Happy weekend! My boyfriend is here this weekend and we don’t have a whole lot planned but I do have two things on the agenda: impressing him with this coconut margarita (he is usually the one making our margaritas and is very good at it so the pressure is on) and going to both Xiao Bao Biscuit and Chubby Fish at some point (ever have favorite restaurants you just somehow forget about? That is me with both of these spots!) This was a nice week – the perfect mix of fun, family, and downtime. Whatever you are up to, I hope it’s great! Xx
