Hey! Lets go on a weekend road trip!?
Night 1: we got to Chad and Kylie's 10pmish, we were greated with fresh warm choc. chip cookies. Chad justed started whipn' up all kinds of yummies: fresh pineapple, guac and orange sorbet.
We were not good at taking pictures but here are a few:
We started the day right with a healthy breakfast... I ate the world's largest omelette well... maybe 1/4th of it.
Tyler is getting cuter and cuter every time I see him.
Kylie had a baby shower at 1, I am really happy we invited ourselves. We rushed to get pedis before the shower, I cant believe I haven't had one since my wedding!
Kylie has great friends! The shower was at this beautiful house and she got a lot of great stuff. Our present was the best. Kylie looked beautiful in the cutest brown dress, check out her blog.
We did manage to get a picture of a $150 fruit basket... looks nice right?!
After the shower Rubes and I went to Mission Beach for ice-cream, we watched these roller/dancer/skater guys for a while. It was great.
After the beach we went downtown to the mall. We checked out Steve and Barry's so we could support SJP and her line, Bitten, unfortunately I didnt like anything. We met up with Joel P West for dinner at an amazing thai rest. It was the best thai food I have ever had... I ordered the basic stuff I get at Tarntip... I had no idea that it could taste better than my local favorite!
After din din we went to this loft that Joel and his friends are using for art/music/work stuff. It was sooooo cool and huge, right by the Padres Stadium. I guess some really rich lady owns it and is letting them use it for free, I'd live there if I could.
Day 2: Ruby and I met Joel at his house to cook breakfast. We walked to the store to get vegan ingredients and spent a few hours with our good-old-friend. I decided I really like mixing tofu in my potatoes o'brien, it is a great egg substitute. It was fun to see JW, its been a long time.
On our way home we ditched the Zoo idea so that we could relax. We found an oriental store and got the proper ingredients to make Chad's favorite: Lumpia
Nap time, then ice-cream time. The delicious cream was made by a very nice mexican man. He patted my head and he has had his shop for years! He makes everything homemade with fresh ingredients. I had banana ice-cream, it was the best ice-cream I have every had.
It is almost midnight. Ruby and I took tomorrow morning off so Im excited to sleep in.
Thanks Chad and Kylie for hosting us! We had a great time in your city. You're the best!
