A new life lesson

Hi friends!

I spent the day bumming around Monterey.  It was a gorgeous day to be at the beach.



I learned a new life lesson-if we’re going to live by the beach, I need to keep a pair of flip flops with me at all times.  I am almost positive I took half of the beach home with me.  I mean it’s not necessarily a bad thing but you know.


One of my favorite things to do is hop in the car to explore.  I love getting lost and finding cool stuff like this lake/inlet with a really cool dirt path around it.  I can’t wait to run around it!


Oh and I found Trader Joe’s so now my life if pretty much complete. 

I spent the afternoon hanging out at with Michele


She has ran 6 marathons and 23 half marathons.  Um, holy amazing!

I already know we are going to be good friends because she suggested we meet at Starbucks and we talked about running, life, our love of baking and races for 2 hours and didn’t even realize it was 2 hours later.

I came home and hung out with Bam outside for awhile.  Mr. Energy missed me so we played for a bit and then Mike called to say he was on his way home from work early!!  Our favorite part of the day is when he comes home in case you were wondering.  Winking smile

We got dressed and went out for dinner at Famous Dave’s.


Griselda was our server and she freaking rocked!!  This girl can put up with Mike so that automatically makes her uber cool. 


Everything sounded delicious, we had a hard time deciding so we ordered it all. 


Best decision ever.

What was the best life decision you recently made?

What is your favorite thing to do at the beach?

Lay in the warm sand, stare at the waves, find an awesome running trail & go boogie boarding.

    Even though we’re 2 hours from the coast our trunk is stocked with beach towels & flip flops! We have learned that on days we drive wherever the wind takes us, it normally takes us to the beach!

  2. Hmm, best decision ever? From marrying my husband, staying home with my kids, and drinking my way through coffee without the guilt. Those are some pretty awesome decisions.

    Before Shark week, I loved paddling out in the ocean with my boogie board. But now I refuse to be a Shark snack…so laying out is the next best thing. Ha!

    Best life decision? Marrying my husband hands down. He has put up with so much and I don’t know where I’d be without him.

    I just love to lay out and enjoy the beach. I like swimming in the ocean as well just for short amounts of time 🙂

  4. Favorite thing to do at the beach is definitely boogie boarding!

  5. Getting my personal training certification- it was difficult, but totally worth it to do what you love! You always have great pictures of your scenery!

  6. Favorite thing to do at the beach – lay on a lounge chair soaking up the sun!!!
