mexican food + family = magical

Last night was so good for my soul. I had some of my favorite people over. Everyone brought a "dish" and we celebrated my grandpa's birthday. He's such a great guy and its awesome when we are able to all get together! Even better when Mexican food is involved... & oh my word you guys, my favorite chips in the world were on sale yesterday, so you know I and to snag a bag (or two).


We played around with my new Polaroid. It was a crack up hearing my little cousin tell my uncle "how cool these were!" and my uncles response? "Dude, you don't even know!", haha! It's so neat that Polaroids used to be the "main source" for taking photos. I think its cool that I'll have these little snapshots to keep forever.

Yes, my grandpa is wearing an "Air Jordan" shirt, and YES we didn't have real candles so we made him blow out a 3-wick candle juuuust in front of his cake ;) we keep it classy.

I challenge you this next month to spend a little extra time with those you love, especially your grandparents. I know I'm one of the lucky ones, my grandparents live within a few miles, but still. Making these plans is such a blast and spending extra time with family is something I'll never regret. I hope you guys have a fun filled weekend planned! Enjoy! ;)

  4. I can't deal with the three-wick candle in front of the cake. Perfect solution. I wish I could spend more time with my grandparents (they're in Wisconsin and Iowa), but I'll fit in an extra phone call next week to catch up a bit. Have a great weekend!

  7. That sounds like a cozy night! I also have a big love for Mexican food. It’s one of the most flavorful and nutritious cuisine in the world, and it’s absolutely a good option to feast on during gatherings, like the one you and your family had. Cheers!
