Happy Cinco de Mayo! I am a little sad that it fell on a Monday this year. I’ll be working all day and most the night tonight. But, I’m hopeful to fit a margarita in somewhere.

I’m currently loving this printable by the Lovely Lauren if A Fabulous Fete! I saw it on her Instagram a month or so ago and fell in love. I thought it was the perfect reminder! She was kind enough to make a printable out of her work and sent it to me just in time for today! I’ve already posted it in front of my computer at work.

If you just want a little taste of Mexico this Cinco De Mayo, please try “The Best Tecate Ever”. My favorite Mexican food restaurant serves something very similar to this tasty concoction.
First, frost up a glass in the freezer– it needs to be VERY frosted. Second, use half a lime to rim the glasses and squeeze the rest of the juice into the glass. Just drop the half into the glass. Next, fill the frosted mug with Tecate and drink it in!
