Wednesday was Tom's birthday and we had plans to go out to dinner to our favorite Mexican restaurant. We tend to gravitate towards little hole-in-the-wall family run places and happened upon this one last year when driving down towards Delaware. Seriously, the best guacamole I've ever tasted in my life! And the salsa bar... don't even get me started. Tom and I are both sort of salsa addicted so the place was pretty much perfect.

So... you can imagine our crushing disappointment when, after thinking about this guacamole all day long, only to arrive and find that the place had suddenly shut down! Argh. We were so hyped up on eating at this place, nothing else even sounded good. We took the extra time we ended up with to shoot a few photos for the blog. The absence of guacamole in my life is probably why I'm looking particularly dour in that first photo. I was not really a happy gal. All ended well as we called a friend who recommended another local Mexican joint. While not quite as good as our original destination, temporarily cured me of my salsa withdrawals.

I also want to take a moment to thank Naomi for including me in her RockStar Interviews series on her lovely blog!

Just stumbled by your blog and shop via the Rockstar Diaries and I just wanted to tell you how lovely it all is. Looking at your shop is dangerous! Too many cute clothes!

Your dress is just what I'm always looking for at the thrift store. I love little floral patterns.

All this talk about guacamole and salsa is making me needlessly hungry. :( I'm sorry to hear about your favorite place being shut down-- I hate that feeling of crushing disappointment! So does my stomach.

I'm really loving the little details of this outfit like the socks and the hat... though I guess the hat isn't such a little detail!

Very cute dress, I love it!

I love these photos. Especially the one against the yellow wall, and with the giant hat! I need to learn how to wear ankle socks with my outfits. They always looks great the way you style them.

I love these photos! Especially the one against the yellow background, and the giant hat. I need to try out ankle socks in place of tights. They always looks great the way you style them with your outfits.

Ohmygod, my boyfriend Alex and I are similarly addicted to chips and spicy salsas and I think we would probably die if we went to OUR favorite hole-in-the-wall mexican place and it was closed!! So sad, but I am glad the restaurant is still there, it made for some awesome commemorative pictures for the blog, huh?!
