in which I am disappointed by romanticized stuffed jalapenos

My long hair was starting to get out of control. If I didn't braid it, I shed everywhere. And even when I did braid it, while I was braiding it I shed ridiculous amounts on my bathroom floor. Too much hair! So, my mom made an appointment for me to get a trim in the middle of her color. She picked me up from R's apartment and off we went! Hair has been chopped. (though you shan't see it in these photos)

(note: it is difficult to take outfit photos and talk on the phone with one's mum at the same time)

Then we went to lunch at The Texican Cafe, a restaurant that I loved growing up. They have these amazing stuffed jalapenos as an appetizer that were just DIVINE. Well, at lunch, I have to admit that I was pretty underwhelmed by them. Had I romanticized the jalapenos? I mean, they were fine. But were they worth the (I suspect) hundreds and hundreds of calories? Or the $6? No. No, they were not. And my tacos were unexceptional, particularly after a weekend full of Amaya's Taco Village in NE Austin. Sigh. What a waste. I've been eating out an obscene amount upon my arrival in town, as I always do when I visit for a short amount of time. But I always justify it by saying that I will hit the gym when I get back to Iowa and by making each meal worth it. Well, this lunch was not worth it. I am disappointed and frustrated.

Tomorrow: I am going to get up when R does for work, and I am going to go jogging if it's the last thing I do!



Those moss green tights are great with soft brown accents! Cute look!
