T-Town Vacay Part Dos

Hey guys! Hope you’re having a wonderful Saturday 😀

The theme of this trip so far has been food baby. I’ve been eating so much delicious food!!! *Sigh* I love it here!

Last night we dined at the incredible La Parrilla Suiza. We’ve been eating there since I was a youngin’ and the familia knows a lot of people that work at the restaurant. (Last La Parrilla experience was here).

I decided to start the night out right with a Bloody Mary:


(Do you see the asparagus in the background?!? Hahaha, more to follow on that!)

It was just what el doctor ordered 😉

The pilot and I, being goofballs as usual:


I was pretty much ravenous, so I snacked on salsa AND chips (usually I just eat the salsa and leave a chip pile) and got two green corn tamales with no cheese, and some frijoles with no cheese:



I really need to learn how to stop wasting food:


After I was stuffed to the gills, us girls went to see Julie and Julia while the boys watched G.I. Joe. Our movie was FANTASTIC while theirs was not so good. Sorry boys 😉

This morning, I woke up bright and early for a spa appointment and grabbed some fruit as we left the hotel:


After that, we met up with everyone at The Good Egg –which I refer to as the Very Delicious Egg– for bfast. (Last time we had Good Egg: here!)

I ordered the veggie omelet with no cheese or sour cream, egg whites only, cooked in spray instead of oil (with a smile on my face… servers are always nicer about interesting orders if you smile at them):


And a double garden salad instead of the potatoes and english muffin, no cheese, balsamic on the side:


It was pure bfast perfection 😀

I even had something I haven’t had in over two months: COFFEE!! I still haven’t caught up from our crazy flight here (even though I’ve gotten enough sleep, I still feel weird) and that caffeine jolt made me feel human again.

After bfast, we went to one of my favorite shopping spots:


The pilot found a comfy chair to lounge in:


And I found a bottle of wine that’s juuust my size…


I’m about to take a little nappy so I can hang tonight, meeting up with some friends at Bizzle, going to daddoo’s for dinner, and then OUT. Shenanigans will ensue….

Have a great day <3

    Look like ur having a TON of fun! I have been on a HUGE egg kick, except I eat mine with cream cheese :S

  2. Ada on August 8, 2009 at 4:11 pm

    It looks like you guys are having such a blast! I'm glad you enjoyed Julie and Julia, I can't wait to see it!!!

  3. VeggieGirl on August 8, 2009 at 4:15 pm

    Haha I always love the faces that you and The Pilot make 😀

  4. ellegetsfit on August 8, 2009 at 4:26 pm

    I can't believe they actually made your eggs with spray! – I've never asked for that before. Usually when I ask for no oil or butter they just ignore me :/ I'll definitely try that next time!

  5. Mrs. LC on August 8, 2009 at 4:33 pm

    Love it all!! I adored Julie & Julia (my hubs and his friend thought G.I.Joe had bad acting? "Just terrible! Awful!" were their outtakes).

    What was with the asparagus in the background??

  6. roseyrebecca on August 8, 2009 at 4:57 pm

    I love making ridiculously specific orders at restaurants and seeing the server's reaction. Most of the time it's annoyed. lol

  7. Chloe (Naturally Frugal) on August 8, 2009 at 5:37 pm

    My boyfriend said GI Joe was the worst movie he has ever seen. The worst. I'm so glad I didn't go with him!

  8. Amanda (Panda) on August 8, 2009 at 5:38 pm

    Looks like you're having a blast so far!!

    What a great idea to take a nap before a late night, I never think to do that, then I fall asleep at 10:00 like an old lady!!

  9. Peanut Butter Swirl on August 8, 2009 at 5:50 pm

    sounds like a fun night out with the pilot 😀 totally jealous you got to see julie & julia

  10. seesaraheat on August 8, 2009 at 5:51 pm

    Yay, I love World Market too, something we actually have here in KY!

    Looks like you are having a great time, I love reading your trip posts the most, haha. Enjoy!

  11. Mandy on August 8, 2009 at 6:05 pm

    I'm so glad to hear you liked the movie! I saw a review in the paper that wasn't so great… but what do the critiques know anyway? 🙂

    Enjoy the rest of your trip!!!

