happy May

Happy May! Is anyone else totally blown away by the fact that April flew by in no time at all?! May is at the top of my list for favorite months of the year! It's the month we married, celebrate Mother's Day, etc. But I always loved this month because I could count on one last snow storm and then the beautiful weather would be here to stay, finally! I don't have to worry about cold weather now that we are living in Arizona though, we are welcoming May with triple digit temps today! Hello summer!
It's a good thing Mia loves the water as much as I do since we'll be playing in it almost every day for the next few months! I hope you guys don't get sick of water baby pictures ;)

I just discovered Tai Pan Trading's Deals page and I'm hooked! Home decor, clothes and accessories at a discounted price? Yes please!

These baked chicken taquitos (and homemade guac) were a total hit and I suspect I'll be making them weekly, ha ha! Super easy and more on the healthy side ;)

A little flashback to Mia's first May (I seriously love this month!) and a gorgeous hike at Zion National Park. Also a first for Mia! Oh how I miss Zions!

Dying to try these popsicles! I'm not a fan of peas so this will be the perfect way to sneak them into my diet.

The perfect Mother's Day article (a shout out to both mother and father, really!)

This entire year has flown by so far! Mia looks like she's having a ball! By the end of summer, I bet she will have super crazy swimsuit tan lines! haha

May is seriously one of the best months - hiiiiiii, summer!! :) It's been hot here all week, too. Guess that just means beach and pool dates. :)
Those taquitos and guac look SOOOOO good. I know they'd be a huge hit in our house. I'm def going to have to try them soon.
Have a great weekend!

Those taquitos make a weekly appearance around here! And I'm super lazy and just grab a rotisiree chicken from the grocery store instead of actually making chicken myself. Triple digits?! Bring on the water fun!

I love May too! It might be because I hate April so much but I woke up this morning and was like, It's MAY!!! :) And I also love swimming baby pictures so keep 'em coming! :)

I'm sure 90% of the photos I post this summer will be water pictures too so don't feel bad:)

Those baked chicken taquitos are being made in my house tomorrow. LOVE! And I definitely need to make those popsicles to sneak some peas into my diet too, I hate them! Have a great weekend!

i truly wish that may was swimsuit weather for us! It's gorgeous and spring-like, but I'm so ready for the pool!

Caroline At Windy City Chic said...

I enjoy this month too, just means summer is around the corner! :-) Popsicles sound good especially since I've been craving a frozen treat lately!! I hope that you have a wonderful weekend!!

Elizabeth Birenbaum said...

Oh Arizona. Starting off summer with a bang! Or ending Spring? I don't even know lol. It's been HOT HOT HOT here too but thankfully I'm in the comforts of my AC at work lol. Bring on the pics of the water baby! But just be prepared for me being super jealous of you guys! :)
