Arriba Arriba Arriba! A Mexican Fiesta!

I don't know why I'm so obsessed with screaming "Arriba?"
Both times we went to Mexico, the second I stepped off our cruise ship
I threw on a sombrero and insisted on speaking in Spanglish the whole time.
I've checked with both of my parents on the possibility of having
Mexican ancestors aaanddd that's a big negative. 
Cinco de Mayo is definitely in my top 5 fave holidays.
I could live off tacos.
I crave margaritas.
I'm in love with the whole bright color scheme- the yellows, reds, pinks, oranges!
I guess I just have a little special spot in my heart for that nationality?
I ultimately  blame Spring Break 2009 but that's neither here nor there.

This week I invited a few girlfriends over for Taco Tuesday and skinny margs.
I want an excuse to throw a party.

Mustache props!

Festive napkins, of course.

Jake of course was feeling left out so
I snapped a pic of him with Aunt Shan.

Looking back I'm not sure what the big deal was with the "skinny" margaritas.
The multiples spoonfuls of sour cream may or may not have cancelled out
and form of "skinny" that was taking place that night. 

So that's the la fiesta el wrap up-o! 
I hope everyone's Cinco de Mayo is filled with rays of sunshine,
and margaritas, and loaded coronas annddddd I will see you all bright 'an early
on Seis de Mayo!
