Derby de Mayo


I love a good party; especially when it can combine the Kentucky Derby AND Cinco de Mayo. Does it get any better than mint juleps & margaritas?!

Over the past weekend, Hubs and I hosted our first party post-baby and I was pleasantly surprised with how easily it went off.  Granted, we had to switch plans at the last minute thanks to thunderstorms, but even with Mother Nature raining on my parade (and carefully though-out plans) the party was a huge success.  And, I even won a little cash on I'll Have Another.  (How could I resist placing a bet on a horse with a name like that?!

What's that on my head might you ask? Why, that my friends, is a Cinco de Mayo fascinator!!! Perfect for a Derby and Cinco de Mayo celebration in one!
