Rubio's on Taco Tuesdays

Guys, we all know how much we all love Taco Tuesdays, for me, it might as well be Taco everyday, but to stay in with the popular hashtag, lets just keep it as Taco Tuesdays. I grew up eating very flavorful foods, which consisted of tacos as well, so Mexican food has always been a very present thing there is not a given moment in my life that I've gone with out eating some form of Mexican inspired foods, even when I lived in Germany, I would do it at home. So when I was invited to try out Rubio's Coastal Grill, I jumped at the chance, it would have been silly to pass it down. I decided to make a sister day and invited my little sis along for the taco fun, I met up with her at the Shops at Midtown to check out the Rubio's that opened not that long ago, they have a few other locations in South Florida, one close to my home in Fort Lauderdale.  Anyway, as we arrived, I already knew what I wanted to have, I had to try their seasonal langostino lobster taco that is drizzled in basil butter, yup butter...nom! but being the seafood lover I am, I didn't stop there, I got a mango wild grouper taco and a gourmet shrimp taco, which, were equally as amazing. I was impressed by the quality and freshness of the ingredients, everything just felt so fresh, clean and crisp if that makes any sense, and that to me is what keeps me coming back.

What I love most about Rubio's is that they care about the environment, something that has been an important part in my life, especially lately, have been trying to make more conscious efforts to help the environment by the daily choices I make, and I felt so happy to know that at Rubio's they do the same, their restaurants and supplies are sustainable, and eco-friendly, as well as their seafood, which is responsibly sourced, and no hormone meats, how can you even feel bad about eating anything there? I had zero guilt ,when you can feel good about eating something good for you and good for the environment, it's a definite win for me. Sister, baby Olivia, Barney and I couldn't have had a better time having tacos, burritos, Mexican sodas, some laughs, and people watching. We later took a stroll around to burn out the calories, but gained it back when we had gelato, who was counting though? it was a good sister day, plus baby Olivia and Barney were able to come along. I enjoyed it so much, I brought the husband the next day to try it out, at the Fort Lauderdale location, and was just as satisfied.

If you guys want to have an awesome sauce day eating tacos, well you are in luck because if you click here, you'll get a free taco, FREE! go and enjoy it, trust, you won't regret the calories and let's just say, you'll be #oFISHallyObsessed like I am.

#TacoTuesdays ya'll.

Thank you to Rubio's Coastal Grill for sponsoring this post, all opinions are my own.

G A B L E S Strolling

I am going to sound like a broken record, but oh boy is it so hard for me to work on a post for the blog now a days, to make matters worse, half the time the wifi is either working at molasses speed or is not connecting, so the very little time that I find to get working on a post, I find myself trying to work out these technical issues, which by the time I am able to fix them, I have to go back to #mamaduties, so I end up back at square one. Anyway, enough about my rant, I want to work on some travel posts that I have way overdue, some that are two years old...yikes, but like that good old saying goes, better late than never. Hopefully this week or the following I can start on the editing part so that I can share some fun travels we did while we were still living in the EU (sigh) and pre-baby era. 

About this post, funny how social media works, I find it spectacular both for its pros and cons. This being a pro, see. I met Jenise, the photographer through social media, her husband and I went to high school together and she started following my blog, and one day she realized we had one degree of separation, or however that works. I began to follow her, she has an adorable blog about mommyhood called A Toddler & A Topknot but as you may already suspect, she is also a photographer. As I became a mom, I began to reach out to other moms or soon to be moms just to get tips and such, and she was one of them. That brought us to this point, where we worked together on two outfit sessions. we had such a fun day, kiddos and all, that I wish I had more days like that, with like minded mamas who want to create, connect and lend a hand. Thank you for the lovely photos and for a fun day Jenise!

J A R R I T O S Saturday

J A R R I T O S Saturday

As a new mom, getting on a schedule of any sort has been a struggle, at least for me. I think the major problem is that I am currently a stay at home mom as they call it, therefore, the only schedule I have managed to master is the feeding and sleeping schedule of #babyOlivia, but slowly I am working on getting my thing together and working on my creative mojo. I am also, crawling out the new parent cloud that every new parent goes through for the first two months, more on that on another post. Plus, I know that most people now a days don't really check blogs anymore, so that makes anyone feel uninspired, you want to know that people will take the time to come to your blog to see what you have to say, after all, it takes a lot of effort to work on one particular post, but even with that knew reality, I get nostalgic and so I still come back. 

Anyway, this post was an impromptu one, as so it seems to be the new case for me. This look was worn for my mama's birthday breakfast at Cracker Barrel in Homestead, every time I am in Homestead, which is not often, I make it a point to go to my go to Mexican supermarket and stock up on all sorts of goodies, which I posted on my IG stories the day I was there, that includes the never to miss Jarritos Mexican soda that I love, the only soda I will drink, because I am a strictly water kinda girl. What is your choice of drink on the daily?

Side note, I am currently obsessed with kimonos, like this Forever 21 that I am wearing, but I want this ONE as well.
