I cannot believe I’m saying this, let alone writing this, but I turned 50 and my husband decided I needed to have a party.
He left the party decor up to me and helped me with the heavy lifting, along with my friends Steph and Susie.
My friend Steph is our resident artist so I put her talents to work. (I took this pic right before the N got a little squiggly thing above it!)
My husband found some hay bales on Craigslist and they even delivered. I simply covered them with Mexican blankets and they were perfect for seating.
The back yard.
I literally planned the party one week before the party date and pretty much sent the invitations out 10 days before the event. I’m pretty sure I was in denial.
We had a photo booth with all of the annoying “50” props.
Some party guests found the centerpieces perfect props for the photos! My friends are wild and crazy!
My husband arranged to have a food truck pull up into the back yard. They served the most delicious street tacos, beans, rice, quesadillas and burgers! I didn’t have to lift a finger!
If you live in the Phoenix area I highly recommend their food! I had over 100 people and there were no complaints, only compliments to the chef!

My Latina ladies were in attendance!
The photo prop, The Mona Lisa, was a big hit. Mona Lisa, my parent’s namesake for me! ha ha
I found evidence of my friend Sheila drinking milk from my precious Milk Glass. Apparently, nothing is off limits!
Most of my favorite people were in attendance and I’m so grateful for their friendship and Love!
