Well. I’m officially married!!!! All those months and months of planning paid off this past weekend and Thomas and I got hitched!!! I’m waiting for my photos to come back from my photographer, but here are a few my friends and family and brilliant photographer snapped during the event!
It was magical to say the least. The whole day, from start to finish. Getting ready with my girlfriends was so much fun and relaxing. We got all dolled up in hair and make up and I made lunch for everyone! Then we started on some pics and then it was time to swap vows and say I do! It was everything I wanted it to be and more!
And now we are just unpacking from the wedding, packing up for our honeymoon, and relaxing for a few days. We take off for Mexico on Sunday for a week in the sun with endless margaritas, guacamole and tacos. I’m going to be in heaven.
So now, let’s talk dinner. I mean, it’s back to school time right, and while I don’t have kids, I love to simplicity of a fun, easy and quick homemade dinner. Which is where these Tacos in a cup come in.
They are awesome. And fun. And who doesn’t love eating something out of a mason jar. Okay, so I guess they are technically called tacos in a jar, but that just didn’t have the same ring to it. So I’m sticking to tacos in a cup.
It’s basically all my favorite things layered into a mason jar and then topped with guacamole. And then you get to dig in with a fork or spoon and mix it all around and then eat it!! So you kinda get to play with you food too. I’m into in. And you should be too!
