Reunited And It Feels So….Oh and 500th POST!

Hey my loves!!!!! I hope everyone is having a wonderful day! It is SUPER HUMID over here in the NYC…it feels like the inside of a dog’s mouth lol!
So last night I met up with my old friend and my sister for Din din at 5 Burros. Like I mentioned in my previous post, I was a little nervous about seeing her since it has been about 4 years since we have seen each other and we didn’t part in the best of terms. When she arrived at the restaurant, we gave each other a HUGE hug and all of my nerves melted away.
We started off with some Nachos and Guacamole…

I then ordered my first drink of the night…do I EVEN have to say what it was?
Gigi has been stalking  reading my blog and wanted to take a picture for it….I warned her that I would post this!
For my main course I ordered The Mexican Salad with grilled Lobster…

My sister and Gigi both ordered the 3 Taco Special and I ended up stealing some of my sister’s rice and beans lol
I then ordered another Piña Colada (thank God that I woke up at 4:30 and burned so many calories in the morning haha)
The dinner was great, not only because of the amazing food (5 burros never disappoints me) but because of the fabulous company! We had so much to catch up and honestly it felt like no time has passed by…we were still those 13 year old girls meeting for the first time in 8th grade and me asking her “Do you like Aerosmith?” (yup that was the first thing I ever said to her!)

My 15th Birthday…(I have no idea what is going on with my face here)
My sister’s 17th Birthday, The five of us were inseparable!

Last night…
I hope that we get to catch up some more…
This morning I decided to do some toning since I will be going to IntenSati this evening. I  started with the IntenSati warm-up (Missy, I got the song!!!!!) and then did “I want those Arms” and “I want those Abs”.
For Breakfast I had Oat Bran with Splenda and Cinnamon with Strawberries and Peanut Butter and my usual (iced) Cafe con Leche)
Have a great day loves!

**UPDATE! this is my 500th post!!!!!!!!!

  4. I cannot only have on pina colada at a time. They are way too delish!!

    Good idea about singing the OCD song.

  5. I love going out for Mexican. There's a really great place near my hometown that serves the best enchiladas for such a great price! Guac looks great in that pic!

  6. Catching up with old friends is the best! Dinner looks delicious - I crave mexican about 95% of the day, but this put me over the edge. Haha. Going to have some guac with lunch today :)

  7. I'm so glad you and Gigi have renewed your friendship! Love the old pics :)

    So...I may be traveling to New York for work in a few weeks! I would be doing some training in Somers, NY, which I guess is only about 45 minutes from the city. I would LOVE to meet up and go to 5 Burro!

    OMG, that grilled lobster looks amazing!

    I thought of you while I was working out today. I was watching FoodTV (of course) and Giada was having people over for lunch after a personal yoga session.

    They explained what Namaste meant and I instantly thought of you!

  12. Awesome, simply awesome. I love it. So great to see you guys together again. I hope everything works out and you can rekindle the friendship......

    Glad you had a nice time with sis and Gigi. I actually had a dream that I made up with the girl I had a falling out with. Now I'm guessing it was because of your last post!

  19. I'm SO glad this all worked out chica! I have to admit I was kind of nervous because you just never know with people. But hopefully you guys will seriously rekindle your friendship.
