Vamos a la {freakin} Playa!

Hey there!

I love the beach. The sand. It makes me swoon.

I was literally craving the sun today, like I crave chocolate sometimes every day. When I finally got to lay down on my blanket and soak up some rays, the first song that happened:

Like you expected anything different.

The day at the beach included wave-riding, and me deciding that I’m going to buy a SUP paddle board (second link is the best. YOLO). You think I’m kidding. I have nowhere to use it, but I’m going to make it happen. Tomorrow, I am determined to get more tan.

The sun makes me hungry, so we went out to dinner. Obviously.

Tonight: Indian food! This place was a hit. We started with Pappadum with onion + mint chutneys.

This “bread” is so bomb. Made of lentils and toasted in a skillet (like a tortilla!), it’s both tasty and super-healthy. I loved this substitute for typical bread or chips. Will be making these at home.

For my entree, I chose the Jalfrezi with shrimp.

Padre got the same, but with salmon. He loved it. We all left with seriously full bellies.

We were too full for dessert, so we headed to a Big Band concert with Grandma and the family. It was at a local high school, reppin the Wildcats mascot. High School Musical throwback much??

Loved it. Afterwards, we needed some munchies.

Froyo happened and I’m not sorry. I’ve been eating so clean and sweating super dirty. Girl needed some treats. Time for bed! Paddle boarding tour is planned for tomorrow, and I’m super excited. Newbie over here.

there is nothing better than soaking up on the rays in the sand, with the ocean at your toesies. I’ve been craving it also & cannot wait till july 14 when my cravings will be satisfied in Mexico!

Indian food is an all-time favorite of mine! I would probably choose it over any other food any day. Naan = love!

LOVE paddle boarding! I actually own a SUP paddle board and use it when I’m at home on Lake Austin! It’s such a great workout and you feel like you’re walking on water!
