• sloppily & impulsively throw a sit down fiesta for eight women together via email
  • have a budget of ten dollars
  • don’t leave yourself enough time to clean, decorate or cook
  • use dollar store shelf liners for table covering
  • make mexican paper flowers that more closely resemble cabbages
  • use whatever happens to be clean instead of proper margarita glasses
  • have the guest who was to bring garnishes and main course cancel due to illness
  • forget the fiesta salad in the fridge until after dessert


  • trust candlelight & tequila to overcome all the above
  • tell your true stories
  • laugh from the belly
  • listen from the heart
  • celebrate
