“On a Tuesday morning…”

Actually it’s Tuesday evening now, and I should be getting ready for bed. But it’s been a little hectic. We had to gather all the necessary supplies so that (weather permitting) the bambino can go swimming tomorrow at daycare. Which meant getting some little swimmer diapers, sunscreen, etc. And he needed regular diapers. After popping by the store, I decided to let Guadalajara do the cooking for us. They recently remodeled, and while I don’t have pictures of the old interior, the new expansion is rather colorful:

The bambino especially liked the new decor:

Luckily, the food was excellent as always:

Chicken tacos. And no beans, as I am anti-refried bean. Anti-pinto bean in general. Some days, I wish I liked them, since they’d be a super-cheap source of protein, but I’d rather have meat.

And after that, we came home, I changed out of my work clothes rather quickly and dashed off to get my hair cut:

And for once in a self-portrait, I’m NOT wearing a black t-shirt. Go figure. It was much nicer this time around, as I was not hacking up a lung, I could breathe, and my stylist & I had a nice chat about stuff!

Now that I have another load of laundry under my belt, everything is set for tomorrow morning, and all I have left to do is wash my face & brush my teeth, I’m off to bed.

Sharing is caring!

  1. That is the coolest interior I’ve ever seen! I want my next dining room to look like that. Your hair looks great!

    • Erin–It’s too bad you can’t see it in person…For one, the place is HUGE now. For two, well, I’ll just have to go back and take more pictures, because there’s a LOT more. It’s insane (but in a good way)!

  2. Hi, Rachel. I think this place is so colourful and looks like it does Mexican cuisine well that I would have to eat there if ever in Brookings (I still need SD and AK for my list of 50 states, so I’m serious – and the Badlands!).


    • Hi Dan–The previous interior was okay–Certainly not nearly as colorful and bright as it is now. The tables & booths are the biggest change–They were just standard restaurant tables before, so they’re much more fun to look at and eat off now! Guadalajara is one of the 3 Brookings restaurants (George’s & Nick’s Hamburgers are the other 2) that I always suggest to family or friends if they come here to visit. And if you ever do cross SD off your 50 states list, we should do a blogger meet-up, be it here or the Badlands (I haven’t made it that far west yet!)! :)

  3. I’d be willing to bet they got it from the same place. It’s pretty awesome, and it does make the place that much more fun to visit!

  4. Agreed. Our little one likes the colors, too. And it certainly blows away the plain old diner decor left over from the old Uncle Ed’s Cafe days.
