Saturday night was finally the night of our Fiesta!
Stephen and I spent all of Friday grocery shopping, cooking,  and cleaning. Time passed by so quickly that before I knew it, it was 5pm on Saturday, and people were showing up. For once, everyone that I invited came to our party. 12 people +1 baby+ 1 dog crammed into a teeny little apartment makes for some seriously fun times!

My parents decided to send over some fiesta decorations (since we had cut that out of our budget). Included was a set of fake moustaches that were hilarious! Everyone took turns donning a sombrero and moustache and posing for pictures.
Angela Fiesta We ate a ridiculous amount of yummy food: cheesy nachos, homemade salsa, beef and chicken tacos, chocolate cupcakes and Smitten Kitchen’s Cappuccino Fudge Cheesecake. I’ve had that recipe bookmarked since the end of November, knowing that I wanted it to be my birthday cake. When my sister Jessica heard that I was going to bake my own birthday cake, she offered to make it for me, and did an AMAZING job. Seriously yummy.

We had a jalapeno pepper shaped piñata, which was all fine and dandy except for the fact that we live in a tiny apartment. And we own an expensive TV and computer that could be damaged quite easily, not to mention that we don’t have anywhere to hang a piñata! Don’t worry, my dad stepped up to the plate and held the piñata at the end of a broomstick, and Stephen was first up to take a whack. I stood in the safety of the kitchen, which of course ended up being in the line of fire. Stephen took a huge whack, and all of the candy came flying at my face, prompting a very comical scream from me. Luckily, it was all caught on camera. Once I get my hands on this video, I’m going to have to post it here!
