lobster tacos and people watching




robert and i have a little game we like to play called "it's a day that ends in y, wanna get mexican food?"

it's quite a fun game, really.

we found ourselves deep in the city on saturday night. with a sleepy pup at home and nowhere to be for hours. we sat in deep booths and ate lobster tacos, lapping up a long supper. then we got coffee and sat outside and people watched. i used to think the airport was the best place to do this. but really, anywhere with a bench and a close proximity to wal-mart is a sure bet as well.

there's something about mexican restaurants that makes me never want to leave. i can't tell if its the spunky decor, with the sombreros on the walls and the vibrant tiled floors, or the divinely decadent food. the guacamole is the deciding factor for me. i once loved a mexican restaurant until i was served a bowl of entirely creamy, totally smooth guacamole. no thank you.

we ended the night driving through back roads all the way home, sinking into the couch to catch up on E! news before bed.

a man who loves salsa and lets me indulge in celebrity gossip? did i make a good choice or what?

Yeah I have to say you definitely did! And people watching IN Wal-Mart is hilarious as well. haha

Mmmm.... guacamole. It is one of my favorite things. I could eat a whole bowl of it with just a spoon. That's sad about the time you were bamboozled with smooth guacamole though- the chunks are the best part!

I'm glad you had a nice weekend, my dear!

My boyfriend doesn't like mexican food and it makes me SO sad. I'm trying to change his ways haha. And people watching? That's one of my favorite things to do. And Wal Mart is definitely one of the best places for it!

Mexican food is delicious! Even better is this place we have by school which is dirt cheap but I'm a fan of the chain resturants too. Even better , E! news

Totally. :)

And I'm loving your game. Mexican food is the best! (I'm actually eating a Mexican-infused lunch right now.)

Jennifer said...

We love to go get some mexican food too! I like the whole feel of the restaurants. It's always relaxing to me. Oh, and I'm glad we're not the only ones who love to people watch. Hehe. Love it!

I love talking pop culture...and any man that lets that be talked about it is fantastic. You've got a keeper. ;)

You are right, there is definitely something so comforting about Mexican restaurants. Visit me in SLC, and I will take you to Red Iguana - SO GOOD!

You are up on my blog tomorrow! Eeep! : )

I always love the servers at our local Mexican restaurant, they are very friendly and always smiling.

People watching can be so much fun, I used to do it all the time at GCT or when I'm in a traffic jam. Today I saw an older lady jammin' down to her CD having a blast. She made me smile :)

Have a great tuesday, darling. ♥ Bibi

I live VERY close to the Mexican border (and am half Mexican), so I'm always wary of trying Mexican food when I am away from home. Those tacos look delish, though - can you believe I've never had lobster??

Brandi {not your average ordinary} said...

You made a very good choice -- both with your guy and those amazing lobster tacos. My aunt was telling me yesterday that she and my uncle are planning a trip to Massachusetts just to get some good lobster tacos. Figures.
