Weekend Update | Cinco de Mayo

Well this past weekend went way too fast like it usually does. My husband spent most of Saturday and Sunday working on school work so I was pretty much on my own. 

My weekend started early since my day on Friday at work was pretty low key. At work, there was a gumbo tasting where different teams cooked gumbo to see who had the best gumbo recipe. And being from the north, I haven't had gumbo before so it was interesting to taste. I do not like seafood so I did not try any with seafood in it, but there were a few recipes with chicken and sausage and they were pretty good.

Then, I hosted a baby shower for my friend Kristen. More details on that later this week.
After work, my husband and I went to dinner at Applebees using a gift card so we did not have to spend any actual money. Love that. Then we went to our favorite frozen yogurt place, Sweet Frog. Always delicious. Then we headed over to the movie theater to see Iron Man 3. It was a good movie, just like all the other ones.

Since Richard was at school, I had some me time. I drank hot chocolate, stretched, worked out, ate, went shopping for food for the party we went to, made the food and then relaxed. Fun stuff right there. Then that night we went over to a friend's house to celebrate a birthday and Cinco de Mayo. Mmm daiquiris with flavored rum. Delicious.

Sunday was another me day where I cleaned and did laundry and just hung out. I also made my first green smoothie. It was good but next time I need to sweeten it up a little and add more fruit. This time I made it with almond milk, spinach, a banana and strawberries. And no I could not even taste the spinach. I was surprised. But I do love smoothies so I think I will try it again!

Linking up with Sami today
