For the first 3 years of blogging, I shared obnoxious birthday treats on this day (just scroll down and take a gander at my list of previous years posts right before the recipe). Some how all 5 years I’ve neglected to remember to make something Star Wars themed for today even though I actively celebrate it almost as much as my birthday. And now we also have #BrunchWeek to throw into the mix!

Last year was actually the first year that #BrunchWeek landed on my birthday and I made cute scone cakes. This year let’s celebrate Cinco de Mayo a day early in addition to the rest of the mayhem. So how do you feel about… margarita smoothies! After my wine smoothie success I had to take it a step further. And it was a glorious step. Who’s in for a Mexican themed brunch menu? Mexican eggs benedict anyone?
