Vacation Food

Due to Thanksgiving Dinner, we didn't eat out much but I had to get some good Mexican food while I was in Arizona, so we went to Mi Nidito last night. I get all my restaurant suggestions from Man v. Food so lucky for us they came to Tucson. We got to Mi Nidito knowing it wasn't in the nicest part of South Tucson but became very aware when armed security escorted us from the parking lot to the restaurant...
Man v. Food wasn't even the biggest thing to hit Mi Nidito. Mother effing Bill Clinton ya'll! And Hillary and a bunch of other random celebrities love this restaurant. We all got different dishes and shared and it was all delicious. I'm not going to say it was the best Mexican I've ever had, but it definitely hit the spot. Plus, eating with an armed Mexican next to you, always makes the food taste better :)

Thanksgiving Vacation Begins

I'm taking 2 weeks off for a Thanksgiving trip and to get in all the family time I can, before I move to Germany. I flew to Colorado so I could drive with my sister and her 3 kids down to Arizona. Before we left, Jackson had his friend Bday party and it was hilarious. Is it wrong to play Ke$ha, Lady GaGa and LMFAO songs for Hot Potato? Hahahaha. It was a great party.
The 13 hour drive went pretty smooth and the kids were great. We got to Corey's place, unloaded, rested for a few hours, then Corey and I drove to Phoenix to get my brother, sister-in-law and their daughter. We are just waiting for my brother-in-law and parents to get here to make a full house.
I am so thankful to have the best family and to be able to spend Thanksgiving with them this year!

Just waiting...

I have nothing too exciting going on while I wait to leave for Germany. I got to fly a new plane a few weeks ago. We landed at Richmond International, got lunch and came back. My friend Sarah came down for a night, we ate at an Afghan restaurant and it was amazing! We went to Old Town Alexandria and got hot chocolate, then to the National Harbor to a piano bar. I've been staying busy, but all I really want is to be living in my own place, with my husband, and all our things. I'm tired of living like I'm 19 again. I really liked it back then, but it's less exciting now.
I'm leaving for Arizona on Thursday for an awesome family Thanksgiving and I can not wait! I get back to DC on the 29th then fly to Germany on Dec 5th. I know it's close, but it feels like a ways away and I feel really anxious about it. The only thing that soothes me is shopping.
