Happy Cinco De Mayo!


Cinco De Mayo commemorates the Mexican army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of  Puebla on May 5, 1862


While Cinco de Mayo has limited significance nationwide in Mexico, the date is observed in the United States (voluntarily) and other locations around the world as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride.

I was trying to sound like Dwight Schrute from The Office in case you were wondering...

I love Mexican food.

Wouldn't it be fun to have a Cinco De Mayo party like this someday?

This one is obviously a wedding, but still...

Allie and I are off to visit my sister and her husband tonight and have a mini party ourselves.  Go enter to win the Felt Eyeglasses Case if you haven't already (winner will be announced Friday) And, come back Saturday for another GIVEAWAY!

I love this post. As I was reading it I was putting a lot of emphasis on FACT like Dwight would. I was wondering if you were doing it on purpose. Then of course I got a good giggle because you were. LOVE the office!

Thanks for the smile!

I would love to have a Cinco e Mayo party like that! My niece was supposed to be born today, so I was excited that we could throw her a Mexican Feista every year, but I think she probably won't come until tomorrow! But now I can celebrate!
