Black Diamond

27 Apr

It’s two-posts Friday!  Well, at least this Friday it is.

Fiesta is kicking off this weekend here in San Antonio and that means no one works.  Except me.  Literally, companies close so people can go to all the Fiesta events.  Except mine.  So since it’s super slow here at work, I’ll blog!  Lucky you guys!

What is Fiesta, you may ask?

“Fiesta San Antonio” (or simply “Fiesta”) is an annual spring festival held in San Antonio, Texas with origins dating to the late 19th century. The festival began as a single event to honor the memory of the battles of The Alamo and San Jacinto.  Fiesta is the city’s biggest festival, with an economic impact of $284 million for the Alamo City. More than three million people take part in Fiesta. They can choose from more than 100 events that take place all over the city and beyond.

Let’s just say, it gets wild.


Last weekend Billy and I went back to Chicago and we went to the Black Diamond Charity’s 2nd annual event that my mom is in charge of.  Last year, they raised around $8,000.  This year it was closer to $16,000.  My mom has done an amazing job and we hope it keeps doubling each year!

My favorite part of the night was the photo booth.  Let me show you a few gems from the night.

There are lots more, but I think 5 are enough!

It was so great to see everyone!
