Cinco de Mayo!

I’m really a little excited about my first ever Cinco de Mayo party tonight.   Never mind that there’s a board meeting in there too…  I’m all about the Skinny Girl margaritas, having my first churro (using this BAKED recipe), and whatever else my fellow board members are bringing. 

But it’s also little friday, dogs on thursday and thankful thursday.  Please pop over and see the fur-girl’s post, as there are two special birthdays in doggy bloggyland this week!


For thankful thursday, I’m thankful for my health.  I’m healthier now than I have been in quite some time, in no small part because a few friends rather gently nudged me along until I was ready to take control of my health, fitness and eating habits.  There were no recriminations, but when I was ready, I had all kinds of support and encouragement. 

I also have those two adorable furry bundles of love that DEMAND a walk every single day, rain or shine, whether it is convenient to my schedule or not.   It’s a little tricky to clean myself up again to head back to town for meetings, but I guess those of you who walk or workout during a lunch hour manage that regularly.

Are you doing anything to celebrate Cinco de Mayo?

What are you thankful for today?

    I normally avoid the bar scene on Cinco de Mayo, but a friend of mine all but begged me to come out with her tonight after knitting. And after the week I’ve had, I need it!

    We usually celebrate Cinco De Mayo because we met in Mexico and were married in Mexico. We’ll be trying a new restaurant tonite.

    Cinco de Mayo totally got away from me this year. I spent the entire week helping Katie prepare for her first Mother’s Day sale. The greenhouse is exploding!!!

    I’d be happy to take the girls for their walks any old time, Channon. Thankful? They say your health is your wealth and thankfully, I’m feeling mighty rich these days. Thanks for sharing…
