saturday night's alright alright alright

saturday night's alright alright alright

i'll give someone blog bonus points if they know what song those lyrics are from

so saturday night kara and i decided to leave the yoga compound (aka the hotel - where we live, breathe, eat yoga 24-7) and it was the best decision! we went to the galleria mall. an interesting mall where you can actually smoke in the stores?! who wants to buy clothes with a side of ash? thought i said something else didn't you?! get your mind out of the gutter people. kidding. back to my enthralling story. okay so we got there around 6 in the evening and left at 10! the whole night was just what i needed. the minute we walked in we headed straight to starbucks for iced green tea- fabulous! i thought the little halloween chalk drawings were cute and a bit morbid on there beverage selection list/blackboard-but hey it's mexico. we did some shopping and decided to grab some dinner at none other than applebees. why in the world would we eat at applebees in mexico? it's the familiarity of a chain restaurant, you know sitting in the booth was oddly comforting. we got our fix of crap food and our friendly waitor named renee (yes a guy renee) even brought me a kids menu so i could color. listening to early 90's hits like 'rhythm is a dancer' and 'wannabe' by the spice girls while dining made me smile. kara and and i had a really good conversation about life and yoga (yes we can't get away!) that was really refreshing. just being away from the hotel and enjoying ourselves without having somewhere to be on a schedule was so nice. i feel like getting away - no matter how brief- allows for some perspective- which is what i needed for sure! we shopped a bit more and left in an great little volkswagon slugbug, that we both had to squeeze into the back to head back to the hotel. all in all - a wonderful time!

p.s. we did deserve a steak indulgence but don't worry we didn't give into the menu suggestion :)

Yes, yes written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin but let's be honest, it was really made popular by Hilary Duff and Nickelback.

By the by Alli, did you eat a death cake from Starbucks?!
