T Stands Chuy's

Welcome to this weeks T-day post, linking up once again with Elizabeth and the T-gang.
This week's drink photos came from a day of shopping with my GD Hannah.  Her birthday is next Saturday, and I asked her if she wanted to do lunch and do some shopping for her birthday........of course the answer was "yes!"

I told her we could have lunch first, then shop.....or shop then have lunch.......she chose shop then lunch.  It was HER choice as to where she wanted to shop.....her choice....Target!!

We spent a couple hours shopping, getting her a couple of outfits. Then she helped me choose some outfits for my 2 year old GD, Samantha too......whose birthday was in July......but I was buried in packing boxes!

Then she chose to go to Chili's for lunch, but the wait was over 30 minutes at 1:30 in the afternoon!!  She said pass and chose Chuy's Mesquite Broiler........a semi fast food place. You can view the menu here.  

We started with chips and salsa......I had the salsa

One foot is still in little girl mode and the other in young lady mode.......she chose the little girl foot and a coloring page *grin*

We ordered the sampler plate, which was way too much food.  She had the shrimp off my plate, I consumed the coleslaw . Drinks were sodas.......something neither of us drink very often, but this was a special occasion.

She's grinning because her Papa joined us a little late, but he was paying the bill so we allowed it!


Before we made the move DEB sent me this gorgeous post card.

Then, as soon as she got my new address I got this one in the mail!! A print of a painting she did....I think it was from her window, as we have seen that birdbath on T-days! ;)

I'm in "slow mode" today, so this is a short (for me) post this week.
Hope you will take some time, and a drink and join the gang over at Elizabeth's blog.
Happy T-day


  1. Happy birthday to Hannah! Looks like a very enjoyable day. I see you are another lucky recipient of Deb's art. Enjoy and happy T day!

  2. A day out with a GD has to be a great day. Makes me miss being a girl and going out with my Nana. Your lunch looks good but boy is it huge! Happy T day. Erika

  3. What a fun time you and Hannah must have had. I wanted to get to Target for their back-to-school supplies (like glue, etc), but didn't make it, since I'm still not feeling well. It wasn't worth getting sicker while I was out just to save a few pennies on glue.

    Happy birthday to Hannah. She was really enjoying herself, I can tell. Goodness, you got a lot of food with that sampler, but no one would have gotten my shrimp (grin). Of course, I thought the vegetarian combo platter looked great, too.

    Thanks for sharing Hannah's pre-birthday gift, as well as your food and sodas with us for T this week. BTW, I loved the art Deb sent you, too.

  4. What a great day our, and your food looks fantastic. Like the young lady with the colouring page! Great card from Deb! Have a wonderful T Day, hugs, Valerie

  5. greetings to Hannah, she Looks quite happy:) awesome Card you got from deb! happy t-day!

  6. A happy post and good to know that your daughter chose a colouring page--I admit I always think about one myself when there is one to chose at eateries. Have resisted so far though.

    The food looks very tempting and lots for two people.

    Have a very happy T Day

    Love Chrissie xx

  7. It looks like you had a fun day out with your GD Hannah and I bet she loved shopping for those new outfits 😁. Your lunch looks yummy, I would have been happy to eat the shrimp too ... lol πŸ˜‰. Wishing you a very Happy T Day! J 😊

  8. Shopping and lunch with a GD is the very best kind of day isn't it? I like your latest post card. You and Deb have been exchanging postcards for quite some time haven't you? Fun mail!

  9. Pssst... i need to tell you a secret..... About a month ago hubs and i grabbed lunch out and i grabbed the coloring sheet and a pack of crayons and we sat there and colored together until the food came.... !! I was so tickled to see hubby color! Maybe we never really grow up.. lol Great seeing your day with Hannah... those days are to be treasured... So nice to see my postcards pop up on your blog and i'm so glad you liked them... Happy T day Krisha!! Hugs! deb

  10. It sounds like you both had a good day out, I think you will both have fond memories to keep.
    Happy T day.

  11. What a nice outing you had with your GD, Krisha. Love the cards from Deb. It's so nice that she's getting set up in her craft room and the art work is starting to pour forth again - rather than drizzle - lol. I know you can relate to how disruptive moving is!

    Happy T-Day! Hugs, Eileen

  12. Happy birthday to her! It sounds like such a joy-filled day. The food looks tasty.

    Happy T Tuesday

  13. How wonderful! Looks like a great day to me - shopping and sharing food! My GD usually takes me to Clares Accessories - somewhere I wouldn't normally go but I love it!Happy T day! Chrisx

  14. What fun to take your GD shopping! Food looks pretty good, and wonderful art work from Deb!

  15. Happy Birthday, Hannah! Looks like you had a wonderful celebration. Shopping and lunch a perfect combo. I loved seeing my girlies on the brink of adulthood. Wondering what kind of amazing women they would become. Wish those days lasted a little longer. Enjoy on the brink days with your GD

  16. Happy Birthday to Hannah! what a fun way to spend the day!
    loved the postcards-Happy T Day Kathy
