Sometimes you just need some cheap greasy Mexican food with your bestie.

Sara and I hadn't really hung out in over two months, which is pretty rare for us. We try to see each other at least once a week. We went to this small cheap mexican place around the corner and drank sangria while we commented on how old we were, even though we both felt so young. I don't think you're supposed to talk about getting older. It's like Fight Club. Don't talk about it. Because when you do, you just feel so much younger.

Hey! Just hopped on over from the Daybook! You and your knitting skills rock lady! There are so many things in that shop that I need! :)

Jas and I have been SEARCHING for great Mexican food around here (just moved to Cali)—but I'm afraid nothing will ever beat the scary little taco bus from our hometown. Sad I know, but kinda true.
But nothing says "catching up" like greasy Mexican food... good choice.

Hey girl! Just popped over from the Daybook, and let me say, I love your stuff!! That scarf Sydney is wearing is beautiful!! I love getting Meican food with the besties. About once a month or so, we have a girls night and we leave the kids and hubbies at home, and PIG OUT on some Mexican food. Its the greatest!!

Lise said...

Hey, I also just discovered your blog and shop on The Daybook. You and your sister have some amazing knitting skills...do you ever do tutorials on your blog?
I like to knit, but I'm much more of a scarves and dishcloths type.

I've been craving Mexican food lately. It's not a big thing in France, so I'm counting the days 'til I come home to the States for Christmas!

Mexi food + best girlfriends + drinks make for some of the BEST evenings. I used to live in LA, home of superb mexi food, but am now living in Amsterdam where they fall extremely short.

This post makes me miss gf's from home and our fav mexi spot. Enjoy it!!!

Alicia Marie said...

Cute blog!

Alexandria said...

I got directed ova here from the Daybook and not only do I love your knit goods, but you're pretty dang adorable!

Anyway, Mexican: I have a (notso) secret love for Mexican food. Actually, I went to Texas last year and my friends and I ate at the same Mexican restaurant three times over the course of four days. I. Love. Mexican.

Job and Rachael said...

I agree. My bestie (husband) and I frequent Mexican joints as he is from Mexico :) With him in tow I am assured we go somewhere yummy and "legit" :)
LOVE your knit pieces, they are gorg.

Rachel and Danny said...

Cheap Mexican food is the best. So yum.

Amanda said...

greasey mexican food is THE best, yes!!!!!

mal blair said...

sent over here from daybook! let me first say, you are SO talented. i wish i could knit, 'specially as amazing as you!:]

anyways, greasy mexican - one word: delic.. okay, maybe two words: freaking delicious! probably not the healthiest, but i'd choose it any day.. & for my best friend to be there with me, even better.

Betsy W. said...

This is pretty much my life. There is a really good mexican restaurant in our town so whenever I come home from college 3 hours away me and my bff always get together and eat there. Who doesn't love endless chips and salsa. And we always talk about how fast time goes and how even at 20 it's easy to feel old looking at how ppl who are younger than us are getting older. I always quote Kenny Chesney's song "There goes my life". haha.
Love your knitting!

Je pense said...

My bestie and I love food, especially when it's yummy and cheap. So cheap mexican that tastes great? We are so there.

hannah said...

Classic. Greasy Mexican Food is the best. :)

edwina702 said...

Greasey mexican food is a nice splurge with your bestie when comfort is needed and words aren't enough to pull through. I'm loving the scaves- I'm a new fan. #1 in eggplant especially.

Natalie said...

Yummy! I love sangrias! :) cheap mexican food is typically really good! :) I love spending time with friends :)

Brooke said...

Jealous. In Canada there is no Mexican food, Cheap or NOT!

Amy said...

I came over from the Daybook as well! Who doesn't love greasy mexican food with your best friend! I go to a little place where I live for huge $3 burritos. Yum! I love everything in your shop!

Catie Cap said...

There is honestly nothing like some cheap and greasy food (Mexican or any other kind) with your best friend. I'm not sure what it is, but there's something about it that just brings out the best memories and laughter!

