¡Cinco de Mayo!


My hubby Mark and our brother-in-law Travis had planned to get together this weekend to play music. My sister Sarah and I decided to make the most out of their plans by also having a little Cinco de Mayo celebration.

I think this was one of the best Photo Booths we’ve had! It was fun setting up the fiesta backdrop, gathering props, and editing the images in Photoshop. The rest of the celebration went pretty well too.

Despite our hispanic heritage, my family has never celebrated Cinco de Mayo. Growing up we had big family gatherings for Birthdays, Easter, and Christmas with tons of cousins running around as Tejano music blasted. Our Cinco de Mayo party was similar. Instead we kept it small, the kids have grown up and had their own kids, and Mark provided the Tejano Music Mix. My sister Sarah made vegan-friendly spanish rice, borracho beans, and margarita inspired cupcakes, Mark made Carne Guisada with Gardein beefless tips, and my sister Nadia made fresh guacamole and fruit salad. So much delicious food, Mark even cooked up some of the leftovers for lunch today. Hope you had a wonderful Cinco de Mayo!
