el take it easy

You know those days that while they're happening you think to yourself, "this is the best day ever."  I had one of those this weekend. Saturday, I woke up, went for a run, grabbed an iced coffee, got quarters and was doing laundry all before 10:00 a.m. If you know me, this is quite the accomplishment. It felt good to be productive. Later, I met some friends at El Take It Easy, Jay Porter's other restaurant, for lunch. How great is that name? Though the prices were high for the small portions, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Plus the yellowtail carpaccio tacos were pretty dang perfect.


cutest couple ever

{I gotta say, it was a good day. Yes that was an Ice Cube reference.}
