The 4th

It's been wicked hot here. The 4th of July saw temps of over 100 degrees. I didn't even want to drag myself to the air conditioned mall, so I shopped online and bought my favorite Gap work pants (Modern Boot) and a new watch on Amazon. Needless to say, this oppressive heat is depressing me. I am sick of being cooped up inside. I want to go on walks outside, play tennis and go on bike rides. I just want a normal summer!

So, we didn't go to any cookouts or watch fireworks this year. It's just too hot to do any of those things.

We celebrated our independence by going to Mexico, well sort of. We went to El Beso in Greenfield for dinner last night.

Their margaritas are really strong and yummy. We shared a half pitcher of raspberry flavored margaritas. These made my husband very smiley and funny. ;) Well he is usually both of those things, but those characteristics were heightened a bit with some alcohol in his system.


Craig was happy with the chips and salsa. Their salsa is also very good. Trust me, Craig is a salsa aficionado and is picky about his salsa.


I liked the decor.


Well, maybe not the animal mounted on the wall.


I had vegetarian quesadilla for my meal and it was very good. I'd have it again next time.

Hope you had a good 4th of July!


  1. El Beso is awesome. And for how big it is, it's always packed.

  2. Happy 4th of July! I hope you guys were able to stay cool! I was visiting the midwest over the holiday and I was cookin'!

  3. It was crazy hot here last week as well, normally where we camp, once the sun goes down the campfires start and you need a sweatshirt and pants. This past week was so disgustingly hot, the campground was silent at night except for the hum of air conditioners in the campers...ours included!

  4. If your husband has a favorite salsa he likes to buy to use at home, I'd love to hear it. I can never find one I like quite as much as what we get at some restaurants. It may be a freshness issue.
