In honor of Ty's 30th, we hosted a fiesta this past Saturday night at our house, complete with "music, margaritas and mustaches." If you know my husband, then you understand the inclusion of mustaches. He simply loves them! I think he must have watched too many Bert Reynold's movies as a kid. Specifically, "Smokey and the Bandit."
Picture above: I think this is what Ty dreams our life should be like. In reality, I probably wouldn't be smiling as pleasantly as Sally Field. But can you believe that once upon a time Bert Reynolds was actually good looking? And with a mustache? My husband dreams of the day's return when mustaches are more common place and viewed as "sexy."
Back to the party. We provided the keg, Vodka Freeze and frozen Hurricanes (Ty decided at the last minute he didn't really want margaritas), fajitas, taquitos, queso, salsa and a variety of other yummies, and our friend Sonny Rambin provided the live music. With the help of The Blanchers, I had some interesting mustache decorations scattered across the tables. We super-imposed mustaches on some of Ty's pictures (yes, there actually is an app for that!). These are my favorites:
I also found some stick-on mustaches for people to try on and have a good laugh. Which worked out wonderfully and resulted in much laughter and some fantastic photos:
