Any excuse for a party is a great excuse, right? Well, how about a 28th Anniversary celebration for me and the Hubby? That was just the ticket this past Saturday night.
Welcoming us and our friends was this guy – you might know him as The World’s Most Interesting Man…..he knows us as regulars at El Azteca Mexican Restaurant.
Gathering the troops together to celebrate at El Azteca allowed us to kick back and relax – while Alfonso did all of the cooking! And he did not disappoint with his selection of goodies.
Starting with ceviche, and moving on to chicken with mole, we all dug in to enjoy the evening.
Fresh guacamole, chips & salsa, cheese dip….you know the drill…no counting calories until at least tomorrow….
Our dear friend, Rhonda, brought Carrot Cake cupcakes – freshly baked by her Mom, Linda. Here’s the story – Linda baked our wedding cake for us 28 years ago, and (yes) it was a carrot cake wedding cake! Tradition just has to be maintained, right? Especially when that is the Hubby’s favorite cake.
To keep the celebration going, we brought along a giant (is there any other kind?) Chocolate Cake from Costco, since three of our best buds had birthdays this past week. Terry, Jim, and David all got to don the festive hats and get embarrassed as the staff and friends sang “Happy Birthday” to them.
Since we were celebrating multiple events, the cake had to be appropriately titled, so it became the “Happy Birth-A-Versary” cake!
Until next year’s anniversary, Stay thirsty, My Friends…..
Happy anniversary – congratulations! Looks like a great party.
Thanks! It was a lot of fun – friends and Mexican food go well together…!
Happy belated Anniversary! It looks like a great party with lots of good food!
Thanks!! The perfect part was not having to cook a darn thing, and enjoying the party!
That looks like fun!
It truly was fun! Always a great way to visit with lots of friends.
