Celebrating birthdays, horses and Mexico

This weekend was all about celebrating. Celebrating the birthdays of two of my friends, celebrating horses and all things Southern and then celebrating Cinco de Mayo. I think I need a day off just to recover and come down off my sugar high.
Friday was National Founder's day at Frisch's so if you dressed up like the Frisch's Big Boy you got free food. Drew was all over that one since he was Big Boy last year for Halloween. Then my friend Betsy got into town and we went out and celebrated our friend Nate's birthday at Washington Platform downtown.
Saturday was our 2nd annual Derby party. We had such an amazing evening...hats, mint juleps and all, but I'll save the details for another post!
Sunday we went to church and then out to one of my favorite Mexican spots to partake in the Cinco de Mayo fun. Then my friend Betsy headed back to Indiana, which meant sweat pants, grading papers and leftover Derby pie for dinner.
What did you celebrate this weekend??

BIG BOY! I love big boy haha. I have no idea why but I do. My mom has 3 vintage big boy figures in our kitchen actually. ANYWAY.

I'm glad you had a great weekend. I didn't have any mexican food to celebrate cinco de mayo so that is a little disappointing but overall my weekend was good too :)
