I’m not much of a drinker, but I do fall into the: this-birthday/holiday/celebration/end of finals-calls-for-a-DRINK category.
So when I took my final final on Saturday afternoon, I announced on the way out the door that I wanted Mexican food and tequila–two things Stew hears me say so rarely, I’m sure he was just thrilled to partake in the adventure.
My foodservice final was a breeze and I came home to find that Christmas came early at our house. We were planning to skip a tree since we’ll be at my parents’ house for the actual holiday, but Stew could tell I was just a wee bit miserable every time I said (sounding just a bit like Eeyore), “We don’t need one.”
An artist’s rendering of me saying we don’t need a Christmas tree:
So Stew went to Michael’s while I was at my test and got a baby tree, which he decorated with a lone pine-scented car freshener. Perfect.
I got a Livewell 360 bag!
I love it so much.
We also did cute little stocking stuffers and the cats got a vegetarian cat treat mix that I suppose I’ll be baking for them sometime this week. It was a delightful little holiday.
So now that our Christmas is over, we can focus on important things… like:
We had dinner at Loco Lime, which feels kind of like your standard Mexican joint (with the cheap prices and tacky decor to match), but the menu is waaaaay better. I asked for a sangria but the waiter got confused and brought a beerita (a margarita made with a beer). It was awesome. The beer cuts the nauseating sweetness of a standard margarita.
It was awesome, but I just couldn’t eat it all. That’ll have to wait until next time I finish a semester of full-time school, full-time work, a graduate associateship… and blog maintenance. Whew. I’m not ready for January.
