Farewell Fiesta

Hi friends! How are you? Hope you had a great day <3

My work schedule has made twice-a-day blogging rough on Thursdays, so it was a very nice surprise to see the Pilot take my place earlier today 🙂 Hope you enjoyed the post as much as I did. He’s a keeper <3

We’re doing really well on our “let’s stop going out to eat every night challenge”


Ok, actually we’re doing terribly. Haha.

Remember when I used to cook every night for us? Delicious healthy meals? I really need to bring that back- it’s been terrible lately. Since the Pilot got groceries, I really have no excuse from now on… 😉

Anyway, back to our Mexican feast.


We went out to Guadalajara Grill with Kyle and Meg. They’re leaving for Cali tomorrow for an entire week, so we had a little farewell dinner and pre-birthday celebration- Meg’s bday is next week.

Guadalajara has the best salsa- a bold statement, but 100% true. The salsa is made fresh at your table according to spiciness preference.


I had about a thousand chips + salsa.

The Pilot had a 32-oz margarita the size of his noggin.


For my meal, I rolled with the guaco-tacos (guacamole, lettuce, tomato on corn tortillas), no cheese and veggies instead of rice.


(Ate half since I was full from chips and saved the rest for tomorrow’s lunch)

The server REALLY impressed me when I asked for no cheese.

He was like “no cheese, or completely dairy free?”, I paused for a second [shocked] and was like “dairy free, please.” He said, “well our beans have a small amount of vegetable shortening, so would you like something else instead?” I told him the vegetable shortening was no big deal, but he double-checked no cheese on the beans and my order came out exactly as I asked. It was mind-blowing, for realz.

It was a lovely dinner with lovely friends. I can’t believe they’ll be gone for an entire week!!

Well it’s get-ready-for-bed time over here 🙂 I teach early tomorrow and then am off the rest of the day 🙂

Enjoy your night and I’ll see ya in the am <3



Something to talk about: Anyone else out there going out to eat way more than they like to? What’s your plan to change it?? For me, I’m bringing meal planning back- that’s usually good encouragement for me to make something at home.

Mark your calendars: Summer Shape Up 2011 starts a week from Monday, June 6! Videos, new workouts, meal plan, the whole she-bang. If there’s anything special you’d like to see, please let me know.

*I’ll also have some very exciting news to share with you that week, too. Big thangs poppin’, my friends 🙂

    Hmmm I have a guess as to what the big news is!!! But I’ll keep it to myself in case I spoil it for others!

    That meal looks delish! I love when waiters are really attentive!

    I *think* I have a feeling as to what the big news is and I sooo hope I’m right!! I’ve been assuming this for awhile now! Can’t wait to hear the exciting news!

    What an awesome server! It’s so nice when they go out of their way to help accomodate our dietary needs. I’ve had my share of both really good and really bad servers when it comes to my nut allergies!

    Wow! That server was amazing and the salsa made at your table sounds like the best thing ever!
