my mexican fiesta

i was on a high all weekend from such a great birthday!
it literally panned out exactly as i had wanted, so many thanks to my mom!

we got lots & lots of bbq from ten50, we had two margaritaville machines going, mixing margs with fresh squeezed lime juice and agave sweetener. we strung handmade decorations and wore sombrero hats. we even recreated this diy photobooth where we had some fun in front of the tripod that was set up. it was an amazing day lounging on blankets in the green grass under a sunny sky. seriously one to go down in the books for me! 

here are some photos from sunday, if you would like to see...
also, i will post pics from our photobooth soon!

getting all set up, our friend dandi came over to help & brought loads of mexican-inspired decor for us to use

 we brought peanut (back) and our friends katelin & philip brought their mini dachshund clare (front) for him to play with
 too windy for candles..but i didn't really feel like putting 29 individual candles on there anyway!
 opening gifts and cards;
thank you guys so much!!

dekel got me us a new nikon 5300 dslr, which we have been wanting needing for a while to replace our little digital camera that we felt was not satisfying our photography needs. so in love with it and i haven't even played with it yet!

 after the party, we hung out with our bestie molly and then went for pizza at her & her husband's pizza place, gapc, for some slices and beer
 basil & green olives
 after dinner we walked across the street to have a steel city pop, they are unique flavors of ice or cream-based popsicles and they are so yummy! i got strawberries & cream and mirelle got sweet tea

hope you enjoyed the post!
happy hump day!!
