A Wonderful B-Day!

Hi there!

Happy Monday to you all, back to business right? I hope everyone had a restful and fun weekend. Yesterday was my 28th birthday, and I am very thankful that I got to spend the day relaxing & laughing, with my loved ones!

We had lunch over at El Charro, a delicious Mexican restaurant in Tucson's El Presidio neighborhood downtown. They have been around since 1922, and reside in a lovely quaint little historic location, that was once the family home. Decorated in the bright vibrant colors of Mexico and surrounded by native antiques & collectibles, along with tons of pictures of beautiful Mexican calender girls. I just eat it up every time I visit!

My Grandmother used to love to eat there all the time when she was little. Back then, downtown was the center of business and people would walk everywhere. Her and my great Grandmother would take a walk on payday Friday's, after she payed all the bills downtown. Then go have lunch together. I have been wanting to do an entry about this restaurant for sometime now, just haven't got around to it. Will do soon....

Anyway, here are a few photos from my birthday lunch! And a few birthday margarita's in te-he!
