Cinco De Mayo, Birthdays, and A Crazy Weekend

{Happy Cinco De Mayo!}


Photobucket

We've got a busy weekend ahead of us. A quick Cinco De Mayo celebration tonight. Tomorrow is my birthday (woohoo!) and we'll be doing another quick celebration and then preparing for a LONG, BUSY weekend. David and I were asked by the San Dieguito Art Guild if we would volunteer our house for the annual Mother's Day Garden Tour. (Ironic since I'm NO gardener!) One of the artists is a family friend so we of course said yes. I'm a little nervous as we will have up to around 800 people coming through our house. Yikes. I'm beginning to wonder if this was a crazy idea. I'm thinking the answer is possibly yes. Wish me luck!

  2. Happy birthday to a Very Good Sport! I don't mind exposing our house on my blog but I have said no to a couple fundraisers...weirdly feel shy about it. Your Cinco de Mayo photo gave me a good laugh!

  3. Happy Birthday! Have fun with the tour. Sometimes all we see in our home is the unfinished things, or things we want to change. Other people see beautiful design. Your house is amazing, Have fun!
