St. Patty's Day, Padres, and Traveling Love Bugs

Tuesday, March 25, 2014

I haven't been writing much lately because there's nothing too out of the ordinary happening lately. I did have an awesome St. Patrick's Day filled with Lindsay Love and Leslie Boo, meeting new friends, a guy with this bike who was unfortunately too drunk to ride it but fortunately sober enough to realize this fact, sneaking Fireball on the streets, and entertaining live music at the Riverside Street Party.  

I've enjoyed some awesome balcony chilling in Leslie's lovely, high-rise apartment, with an unbelievable view, had some super silly, girly dance parties (for the neighbors to luckily see), hot tub hoppin with a cute boy, and front porch chillin. I was also blessed with a quick visit from Amy and her boo the other weekend.  

Last weekend, I had a great time with the padres coming to visit. We biked over to lunch at Beachside Seafood for a surprisingly delicious meal. We enjoyed the beautiful weather on the beach, laid out discussing the ridiculousness of and our amazement with dinosaurs, caveman, and life, and played frisbee with a cute Toddler Stranger. I made a homemade, paleo (of course) dinner with berry glazed chicken, sweet potatoes and brussel sprouts and banana bread crumb cake for dessert. The chicken was one of the best chicken recipes I've tried and the banana bread was one of the best paleo baked goods I've made so far.

Afterwards, we met up with Matt for him to eat, and we continued to eat some bomb chips and queso, fruity cocktails, and then dessert! We were going from restaurant to restaurant for the live music and felt we had to order something while we were there. So much for staying healthy after that paleo feast.  

The next day was quite nice as well. We'd planned to take a long biking extravaganza, but due to the mighty wind and brisk air, Mom and Dad decided to just drive to meet me at Lillie's Coffee Shop after my yoga class. So we shopped around at the antique store and the Bookmark which I just love because of the sweet little ladies working there. 

We unfortunately had to spend an hour+ at the AT&T store due to the tragic outcome of a football catch and a huge puddle that I somehow missed that left me phone and shoeless. Not that shoeless is uncommon. But luckily it all worked out and I'm obviously back in business and blogging on this crazy piece of technology! ...That I will not be taking the case off of... Even if I've "been so good with not dropping it," or bringing it in my pocket during football games with the kiddos. Or anything else near water. 

We finished the day with some of the most delicious pizza ever at Melllow. It was so nice having them up. Working at Daniel + several recent memories with the padres has really made me realize how fortunate I am to have them and my family. 

Random notes: going out solo in Europe is just so much more romantic than going out solo in Jax Beach. When traveling or living somewhere new, you're just like an independent, brave, wanderer... Add in the chances of meeting a beautiful foreign rugby player or musician and it's a story for a novel. Here, you take on more of a sleezey, loner look with chances of meeting crazy conspiracists with no accents. Letdown.  

Don't read Paris Letters unless you wanna have your emotions and mind running completely wild and a huge urge to drop everything and move to Europe. Now I'm over here dreaming and scheming for a European adventure and romance. As if I didn't have the travel bug and love sickness enough. It's the first time I've ever hoped for a bad ending just so that urge might at least subside a little bit. For now, I'm beginning my plan. 
Donations are definitely welcome. 
My next post might and should actually be my post to keep me accountable for my plans. They're handwritten now. Next up, The Blog. Stay tuned.
