Birthday Fiesta

Monday, May 5, 2014

Hello All!

My 30th Birthday couldn't just end with a night at the W Hotel on Friday and a Kentuky Derby Party on Saturday, I had to host a Birthday Fiesta on Sunday too!

I invited all my of my family for an afternoon of fun, food, and feasting.

My Mexican Spread included watermelon punch, Jarritos sodas, 7 layer bean dip (in martini glasses), Mexican shrimp cocktail, "Frijoles a la Charra" (Mexican bean soup), rice, fajitas, and of course cake!

My sisters and mom came over early to help me get everything ready

I am still overjoyed that my grandpa came and was able to play accordion for me, then we played together like we used to in my visits to Mexico. 

A birthday party in my family is never complete until we dance, which was so much fun having my grandpa play! We are sooooo Mexican!

My sis and cousin 

Turns out my dad and Paisley became good friends while he was over :)

I feel so lucky and blessed to have such a wonderful and fun family, I wish it could be my birthday every day!

Thanks for stopping by!

Lee Park Junior Conservancy Derby Party

Hello Everyone!

Saturday May 3rd, I was able to attend the 6th Annual Lee Park Junior Conservancy Derby Party at Arlington Hall.

I have always wanted to go to a derby party, give me big hats and nice weather anytime!

I attended the event with my best friend Michelle who ended up wearing the perfect outfit to match mine

Hot Pink and White ladies :)

Everyone watching the races inside the hall, check out that lady's bird hat!

The fabulous Ashley Mahon was asked to sing "At Last" she sounded amazing!

I wore Amanda Uprichard and it was such a hit, I got a lot of compliments. My hat was from Sam Moon, the Mr. helped me choose it.

The photo booth was my fav! 

Great fun!

Next up, my Birthday Fiesta!

30th Birthday

Hey Y'all!

I turned 30 last Friday, and let me tell you it was quite the day!

It all started with an early morning of getting packed for a night stay at the W Hotel.

It was followed by an hour and a half traffic jam and an emotional meltdown on my way to meet my mom for lunch. I was so upset, but as soon as I entered our lunch destination, 

The Zodiac Room at Neiman Marcus, 
I came to my senses and realized how lucky I was to get to spend my birthday lunch with my mom who currently lives in Mexico. 

We were introduced by their famous popovers and strawberry butter

My sister Esmeralda also joined us, 

The food was delish and I was feeling so much better.

My mom and I headed to the W to check in and then headed to the pool area to go take some pictures with the Dallas skyline

How pretty is my mom?!

The afternoon proceeded us with some infiniti pool time with my bestie Michelle

The wind was blowing like crazy, but it was nice to get some sun

We headed to Nick and Sam's Grill for dinner, which was blah

But after, we hung out at the W lounge and it was such a blast!

My sisters and Michelle and I had such a fun time dancing and celebrating my birthday and the Mavs win.

My other bestie Amy was there for a little while also!

The next morning we headed to Uptown and had lunch at Del Frisco's Grill where my little Frenchies joined us 

Wrigley had such a blast people watching, I can't believe how well behaved she was!

How funny is she, people watching?!

What a wonderful way to spend my Birthday!

Next up, the LPJC Derby Party :)
