Let’s Taco ‘Bout the Weekend

I had SUCH a wonderful weekend. Seriously. It started with a day off and long walk with B, then chilling with my brother who SURPRISED me with a trip to Cleveland, spending time with my parents and then being showered with love during my taco-themed baby shower! I couldn’t have planned for a better weekend and am still feeling in the love bubble from all the greatness of the weekend! (Or maybe it’s from the tacos ….)

The weekend started with a walk around downtown and the Flats on a gorgeous day….

Then some coffee shop hopping with Greg.

Saturday morning B and I took another walk around downtown.20160521_102241

And then it was shower time! Time for a Mexican fiesta. Yes, that is a taco piñata that the amazing hostess, Cuoghi made.Screenshot 2016-05-21 21.35.51

Cuoghi and I.

And yes, we managed to save room after the shower to get dinner with my family. Superior Pho, again.20160521_194148 20160521_194133

Sunday included some brunch at Phuel (and yes, of course I had my favorite yogurt and granola) and more hanging out with my family. I hate when they leave – and it’s crazy to think the next time I see them all B and I may be a family of 3!

Followed by a nice walk on a new area of the Towpath.

And a little work – not that bad when you can be outside enjoying your favorite local tea!

Dinner was on our own. Since we took advantage of the gorgeous weather and spent most of the day outside (and not cooking) – we had leftovers for dinner. A perfect end to a GREAT weekend with family and friends!

Some questions for you:

  • What’s the best themed shower you’ve been to?
  • Which cuisine do you prefer – Lebanese, Mexican or Vietnamese?

I’m linking up today with ErinKatie and the weekly wraps.

  1. What a fun theme for your baby shower, I love the pinata, so creative! I’ve never been to Cleveland but the city looks really nice. I do love Mexican food but have never tried Lebanese – it does look good!

  2. That taco pinata is amazingly delicious looking… and it’s not edible. 😀 Also, I think you really got like 4-5 different incredible food experiences in one weekend. So thankful that we have all those different cultures and cuisines in America. ❤ Are tacos your favorite food?

  3. This is the best shower idea EVER! It would be right up my alley! (Except I would need a much bigger bowl of sour cream–LOL!!) Seriously, your friends did an amazing job. You look radiant in all of your picture Melissa. It’s wonderful you were able to spend some time with your family too. It’s almost time! How exciting!! Thanks for linking.
