It really is the strangest thing. I NEVER used to eat Mexican. All I liked were nachos & taco's & who needs to go to a Mexican joint for that? Not me. Yeh, well, it's rare that we go a weekend without going out for Mexican these days. It may be getting a tad ridiculous. Saturday, I was meeting Allison & Joni at Casa Maria for a little farewell lunch for Joni. Her & her family are moving to New Orleans.
Of course there has to be guac!!!
The queso was really good too!!! Somehow I managed to forget to take a pic of the nachos. Probably because I was too busy stuffing my face with them. They were soooo good. I'm not sure if you know it but nachos at a Mexican restaurant are some of the worst things you can eat. They're like 1000 calories. Seriously. Then the fact that I might have been putting queso on top of mine. Luckily, Joni & I split an order! Sometime yesterday afternoon it occurred to me that they didn't have jalapenos. I can't believe I didn't realize this. They were supposed to. I love jalapenos. I'm the person that carried on for years about the fact that Ole Miss didn't have peppers for the nachos. They didn't have Dr. Pepper either but that's a whole different story. Suffice it to say, Oxford, MS was never high on my list of places to visit.
Me, Joni & Allison. I haven't perfected the self portrait.
My hair is flat because the wind was blowing 250 mph. Slight exaggeration but it was blowing A LOT. I should have worn a hat. It would've saved a lot of time.

Sunday I went to a birthday party. It was for our Godchild Lane. He's 7 today. Happy Birthday Lane!!
This picture cracked me up because Lane was actually reading the card & the other kids too.
Dean & I keep the kiddos outfitted in the latest LSU stuff! You can't tell but this jersey is the pretty LSU purple. BTW, the birthday cake was delish!!!



  1. LOVE mexican food - i'm having a HUGE craving right now *augh* - and now i want cake too!

  2. MMM... my favorite at a mexican restaurant are fajitas... and now I want some. HA!

    What a perfect birthday present just in time for baseball season!

  3. I wish I could have come and ate with y'all!
    Thanks again for Lane's gift! We all loved it!

  4. I could live off of Mexican alone.

  5. Years ago I didn't like Mexican food either but those days are LONG GONE! Looks like you girls had a wonderful time!

  6. Wow! I did not know nachos are that high in calories! I should stuff my mom with them so she can gain some weight.I have never been to Oxford...Christine

  7. Love Mexican food, but we have adopted the low-carb way of eating, and Mexican food does not fit. Kiddos are cute -- you guys are great Godparents!

  8. You look so pretty in those pics!!

    Stop with the Mexican food pics!!!!

    I miss Tex-Mex. We have a few Mexican places here, but they are nothing like Tex-Mex from home. That guac looks amazing!
