Ocho de Mayo Fiesta

 photo MayMexican038_zps94afa6e7.jpg

Wednesday I had some friends over for a Mexican themed lunch, and we may have eaten a bit too much... I made beans and tortillas, and my awesome friends brought horchata, rum and coke, and margaritas. And a salted caramel torte! 

 We ate, drank, chatted, and the kitties got way too spoiled with petting. So exhausting being a kitty.

Solanah,
Have you watch the series Call the Midwife....either on Netflix or PBS...Set in England in the 50's. You would love the clothes, hair, shoes etc. And the lead girl looks soooo much like you. Check it out.
