Five on Friday + Giveaway!

Linking up for Five on Friday with April, Christina, Darci, and Natasha!
ONE  |  Derby Drinks

John and I have been enjoying some Derby drinks this week in celebration of tomorrow’s Kentucky Derby.  He's been having the classic mint julep, and I have been having the oaks lilly.



TWO  |  Sombrero Cookies


Cinco de Mayo is on Monday!  If you are looking for a fun, but festive treat, you must try these sombrero cookies.  They take virtually no effort at all, yet still are easy and tasty.


If you have more time to make a dessert, try these sugar cookie fruit tacos that I posted this week!



THREE  |  Mean Girls

Can you believe it has been 10 years since Mean Girls came out?! So fetch.


On Wednesdays, we wear pink.

You go Glen Coco!! (Ok, I will stop now...)



FOUR  |  Salida, Colorado

This weekend John and I will be going with our friends, Jared and Faerl, to Salida, Colorado.  I am so excited to get out of town on a mini getaway.  The boys will do some fly fishing, and we will all be bringing our bikes and hiking gear to explore the great outdoors. 

Look at this gorgeous scenery!!




FIVE  |  Giveaway!

Don’t forget to enter the giveaway below - it ends on Monday!! :) :)

  8. "Mean Girls" being 10 years old is so strange! Don't think about other movies because I was on the phone last night with my sister talking about "The Faculty" and slightly lost it when I found out it's over 15 years old--where does the time go?

    And those sombrero cookies would be the perfect dessert at a Cinco de Mayo party--add in a taco bar and you're set!
