-Dancing with some of my favorite girls last night! It was our recital for dance week at work (some past dance week posts + video are here and here), and I choreographed two pieces for the occasion: one for the fitness staff and the other was for another department (where Meg works!). I also performed in a bellydance, and while it’s not my forte, I loooooove the sparkly costumes 😉
-A new Mexican spot in town, called Calle Tepa and is under the same ownership as Guadalajara Grill. While the menu offerings are similar to G Grill, it offers a more casual street feel with fresh, homemade tortillas, tacos, rice, beans, a salsa and chip bar,and killer margaritas.

To experience the full effect, we ordered sopapillas for the table (a soft, fluffy bread drizzled with honey, sprinkled with powdered sugar and cinnamon)
Livi gave the horchata two guacamole-covered thumbs up.
While I love the variety of Mexican food in Tucson -ok, I love all the food in Tucson- it’s fun that there are so many different types: the more family-friendly spots we love (Blanco, La Parrrilla, Poco & Moms, and Guadalajara Grill), the street stops (like Guero Canelo) and the fancier date night spots (like Poca Cosa). Downtown and on the southwest side, we have a lot of incredible Mexican restaurants, but construction right now is atrocious so we’ve stayed away from the area — you try to leave and everything is blocked. Anyway, today we were downtown for the wedding rehearsal and had an amazing lunch at El Charro.

-Speaking of rehearsal, it was so beautiful. I got to see the venue for the wedding -I’ve never been before!- and everything is going to be absolutely dreamy.
Livi got to walk around and explore with her nanas while we went over the details for tomorrow.

With the bride:
Trevor gave a speech at lunch at the dinosaur tears were thisclose. I have no hope for tomorrow.
Hope you’re enjoying the weekend so far <3
