Cinco De Mayo (This Texan's VDay)

Happy Cinco De Mayo!

(Cinco duh what?)

In Mexico,
it's a day of celebration
of heritage, culture, & democracy.

(Which I know contradicts the below graphic, but I can't edit that from my phone. Lo siento. My tex-ucation failed me when I was creating my post.) 

In Texas, it's a good excuse 
to pile onto a patio for endless hours
gorging yourself on
enchiladas, salsa, & margaritas.

It's quite heavenly, actually.

For Tyler & me, 
it's a very special day.

Our first kiss was on Cinco De Mayo...
after a night of dancing 
at a dance hall in Arkansas called the Electric Cowboy.

Classy, n'est pas?

So wherever you are
- Mexico, Texas, or even England-
pull out your boots and kick it up for a good night of fun!

(and don't forget your stretchy pants... it's all about the eatin')

Who knows-
 maybe tonight you'll fall in love with your "forever."

Make your own Mexican feast with these recipes:


  1. I like how you and pretty pink tulips always find a way to party and bring on a kiss! Hope you show those Englanders a thing or two about American festivities.

  2. How cute. Happy first kiss anniversary! What a fun night to fall in love. I am totally trying that grilled cheese. xo

  3. looking forward to a strawberry and basil margarita!

  4. hope you bring England a little taste of Cinco de Mayo!

  5. mmm i want that guacamole! i LOVE cinco de mayo..and im hosting a cinco themed blog crawl! you can link up this post :) xoxo jillian:: cornflake dreams

  6. ooh i like the idea of that grilled cheese! how sweet, a cinco de mayo first kiss! so much cooler than valentine's day...:)

  7. I love this post (and can't wait for my margarita tonight), but I have to say that Mexican Independence Day is actually Sept. 16. Nonetheless, let the tequila flow and the chips and guac be endless! :)
