Here’s everything tagged


A couple pictures of a bakery we stopped in at. Conor and the girls are really enjoying all the fresh baked goods that are cheap! 

We went to a very yummy restaurant for lunch with our friends, Valerie and Clay. It's one of their favorite places and after eating there, it's one of my favorites too! The food was really fresh and well prepared. I had carrot soup, followed by chicken breast with veggies and rice. The restaurant is one of the cutest I've been in. I really want to hang piñatas in every room of my house!

We went a a restaurant recommended by friends called, Casa Oaxaca. It was fancier than I anticipated! The one we went to is the "cafeteria" one and there's another, fancier one downtown. The food was delicious and we loved watching one of the men make salsa for us table side. I keep trying mole with the hopes that I'll love it, but I think it's an acquired taste that I have not acquired. Not sure if I should keep trying! By the end of this day, we were exhausted and so ready to put our feet up and sleep. Poor Maeve has been hauled every where without naps lately! She's a trooper, but we feel it in the mornings when she wakes up ticked off! 

PS: Holly bought the sweater she's wearing about and it suits her so perfectly! 

My Mom wants to see more pictures of what we're eating. This post is for you Momma! There's lots of good food here, so many combinations of beans, cheese and tortillas that are so satisfying. Here's one dish we tried recently - enfrijoladas. Crispy tortillas, smothered with black bean sauce and topped with cheese. So simple, so delicious! And the bonus ambience of our local mercado and the friends we've made there. The eating space is so tight that each time we've eaten at the spot, we've struck up conversation with the table beside us. I love Mexico! 

One day this past week, Maeve just wouldn't take a nap and she also wouldn't relax. I took her out to the mercado for a little date. First we stopped at the tortilla shop because Maeve had a craving and then we bought orange-pineapple juice and drank it together. I loved spending those 20 minutes with just Maeve! Poor Maeve, we try to get her down for a nap at a reasonable time each day, but our schedule has had so many variables! Lots of lates nights, late naps and missed naps!
