Cinco de Mayo Kentucky Derby Birthday

This year, my birthday fell on a Saturday. It is always Cinco de Mayo, but this year it was also the Kentucky Derby!
and what better way to celebrate than with a fiesta?!

Our friends Andrew & Allison came down to hang out with us for the weekend. 
We went out Friday night to dinner before the boys headed to a soccer game and us girls went downtown. Saturday morning we spent at the beach before coming home early afternoon to get ready for the party!

Our downtown evening adventure followed by seeing
the super moon over James Island

my favorite spot on Sullivan's Island

These beautiful flowers were from a palm
and neon yellow pretties

watching the Derby footage

drinks, Mexican food, & yummy pie

I picked the winner! :)

a few of my awesome gifts: 
(necklace, painting, devotional, s&p shakers, chipboard letters, a rug, and a blender)

On Sunday, our community group had a low country boil dinner to celebrate mine and Ashley's birthday(s)! We even got to share in some hummingbird and carrot cake! MMM!

It was a wonderful 27th birthday. 
I can't believe I'm officially in my late twenties now.

Easter Pretties

{I just realized I never did an Easter post. Wow. Talk about really late!}

This year's Easter was low-key. We went home to be with our family for a short weekend.
I decided not to take our big camera, so I took a few snapshots on my phone instead.
A few days beforehand, Matt and I went to our first ever Messianic Seder meal at our brother & sister in law's church. It was lovely evening to remember Passover.

"to Him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by His grace and made us a kingdom, priests to his God and Father, to Him be the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen." Revelation 1: 5-6
