Fiesta! Fiesta!

This post is LONG over due!  It has been a crazy and exciting couple of weeks for me, and I have been terrible about turning on my oven or computer!  The reason I have been so overwhelmed is because I got a new job!  I started at The American Heart Association and love it so far!  I’m getting a hang of the schedule, and am getting caught up here.

Luckily I have lots of goodies to post!  And appropriately, several of the upcoming posts are for a fiesta I had recently.  If getting a job with your dream organization doesn’t give cause for a celebration, I don’t know what does!

 

My sister and brother-in-law gave me 3 section crock pot (a completely fantastic Christmas gift!) and I had been itching for months to use it.  It is perfect for a taco bar!  I made pork carnitas, chicken fajitas, and ground beef for the tacos, chips and fresh salsa and guacamole and cheesy Mexican rice.  And a pitcher of margaritas (ok, it was 2 pitchers!)

 

I found sombreros a the dollar store, perfect for decor and fun props!  I used a table clothe with peppers all over it and red and white silver ware.  My friend and I both made some colorful tissue paper pom poms to brighten up my place.
