happy friday

we somehow managed to throw a real fine cinco de mayo party for ourselves last night, despite only having a couple of hours to spare and the plumber over fixing the garbage disposal.

we pinataed, and silly stringed, and ate good spicy foods...we confettied the yard and danced and played a couple rounds of snap.
i'm not sure any of it was very authentically mexican, but it was a celebration nonetheless.
happy happy weekend, friends!
and a very blessed mother's day to all you mamas. 
my sisters and i are taking our sweet gal out for lunch and shopping this afternoon. i've been looking forward to it all the week long!

and speaking of mamas...
