My Dad Told Me to Write about Tacos.


That seems like an appropriate greeting, since my dad told me that I needed to write about tacos. This is my dad: 
Cute, huh? Sorry for the iPhone quality.

This was our conversation:
Me: I don't know what to blog about.
Dad: Blog about all the weird stuff in America.
Me: I did that already.
Dad: Blog about how tacos made from flour tortillas are way better than the ones made with corn tortillas.
Me: Are you serious?
Dad: Yeah, it's a good, solid blog topic.

Well, Dad - consider it blogged. 

Seriously, though - If you're ever in the Wichita area, Taco Shop has some of the best flour tacos around, and you can get a dozen for $7. Holy amazeballs. So good. I may or may not have eaten my weight in tacos today. You're welcome, Rosie and Sara. If you guys weren't the ones I was talking about tacos to... then just ignore that.   

In other news... I finished a blog design. Actually, I finished two. I just forgot to take a screenshot of one of them, so you only get to see one. If you click it, it takes you to Meg's blog, where you can see it live.
fonts used: Trendex & just realize
And just for you, Emily: My cat had an affair with its father's best friend and is now pregnant with quintuplets.

No, that isn't true. I just wanted to give Emily a good read, in case the taco thing wasn't interesting enough. Don't go spreading those nasty rumors, y'all. And please, please do not ever let me say "y'all" again. Ever. 

And... That's all I've got.

Kym said...

AHAHAHAHA!!! y'all....that was funny.

also, your dad is wrong - tacos made from corn tortillas are the best. but my bf would side w/ your dad. that's just craziness, i say!

I believe your dad never ate LA street tacos. The best thing in the world. And from corn tortillas...gasp!

As it turns out, I will be in Wichita in September. We will be checking out the Taco shop. Thanks Alyx's dad for convincing Alyx that this was a worthwhile blogging topic.

...I'm really glad your cat won't be trying out for Springer.

Katrin said...

Your dad sounds funny!
And I LOVE your blog designs, Alyx!

Sadly I say y'all all the time.... And not just cause I'm from Texas.

My friends in Hawaii made fun of me all the time. It's just an easier way to say all of you.

Anyway the taco thing sounds great... Especially cause I'm starving. :)

I pretty much crave tacos constantly and this post has not helped! Tell your dad thanks a lot! ;-)

seriously. if i could live on one food for the rest of my life, it'd be tacos!!

i also prefer flour soft shells to corn, buttt technically that is not authentic. whatevs i say though.

also, you should blog about what your daily life is back in the US now! maybe a compare/contrast germany/USA.

anddd that's all i got! lol

Unknown said...

SHOOT! That design is fire lady!

I'm so about tacos I can't believe you posted about them - sadly I know now where I'll be picking up my lunch. The Mexican restaurant behind my office ahhh.

Not mad at all.

p.s. You won my Shiseido giveaway! Email me a mailing address when you have time so I can ship it off to you :)

Brittany said...

Every single time me and the boy go to the grocery store for taco supplies I forget if I like flour or corn tortillas. So frustrating. Haha

Sara Louise said...

Taco shout out - HOLLA! And heck to the yes flour tacos are better than corn tacos, every self-respecting Texan knows that!
Props to your Pops for the taco blog topic, he obviously knows whats up.

That's pretty funny! I love how everyone has an opinion on what you should blog about. My hubby tells me weird things like that all the time. LOL. Love the design too!

Ashley said...

You are so fantastic at blog designs!!!! Love this.

katilda said...

i am passionate about tacos. fiery passion. but i prefer the corn ones, unless the flour we speak of is whole wheat flour. that's all...

Nicole said...

LOL your dad is too funny.

Your dad is hilarious. And your blog design looks awesome!

Emily said...

Your dad is correct - tacos are a solid blog topic. And now I want to eat them.

And I might have actually laughed out loud when I read that about your cat. You know I am gullible right? At first I thought - wow that's amazing. And then I clued in. But it's quite plausible for this to happen to a cat.

Lindsey Madison said...

OHMYGOSH!!!!!!! My dad does that thing with the doctor gloves too!!!!!!!!!! he did it until the nurses told him to quit. XD

Breenah said...

Don't forget Monday night has All You Can Eat! And I agree with your dad, flour >>>>> corn.

lori said...

Kelly said...

Really? I prefer my tacos with the corn-based shells... hmmmm maybe I should try flour tortillas again.

No(dot dot)el said...

Ahhh I love it! Your dad is right, that is a perfectly acceptable blog topic. I bet he's so glad you are home.

Bri Buzali said...
