Three – tres – Trios

I have been such a bad blogger lately.  I think it’s been a combination of hurting my back last weekend, having a few things I want to write about but being too emotional about them thus needing some time to really think about what I write before I write it, and planning Sophie’s third birthday.  Yes, Sophie Bean is turning 3 on the 30th but we’ll be celebrating fiesta style on Saturday.  I cannot believe three years have passed since we first met.  I’ll write more about that on her actual birthday I think.

For now I’m in crazy party preparation mode making list upon list to ensure we have all bases covered.  I tell you, party preparation is no fun.  Party hosting isn’t all that fun either because I always worry if there is enough food, if everyone is having fun, did I forget anything.  I do have to say that I have learned to relax a bit over the past couple of years and take the stance that if someone isn’t have fun well, that’s their problem not mine.  There is only so much I can do and the rest is out of my hands.

I decided to go with a Mexican theme as I’m always looking for an easy dinner entree that can possibly be prepared ahead of time.  This hopefully eliminates the need for me to be cooking while guests are here and clear minded enough to have to follow a recipe.  We’re going with the taco bar for dinner – hard and soft shell tacos,  lettuce, tomatoes, onion, cheese, lettuce, black olives, nopales, taco sauce, rice and re-fried black beans.  Yum-o as Rachel Ray would say.  Hopefully this will appease the heartiest of appetites and allow my fellow mothers to custom build tacos to every child’s delight.  If not well, there is always cake.

Of course there will be margaritas and I think Aunt Kayla is bringing some wine (sangria maybe?).  Oh, do you think we have enough beer:

Once we get past this weekend and the actual birthday and Halloween I’ll do my best to get up some of the posts that are in progress.  Until then I’ll do my best to share some party/Birthday/Halloween pics with y’all.

Adios!