  12. Jocelyn on August 8, 2009 at 6:41 pm

    wow that wine bottle is huggge!! I'd be afraid if I asked for all those things in restaurants around here they would prolly spit in my food or something to that affect lol..bad.

  13. Erica on August 8, 2009 at 7:01 pm

    Oh gosh I lurve frijoles!!! What a delicious din din. Glad Julie and Julia was good- I cannot wait to see it. Enjoy the rest of your trip

  14. Whitney@whitsgettingfit on August 8, 2009 at 8:56 pm

    I am in love with that wine bottle. I want to go to World Market and bring one home with me. Just for my personal use.

  15. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on August 8, 2009 at 9:25 pm

    Pilot shops like the perfect husband: waiting patiently in the chair! Glad you had a java jolt and felt human again…I totally know that feeling. Enjoy your Sat. night!

  16. Leianna on August 8, 2009 at 9:46 pm

    I miss World Market, they closed all the stores here in MN!

  17. heartswholefoods on August 8, 2009 at 10:04 pm

    I've never gotten tamales before, and yours looks freaking amazing!!!

  18. Pam (Highway to Health) on August 8, 2009 at 10:05 pm

    That wine bottle is awesome! We had one in college. I wish I could find it again!

  19. eatingbender on August 9, 2009 at 12:48 am

    "And I found a bottle of wine that’s juuust my size…"

    I <3 you :o) I want to buy one of those gigantic bottles next time we are both in AZ! You and the Pilot are a lot like me and Bobby in terms of the goofiness. Life is so much more fun that way, no?

    I really want to see Julie and Julia – so glad you liked it! Have a great time in T-Town! I saw Mara today and she told me that you're coming back through Chi…I hope it works this time around – text me if you're going to have some layover time!

  20. Jennifer @ His N' Her Health on August 9, 2009 at 1:18 am

    I always create my own menu at the Good Egg. they are always so nice about it. I always start off "are you ready for this!" then I create me menu haha.

  21. Emily Eats on August 9, 2009 at 2:57 am

    Sounds like a good time with good eats! You guys are so cute together too 🙂

  22. Menden @ Skinny Menny on August 9, 2009 at 8:20 am

  24. CaSaundraLeigh on August 9, 2009 at 9:23 am

    Looks like your having a super fun time–friends, food, and fam; you got it all 🙂

  25. Lovely Lacey on August 9, 2009 at 10:54 am

    I have never thought about asking them to make my eggs with spray and not oil.I will try it next time im out for breakfast.

  26. K from ksgoodeats on August 9, 2009 at 11:36 am

    HAHA! Love the vino picture! Perfect size, indeed 😀

    Glad you guys are having a great time in Tuscon!

  27. Jenna on August 9, 2009 at 12:07 pm

    i hope Julie & Julia was good! How could the boys possibly not have like GI Joe…with CHANNING TATUM?? haha.


  28. Heather McD (Heather Eats Almond Butter) on August 9, 2009 at 12:29 pm

    So glad you're having such a wonderful time…I knew there would be a breakfast at The Good Egg somewhere in your T-Town advenutres.

    La Parrilla Suiza looks so good – chips included of course. 🙂

    I'm dying to see Julie and Julia, but I don't think I'm going to be able to talk Christian Dior into that one!

    Enjoy the rest of your trip. Always love seeing pictures of you and the Pilot. They never fail to make me smile.

  29. Laura W on August 9, 2009 at 1:08 pm

    It seems like the coffee was much-needed! I'm glad that you liked Julie & Julia… I'm going to see it today and I anticipate that I'll come home and feel the need to cook. 🙂

  30. HangryPants on August 9, 2009 at 4:46 pm

    All of that mexican food looks so deicious and fresh! I love it.

    Have fun in Az.

  31. britt on August 10, 2009 at 11:23 am

    yumm! your dinner looks absolutely delicious!

    my husband and i both enjoyed julie and julia as well. i'm so glad we chose that over g.i. joe after seeing all of the comments.

  32. Katie on August 10, 2009 at 11:53 am

    Didn't you love Julie and Julia?? My husband was way bored but I've sat through enough of his stupid movies that he definitely owed me. Ha ha!
