Be jealous

I was lucky enough to have a basically free Saturday this past weekend, leaving me free to meet up with a friend for lunch. Well, as it turns out, I wasn't really free; apparently the conversation I had with my husband about it was pretty much in my mind. Um...oops? But by the time I'd realized this, plans had been set and who am I to spoil someone's excitement about meeting me before they meet me and I spoil it in person? :)

J had an 8:00 soccer game, so I got up early to get in 9 miles before kickoff. I had a little trouble getting out of bed, though, so my 9 ended up being 5.5. Oh well. We grabbed breakfast, I showered, and then I headed 2.5 hours south for lunch. 

My mystery date? The Pensive Pumpkin herself...and her charming husband! We had a fantastic BBQ lunch and talked for...ummm...3 hours or so? I'm pretty sure the waitstaff were considering charging us rent. 

For a while we were afraid we might actually be the same person, but it turned out there are a couple notable differences...one of which being my serious lack of self-protection skills. It was a great time. We could definitely hang out together any time. Pretty sure if we hiked the PCT together we'd have a blast.

  3. Always so awesome. Drop my a text or email or FB or something to let me know your plan of attack for next weekend. So stoked to break out of prison with you! I even watched "Prison Break" (TV Show on Netflix) a little this weekend. :)

  11. Oh sure, you'll drive 5 hours for lunch with PP but won't drive 30 hours for me? Whatever.

    Just remember to take the cooler when you and PP hike PTC!
