Simple ways to celebrate: Cinco de Mayo


You gotta love how American's come up with at least a few holiday's (aka excuses to celebrate) every month. This we we have Cinco de Mayo and Mother's Day in one week:D
My dad is Hispanic, so I feel in some way its legitimate to celebrate if you are at all Latina, right?  Regardless, who doesn't love a reason to have a margarita! Here are a few easy ways to celebrate and show your festiveness! Will you be celebrating?! 


P.S. Last day for votes for IHOD over at the Circle of Moms Top 25 Stylish Mama Bloggers! You can vote again if you have already, and you can vote from all your devices:) Thanks so much for your support!

  23. No such thing as Cinco De Mayo in the Netherlands! It's actually Liberation Day today (the Dutch equivalence of our 4th of July)

    Have a margarita for me, now that you can enjoy one!!! ;-)

    Hugs,

  36. that drink is some kinda swanky imbibe, looks d-vine! i think now that i've seen it there's no going back from celebrating it somehow, someway : )

    i missed last voting day by that much! (think i watched Get Smart lately, well you'd be right!) boo me. but i did vote a couple other times, hope to hear the good word about results soon. xo ♥
