Fiesta de Mayo!

Hola mi amigos!  With today being Cinco de Mayo, we decided to host a little fiesta with some friends.  It was a great excuse to share our new home with some friends and enjoy lots of food and games.  Of course I had to make a few decorations to make our home a little more fiesta ready

Remember those fun orange sodas I mentioned the other day?  They made a perfect pair with all of the Mexican food!
The appetizers and dinner menu included fresh homemade pico de gallo, guacamole, spanish rice, chimichangas, chicken enchiladas and veggies with ranch dip. 
It was so much fun to have a homemade pinata, thanks to my girlfriend Kim, that we were able to take out back after dinner and smash up!
Despite our backyard being not quite party ready, we were able to utilize the great big tree to hang our pinata.
After a competitive game of Catch Phrase (boys verses girls!), we enjoyed the chocolate chipotle brownies I made...sweet with a little spicy kick (of course paired with ice cream)!
So glad we threw this little fiesta with our friends!  Laughing, eating and whacking a pinata...what a great way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo!
