our fiesta!




My day started out with a sweet hug from my son... and a whisper in my ear Happy Ocho de Mayo... what is Ocho de Mayo? He is funny... and oh, so sweet!

At the beach with Amy, my sister wandered down on a break from work and told me she had tried to get us a couple of margaritas from the bar for Oche de Mayo... but it was too busy... it was only noon, so that was okay.

I tried my hand at making tamales... my new favorite mexican food... and they were... delicious! Happy Ocho de Mayo to me!

We shared dinner with old friends and new friends... a dinner with tamales, enchiladas and fajitas (I definitely made too much food!), and lots of laughter and fun... oh, and a margarita or two!

I think this Ocho de Mayo thing just might catch on!

Too funny. I think Ocho De Mayo might be celebrating, too. :)

We have a lady in our neighborhood who goes door to door selling tamales. One of these day's I'm going to buy some.

You are too cute. Love that you made tomales....I could not tell you where to begin with those.

A coincidence...we made enchiladas last night...YUMMO. No margaritas though.

Ocho de Mayo...very cute! You needed Margartia Man...he would never be too busy to make a margarita for you!

It was Teacher Appreciation week at my school...between that, my birthday and Mother's Day I am full, fat and tired!
Happy WEekend!

I love tamales, but the ones here in Texas are very small. In CA they were much bigger. Are they big or small in Florida?

All that food looks sooooo good!
Have a wonderful weekend!!

Home made tamales sound great.
