Raise your hand if you think those Justin Timberlake “It’s Gonna Be May” memes never get old. I crack up every. single. time. Ahh, the good ole days of boy bands. We were at my in-laws yesterday for lunch and Camden found and old Now That’s What I Call Music CD – Volume FIVE in their entertainment center and it was FULL of boy band gems including It’s Gonna Be Me. We got such a kick out of reading through the songs and reminiscing! (Read the whole list of songs here!)

Maybe because it’s my birthday month, it marked the start of summer vacation from school, or the fact that it historically holds some of the mildest weather, but I have always love love love the month of May! Who wouldn’t love those things? Nathan and I have both got a super busy month ahead work-wise so I want to be super intentional about doing some fun things! Here’s our To Do List for May:

+ Meet and snuggle two of Camden’s future besties.

+ Beat the crowds and celebrate Cinco De Mayo with a fiesta at home (with homemade margs, of course!).

+ Spend lots of time with my sister who is coming in from Connecticut for a visit.

+ Throw a first birthday party!

+ Stick with the TIU Bikini Program.

+ Celebrate my first official Mother’s Day and my 29th birthday on the same day!

+ Go to my favorite wine and jazz festival with girl friends.

+ Take a weekend trip with friends over Memorial Day

Hard not to be excited for May, right? Do you guys have any fun plans?

    I need that cranberry margarita in my life! We are also having an at home Cinco de Mayo celebration and I can’t wait! And then I’ll probably need the TIU workouts in my life, too… 😉
