Day #3 of giving thanks… (see day #1 here, and day #2 here)

Today I am thankful for…

1. Delicious, fresh pears with creamy cheese.

We had this for a snack yesterday and it seriously hit the spot. I found this new cheese at Whole Foods; they were sampling it and I had a little bite, then after I walked away I kept thinking about it. It was so good: creamy, sharp, amazing. So I bought some. :)

It wasn’t a bad deal!

2. A fabulous dinner last night at El Camino in the Highlands! My father-in-law is in town this week and we always try to take him to our new favorite places whenever he is here. One of our new favorite places is El Camino.

They have great ambience, good beer deals, and delicious food. We tried a new beer last night, the Del Norte Ale. It was great: light, flavorful, and not filling.

Food was also out of this world! Jason and I both voted it our favorite place for Mexican. We are big Mexican food fans, so that’s quite the compliment (you’re welcome, El Camino :) ).

Chili rellenos for me. (Bad lighting on all of these, I know. I’m sorry.)

Tacos al pastor for Jay.

And tamales for Jason.

We all licked our plates clean.

3. That Jay is here! Woo-hoo!

4. My cute Ava Bear, who has been such a snuggler lately!

How sweet is that little face? I got up just to reheat my coffee yesterday morning…and this is how she stared at me until I came back and sat down with her again. I freaking LOVE this dog!!

5. I’m thankful for what this day will hold! It’s a big day…can’t disclose what is going on just yet, but I am ridiculously thankful for it! (I’ll tell you soon…I promise!)

Happy Wednesday!!
