I went to my first blogger meet-up today!
I left my camera in the car, so I have no pictures, but the hike was really pretty. I probably would have been really tired if I went by myself, but I was so caught up in conversation that the hike flew by and I didn’t even notice how long we had hiked for! I pretty much never exercise with anybody, so it was especially nice to have people to talk to. I really enjoyed meeting these ladies! If you haven’t read their blogs- do it now!
I’d say the day was a success- I got to meet new people AND I drove to L.A. by myself with no major freak-outs! For the record, GPS on phones are not to be trusted. Mine told me to make a U-turn on the freeway and directed me to a dead-end street and told me it was the entrance to the canyon. I am thankful I arrived in one piece.
I never ate a proper lunch, so my sister and I went to Rutabegorz for dinner. Will I ever get sick of this place? Probably not.
I was craving warm, cheesy foods. What’s new? I think cheese and I have made peace. It’s not that it hurts my stomach- I just get a weird feeling after I eat it. I get the same feeling when I ride my bike outside. Uh, no one ever accused me of being normal.
We started out with the 40 cent dip- red pepper and corn relish.
Roasted red peppers, yellow corn, onion, mayo, cheese, cilantro, and spicy spices. It was good, but it was no pumpkin hummus 🙂
I also got a cheese quesadilla…
and a cup of vegetarian chili. The chili was really good- it had soy protein chunks or something in it. Hearty and delicious 🙂
I never really get dessert in restaurants, because it’s so expensive and I have ice cream at home. But, the waitress forgot about us and felt so guilty she offered us a free dessert! We went with the brownie sundae.
I had no idea it would be this big- and you know we finished it! I totally handled that whipped cream. It was glorious. Would you believe me if I told you that I was not even full after this meal and just had a snack? Because it’s the truth.
Speaking of sisters, Kristen would like to thank you for your encouragement regarding her half marathon plans! She is still nervous, but I’m pretty sure she’s going to do it. For anyone that asked- we are indeed twins. Identical, in fact!
I’m off to bed and maybe do a bit of stretching. Just cause I didn’t notice those hills during the hike didn’t mean my glutes didn’t. I’m already starting to feel sore!
