Texas!




This Friday night is the Annual Texas Independence Day Party at Casa de Alexander. March 2nd is Texas Independence Day. Ever since we moved to Kansas, we have needed a reason to remember and celebrate the mother-land.
So the TX party is a fun way to bring people (TXan and non-TXan alike) together for some Shiner beer, some Tex-Mex food, and this year.... A Mariachi Band.

I can't wait!
I got a local restaurant to donate chips/salsa/queso to the party. And we are putting together a stellar music playlist of distinctly Texan artists.

Should be GREAT fun!

Shannon- we started when we moved to Kansas. The first year, we invited the 5 texans we knew over for a small dinner. Last year we had about 25-30. And this year - we were busting at the seams - LIKE WHOA!
We ended up having 99 people! Well that includes about 25+ children and a 4-person mariachi band (who were fabulous btw).
Next year we may have to change the venue. HAHA
