Yelapa, Black Sheep and catch up on my life because I know you're interested.

My sister is pregnant with another boy! I'm so excited. As you all know, the first one came pretty darned good and couldn't be more perfect.


So, we are all waiting with bated breath for the arrival of perfection, part two. However, let us not forget about the stunning and gorgeous Miss Taylor whom the world revolves around.


Needless to say, things have been major hectic. But, in a good way. I sold a house in January for 1/2 million, and am in the process of selling number two, which should close in February. This is very exciting for me as I have very specific goals I have set for myself this year.

One such goal is to get out and meet new people and not be such a damn hermit all the time! So, I went to a social gathering at Yelapa Playa Mexicana on Wednesday and had a blast. First, the people I met were amazing, second the atmosphere was festive and lastly, the food was to die for. Wow that really was some darn good food! I'd driven by this place a million times and never thought to go there. Well guess what, dear reader? Yelapa Playa Mexicana on Richmond, between Shepherd and Kirby, is now my "holy grail" for Mexican food. They specialize in Pacific Coast Inspired Mexican Fare. And, it is gooooood!

Their raw plates are my faves. As you know, I love me some sushi. So, the raw plate selection was especially enticing to me. The Cebiche and Campechana de Serrano were absolutely the best I've ever had. And, try the Cucumber Gazpacho. You can get it in a shot, cup or bowl. If you like Mussels, you will have a coronary over these.

The drinks are crazy good and ask for the best waiter, Israel. He is so sweet and attentive and a great waiter. Go to Yelapa Playa Mexicana today. You'll thank me for it later.

She's been making headlines all over the place with some of her innovative ideas. Email Aimee for help today. Trust me, you need it.

So, that is all for now folks. I hope to write again soon! ♥ ♥ ♥


  1. It was great finally meeting you at Yelapa! They've got some of my favorite food in town, and Aimee really knows how to throw a party.

  2. I'm salivating over those Yelapa photos! I'm thinking maybe Mexican tonight. And I love that pic of Trevor - hands in his hoodie just like Mommy :)
