cornflake dreams.: weekend good things.

weekend good things.

Sooo I know I'm a day late but this weekend was too good not to share :) 

-On Friday h surprised me and said we could go out to dinner wherever I wanted! So I picked a restaurant that has been on my to-visit list for a while: xoco, by chef and restauranteur Rick Bayless. It's a small cafe that specializes in Mexican street food (tortas and churros!) Perfect for celebrating cinco de mayo early. We ordered some guac (duh!), a baja chicken torta and a pepito braised shortrib torta. And dessert: a churro with chocolate dipping sauce and the most delicious toasted coconut tres leches cake. I am still dreaming about that cake.
-It warmed up on Saturday, so we went on a bike ride park where we could do some reading. It was so nice to be outside and enjoy the beautiful weather. Later that night I went over to my friends house and had pizza with the girls. 
- On Sunday I went out to the suburbs for my sister-in-law's wedding shower. It was wonderful to see family and I am SO excited to be apart of her wedding this July!

How was your weekend?
