Girls Weekend & Jawbreaker Fun

Posted in just for kicks, vacay by krisyee on October 12, 2009

This weekend I headed down to Greenfield which is about 2 hours south of San Francisco. My friend Regina and I decided to visit our friend Steph who recently moved in with her fiance down there. On Saturday we drove down another hour and half away to San Luis Obispo and Pismo beach for some good eats.

If you like clam chowder bread bowls I suggest you try Splash Cafe. I was introduced to this place a few years ago by my girl Augs who went to school @ Cal Poly SLO. Every time we went to visit her it was a must to eat here and as you can see, having a line around the corner is a norm at this place. But for their clam chowder and butter toasted bread bowls, it’s worth the wait.

Call us crazy, but we headed to a candy store around the corner where we spontaneously decided to have a jawbreaker contest. You know those fat jawbreakers that they sell but don’t understand how people eat them? Well, we tried to see who could get to the deepest layer.

After about 15 minutes…

While we worked on our project we headed down to Grover Beach. One of the only beaches in California that you’re allowed to drive on. It’s $5 for a day pass but you can pay more and camp on the beach too.

I had my car and I didn’t want to get stuck in the sand so we didn’t drive to far. If you drive further down the beach there are sand dunes where you can go ATVing. Here’s a pic of the dunes from one of my past trips.

We decided to just chill on the beach and suck on our jawbreakers. Lol

Over an hour of our contest I think we finally decided to stop. As you can see, Reg (right), somehow made almost a perfect circle, Steph (middle) was a little behind and just got to the blue, and I (left) was around the same layer as Reg but we just decided she won because of how she made such a perfect circle. Haha Good sober fun!

After that we headed to downtown San Luis Obispo where we walked around and decided to watch Couples Retreat. For dinner we hit up Firestone Grill. Yummy tri tip sandwiches and may even be better than Buckhorns. There’s always a line at this place too.

Yesterday on the way home, Reg and I decided to stop in San Jose to grab some Pinkberry at Santana Row. I think the only reason why I like Pinkberry  more is because it’s a little sweeter and I loooove the chocolate shavings. Haha

All in all it was a relaxing and fun weekend. Thanks Steph for letting us stay at your place!

Posted in food, fun, vacay by krisyee on June 7, 2009

Hawaii day 3 was awesome.

First off we headed to Boots & Kimo’s, a breakfast joint suggested by Rach. DEEEEELICIOUS. Be prepared to wait over an hour for it…even if you order it to go. But damn, it’s well worth it.

Hawaii Day Recap-Day 1

Posted in food, vacay by krisyee on June 4, 2009

Ok, so I didn’t end up posting the rest of the trip, but I was a little occupied. Sorry.

*Just a warning…I’m probably going to post HELLA pictures.

So a recap of day 1…

Got in around 11am…headed to Ala Moana mall after dropping off our luggage @ Lexer’s. And first thing first…FOOD. We were starving so we hit up Zippy’s.

We walked around the mall and beach for over 2 hours waiting for Lex to get off work…so we decided to go to MaiTai’s for happy hour. Delicious drinks and appetizers.

Hawaii Day 1

Posted in vacay by krisyee on May 28, 2009

WOOHOO! Hawaii Day 1 was awesome. We got into Oahu around 11am yesterday and the first thing we did was head to our friend Lexer’s apartment to drop off our luggage. After that we headed out to Ala Moana Mall. Grabbed some Zippys and walked around. We had to wait for Lex to get off work, so we ended up at MaiTai for happy hour. Their Starburst drink was DELICIOUS…and I swear they had the best popcorn shrimp and lychee martini I’ve ever had. Haha After a couple drinks, Lex was gonna make us hike Diamond Head but its was about 5:30pm and everyone had to be down by 6pm. Sooooo…we hiked KoKo Head instead. That hike was bananas! Especially for a couple of us that HAVE NOT worked out in awhile! Lol But we made it to the top!

*I don’t have my cable or memory card reader with me…so camera phone images will have to do.

I promise I’ll have more pictures when I get back!

After we showered we headed to Side Street Inn to get some fried rice, chicken wings, and pork chops. YUM. Then we went to D & B’s. I must say…D & B’s over here is CRAZY. It was a little toooo crackin for me…but after a few shots and grabbing a pool table it was all good. We also ran into Liz, Syl, and Marie there. They’re on vacay here too!

Right now we’re just waiting for the rest of the crew to get here.

Stay tuuuuuned.
