Trust me, you don’t want to be my BFF

While we waited for my BFF R to drive up, Mike + I went to Rosine’s for breakfast.  We’ve heard so many great things about this joint and everyone is right.  If you’re ever in the Monterey area, go here. 

I had the Denver Omelet minus the onions with potatoes.

We walked off our food babies downtown and popped into a shoe store where I fell in love with these Ariat cowboy boots.  I think they would perfectly compliment my .38 special that I hope comes back from the shop soon.

As soon as R arrived, we headed to the beach.  Naturally I saw a Starbucks on the way and asked if she wanted to stop, which was a dumb question because we are practically twins.  Since I am an awesome BFF I forgot my wallet at home and informed her of this as we were walking in.  Now I know you all want to be my BFF.  No?

But hey, she got an extra gold star so that has to count for something.

We talked about life, politics, birds stealing peoples food, wine, dinner, the usual while watching the waves come in.

When we finally peeled ourselves out of the sand, we went for a little hike before dinner.

The view was pretty schweet.

I came home to an awesome mail day!!  Love me some Pro Compression gear.

Post beach bumming I slipped on a pair of sleeves + sipped wine while R made her famous enchiladas for dinner.  I am a huge fan of their sleeves because I can wear my favorite running socks and easily slip on flip flops post run while still compressing.

I woke up this morning and R told me she ordered a pair of the Shamrock socks + low trainers after seeing my new threads with coupon code CLOVER.  Girlfren makes great life decisions. 

Wine lovers, Fifty Shades of Grey chardonnay get’s 2 thumbs up from us girls.  If you dig a crisp + clean chard, this one’s for you.

I despise cooking, but I love watching others cook.  Figures, right?

I’ve had her enchiladas back home before we moved and raved about them.  Her secret ingredient is a container of Johnson’s Brick Chili found in the frozen section mixed with a can of red enchilada sauce.  It is made with all things good in life.

R wants to know what your favorite Mexican dish is?

What was the last time you goofed up + you’re BFF had to pick up the slack?

Compression friends, do you prefer socks or sleeves?

  1. Yum!!!! You made me hungry!!! Lol :D, well growing up in Mexico City every Sunday after church my grandpa would take me to a butchers place where they would sell these ” Gorditas con puerco” I don’t know how to explain it but it had really good pork in it lol sadly there’s no such thing in Seattle :(. SO I make red rice and yellow mole with chicken and let it cook for at least 3 hours until the chicken falls apart from the bones, then I make these corn ( they are made of tamale stuff) dumplings and add them to my mole, the dumplings remind me of the Gorditas and even though is not pork (pork hurts my belly …IBS I tell you) the chicken and the mole taste close lol.
    My BFF usually picks up the slack quite often :p, I haven’t tried the socks or the sleeves so I couldn’t tell you .

  2. I prefer socks but I wear sleeves as well! They are both great – you can’t go wrong!

    I love white wine and this one looks delicious! You are making me want to pull out my wine stash tonight… tempting!

  3. Since I just finished some homemade chorizo con huevos, that’s today’s fav. Honestly though, I could eat Mexican every day,
    Haven’t forgotten my wallet in a while, but when I did she got to but me am amazing spicy broccoli sandwich. Get the SBUX app and you’ll never be without again – and you’ll get your stars!
    Love socks but my beefy calves make sizing tough so far. Sleeves may be the fix!

    • The Starbucks app is the best!! If I just going on a coffee run, I don’t even take my wallet. If I ever get pulled over I’m gonna have some ‘splaining to do. 😉

  4. Hello, can you please explain exactly what these socks do?? I’ve read about them and have considered buying some but they are spendy! And honestly I feel like I’m not ” a big time runner” and I don’t want to look like I’m trying to be with the cool socks on! I know that sounds weird. I’ve ran 3 half marathons and am training for 2 more that I will be running in May. If these socks really make a difference then I think I want to try them….I ran 9 miles today and I’m already sore 🙁 please tell me your opinion 😉 thanks so much!!

  5. At our favorite local Mexican joint, I always get the taco/enchiladas platter with all rice and no beans. Their spanish rice is amazballs! So good.

    The last time I dropped the ball and my bestie had to pick up the slack was when we went out to dinner on double dates and my card was denied. She paid for Hubbs and I’s meal with no complaints. I paid her back of course. But I did learn that if you want your debit card to work, you actually have to put your pay check into the bank. Funny how that works.

    I’m normally a compression sock wearer and only after runs. But I just ordered a pair of calf sleeves to try out with my regular running socks. I find that compression socks just don’t have the padding on the bottom of the foot that I need for my runs. I have no padding on the bottoms of my feet and need super squishy socks especially on long runs otherwise it feels like running barefoot on rocks for and hour or two. Ouch.

    • Ha that is something Mike + I would do!
      I agree, with wearing compression socks post run. The new low trainers have a bit of padding which I liked on my run today so you might want to check those out. Since I am a run nerd, please let me know how you like the sleeves vs socks.

  6. i love me some carne asada. i could eat that at least once a week.

    i’m usually the one pickin up the slack for my bestie, but she is totally worth it.

    i prefer socks to sleeves and it never occured to me to wear them with flip flops. i’m gonna give that a try!

  7. those polka dot sleeves are so cute!! <3 I tend to wear the socks while running, and the sleeves while wearing flip flops.

    had some enchiladas the other week. I keep forgetting how much I love em. especially when mom makes them 😉
