Carley got in Thursday late night – we spent the evening hours giggling and catching up. On Friday morning, we woke super early to catch Katie’s favorite Orange Theory class at 6:45 with Jesse. I can see the attraction, he was HILARIOUS. Think Will & Grace + muscles + fabulous smile + high-energy fitness. It was somewhere between the second circuit and the side planks when Carley leaned over and said something along the lines of, “You two are insane for liking this.” Needless to say, we were extremely sweaty, spent and ready for some refueling.
Breakfast took place at Daily Dose. We settled on Micheladas. Served as a iced glass of lime juice, a Mexican beer, and a small carafe of tomato juice. Kind of like a beer-garita or sorts. We weren’t entirely impressed. Decisions couldn’t be made on what to order, as everything looked good in our deliriously hungry and sore state of mind, so we decided to share the Banana Bread French Toast, The Hangover Sandwich and the Breakfast Nachos. All of which were delicious and most of which we brought home as leftovers.
After our refuel session, we grabbed a few supplies at Costco. A weekend with your girlfriends requires a few staples. For example, large glass bottles of vodka. The one on the right was purchased, we plan to empty it.
As we walked around Carley began to feel the muscle burn that Orange Theory brings. She spent a bit of time lounging in agony. At Costco… and at home.
We hightailed it home, changed into swimsuits, made a cocktail and beelined for the pool. There wasn’t any laying in the sun, there was strictly underwater lounging… it was hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk. Later into the evening, Scott treated us to Oregano’s. We needed to get out of the apartment as the AC isn’t working properly and we were going slightly stir-crazy. It worked out well because a trip to Arizona is.not.complete without dining at Oregano’s. We shared the Vino Bambino salad (UNREAL) – and Uncle Ray’s Sausage & ‘Shrooms pizza. Entire confection. Totally satisfied.
After dinner, it was time to doodle in Paper by FiftyThree and laugh at the good fortune of having close friends.
