    1. I emailed you back as soon as you posted it. Did you get it? I filled it out via the email form and it said it sent. Then I did the online version.

      Yeah. I totally agree, haha. I would love for someone to make them for me though :]

  2. Cookies look amazing but too much work whereas the individual dips is something I could rustle up.Rx

    1. Agreed! I think if you just made the pinatas one color and then iced them fun stripes it may be easier.

    1. Yeah! I need to try those out some time. I got lazy and didn't end up making fun things for Cinco De Mayo :-/ I will just have to celebrate later for fun. I did get Mexican food on Friday and it was delish.

      Hope you had fun dancing the night away...and got some Mexican food! Thank you :]

  21. Waaa this all looks amazing! I didn't even realize it was Cinco De Mayo until the end of the day Saturday. I felt so silly. I was photographing the wedding and the food was all Mexican. That should have been my first hint :P
