Our internet at home has been out for the past couple days so I wasn't able to blog. That's why I'm bringing you my weekend recap today!
It was a busy, fun one!
First...you need to know something about San Antonio. Every April, everyone in San Antonio drops everything and throws the biggest citywide party called Fiesta. I'm talking...a 10 day party! There are events going on all over the city at all times of the day for the full 10 days. Parades, fairs, carnivals, shows, a tons and tons of food!
My work has the largest Fiesta wreath over the front door. It's crazy huge! We get a half day off on Friday for the Battle of Flowers parade.
Oh and I might have worn my fun, Fiesta outfit on Friday. Got a lot of comments about my yellow jeans!
Ok they're glowing in this photo! They're not quite that bright!
Our first experience was little different than normal, but still fun! We went to Alamo Heights Night on Friday after work and had the hook up! My friend got us free entry tickets and VIP wristbands. We got into the VIP area where they had free food from Paesano's and drinks. Delicious!
We walked around the festival, watched the cloggers, ate some fried Snickers and fried pickles.
Then it started raining (it had been throughout the day). Thankfully we were up in the VIP area which was inside. I think the rain kept the crowd smaller which honestly, I appreciated.
On Saturday, we helped our friends move. I just love our community!
On Sunday, I didn't wake up early, but I made it to Target by 10am, hoping to find some Lilly Pulitzer items still there. This is what I found...
Haha! Oh well. I found some other cute items, including 2 swimsuits! I must be getting older too because they're really modest!
I also bought these flats that I've been eyeing for a while...
I wanted this one...it was made for me...
Then we went to church, came back home, met my sister at our house and headed to the Taste of New Orleans, another Fiesta event. It was fun and the food was good! It was hoooooot! I guess it's summer here!
Like my cool hat?? Haha. Protecting my face from the sun!!

I think we got the true Fiesta experience with the crazy crowds here!

Because it was so warm, we jumped in the pool back at home. It was our first time in the pool at the rental house! I loved where we lived before and now I super love it! It was amazing!
Well that was a long one! Thanks for sticking with me!
Have a great week, friends!
Linking up with Biana today!
