Velvet Margaritas

One of my very best friends, Taryn, is staying with us for the weekend! She arrived on Wednesday night after braving traffic all the way from LAX. After she arrived, we ate some Chinese food, drank some of Josh's homebrew, and watched America's Next Top Model. Then, there was a quick trip to Golden Spoon.

Yesterday, I headed into work for the day, and Taryn worked, poked around town, and put together a lovely dinner for Josh and me (which was so nice)! After dinner, we headed into Hollywood to the Velvet Margarita, where we met up with Jackie, PJ, Susan, and a few of Susan's neighbors.

We ordered the Velvet Margarita, which seemed fitting. It was huge and served in a ridiculous, hollowed-out pineapple!

That huge margarita should have been enough, and yet Taryn and I each had two more. Our bartender was pretty heavy handed, so by the time we were on number three, I happily exclaimed to Taryn: "I'm pretty sure this one is going to be a mistake!" Famous last words, right?

Taryn is already a crack up, so you add a few margaritas in the mix, and I was cracking up all night long. It was the type of uncontrollable laughter that lasted so long my stomach started cramping, eyes watering, and face hurting. Very good times.

So, I am going to do a little work this morning and then take the second half of the day to run around with Taryn. Happy Easter!
