Valentine's Recap.

There's nothing like the joy that comes with a napping toddler!

Now I can finally sit and tell you all about our wonderful weekend. And, oh! Was it wonderful! The Husby had a Valentine's secret he'd been keeping for weeks, and on Saturday he informed me that we would be going to see Cirque Du Soleil! I was utterly surprised, and I don't think I would have ever guessed. It's one of those things I never really thought I'd be into, but now I am a believer! It was amazing, and I would recommend it to anyone!

J'adore scary clowns!

In addition to the wonderful entertainment, we also indulged in some amazing food!
Before the show we dined like royalty at the oh-so-chic,
Nuevo Laredo.

(OK...I'm being a little sarcastic about the chic part, it's actually very modest, crowded, low-ceilinged and hard to get into... but the food is bliss!) I had two life altering tacos; The Pollo Mole and The Carnitas. Andy got Barbacoa Pork and Mexican mashed potatoes. We sipped margaritas, and enjoyed some of the absolute best salsa I've ever tasted. Go there! (and take me with you when you do.)

After the show, we found ourselves wondering what to do next. We thought about going somewhere for desert, maybe drinks... But then opted for a midnight breakfast at R. Thomas instead.

I'm telling you, wine is fine... but breakfast is bestest! Scrambled eggs, nine-grain toast, and home fries,YUM! And I topped it all off by sipping on a huge cup of their Blue Moon yerba mate. This drink is absolutely the nectar of the gods; chamomile, lemongrass and peppermint teas, sweetened with maple, soy and rice milk and ginger. Um, I die.

And so, having been thoroughly entertained, satiated and with our tummies warm and full we journeyed back to our home sweet home and thence ended our lovely Valentine's night.
T'was loverly indeed!

My favorite things!!! Cirque is surprisingly awesome, I have to admit, and the mole at Nuevo Laredo is indeed 'holy'. R Thomas, too?! You are too cool to condescend to be my blogging buddy!
