5 Things Friday

Here's to the freakin' weekend! WOO HOO!

Josh got his cast removed yesterday! Yay!!!!! I think I am just as ecstatic as he is! He has to use crutches for a bit longer, but at least he can now put some weight on his foot. 

On Tuesday night Josh and I went out to dinner and drinks. I had a Dark & Stormy. My friend Emily introduced these to me last summer, and they are now my favorite summer drink (besides a Bud Light Straw-Beer-Rita). 
Dark & Stormy - Rum, Ginger Beer and a splash of Lime

I picked up a little souvenir while I was in Arizona...a lil planter of cacti. She (yes she is a she) sits right by my computer monitor, and just looking at her makes me happier. She might have accidentally poked me a time or 50 times two, but I am not moving her. I just love my cacti!

A fresh and yummy Heirloom Tomato Caprese Salad. Such a great appetizer/side dish on a hot summer day. 

Another awesome cactus. This one was in front of a restaurant in Arizona! While we have TONS of cactus in South Texas, we do not have the Saguaro variety which are like cactus trees. I couldn't get enough of them on my trip last week. So cool! 2 random Saguaro facts: They can live to be over 150 years old and they can grow to 40 to 60 feet tall. Incredible. #cactusnerd

Have a great weekend!
