margaritas and good company

It’s been one heck of a lazy Sunday over here. Woke up late, lounged on the couch while eating breakfast, studied in bed, napped and snacked. Sometimes you need a day like that!

This past week has been so much fun andĀ full of good company and lots of margaritas and drinks. Because I finished class last Thursday, I’ve had over a week until my final that I will be taking tomorrow morning. Then the family gets in and graduation is on Saturday. I can’t even believe it.

The photo above is of my margarita at the Katy Trail Ice House. My older brother Matt was in town visiting, and I wanted him to experience KTIH for himself. Not such a great experience–the service was slower than ever and the waitress disappeared for an entire hour after we had finished our drinks. My margarita was mediocre, and just a word of advice to all of you who want to try their $11 beeritas— the waitress even said it herself: “It’s not worth it”.

The first thing we did when Matthew flew in from LA was head straight to the Rangers game. I enjoyed a yard long margarita which probably contained 1.5 shots of tequila and a lot of artificial margarita mix. But it was a yard long margarita, and that’s what counts, right?

We both bought new Rangers gear–you can’t really see my shirt but I’m now a proud owner of a Rangers tshirt. It took me a while to get one, for no reason in particular.

The next night we went to Union Bear to have a beer or two. We tried several beers, and I ended up ordering a Sierra Nevada Summerfest. It was tasty and refreshing. I also loved that they had special Union Bear glasses they serve their beer in:

You can sort of see it in this photo, but we just loved sitting outside at the bar. I can’t wait to go back and try the food too.

The latest drinks we had were the margaritas at Mi Cocina with Ryan on Cinco de Mayo. I jumped at the chance to celebrate with a margarita. After snapping this photo, we both found tortilla chips in our drinks…and we weren’t eating chips. That was a bit terrifying, so we got new drinks.

Graduation is nearing and we’re ready to celebrate after our last finals tomorrow. Hope you all had a great weekend!

Bon Appetit,
