Memorial Monday and Week

Thursday, May 31, 2012

Hey Y'all!

I wrote about my Memorial Day weekend last post, but I didn't get a chance to get some pictures of our dinner on Monday (Actual Memorial Day) so I wanted to share with y'all our cute cupcakes I got for desert and of course our lovely dinner which preceded those cupcakes made by my wonderful chef of a husband. The side dish you see on the right (besides the asparagus) is our attempt to make roasted salsa on some fried tortillas with quesadilla cheese, they were delish!

On our dinner supply trip to Kroger, I stumbled across this beautiful china set that was on sale and matched the adorable napkin rings I had gotten at Crate and Barrel a few weeks back... The crazy thing is that I grabbed 4 that night and because our high school register attendant made a mistake on our total amount due, I got them for free!!! I was so excited about his mistake I came back two days later and bought 4 more sets (I did pay for them this time!). Wouldn't this set be perfect for a spring or summer luncheon or dinner party?!

Tuesday night my sisters and I gathered to give my mom her mothers day gift since she was in Mexico for the actual day. She loved her new iPad as you can see...!

After, we went to our family favorite Mexican Restaurant, Cuquitas, and it was as amazing as it looks. Purely authentic chicken enchiladas with tomatillo salsa, just perfect.

Mr. Gray (the band teacher) and I have been working together to perform an in school concert during our 8th period today, and this was the rehearsal. We played a movement form a Beethoven Symphony and it was so much fun. The kids really enjoyed crossing the boundary from just strings to strings and band instruments, so we had a great concert today!

Tomorrow is the last day of school, so excited!

How is your week wrapping up?

Love to hear your thoughts, 
Love, ~Mrs. S
