Good morning! Did you survive Cinco de Mayo last night? I did not do anything to celebrate, thankfully, because Mexican food is one of my all time favorite things to eat. I probably would have eaten my weight in chips, guacamole and beans. I am however planning to indulge on Saturday at the Derby party that we are having.

|Pimento Cheese Dip|
Along with one of my favorite chocolate desserts ever, Double Chocolate Bourbon Brownies with Frosting.
In addition to the Kentucky Derby this weekend, don’t forget it’s Mother’s day! If you are lucky enough to be with your mom make sure to make her feel extra special by perhaps making her something scrumptious to eat like a coffee cake? I can help you with that as I have several favorites.
I made and then mailed several scrumptious treats to my mother-in-law, including this Triple Cinnamon Coffee Cake,

Or perhaps this Cinnamon Cream Cheese Coffee Cake.
|Vanilla Peach Coffe Cake|
For something a little healthy(ha ha) with the addition of fruit then try this Vanilla Peach Coffee Cake.
If you wanted a cool gift for mom( which would be a little late) check out Stacy’s List of Etsy Favorites from the South Shore Decorating blog If you already have a gift bookmark this post because there are some really great things!
I am looking forward to seeing The Man Who Knew Infinity with Dev Patel and Jeremy Irons.
Lately I have been trying to be more present and mindful in my life and this post from Leslie at Gwen Moss, Thoughts on Slowing Down is a perfect reminder of what we miss when we don’t stop and smell the roses.
That’s it for this week! What did you find that was interesting, a movie a book or a great blog post, if so please share. I hope that you have a wonderful, safe weekend.
To all of the moms out there, Happy Mother’s day! You have the hardest and most selfless job in the world, so take a little time for yourself this weekend, you deserve it.
