So, while I am laying here with these on…
I thought I’d write about my AMAZING California trip. My bestie, Tracy (aka Mofo), bought me a ticket to come visit her in San Luis Obispo, CA. She actually lives in a vacation destination. I’ve been so looking forward to this trip and it truly delivered. My other bestie since 4th grade coincidentally lives in SLO, also! And another childhood bestie lives in San Diego so she drove up to spend the weekend.
I promised myself not to let my weight and poor body image ruin my trip and I mostly did that. I was very proud of myself. ♥️
I arrived Thursday night late and we went almost directly to bed. And then like two teenage girls Tracy and I texted each other from our respective beds for about an hour. Hahahah.
On Friday morning Tracy had to work (she works from her home), which was good because I could have a slow relaxing morning. She has two little boys whom I got to spend time with before they were off to school. Her oldest is Miles and her youngest is my godson, Ian. I also fell in love with her cat, Casey Jones.
For lunch, Tracy and I went to a place appropriately called, Tasty. I had the best brussels sprouts of my life there.
Friday night we had some wine on Tracy’s back porch and then we went out to dinner and to have some drinks. The restaurant had a beautiful section for outdoor seating and we enjoyed a delicious dinner and yummy drinks.
Her husband Dane was a real sport, giving us door drop off service and fetching our drinks!!
Saturday morning Tracy made us French toast and eggs and sausage. It was scrumptious!! Then it was time for us girls to head out to our GNO (girls’ night out). Megan treated us to a hotel that was right on the ocean. It was so beautiful. It was a row of hotels with a path along the ocean in front of all of them. The hotels has pools and restaurants with outdoor seating with the most amazing view. We started with drinks and lunch at one of those places. Then we checked into our hotel. Next we found a fire pit spot out on that path in front of the ocean and proceeded to spend the next 3-4 hours drinking wine, chatting, LAUGHING, and taking in the view. It was truly one of the best parts of the trip. I love these girls so much.
Next we got ready and went to dinner and another amazing place with a beautiful view. And we joke about my friend Tracy having the best luck, so in true Tracy fashion we got a table right by the window!
And the food was amazing. My favorite was their lobster Mac appetizer. It was to die for.
We got back to the hotel and played Cards Against Humanity and then went to sleep by about 11:30. #thisis43
Sunday morning we had breakfast at our hotel then we checked out and went to a winery called Laetitia and did a wine tasting. Super fun and super beautiful!!!
Molly had to leave after that to make the long drive back to San Diego, and Megan, Tracy and I went to a much smaller, but still beautiful winery called Kelsey. They had some live music so we bought a bottle of Rose and hung out. It was perfect.
The band even played Indigo Girls which is a fav of my group of friends. It was a magical weekend and we were sure grateful to have this time together and made the most of it!!
Then we went and had some lunch at a brewery
On Monday we had lunch with Megan and then shopped around SLO and had a cocktail at a local bar. Then we picked up Miles from school and Tracy and Dane made dinner, and we all hung out, and laughed and chatted.
And Tracy was Martha Stewart with the apps…
Oh, did I forget to mention the view from Tracy’s house? It’s amazing.
I was so sad to leave. These girls are so good for my soul. So much positive energy.
But I was happy to see my BUG and my honey bunny!
