A Litttle Summer Fun & Restaurant Review

Hey Dolls,

I have come to grips that my summer vacay is almost over!!!  I decided to go visit one of my BFF's for a little fun before it's back to work for me.

Yesterday morning we went for a run and the sun was BLAZING!!!  I think it is safe to say that I've got a nice bronzed tan LOL!

Here is my OOTD
In the summer, I love wearing dresses!  They're cute, comfy, and no fuss when it's time to get dressed to enter the heat that awaits you.  I fell in love with this peplum dress that I got from Ross and guess what else.....it was ONLY $5!!!  Yes, five dollars!  You all have seen these Kenneth Cole wedges before here.

After our run, we had brunch, went shopping, and got some froyo from Mochi.  
I love these frozen yogurt places that have been popping up everywhere but Tutti Fruitti is still my FAV!  Check out my post about them here.

Later on we went to dinner at Latinos Y Mas-Latin Fusion Restaurant!  My friend told me that she wanted me to try this place because she was sure I'd love it!
  It's a family owned restaurant and they pride themselves on serving Latin cuisine with a Mediterranean flair!  Job well done because the food here is AH-MA-ZING!!!
For starters we were given complimentary chips and salsa before we even placed our drink orders....that's what I'm talking about!
We both ordered the same exact thing which was the 
Carne Azada con Chimichurri which came with a house salad.
I don't normally care for creamy salad dressings.  Italian is my go-to dressing but the house dressing was described as being a creamy Italian vinaigrette so I decided to try it and it was pretty good.
Latinos Y Mas Spanish Cuisine on Urbanspoon
Here is the Flank steak which came with yellow rice and black beans, that green chimichurri that was so dang good, and sweet plantains which is that funny looking stuff next to the rice.  Ok so let me just tell you something.....this was so freggin good that I ate every bit!  (don't judge me) LOL!  I don't normally finish my dinner meals that I show you guys but this right here.........I couldn't stop eating it.

Be back soon!

  16. Very cute outfit! the food looks so good. I have been dining out so much lately that I have had to really amp up my workouts. Now after looking at your photos, I suddenly want flank steak, LOL

  17. You are so cute, Trice! Missed you!! *hugs* I also am jelly that you scored that dress for $5. While in Texas I visited the Ross there like the day before I left and was uber pissed off with myself for not having gone during the previous 3 weeks when I could have shopped, shopped, shopped and just mailed my purchases back to Jersey so I wouldn't get charged with more than one luggage. *crap* lol
    And per usual, your food pictures have made my tummy growl. I should, from now on, cease to visit your blog until I've eaten a meal. I'm just too lazy to get up and fix myself something or go drive somewhere. It's my first day back in the blogging world and I've spent the last -no kidding- three+ hours catching up on friends' blogs! I've missed you all! haha

  18. One thing I love about FL is the huge number of Latin restaurants, heavenly. It seems that the summer went by so quickly

  19. $5!!!!!!! Now tats a major score!!!!! Yup, I agree Summer went by wayyyy too fast!


  20. Oooooh I'm loving the sandals! Such a perfect summer outfit!
