With the gorgeous summer weather we are having, I think being out is the new in. Don’t you think?
The flowers are in full bloom in our front yard and I just can’t help but spend as much time outside before the summer ends.
I had a wonderful weekend, it was mostly spent outdoors.
On Saturday, I had a date to meet-up with other bloggers and readers for the first ever Orange County Fitbloggin meet-up. That’s me in bright yellow!
We met up at the local fro-yo spot Yogurtland. It was fun to see old friends and meet new friends.
A special thank you to Monica for organizing the meet-up and for sharing her pictures.
Later in the evening, we met up with friends for dinner at El Torito restaurant. I’ve had intense craving for Mexican food since we got back from our honeymoon.
I started off with a new drink (new to me), and tried their Cucumber Cooler. I love that it was made with agave nectar.
Every single time, I eat way too much of the unlimited salsa and chips and end up not finishing my dinner.
Our whole table ordered the 3 course Meximeal deal.
My first course was tortilla soup. I don’t normally order soup in restaurants because I find it too salty for my taste, but this was just right and I loved it. Veggies > tortilla, I was happy to find more veggies in my bowl that tortilla strips.
I then moved on to my 2nd course. Mini quesadillas served with beans and sweet corn cake.
I ate one piece, shared another one with Chris and took home the rest of the plate. I recognize I was full and was just eating because I was socializing at the same time., but I wasn’t really enjoying the food anymore.
Their sweet corn cake is delicious. I wish the servings were bigger. It has chunky corns in it, which makes the best texture for me. It’s a little sticky and sweet. I savored this little drop of cake and took small bites to make it last.
Everyone ordered the same dessert as our 3rd course. The menu says it’s deep fried ice cream, but it is more like ice cream served with deep fried strips on the sides.
I took one bite and didn’t love it so I gave the rest to Chris.
Both our sweet tooth had been activated during our honeymoon (drinking fruit shakes everyday will do that to you) and we are still loving sweets after our return.
We did housework on Sunday and played at Disneyland once it cooled off.
We spotted celebrities at Disneyland this weekend too. We saw John Stamos outside The Little Mermaid ride. Hi Uncle Jesse!
I believe the gal he was with was Renee Zellweger?!? I can’t confirm because it was hard to see with her hat, but I took to twitter and found others who also spotted the both of them the same time we were there.
Hope you had a fun and cool weekend.
