I do believe I have redeemed myself.
Not only did I drive down to Sedona to hike and eat a ginormous salad at the pool with Lori, but I also brought her some beef jerky. If she didn’t like it, she was nice enough to not tell me, and for that I can say Lori, you and I will get along just fine.
Lie to my face Tell me my food is good even if you don’t like it and I will love you forever.
We hiked for about an hour, on the beautiful Brins Mesa trail, with her sister and a friend of their family. I mocked her for wanting to see the vortices (I’m a cynical scientist, remember) and she still put up with me the rest of the day.
The hike was great, but clearly the company was even better.
I didn’t take any photos, but Lori did, so maybe I can cajole some out of her at a later date. Or maybe you’ll just have to trust me.
I didn’t take this picture. Thanks to whomever did.
Given that we are both a *wee bit* obsessed with veggies and salads, it wasn’t hard for us to decide on the local natural foods store’s salad bar for lunch. Though our salads didn’t look anything alike, we ended up spending almost the exact same amount as one another.
How much? Too much. But 1 1/3 pounds of veggies don’t come cheap. Nor should they. Money and morning well spent.
In between hiking and eating, and whilst gossiping, we did something that all self-respecting women on vacation (well, she’s on vacation, I’m just an enabler) do.
And because we’re so cute, we got matching tank tops. That we are both going to be wearing when we hike into the canyon in a couple days. Prepare yourself for those pictures, because I swear I am going to remember to take pictures.
And Kelly will be in those pictures too. Because why?
Because she is going to be here TONIGHT!!!!
With all this excitement, I could swear it is Friday today.
If only I had the day of the week underwear that I used to have in elementary school to remind me what day of the week it was. (Not that I ever wore them on the correct day of the week ever, but I think you are picking up what I’m putting down. Right? )
Do they make those for adults? Because I kind of want a pair now. Or I guess I should say I want 7 pairs now.
I’ve been feeling kind of burnt out on weight lifting and cardio lately, so a couple days ago, I decided to pop my old boyfriend into the old DVD player. He kicked my ass.
I remember why we broke up now. You have that “tough love” thing down, yes. But me? I’m kind of a sissy. Still, I won’t go out without a fight, so I am digging deep. And even though your plyometrics DVD left me sweating and swearing (finished it without any breaks though, tough guy), I’m busting out the upper body weight training DVD in T-minus 20 minutes.
That should leave me nice and sore for my LAST DAY OF TEACHING HIGH SCHOOL today.
Did you have day of the week underwear? Did you wear them on the correct day? I think this is officially the weirdest question I’ve ever asked.
Have you met up with any blogger friends? Lori is only the third blogger I’ve met in real life, and like Kelly and Charlotte, I felt like I’d known them forever. And after meeting her, I know that we are going to be friends, even if one of stops blogging.
