Busy lives…we all have them, so finally this weekend my gf and I were able to take time out for a girl’s day! We’re fortunate that we live in the Ozarks, so we can enjoy the beauty of the area and be able to do a little shopping. Shopping we did….if you like outlet malls there are several in Branson and my fave is Tanger (the orange roof one). Although I actually didn’t go to any of them, but hit up an old faithful…TJMaxx.
Food was an important part of our day, so we headed down to the Branson Landing to Cantina Laredo. I highly recommend it. If you ever have an opportunity to have one of the tequila soaked pineapple slices…do! They will rock your world and give you a buzz at the same time. Every time I dine there it’s a delicious meal so try whatever makes your mouth water. This time round I had the chicken enchiladas with mole sauce. I’m a sucker for anything mole. The steamed zucchini seemed a little strange with it, but I’m all about being healthy so I ate it. I had the Cabo Flip margarita and it was delicious. A tequila shot was poured right into half a lime that was floating on top of the drink. Presentation was nice! My friend had the La Bandera which looked beautiful and tasted good too.
While we were sitting on the patio the water feature started shooting fire which was startling at first. It was more entertaining when I realized I wasn’t going to need to take cover.
After our luncheon we were off to ‘The Runaway Mountain Coaster‘. We had the best time and this was our first experience riding one of these things. The mountain coaster park just opened in the last month, so it has been on my list of things to try since I first heard about it. It lived up to all my expectations, and I plan to go again when my son is visiting. The price seemed reasonable to me $15. You will need to sign a waiver….that would be for those folks that don’t use a brake. Oh…we were those folks!
