Congress Cuban Cocktail + OOTN

 
Happy Cinco de Mayo!  My favorite food is Mexican, so I’m kind of in love with this holiday!  I have tennis this morning, but you better believe I’ll be enjoying chips, salsa, tacos, nachos, margaritas…for both lunch and dinner.  Just typing all that food is already making me hungry!  There are so many good spots for mexican food in Charleston: Taco Mamacita, Minero, Taco Boy, B├ísico, Mex 1, Juanita Greenberg’s, Santi’s, La Hacienda, Zia Taqueria, Rio Chico, all delicious spots!
Last night, I headed out to celebrate my dear friend’s birthday at Congress.  This was my first time eating here, and I’ll definitely be back soon!  They sat us in the very back (smart move) because we were loud, chatting up a storm, having the best time.

I tried this cocktail that the restaurant said is their most popular choice, and I loved it!  I’ll be honest, I had to google the first ingredient, Pyrat – it’s rum, but the mixture of everything was so refreshing.

What I Wore

Mara Hoffman Dress (almost 50% with code: MOTHERLOVE16) // Flip Flops (I honestly put the kids to bed last night, jumped in the shower for a hot minute, didn’t even wash my hair, tossed on this dress and my flip flops were the closest in vicinity when I left, so I wouldn’t be late.) // Smartphone Wallet (on sale, but only until midnight!)
Yesterday afternoon, we swam again, yes, again.  Remember, my kids are water babies after all.  And it’s pretty much impossible to turn down a pool date on such a beautiful, hot day.  It’s supposed to be cooler today, so I knew yesterday we needed to take advantage.

My kids are Star Wars fanatics, so they got the biggest kick out of the fact that it was May the 4th (“May the 4th Be With You”).  I packed their pajamas to change into after dinner at the pool, and made sure they were all Star Wars-themed.  I got the girls’ from Target and the boys Darth Vader Glow-In-The-Dark tees are from J.Crew (and on sale).
Speaking of Target, they had the best selection of girls’ clothes last week.  I made sure to stock up!  Everything I picked up is $9.99 and under!

I’ve had some of you ask about my tennis attire.  Most of my skirts and shorts are old, but I did just get this skort in pink and blue and love both!

Shopbop’s Surprise Sale ends at midnight!  All of these favorites will go back to their original prices tomorrow.   Click on items in image to shop.
I posted my Wednesday Whereabouts post a little later in the morning yesterday.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!
