Tres de Mayo!

First things first. I got my mom the funniest birthday card:



Really. I can't stop laughing! Found a whole rack of these "real photo" cards at Wegmans and had a good giggle in the card aisle over all the pictures and the phrases inside. Love it!

We feasted last night for my mom's birthday dinner! Among other things, we had:
Crab legs!

Edible Arrangements (part of this came with me today for breakfast. YUM.)

Salmon!

Maybe the most perfect summer beer?... I'll have to have another to decide ;)

I made a blackberry sauce and poured it over good vanilla bean ice cream for a little birthday treat - it hit the spot after our delicious dinner! As we were cooking and eating, we were also watching our beloved Capitals play - and the game went into TRIPLE overtime last night! It was absolutely nuts. Sad to say, the hometown team couldn't pull off the W last night. With just over five minutes left in the second game, the Rangers scored. We're down in the series 2-1 now, but don't you worry - the fat lady ain't singing yet! Game 4 is Saturday afternoon (right in the middle of my sister's bridal shower!) and you bet we will be cheering loud and proud and rocking the red!

We're having a Cinco Tres de Mayo potluck at work today, and I made crock pot salsa chicken (of course!) - the whole house smelled AMAZING this morning when I woke up, and I will admit that I actually thought about "forgetting" my dish so that we could just eat it ourselves! I am excited to share this recipe with my coworkers, though, because I'm pretty sure they will all love it as much as we do. Can't wait to get my fiesta on at lunchtime. The only thing that would make it better would be a margarita or two!

Thursday Thoughts:

Yeah.
