This is a special Riot Girls post today because it’s Lori’s birthday!!

Lori and I are always up for a good par-tay, though in my opinion, we haven’t been able to celebrate near enough of our own birthdays together.  We’ve made up for it though, trust me.  Lori’s and my life mission is to have as much fun as possible.  We’ve been pretty successful.

Lori and I agreed when we talked this morning that we no longer acknowledge what age we are.  In fact, honestly, we often forget and have to do the math to remember how old we are when asked.  Not kidding.  Today, Lori asked me: ‘how old are we again?’  We also agreed that the last important birthday was when we turned 21.  That was momentous.

From Steve today - gorgeous!

Lori was able to go out with a lot of friends on her 21st, and she had a good time I’ve been told.  Of course, I wasn’t able to be there because it was right around finals time for me in MN.  Sad!

To top it off, Lori gets her own holiday – ¡Cinco de Mayo!  A double-excuse for fun!  And always a great party theme – fiesta!  I’ll have to have my friend Dot school me on the history of Cinco de Mayo since her hubby, FD, is from Mexico.  They’re my experts.  Dot – what’s the scoop? 

My 21st was a bit different – I was in small town, NE, with my dad before heading off to my senior year of college.  Dad and his friends took me out to the nicest restaurant in town and ordered me all the classic cocktails.  That was actually pretty cool.  I liked everything but the Manhattan.  To this day anything from the whiskey/scotch family are no-gos.  Blech.

The bottom line, Friends, is that you should forget your age.  But party it up!  In celebration, Lori and I are offering a giveaway!  Come back tomorrow for the entry details!

Hey Eth-
Cinco de Mayo is NOT Mexican Independence Day (which is celebrated Sept 15-16) as many people think. It is actually a celebration marking the day that Mexico defeated the invading French on May 5, 1862, in the city of Puebla. My Mexican hubby calls Cinco de Mayo a "gringo holiday" because in Mexico, though it is a national holiday, the city of Puebla is the only place that has a real celebration.
