Hi! Oh my gosh, what a crazy fun weekend! If you caught my tweet this weekend, you saw just what I was up to.
A Weekend I Will Never Forget

Yes, that is me!! I can’t believe I went off-roading and shooting at a gun range. I will have a complete post about it this week but let me tell you, it was like nothing I’ve ever done!
Later in the evening, I took part in a much more tame activity. I met my friend Adrielle for dinner and drinks at Agave.
The décor is one of my favorite things about this Mexican restaurant.
Both of us had margaritas on the mind.
We went with the tonala margarita, made with Herradura El Jimador, strawberries, Patrón Citrónge and fresh lime juice. Deeelicious!
The server quickly brought over chips and dip.
I really enjoyed the green salsa. I really should have limited the chips a bit more since they were just alright.
One of my favorite parts about going to dinner with girlfriends is that we all love to share. We decided to split one appetizer and one entrée.
To start, we shared the Shrimp Ceviche.
Mexican white shrimp with fresh lime, cucumber, cilantro, jalapeños and avocado
We were on the fence with an entrée so we went with the taco sampler which included our choice of 3 different tacos.
grilled-spiced tilapia with poblano pepper slaw, salsa fresca and fresh lime
Crispy Chicken Tinga Tacos
shredded smoked chicken with caramelized onion, cotija cheese, spicy tomato sauce and romaine lettuce
Potato and Portabella Mushroom Tacos
yukon gold potatoes, stewed with chipotle peppers, caramelized onions, spicy tomato sauce and queso fresco
Unfortunately, I wasn’t the biggest fan of the tilapia taco. It was my first time trying tilapia so I think I should give it another go. But, the best part was that I had fabulous company and conversation.
And on Sunday…
Since swanky boyfriend and I were busy most the weekend, we took the advantage of our time Sunday to enjoy a “date day” with lunch and a movie.
We decided on I Love Burgers since it was close to the theater and newly opened.
It worked out even better cause they had a burger and movie special. Score!
While waiting for our order, a brief phone call from my sister ensued an impromptu photo shoot from the boy.
We were thinking it was more of a sit down restaurant but ordering at the cashier and seat yourself service worked out just fine.
I went with the dante burger.
Ground angus, blue cheese, caramelized onion, and roasted garlic aioli
The burger was juicy and the flavors of the onions and blue cheese went so well together. I don’t order burgers all that often and it totally hit the spot.
I have to say although the burger was good, the sweet potato fries were amazing. They were sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar..enough said.
With our bellies full, we headed over to the movie theater. Although I was hoping for Magic Mike, we decided on the boy’s pick, Ted. Can’t wait to see Magic Mike with my sister on the 4th though. Anyone else??
Tony really liked the movie. Although there were a few really funny parts, overall I thought it was just ok. Bridesmaids is still the front runner in best comedies if you ask me.
I had such a great weekend!! Fortunately for me, I am off until Thursday so I plan on getting in some good workouts along with a bit of relaxing.
Thanks for reading!
Have you seen Ted or Magic Mike? What summer movie are you most excited to see?
