Have I mentioned that I’m impulsive? Yeah, just a bit. Sunday morning I woke up and told myself, “It’s time to buy a DSLR.” Don’t get me wrong – I had been researching them for months, so I knew what I wanted.

To soak up the bubbly, I ordered two tacos. Excuse the shadows. I’m still learning how to work the
First was their special taco – pulled pork marinated in sriracha with blue cheese coleslaw. So fluffin’ delicious.
The other was a mahi mahi taco with guacamole, citrus slaw, and tropical salsa – very fresh and full of flavor.
After sevvveral bottles of champagne later, the boys wanted in on the glamour shots.
Then the camera went back to us. Ha.
