Mayo, or the Kentucky Derby?

I have this weeks menu/pin challenge coming to you tomorrow!  Stay tuned!
