Doug and I’s 1st anniversary!

After the amazing wedding last year, Doug and I decided we would host a Cinco de Mayo party EVERY YEAR FROM NOW ON! This year we held our “2nd Annual” Cinco de Mayo party in some green space where we live.

The set up was intense…almost as intense as the wedding…:) We used a lot of the same decorations… (A special thanks to Bruce, Betsey, Sarah, Mom, Dad, Shawn, Lauren, Doug, and Kim for helping out!)

Even Ashley and Andrew came to help set up!

Finally the party started…

We visited with guests and around 8:30 we played the wedding video for anyone who wanted to see it. We all ate chicken and pulled pork tacos with all the fixings. It was delicious. Once everyone was sufficiently stuffed, we decided to go take pictures with the new cake…

Then we decided to cut our year old, defrosted cake!

Unwrapping it was the real issue…I made sure that thing did not even think about freezer burn when I packed it away…2013-05-04_19-50-25_DSCN04462013-05-04_19-48-18_DSCN04422013-05-04_19-49-05_DSCN0444

Then finally, we cut it!

and it was delicious! We were told we had to feed each other like we did at the wedding…so we did…

and Doug finally got is chance to smash it in my face….:) 2013-05-04_19-53-17_DSCN0453

Then we cut the new cake…and ate that…

…it was so good too!

We passed out cake to all (and ate it for the next two weeks). We saved the topper on the new cake, froze it and it is waiting to be unwrapped at our next Cinco de Mayo party!

When the party was over, Dad, Mom, Doug, Sarah, Amber, Bruce and I broke down the decor. Thank you all so much for helping! Here is some of the group…

As you might have noticed, we also had a photobooth at the party. You will have to wait until Monday to see the amazing pictures that came from it. :)

I leave you this…

Happy Weekend!

Love and Hugs, Lizzie
