Just Dance…

Hey Loves! I am sooooooo sorry for being MIA! I have had a busy couple of days and just didn't find the time to post.

This past weekend was Hailey’s Dance Recital and let me apologize in advance for the pictures overload. They had 3 shows and I went to all of them so I have about 500 pictures! But don’t worry, I wont make you look at ALL of them! lol

Here are a "few"…

On Sunday night I went out with a friend and he took me to the Grand Cafe in Astoria…I fell in love with the ambience of this place; low lighting, great music, and outdoor seating…..peeeerfect!
I ordered the Veggie Panini with a side of fries…I would have liked this if it didn’t have so many spices…you guys know how I feel about Cilantro, Oregano, etc….me no likey! Thank God it had some Avocado in there to save the day =)

My friend ordered the Spinach Crepe and I was a little of jealous of his plate lol

Ayer I went to 5 Burros with mi familia to celebrate Hailey’s Shows..I started off with a Piña Colada
And had the Shrimp Fajita Dish…

This was actually my only meal for the day…after we ate we went shopping and my mom slipped on water at Target and had to be taken to the hospital! Thankfully she is home now =)
