If you don't want to read my ramblings, scroll down to the moral of the story.
When we moved to our new home in October, HeRoos and I were out walking BM and met another couple walking their baby boy (who is 3 months older than BM). They were also fairly new to the area. We swapped numbers and have since become good friends. When the weather was nicer, we (the ladies) would walk the kids during the day and play at the park.
Instead of exercising in this yucky weather, "J" and I are discovering ways to work on our food storage (a supply on the hips). We found a coupon for sushi and ventured out with the boys yesterday. The place was adorable in a cute area and the service was fantastic but the sushi was just so so.
I got another e-mail/coupon that happened to be for a Mexican restaurant that has fried ice cream (which we've been craving). So the boys took us out to lunch again today (aren't they kind to their mothers). Keep in mind that "J" and I are both new to the area so we depend heavily on the Garmin to guide us around.
The Garmin navigated us to a very sketchy looking building surrounded by old factories and as we drove up to the restaurant we looked at each other and debated if we should go in. I looked at the cars in the parking lot and didn't see any red flags, then we watched a couple people come out and they looked harmless so we decided to make good use out of that coupon.
The minute we walked in my reservations went away. Mexican music was playing and people were enjoying their food. The food was delicious! We left with full, happy stomachs and were happy to see our car still in the parking lot.
The moral of this story is: Don't Judge Food by the Building/Area
or you may miss out on a fabulous meal!
