Dora from VPJLM fulfilled my wishes on being a Honorary Mexican! I was so happy when I woke up and seen her blog post "Right Here" That I phoned Mr. Coconut at work on his lunch break and told him the news. I then told him we had to celebrate, he didn't put up much of a fight... and told me he would take me to the Mexican restaurant I have been badgering him about non stop for the past while. *woohoo*
Here I am sitting at the table, I like the cute little "window" behind me.
They also had like 4 sombreros there... I was so jealous!
Our waitress brought us out free tortilla chips and salsa *mmmm* (There was more.. but we were half way through munching them when I remembered to take a pic.) *lol*
I ordered what they call the Taco Loco!! It was SOOO good. The half with the cheese on top had ground beef under it. The other side had bean on it. Once I was ready to eat I mixed it all together added my favorite thing (SALSA) and ate till I could eat no longer. "I was not able to finish it... it was quite big."
Mr. ordered beef nachos. He is sort of picky with sauces and wanted to eat something he KNEW he would like.
He also ordered a beef enchilada with a bean sauce.
They had Spanish music playing and the inside was decorated real cute, bright & fun.
I was tempted to tell them of my Honorary citizenship... but I worried they might kick my a$$!! *LOL*
I also received a gift from the one and ONLY Nelly . And look what treasures she sent to me from Australia to Canada!!
A Lobster mitt, A wooden lobster a Australia t shirt & a exquisite sugar bowl. Now the Sugar bowl did have a partner. It came with a little jug for cream. But SADLY it arrived in lots of pieces. I was sad at first... but like I told Nelly. It will give me something to search for. I will Scour (E-bay) (Etsy) & (Thrift stores) until I find it's mate.
Look how gorgeous the design is! I didn't have a slightest clue this set even existed. I love it.
Thank you very much Nelly for the gifts.
I love them lots!
You know just what will put a smile on my face!
