good morning! i’m back in madison after a quick little “vacation” in st. louis and my to-do list for today is outrageous, plus i overslept, so this is going to be a quickie!
first, i want to quickly recap brad’s and my dinner from sunday night. i spent about 7 straight hours putting finishing touches on my research proposal sunday afternoon, so when 8:30pm hit and we hadn’t eaten dinner yet, i asked for a margarita! 🙂 so we headed to our favorite mexican restaurant near brad’s house.
el maguey! i love this place. the food is quick, their chips and salsa are delicious, and they make strong margaritas! so of course, those were first on the list:
chips and salsa
and margaritas! 🙂 after we ordered we just chatted away and enjoyed the night. i had to snap a photo of the decor. it’s so bright and festive!
each booth-back and the table tops of non-booth tables had these fun murals painted on them. there were also murals along the ceiling as kind of a border.
our food arrived very quickly! i got the fajita quesadilla, which had grilled veggies and cheese in it with a side of rice, lettuce, pico, and guacamole!
i thought brad took a photo of his chimichanga, too, but my camera must have eaten it.
i highly recommend el maguey if you’re craving mexican in the st. louis area! we’ve never been disappointed there.
30 day challenge: day 17
today’s challenge is to post a photo of something that has had a big impact on your life lately.
i know this is a little boring, but this is my programs’s handbook of procedures. this has been my life lately as i turned in my research proposal to my committee and am now preparing my presentation and defense of my proposal (my 2nd preliminary exam) for march 28.
this has definitely been in the forefront of my mind lately and has impacted my life immensely. the stress that comes with preparing for an oral preliminary exam is one that i’m thankful i haven’t experienced much in my life. it’s so scary and i’m almost to the point where i’m just going to go in there cross my fingers and hope all goes well because i’m not sure what else i can do to prepare. has anyone else had this feeling with a major project/presentation?
alright, that’s all i’ve got for you guys today! i’m off to tackle that to-do list!! have a wonderful thursday!
what’s your favorite kind of food to eat at restaurants?
i love indian and japanese restaurants the most because i feel like i can’t make that food at home (yet!). i mix up mexican dishes all the time at home!