Just popped over from the Daybook--what amazing talent you have! And I love your blog!

Alaynah Boyd said...

Just stopped over from daybook - boy am I envious of your knitting skills! I always wanted to be able to knit, and your work is beautiful!

My girlfriends and I all went out for cheap mexican food the other night to celebrate a birthday. The atmosphere for girl bonding can't be beat!

Amanda @ Heart Tree Home said...

Visiting from Daybook!

Such great knitting you do!

I firmly believe that Mexican food is the best genre of food. We just happen to have moved to a house within 1 mile of hubby's favorite Mexican restaurant... I promise it was not planned!

becky said...

yum!

Saidah said...

hahahaha. My uni was across the street from a cheap mexican food place. I used to eat cheap mexican food with... well... everyone...

Sarah said...

Hey! I just saw your cowl on The Daybook, and girl, I'm so jealous of your knitting skills! The cowl is awesome!

P.S. Greasy Mexican food is the only way to get Mexican food, just sayin'.

Marissa said...

I love the wooden bowls that all greasy Mexican food places have for the chips. :) Deeelicious!

Sarah L. said...

Surprisingly, even though I live in Texas, my BFF and I usually meet up for steaks (not as surprising since we live in Texas) as opposed to Mexican food. But, few things are better than margaritas and chips & salsa with best friends... except steak.

Sarah said...

Hey, I'm here from The Daybook and I love your knitting! Mexican food with friends is awesome, especially when you're sharing a pile of chips and guacamole.

The Kilhans said...

There is something about being with your best friend and indulging in chips, salsa and beans! We havE a hole in the wall in las Vegas where a small Mexican man plays the guitar and sings, love it! By the way your store has become my new favorite spot for gifts! You are very talented! Keep up the I inspiration!

CodyG said...

I love cheap mexican food. The greasier the better!! My best friend/husband figure and I go there for every birthday. It has now become a tradition. And...sadly...maybe my favorite one....

Marla said...

I would love to taste some Mexican food. I think its delicious :)

Martha anne said...

Mexican food sounds so good right now! NOw I'm hungry for some mmmm sounds like a fun night

Teresa said...

Mexican food brings anyone together....cheap, festive, margaritas...could resolve war, I think. :)

misshannie said...

I just found your blog from Sydney's The Daybook and it is fabulous! So glad you were able to see your bestie for a meal. Talking about getting older definitely should not be done! You're only as old as you feel right?! ;)

Much love, Hannie

Blake and La-Shana Francom said...

I think as long as you are with your bestie and get some good girl time in doesn't matter how greasy the food is....that's until you have stomach cramps later from it! =)

Charlotte said...

Cheap greasy Mexican food always tastes better with a side of sweet conversation with a dear friend! Well, and maybe a margarita :)

I am glad you guys had fun! Catching up with friends is the best!

Laura C. said...

I love mexican food! And so does my bestie! I can totally relate...sometimes you just need it.

I found your blog from the daybook and totally think your blog is adorable! I think it's so cool you knit. I've been wanting to learn to knit..and sew buttttt as it's finals week I haven't taken it up quite yet haha! But you really inspire me to begin learning! Your stuff is so cute!

Camille said...

Haha! I love cheap Mexican food! I go through these times where that's all I'm craving...and if you get between me and the chips and salsa you better watch out!

Huchette Crew said...

Gotta say I am a little jealous you get to go eat Mexican with your bestie. I just moved from Alabama where my bestie lives to Oregon and have yet to find a yummy mexican place. I also love love your knitting skills.

Amanda said...

Visiting from the Daybook! Really, Who doesn't love Mexican food?

Steffane said...

I'll be heading to the Lou (that'd be St. Louis) this weekend. I think I may be dragging my bestie to an old cheap mexican place we used to go to. I have moved away and we haven't been in years....so this post reminded me of just how much fun sharing salsa and a margarita can be!
thanks.
plus, I am a new reader/follower...love the knitting and the blog.

Kelly said...

I LOVE greasy Mexican food. There's nothing like yummy food, your best friend, and a margarita or two! :)
