Last weekend, we had a birthday celebration with family in this house in Taos, New Mexico. We started out early so as to spend a little time in Taos on our own.
The house was lovely. The owners had put up a Happy Birthday sign with blocks, which was a cute and sweet touch.
We had a pretty courtyard and huge views of the mountains on all sides:
The views were of lovely blue sky all around.
We visited LaLana Wools but it was often closed and when we went back the second day, it was closed again. So we ended up at The Yarn Shop which was in a terrific little courtyard — called the John Dunn Shops — off the main square.
This was our favorite shopping area … and Mr. Man is not a big shopper. He’s lovely about visiting yarn shops with me and this unique area had shop dogs who were friendly and loved to snuggle. So we enjoyed the heck out of it. We had lunch with margaritas of course.
We had the party on Saturday night after all the family had arrived. We cooked beer can chicken (sorry, everyone was laughing at the concept and taking pictures, and I forgot to get pictures from here on). There were dozens of cupcakes from MyaBella cupcakes:
We got in the hot tub every night to enjoy the sky covered in stars (hard to get a picture of those). The sunsets were simply gorgeous!
And this is for Mr. Man who says I take pictures of my food but I only blog pictures of alcohol:
… he’s probably right. This is a danish from Michael’s restaurant where we had breakfast there EVERY SINGLE DAY the food was so good. Great omelets with green chili. So yummy!
