Cinco de Mayo—or the fifth of May—commemorates the Mexican army's 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War (1861-1867). A relatively minor holiday in Mexico, in the United States Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage, particularly in areas with large Mexican-American populations.

I just like to use it as an excuse to drink Margaritas! Unfortunately, there will be no Margarita drinking for me today. I have to work and tonight, Leah has Honor's Night. Oh, well. My coworker, Laura, did bring in some yummy Mexican layered dip! YUMMY!!! And we'll be having tacos for supper.

Any of you celebrating?

Sombrero: Cherokee, NC. (I know, weird, right?)

Have a fabulous day, y'all! Someone drink a Margarita for me!!

Even Flo got into the spirit with us today!! (But she won't give me my hat back!)


  1. You look awesom!! Where the heck did you get that hat? hey, do Margheritas help you pass kidney stones? LOL

  2. Way to get into the spirit!!

  3. Happy Cinco de mayo from San Antonio!!! Where we do it big!! and NEVER need an excuse to drink Magaritas!!!
    In fact, when my daughter was looking for the best place to have her rehearsal dinner, she & her father went all along the Riverwalk and tasted magaritas...then picked the best place!
    yes, that is the criteria down here!

  4. Pam, I like your daughter!

    Lise, you're kidding about where I got that hat, aren't you?!

  5. woops, I forgot all about Cinco de Mayo yesterday. I had to go to two Mother's Day parties at my kids' elem. school. It was really sweet.
    Love the hat, looks cute on you.

  6. I am not a big fan of mayo so I don't celebrate the holiday.

    JUST KIDDING I LOVE MAYO. But I still don't celebrate it.

    Sorry! I am running on about 5 hours sleep!
    So glad you two are back blogging regularly again.

  7. i didn't have a margarita, but i did have a vicodin, does that count as celebrating cinco de mayo
    honestly after the vicodin the celebrating going on was in my dreams
    could never be a druggie and get away with it
