Made it Monday

Didn’t think I was going to get a chance to participate in some of my favorite linkups today, but I made it! Now I’ll tell you what’s been marvelous about my week.

The most marvelous tidbit of this week is my partner in crime getting a job!

Oh, hello adulthood, nice to meet you.

One down, one to go. Wish me luck on my job applications! So proud and excited for my manfriend, especially because he insisted on taking me out for a celebratory dinner at Bandera.

Holy moly, I forgot how freaking delicious everything is! I haven’t eaten there since my 20th birthday forever and ever ago.

Their cornbread appetizer is unreal:

It’s essentially a coffee cake, but in cornbread form… or vice versa? All I know is that we devoured the thing in mere minutes.

While JD sipped his martini, I went to town on this bad boy:

Their Moscow Mule was outrageously good too. So crisp and sweet. Mmmm. Plus I LOVE that they served it in the traditional glass; most restaurants I go to don’t do that.

I got the Macho Salad for my entree:

Wow. This is HANDS DOWN the best salad I’ve ever had. Those HUGE chunks of avocado and goat cheese are only the tip of the iceberg. Buried in there was juicy grilled chicken, roasted almonds and the sweetest dates ever. Phenomenal.

JD got the Wagyu Tri-Tip & Butternut White Cheddar Enchiladas:

Scrumptious as well. We barely had any leftovers even though we were so full from cornbread! We definitely didn’t have any room for dessert though. Maybe next time!

We also snapped a bunch of pictures in the mirrors on the escalators on our way out.

So proud of my love!

I actually do have more pictures to share with you this week (finally getting back into the swing of things after spring break!) but I’ll save those for later. Hope everyone had a marvelous Monday and don’t forget to check out these superultracool linkups:



  1. AHH congrats to him! That must be so exciting and is definitely a reason to celebrate. And that corn bread?!! My god. I❤ cornbread and I can't get over the texture of it in your pictures. It looks unreal! As far as drinks go, Moscow Mules are BY FAR me and Kyle's favorite drink. So refreshing🙂

  2. Congrats manfriend!!! That’s wonderful🙂 and the food you two got to celebrate just made my mouth water as did that moscow mule…love those! The bar we love by our house serves them in the mugs too…i’m determined to buy a few of those at some point to look super awesome😉
