it’s official: SPRING IS HERE!

i don’t care what the rest of the world says, in my book spring is officially here. why? because last night the girls and i took our first ride of 2010 in the convertible.

oh, oh yes.  the (somewhat chilly) wind blowing in our hair, the radio blaring, and the sun on our faces…it’s been a long winter, and it felt great to put that behind us.

and thankfully the weather fully cooperated with us-monday’s clouds and sprinkles were nowhere to be seen and we had sun and a cloudless blue sky over heads.

yeah, it was pretty wonderful.

and what made it even more wonderful was where we were going-to our favorite local mexican cantina, amigos. it’s fast become my favorite local restaurant (shocking, i know, since basically we have one other good restaurant in town, two pizza joints,a chinese food place, mcdonald’s, and a subway to choose from). but it may also have something to do with this:

oh, margaritas. how i’ve missed you. and seltzer, don’t get too comfy, because you will be retired pretty early on this summer.

and then, of course, there’s also the guacamole to consider. we’re suckers for good guacamole, and darn it, amigos has good guacamole.

it was pretty much the perfect way to kick off what is sure to be an exciting summer.

we talked intensely about subjects we knew very little about,

we goofed around and ate large portions of mexican food,

and two of us enjoyed sipping margaritas through little tiny red straws.

the other one still managed to keep herself busy.

so welcome back, warm weather. we look forward to a long and happy relationship with you in the coming months.

long and happy!



  1. Clever editing, ms. kate…. I totally can not figure out WHO IS DRINKING THE SELZER. Well played! Congratulations to someone!

    That guac is looking mighty delish. As are the margaritas.

  2. okay, since you left that comment there has been some debate as to whether or not you were joking or couldn’t tell-my husband basically called me mean because i “left you hanging”! oh, the subtle nuances of the internet. anyway, in case you don’t know, i didn’t mean to intentionally keep it a secret-it’s heather!

  3. Yay Heather! Thanks for passing along the good news!

    So, I was jokingly serious. That totally clears it up, yes?

    The pics of mac’s convertible TOTALLY make me reminisce (SP?) of my cabriolet days… drool.
