{the dining crew: mol, jo and i have been experimenting with new restaurants every friday night and this was our fourth go-around. a fun summer tradition before i have to part ways with these two in the fall. so sad!}

As far as bad weeks go, this one was one for the books. I couldn't be happier to see the clock merely minutes from midnight, hoping that will be the long awaited closure to my bad luck streak of a week. We all heard about the orientation fiasco. I had a similar incident at my eye doctor appointment (I always dread these) in which I was told I was not insured to have the appointment until the first of July. So glad they told me that prior to me waking up at the crack of dawn to have my pupils dilated and to robotically shout random letters and digits the size of ants. Matters only got worse when I was in a car accident Friday with a fellow intern while running errands for work. She was driving, so no guilt or financial consequences here, but the entire incident was frightening and definitely stirred me up. And in my most recent news, I just had to remove myself from my own bedroom because a friendly critter/wasp/junebug/scarylookinginsect seems to think he has found a new residence in my quaint little bedroom. Just splendid. Mi casa es not su casa!

So, though individually my setbacks may be minor, added together it makes for one heck of a long week. But, let's not be depressing here people, BOD is going to see the glass half full and show you one way I've learned to cope with tiresome days and multiple dismays: good food and even greater girlfriends on a Friday night.

Mollie and Molly. My NYC bud and loyal BOD follower. The different spellings of our names prevents most confusion...but not all!

Meredith and our guest of honor, Ashley, who will be at UT next year. She's from Louisiana but just purchased a house in Houston, so we wanted to take her out for some real Tex Mex at Brian Caswell's newest hot spot, El Real, in Montrose. We even got the pleasure of meeting Mr. Caswell!

Me and blondie with her new bangs which are oh so adorable. Wish I was as risky with my hair-dos.

Caroline, Alexandra and Meredith. All future horns!

You can see the screen that projects old movies on the wall, which we had a perfect view of from our upstairs seating. The restaurant used to be an old-timey movie theatre and is now newly renovated into this top-notch Mexican restaurant. Never too much Tex-Mex. Queso will always make a Texan girl smile (no matter how rough her week as been). Remember that boys.
