Tex-Mex

Dec 2, 2010


Last Saturday, my dad and I held a Thanksgiving/ early christmas party for some of our friends. Our theme was Tex-Mex and it was fun cooking new dishes to serve to a party.

A floral arrangement that was used in the party. Love all those yellow blooms.

It was my first time to cook Tacos and I had no recipe at all butI tried duplicating the ones from Pancake house. The guests liked these tee hee :)

Made a batch of wicked margaritas, to carry on the Tex-Mex theme.

And meet the newest member of my shoe closet, it was my birthday gift to myself. I was lucky enough to snag these Vivienne Westwood for Melissa sandals. They had only one piece left in my size at Greenbelt and said that it was reserved for a VIP. But they released it to me since they probably saw the devastated look in my face. The balls on top of the shoe looked like they belong in the christmas tree! Too cute!

Wearing a one shouldered jumpsuit for the party. I've been dressing so much casually these days and jumpsuits are an easy way to get dressed in the morning.

Have a great day everyone! 23 days till christmas!

Those blue balls on your shoe are festive! I really like the way those colorful lights turned out in these photos! TexMex food is one of my favorites. A lot of their food is really easy to make.
