Best Dressed

Last week I received an email from Abuelos informing me that on Tuesday's, it's 'kids day' where they eat free. That's beneficial for us as McKayla doesn't seem to care much for them, so if we went, and she didn't eat, we weren't out any money. Then, I got another email offering us a buy-one-get-one-free-entree as an anniversary present (our anniversary is Monday).

I called to see if the 'coupons' could be combined and was informed that EVERY Tuesday was 'kids eat free' day, so of course it'd work. The guy also told me that they have face painting and a theme every week. This weeks theme was Cowboy/Cowgirl.

Then I got ANOTHER email from Abuelos saying that July 1st, they were celebrating 25 years with 25¢ enchiladas.

Wowee! Two free meals AND 25¢ enchiladas!

Let's go to Abuelos! Haha

So McKayla dressed up in her Cowgirl outfit that Meme bought/made for her to wear with Butterscotch. She had her hat too but decided not to wear it inside. Emily was ALSO dressed up in HER country outfit but hung out in the car while we ate.

We get seated and a woman walks by with a bunch of balloons. She stops when she sees McKayla and grins real big and tells McKayla how adorable she thinks she is and gives her a balloon. A few minutes later, as our server is taking our order, another lady comes up with a gift bag. She hands it to McKayla and tells her that she won the prize for best dressed! The look on McKayla's face was priceless (McKayla ended up telling me later that she didn't know that she was that beautiful to get a prize. <3 ).

Her loot. :-D
Bubbles, soccer ball, jump rope, water bottle, lip gloss and a purple
squishy ball creature thing. LOL

The woman that gave McKayla the gift bag, told me to hang onto the soccer ball b/c we could bring it in for a FREE queso dip EACH visit! I LOVE their queso dip!

McKayla also got a bag of popcorn and her face painted and while she was getting it done, I was talking to the woman. I was telling the women that I didn't know they were giving out prizes and she said that McKayla won it hands down b/c she was the cutest/best dressed. I laughed and said that it looked like McKayla was the ONLY one that had dressed up but the woman said it didn't matter, McKayla won fair and square. :-D

McKayla was tickled beyond belief to have won anything and I was too. We didn't get to go to Abuelos often b/c McKayla didn't like it, but we may not be able to keep her away from there now! LOL


  1. Oh wow!! That's so cool! She definitely won fair and square. That's the cutest outfit ever! Free queso every visit is the best!!!!!!!!!! Congrats!

    1. Oh and I forgot happy anniversary!!

    2. Thanks! She is pretty adorable in that outfit and you should see her strut her stuff when she's wearing it. LOL

The Great Dane Standard Through the Ages Part III ~1976~

The 1976 Official Illustrated Standard
Revised & Edited by The Great Dane Club of America, Inc. Written text AKC approved August 10, 1976 Illustrated by Donald E. Gauther - Great Dane Breeder & Judge Copyright, 1972

1. GENERAL CONFORMATION (a) GENERAL APPEARANCE. The Great Dane combines in its distinguished appearance dignity, strength and elegance with great size and a powerful, well-formed, smoothly muscled body. He is one of the giant breeds, but is unique in that his general conformation must be so well balanced that he never appears clumsy and is always a unit--the Apollo of dogs. He must be spirited and courageous--never timid. He is friendly and dependable. This physical and mental combination is the characteristic which gives the Great Dane the majesty possessed by no other breed. It is particularly true of this breed that there is an impression of great masculinity in dogs as compared to an impression of great femininity in bitches. The male should appear more massive t…

(Typed for easy reading below each picture which has made this post EXTREMELY long. Also, you *should* be able to click on the pictures to enlarge, but sadly still not enough to read the charts.)
