Party Girl attended the dual birthday party of Trish Gautreaux Trahan and Becky Myers Morvant. Family and friends gathered together at La Hacienda in Broussard to celebrate the birthdays of these two best buds with great Mexican food and, of course, plenty of margaritas and many shots of tequila. Good thing the party was held in the bar area, because while the girls gabbed and opened presents, the guys were glued to the sports games playing on the many televisions. Since Becky and Trish are both obsessed with UL baseball, the cake was a pink UL baseball hat, with a baseball, pom pons and season tickets. After everyone feasted on fajitas, quesadillas, and nachos (and of course, pink cake) the party moved to Frozen Sun and then Legends on Pinhook, where more friends and more fun awaited the birthday girls.
