Date Night

Happy Monday Friends!  Time to ease into another week.  For those of you with kiddos heading back to school this week, I wish you luck and lots of coffee.  I thought I'd ease into the week with a recap of our date night Saturday night.

Saturday night is the night we typically go out for dinner.  We try and limit ourselves to one dinner out per week and cook the rest at home. This Saturday we opted for Gloria's.   There are several in the DFW area, but a new one opened up in Southlake and that's where we found ourselves.  Fortunately the rain had cleared out and it was a pretty nice evening.  Not oppressively hot and the rain had pretty much gone.

Gloria's has Mexican and Salvadoran food.  Usually I go for tacos or flautas because of course #tacosareneverabadidea.  This time though, I went for the grilled shrimp with garlic and rice and oh. my. stars.  It was so delicious.  Phillip went with one of his usuals, tacos al carbon.  My favorite thing about Gloria's though is the chips and salsa. They bring out a fresh red salsa, it has a little heat to it, but nothing too bad, but the other - I can't even it's so delicious.  It's blended black bean dip/salsa and it comes warm.  It's the thing I look forward to most.

 I like to dress up a little bit when we go out to dinner.  Nothing crazy, but a dressier shoe, a pretty top, and some great accessories.  Because here's the deal - it gets hot in Texas but it's usually very cold in restaurants and such so you need to find a balanced outfit.  The jeans keep me warm, but the top is summery.  This blue tank really pops and the gold Stella & Dot jewelry adds a nice finish.


Sorry for the seatbelt in the shot, but we were in the truck already, ha.  I went a little extra with the make-up though and wanted to give you a peek at what it looked like. One of the people I follow on YouTube is JamiePaigeBeauty.  This is her "summer going out look", and I love it.  I've worn this particular make-up look at least 5 times this summer and it never fails.  You can find the tutorial here.   

The exciting people we are, after dinner we headed back home to watch more of the Olympics #olympicsgeeks #teamUSA.  We are suckers for track and field so to watch almost a whole evening of it was right up our alley.  A glass of wine, some Olympics, and a delicious dinner from Gloria's - a perfect date night.
