Eyyyyy Poncho!

Was I the only looser cool girl who thought ponchos were like the thing, the  COOLEST garment circa 1992??

Well, ready or not, they’ve made a comeback and you’ll never guess how….

Cinco de Cuatro

A few years back we had a Cinco de Mayo party, that’s Spanish for Cinco de May.  Anywho, I think Cinco de Mayo fell on the wrong partying day and so we ended up celebrating on Cuatro de Mayo and somehow in the planning stages people became confused and started calling it the Cinco de Cuatro party.  It stuck.  We had a blast.

The following items are staples for a successful Cinco de Cuatro party:

  1. Amazon, Burro Pinata
  2. Amazon, Fiesta Fun Party Maracas
  3. Amazon, Guac Off
  4. Amazon, Chili Pepper Lights
  5. Amazon, Sombrero
  6. Amols, Mexican Guitar
  7. Direct From Mexico, Blue Rimmed Margarita Glass
  8. Direct From Mexico, Blue Rimmed Hand Blown Glass Pitcher

Hacienda de los Santos, Alamos, Mexico

As promised, I’m featuring another favorite Mexican vacation.  Hacienda de los Santos is where my husband and I went for our honeymoon.  If you want to go somewhere that is chill and you need a little pampering…this is the place!  Beautiful grounds, gorgeous hotel. The little town is SUPER CLEAN, like the cleanest Mexican town I’ve ever seen in my life.

Hacienda de los Santos has a cantina on site that holds more types of tequila than you can count, has the best huevos rancheros and guacamole you’ll ever have and the nicest owners you’ll ever meet.  There is a movie theater on the grounds that you can pick what you want to watch and  have them bring you guac and beer or margs!  There is a spa, fabulous mariachis at dinner, and if you catch it at the right time–cooking classes (we did, FTW!)

Each room is named after a saint and ours was Santa Lucia.  Fabulous.  Trust me.  Go. Order the guac.

La Virgen de Guadalupe (that means THE Virgen de Guadalupe)

That’s my husband’s favorite joke…”Do you know what La Cocina means?…THE Cocina”…followed by much laughter.  Hey, his joke not mine.  So I couldn’t resist when writing up this post.

If you live in Texas, the Virgin of Guadalupe is probably a sight you’ve seen many times.  I’m not Catholic but I love the colors and stars and everything about the image.  My aunt has these boots and they are AMAZING and I may or may not need to steal them from her closet.
