Adventures in Everyday Entertaining
Today happens to be a celebration of birth… My birth! 🙂 Today I turn 35 years old. I have found that I love getting older. Some people long for their younger days. I look on those days and smile at how silly I was and then think in amazement how much I have grown as a person and how much more comfortable I am with myself. We should never yearn too much for the past, nor spend all of our time wishing for the future. Live in the present and appreciate all of the little things around you from day to day!
In addition to my birthday, this weekend also brings quite a few other celebrations and events!
It is the 139th Kentucky Derby! Wow, what a lot of tradition and history surrounding this event! And, of course, it is best –whether attending or not– to put on your best hat and sip on a Bourbon Mint Julep! Here are some other fun things to check out:
Need a hat? It might be too late for this year’s Derby…but get a head start for next year, or find that special hat for another fabulous occasion! Chimeric Millinery has very fun hats made by my friend Susannah.
And here are some fun Kentucky Derby Party Printables from Hostess with the Mostess to add a fun little touch to your viewing party this weekend! Printables
It is also Cinco de Mayo on Sunday! Here are some great food recipes, margaritas, and tablescapes to get you in the festive spirit! But first, check out this article by Adam at The Unorthodox Epicure that talks about the Distinction Between Mexican and Tex Mex Food, as well as providing a really tasty nachos recipe!
