My sister and mom got in last week and while my mom had a sister vacation with my aunts who live around here, I got to spent time with my younger (more fabulous) sister.
Friday I had a half day and we went to the beach!
That makes my legs sore just admiring her splits, lol.
It was a perfect beach day. We brought sandwiches down to the water napped, listened to music, and chatted before heading back in for the day.
That weekend my cousins and our London friend and our other friends came to hang out, so we first took them to our spot on the pier!
We had Mai Tais to kick off the weekend.
Then we headed back to our part of town for some deeeeeelicious Mexican food!
Ortega 120 is my FAVORITE South Bay Mexican joint because a) $2 super delicious tacos and b) margaritas made with only fresh squeezed juices (none of that nasty sweet and sour that's unforgivable with hangovers)
Plus it's day of the dead themed and there is something cool to look at in every corner!
It was a good place for our group of 10
Another favorite of mine is their fresh and pressed handmade tortillas. They are divine! I could eat 20.
When you first walk in you get to watch them making them right in front of you.
We finally sat down and ordered our meals. I ended up splitting a burrito with my cousin, and good thing too...
This thing was a monster! A delectable, smoothered monster.
It was so, so good and the giant portion was perfect enough to split between two!
The next day we burgered out at The Standing Room to treat our London friend to some great burgers.
And ended the night with a fully American Irish car bomb.
It was an eclectic mix of food and fun and over WAY too fast :(
