Best Mexican in town!

Harper and I went on a little road trip to Columbia yesterday. He was such an angel, he slept the entire trip there and the entire drive home. We had a wonderful time catching up with college friends. And we stopped by Brooke's mamas house to visit with the Jackson's and Brice. Harper smiled and giggled the entire visit. Brooke and Brice hadn't seen Harper since he was a few days old so it was fun to show them how much he has grown.

Then we came back to town and met up with Erik for dinner. We used one of the amazing coupons I had (see yesterday's post) and tried our luck at a new Mexican restaurant in Greer. Boy were we impressed. We went to:

Barroco Mexican Bistro  
906 West Poinsett Street, Greer, SC 29650-1455
(864) 469-6923 ‎

It was the best Mexican restaurant I have been to in South Carolina. Yes, it was really that good!!! Everything is homemade... their salsa, pico, even Sangria. And it was DELICIOUS!! So good that I splurged and got two glasses of sangria. I had chicken and steak fajitas and Erik had stuffed poblanos. Then we ended our meal with fried ice cream. Talk about fantastic!! It was so good that we are actually going to see if Erik's parents want to meet us there next week for dinner (Erik's dad loves Mexican.)

If you live in the Upstate, you need to go HERE! Use the coupon code CLEARANCE for 80% off, you will get a $25 gift certificate for $2, and have dinner at Barroco. I am sure you will be impressed.

Another one of my favorite discount websites is Gilt. This website has amazing discounts on designer items. Right now they have Diesel jeans for sale. So if anyone is looking for a nice pair of jeans, check it out. The pair of Diesel jeans below are on sale for $108. They are normally $250.

Gilt also has a wonderful selection of children's items! They have this adorable set for $17! (What a great baby shower gift!) 

This elephant blankie for $15.00. It is a Blankie and rattle, how sweet!

And these ADORABLE booties for $21.00. Harper would look so cute in these! 

And they also have a seriously amazing selection of woman's apparel and accessories but I am not going to that section of the website right now... I would end up broke! 

If you want to check out Gilt, you can get a free membership by clicking this LINK and signing up! Trust me, you will LOVE it! 

Now I am off to get ready for NYE!! Hope you all have a wonderful New Year's!
