Yes, yes it is! Sometimes you just cannot help yourself but to really go head over heels into a delicious meal…. which is exactly what we did this past weekend when we went to Momocho. You may remember my very first experience at Momocho which was fabulous! The margarita sampler combined with the guacamole sampler if heavenly.
Rich, Kara, Dana, Tommy, Heather, Tim, and myself all headed out for a night on the town.. which started and ended at Momocho because we all stuffed ourselves and just wanted to go to bed! I had the delicious drink sampler and I have to say sometimes just an old fashion original margarita does it for me. I certainly enjoyed all of the flavors I got which included a pretty delicious pomegranate one but the flavors start to take over the tequila a little bit and while I am not a huge fan of shots of tequila I don’t mind the taste in a deliciously tasty drink.
And I know that this looks like Rich and I are on a colored-coordinating date but we weren’t. We are just that cool and know each other that well to know that you always wear bright blue to Momocho on a Friday evening.
So after we crashed at Kara and Dana’s, the bestest and I got up and headed to a bridal shower for her soon to be sister in law Danielle. It was such a BEAUTIFUL shower and Danielle’s maid of honor Rachel just did a fabulous job organizing the event! They had all sorts of tasty treats and Kara’s chicken roll-up recipe that she got off of Pinterest was a big hit.
I cut up lemons and put them in pitchers with water. My treat was not nearly as appreciated.
In any case Josh and Danielle (below) looked fabulous- so excited for their wedding. If there were 2 people made for each other, that’s them! Which I know from first hand experience because Josh asked me to go to his prom with him and then ended up staring at beautiful Danielle all night and ignoring me.
Good thing he is practically my brother or I would have been really offended.
After the shower and a quick 10 minute power nap I tried to hide from Kara as she did the dishes (hehe sneaky) we got dressed and headed to Zocalo, a Mexican restaurant (I didn’t get enough on Friday right?) and I had this fabulous quesadilla filled with coat cheese, spinach, and chicken. Seriously, this thing was good. I still can’t figure out why they charged me $5 to add the chicken do it but hey whatever, it was a good meal!
Kara liked her quesadilla but she liked her margarita even more (yes more margs)
We went to some bars, dance a lot in very high heels, and eventually had Dana pick us up downtown before we went to bed incredibly too late for this old lady. Speaking on old lady this very young man (who probably had a fake idea) said to Kara and I as we walked by “damn you girls still got it” well thank you toddler boy. I’m glad that at the ripe age of 26 I “still got it”. I didn’t know I was running the risk of losing it quite yet.
Guess he told me.
It was a really great weekend. Tested my high-maintenance sleeping habits for sure considering Sunday was filled with family fun at a 90th birthday party, a high school graduation party, and doing an accounting mid-term for grad school. All of that also meant that I had to miss my soccer game which was really needed considering all the crap I ate that weekend! Oh well, give em’ hell next week right?
