I had big Cinco de Mayo themed plans for today but unfortunately they fell through. It was a good day regardless, just not themed. <– I love a good theme, I sort of can’t believe I didn’t rush a sorority in college
Friday was good in a “day-off” sort of way. Thursday night was ridiculous; I woke up a little bit before 4am and never went back to sleep. I tossed and turned, got up to pee, got up to get a drink; nothing worked. Which is how I ended up eating blondies and watching “Private Practice” at 6am. I knew I would be cranky and unproductive so instead of trying to fight it I spent my day eating Indian food, watching dramatic tv, starting the latest Kathy Reichs book, and going to see “The Avengers.” Sidenote – “Avengers” was great, I am thrilled that I got to see two Joss Whedon pieces in the same month!
I spent this morning finishing up Flash and Bones in bed (loved it!). My mood threatened another day off but I knew I needed to get my butt in gear and face the world. I set out on errands and ultimately finished most of next week’s to-do’s as well! I was out later than expected and ended up grabbing lunch at Moe’s.
A Moo Moo Mr. Cow (kids’ burrito) with rice, black beans, grilled veggies, corn salsa, and pickled jalapeños.
I didn’t eat 90% of my chips and queso but they were nice to have after particularly spicy bites of burrito.
I had a blondie when I got home.
Adam came home from his shift at the hospital this afternoon with his black dress shoes completely spent so we headed off to the outlet mall. It was crazy and crowded but we rewarded ourselves for our efforts with Ben and Jerry’s.
I got a small cup of Schweddy Balls and Coffee Coffee Buzz Buzz Buzz.
During our travels I also had these Jalapeño Cheddar Combos.
Our evening plans included a surprise party for our friend Ethan.
The event was held at Torro, a local tapas place. They brought us bread with oil and vinegar upon arrival.
And Adam and I split the Tempura Shrimp – “skewers with napa salad, miso dressing, and sweet Korean chili dipping sauce.”
This dish was great! I ate two with sauce, plus all of the cabbage.
Of course there was cake.
I had half of that small piece, I’m in more of a savory than sweet mood.
We’ve had tapas before, so we were aware that one plate wouldn’t be enough for two people but there was an issue and we never got our 2nd plate. No big deal though, the boys all came back here for an impromptu poker game so I’m cuddling up with some chips and dip.
Did you drink any margaritas today?
