running, driving, drinking, eating… and the best taco of my life

Hi! How’s your weekend going? Mine kicked off with a run:IMG_1950Short, fast, and sweet?IMG_1960After that, Anthony’s birthday celebrations began! His big day is on Monday, but we’re starting festivities early. First on the birthday boy’s wish list: THOR._DSC0217For a manly action movie, I actually thought it was pretty good! I’ll always be a comedy/chick flick/drama person, but sometimes it’s fun to sit through loud and violent monster destruction film. Right?

After the movie we headed to Calypso Cafe for a late lunch.calypso_cafe_nashville_DSC0215We inhaled everything because 1) we were starving and 2) the food was really, really good. I went for the “beans and three” plate — black beans, cornbread, collard greens, and sweet potatoes.calypso_cafe_nashville_DSC0226Up next was one of Anthony’s other favorite things: CARS._DSC0227We don’t have a car in DC, but often day dream about the day we’ll own one. A Nissan Rogue would be especially nice!_DSC0233We chatted with the sales guy and semi-pretended we might buy a car, so he let us test drive one!_DSC0228Of course we didn’t buy it, but it was fun pretending :).

Another Anthony favorite: WINE. We had a little time to kill, so popped in this little shop in East Nashville to see what they had on hand._DSC0236Of course we ended up buying a bottle. You can never have too much wine!

We worked up a thirst at the store, so then headed to Rumours East to drink! Ian (our wedding photographer) and his wife met us for some good wine and cocktails.rumours_east_nashville_DSC0241Didn’t take us long to empty our glasses…rumours_east_nashville_DSC0239Even though Ian wasn’t ‘on the job,’ he still took a photo for us 😉 !_DSC0246(ps see the red mark near my neck? That’s what happens when your running jacket doesn’t have a cloth-lined zipper)

Anyways… TACOS.taco_mamacita_nashville_DSC0253The last stop on our Nashville adventure: Taco Mamacita.taco_mamacita_nashville_DSC0248I’ve thought long and hard about this statement, and I’ve decided that I’m ready to make this announcement:

This was the best taco I’ve had in my entire life.taco_mamacita_nashville_DSC0255What a fun day.

  • Do you drive a car? If so, what kind?
  • Tacos: hard or soft?
  • What city do you live in?
