Kate's Bellybutton Lint Collection

I used to think blogs were self-indulgent navel gazing, but now I'm not so sure. From a practical standpoint, they're great for keeping up with friends, especially when you're awful about keeping in touch (like me). I know most people could probably care less what I think or do in a given week. For everyone else, this blog's for you! Enjoy my collection of hand-picked navel lint!

Margarita Bash at Sears Point

A couple of weekends ago we went to Sears Pt. to watch the races and socialize. Mickey didn't ride, though his collarbone has healed really well and his doctor said his range of arm motion is impressive. The main reason we went was every year Mickey tries to inject some fun into the pits by hosting a margarita bash. One of his racing sponsors is Julio from Tommy's Mexican Restaurant. Julio kindly provides us with lots of premium tequila and his own mix made from lime juice and agave nectar.

Needless to say this event is a BIG hit at the race track. Every season we get asked several times: "when is margarita night going to happen?" It's fun to see the look of surprise on people's faces when they try their first "Tommy's margarita". If your idea of a good margarita involves Cuervo and sour mix, you are really missing out. For ours we had Arrette reposado, a beautiful lowland tequila, mixed 1:1 with Tommy's mix.

Below are some pictures documenting the progression of this little event...
