Girl-bonding time with mi suegra

I had a wonderful girl-bonding afternoon with my mother-in-law. It was an afternoon of shopping, salon time, merienda (late afternoon snack between lunch and dinner) and culminated with a movie at the Rockwell Cinema.

For merienda, we had some Churros con Chocolate and Coffee at Dulcinea Rockwell while listening to beautiful live piano music. I loved the churros, but I was never a fan of thick hot chocolate. But I guess it's good churros since mi suegra loves it. Next time I'm going to try dunking it in coffee instead, just like my mother-in-law.

The movie, Date Night, was a disappointment to us both. My mother-in-law was asleep most of the movie and it took all my will power not to follow suit! I just expected it to be much, much funnier considering the great cast, who are all very funny in their own right. I don’t know how it could just be average funny, not side-splitting funny?!? It didn’t help that there were so many dragging moments.
