Beeritas for Christmas


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.

It's Christmas!

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:

Wamp waaaamp

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!


Livewell 360 Core bag

I love it so much.

Stew got a Blu Ray player!

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.

I had veggie tacos

Stew had the veggiechanga

And table-side guacamole. Obviously.

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.

  1. Lucky you on the Core bag! :)

    That’s the exact Blu-Ray player I’m looking at getting Tristan for Christmas… Is it up and running yet? Work well?
    Costco has it on “sale” through the 19th, but I haven’t purchased it yet.
