This weekend Karla came to visit. We had an absolute blast! The weekend started out with a bang on Friday night when we traveled to Atlantic City to Harrah’s Resort. We started the night out at Dos Caminos. I had wanted to try this restaurant ever since I saw the Kardashians eating there on their show. I know that those ladies know good food when they see it. You can tell by the junk in their trunk. I had the pescado tacos which were unbelievably delicious. We also ordered guacamole for the table which is an absolute must-have with your complimentary tortilla chips and trio of salsas. I had a blood orange mojito which was a delightful treat for the tastebuds and of course for getting your buzz-on.
We continued the night by going to a Little Big Town concert. This group is phenomenal and their harmonies are out of this world. They sound almost exactly as they do on their record. They are simply amazing and I would definitely be happy to go see them on their next tour. One of my favorite parts of the night was when they did the Scattered, Smothered, and Covered section where they covered the following songs: Grenade, Moves Like Jagger, Born This Way and Some Nights. It really showed their true talent and artistry. Check out this video clip from You Tube (I can’t figure out how to upload my own). Kasey Musgraves opened for Little Big Town and she was fantastic as well. She is a talented singer/songwriter and she write some songs for the new show Nashville, an example being Undermine. My favorite song of the night from Kasey was It Is What It Is, but her most well known single is Merry Go Round.
On Saturday, Karla and I went to see Safe Haven. I read the book so I knew what was going to happen. Josh Duhamel is always nice to look at. THen we went to a local watering hole for some libations.
On Sunday, we rounded out the weekend by planning our trip to San Francisco. We have scheduled a trip to the wine country, Muir Woods, Alcatraz, a walking tour of Chinatown, and we purchased our CitiPass. Any suggestions for our trip are welcome. We were quite hungry after all this planning. Luckily, Karla brought me some Indian food to try. It was my first tasting of Indian food and I’d say it was a success. We had chicken tikka masala. I had so much fun this weekend and I have next weekend to look forward to as well 😉

Thanks for sharing that Little Big Town link. So fun to see them covering those songs!
