Party Recap: It’s Not Hou Turned 5!

Happy our birthday! Last month we celebrated being FIVE YEARS OLD! Seriously, that’s a child (as one party goer pointed out). If our blog were a human, she’d be a walking, talking KID.

Anyways, just wanted to say a quick thanks to everyone who made this possible! And, scroll through to see if you spy yourself in one of our recap photos!

Our venue

First of all, thanks so much to Tikila’s in the Heights for letting us take over your taco Tuesday and for extending that happy hour for us! $3 White Claw — what a game changer.

Our creative cookie partner

Butter and Love was the real MVP of the night. Thanks so much to Laura for her cookies for the party — she’s part artist part baker, honestly.

Our photographer

Emily of Emily5Photo (left) did such a great job documenting our party! Thank you thank you thank you!!

Accel Lifestyle

Accel Lifestyle, one of our fave brands here in town, came out and knocked off 25% for our party. That’s such a great deal for the American-made, sustainably-sourced, and anti-stink workout wear!!


I know some of y’all weren’t appreciative the next day, but it was so great to take some fireball shots with Dalida. Plus, they sponsored our photo booth, which was such a hit!
