Cinco de Mayo is one of my favorite celebrations! First of all, I seriously never get tired of Mexican food (luckily K. is always craving it too ;). I can make a mean chicken enchilada when I want to. It's also my bestie, Kelly's (@ hello boudreau) birthday. So I have fond memories of celebrating it w/ her drinking beergaritas (see recipe below) out on the island we'd take a boat out to (ah, the things we take for granted!)
I'm SO in love with the Striped Baja Shorts from Free People. I feel like they'd be such a fun summer wardrobe staple!
As I mentioned above, we used to make some killer beergaritas back in our island beachy days. I made this recipe below (adapted from the Blond Cook) last night for a "Tres de Mayo" Dinner party and they were a hit. These would be perfect for any Cinco De Mayo celebration or a tasty cool-down beverage in the summertime.
I'm not throwing a fiesta of my own this weekend, though this party from the Hostess with the Mostess blog is really making me wish I was!
My friend Sarah over at Events Uncorked has an awesome guide to throwing a Cinco de Mayo party as well! A Mariachi band serenade would be amazing?! Annnd lastly, the music to top off the evening via 8tracks.
Have a great weekend everyone!
