TDP 4 Life


Rain rain rain! Nothing but rain here! Sadly.


We did breakfast at the hotel since it was included with the boy’s stay and we are all for taking advantage of free food. I loaded up!


Oatmeal + brown sugar + raisens




Home fries + tabasco


Tea and OJ


Fruit + 2 HB Eggs


I only ate like 2 pieces of that fruit. I don’t like the green melon.

Jodus got pancakes, scrambled eggs with cheese, sausage, and home fries. Breakfast of champions!

The hotel is right basically on a golf course so we had a decent view while we dined.


We stayed awhile and chatted because we knew the cleaning crew was in our abode. Can I please get a daily maid service for my house? I think I need it.


After breakfast, we went to the room and hung out. I did some interneting. He did some TVing. Then we settled in for a movie since it was raining and I’m cranky in the rain.

We watched Zombieland, at the behest of Jodus’ kid brother.

I fell asleep halfway through. And stayed asleep while the boy started lunch.

I guess it was just that good of a movie!

Jodus had some food that he had bought to make in the room (to save money on going out) and needed to use it up a bit before he leaves next Friday. So he whipped up a mock Chicken Parmesan.


He semi-poached the chicken breasts in a skillet, sprinkled with garlic pepper seasoning then added a jar of sauce and topped with an Italian cheese mix.


And steamed some veggies topped with lemon pepper on the side! Not too shabby for a little hotel lunch, hu!

I only ate about half of my chicken but all the noodles! I was really proud that he had bought whole wheat pasta noodles, 2% cheese, and other responsible food items (plus beer!).


Just as we were finishing up our (late) lunch, my dear friend Claudia called to inform me that they were under an hour away! YIPEE! She willingly made the ~2hr trek up to see me and I am soooo happy!


Claudia and James got married in November in VEGAS! Congrats, bb!

Claudia and I actually “met” a couple of years ago on The Daily Plate, tracking calories and being scandalous. And then we fell in lurve!


We hung out at the hotel for a couple of hours just sitting around… drinking… chatting. I had some of this wine:


3 glasses actually. When in California, right?

Then Greg, also from The Daily Plate, showed up to cause some trouble!


Lordy he’s tall!

After a bit more schmoozing, we headed out to dinner at Cabos.


Naturally, we started with margarita’s.


And chips and salsa.


And freshly made guacamole.

I ordered the Camarones A La Diabla… HOT!


And boy was it HOT!


It was so good!

Claudia annihilated a burrito.


James went white and got a burger.


The boys went with burritos as well.

We headed back to the room for… um… more drinking. I had 2 glasses of champagne.


Between the 5 of us, we went through 3 bottles of wine, a bottle of champagne, two 12 packs of beer.

Which lead to drunk photo shoot.

All in all, we had a great night! Claud and James ended up crashing on the pull-out. 😀
