lazy summer fridays

At my new job we get summer Friday half days. Given that there are only 2 more Fridays this summer I ran out of the office at 2 PM and joined Thom for an early happy hour drink (or 4).

just be glad i didn't take a picture of the guys behind us

This Saturday's Red Bull vs Galaxy game was a rowdy one. My hair still smells a bit like beer. And you see that tiny blue dot down there with white sneakers? Yup - that's David Beckham. Hot even from 2,000 feet away.

tung remains our supplier of all things hard-to-find and maybe illegal... kinda like a lychee - the rambutan

thom didn't want to miss out

on the monkey action...

and just a reminder of my monkey face...

I think it's pretty clear why we're going to be spending the rest of our life together.

a little heaven in san miguel de allende

Nirvana was one of our favorite restaurants in town. We ate there three times!

a stroll through the park

San Miguel de Allende has a beautiful park. This park also happens to have the flatest land around - perfect for a jog if one were so inclined. (We were not.)

a festival in the town square

the door to our future...

More details on the wedding events to come...

dogs on the roof

so bad

But when there's 2 for 1 martinis - we don't care. Harry's is the cheesiest place in town. No really. They have a sign at the bar that reads "if you don't like the food, drink more wine."

So we did.

taking a break

aren't my toes so much cuter?

serious margaritas

After meeting with our musicians (get ready to dance, people) we decided it was time for a drink.

no lack of color in san miguel de allende

bring walking shoes

The streets aren't exactly even either.

the streets are narrow

The sidewalks even more so. We did a lot of sucking in.

the breakfast spread with delicious homemade granola

Our short stopover in Mexico City was over and it was time to head off to San Miguel de Allende. Time to plan a big party!

just getting started

A lovely tamarind martini to get us started our first night in Mexico...

The restaurant had shaggy green carpet which was like very soft grass.
