Santa Monica Part 2

Who starts a post with pictures of feet?


I just had to show you because I am pretty excited about my glittery, purple toes. Pedicures are an absolute mandatory activity on girls trips. Added bonus was that a manicure and pedicure was only $20! That is just crazy.

After we got back to the hotel we changed back into our normal people clothes and dug into our leftovers from the night before. I am telling you, cold linguine is pretty darn good especially when eaten with no utensils.


We were then ready to head out and walk to dinner….ps I seriously love any city/area where you can walk everywhere. We went to a restaurant called Zengo which had Asian/Latin food, a combo I had never tried. I guess all the mixing of cuisines at restaurants is popular these days, I wouldn’t know considering I usually only eat out at Cafe Rio and Pizza Factory at home.


We got a bunch of things and shared them all. Lettuce wraps, duck tacos, fish tacos, beef noodles and the waiter accidentally brought out the most expensive steak on the menu and ended up giving it to us for free…score! The steak was by far my favorite.


We saved the best for last, the Santa Monica Pier. Picture from my instagram…let’s be friends: janaenia is my username.


There was music going on at the end of the pier and we had quite the little dance party. Maybe I will make a vlog to reenact some of our favorite dance moves.


No joke, this was my first time on a ferris wheel. It was huge and I was a little freaked out even though roller coasters don’t scare me and I have also been skydiving (with above girls). For some reason the stopping at the top really freaked me out.


Jess wasn’t freaked out at all and pretended she was Rose from Titanic. We held on tight to her.


Ice cream and funnel cakes (pretty much the same things as donuts) together? Thank you to whoever thought of this.


This was probably the most expensive funnel cake known to man because of the fact we added 12 toppings. Somehow we talked the funnel cake guy to keep adding more whipped cream and I will forever be thankful to him.


Gone in 120 seconds.


Note to table designers: I spill on my shirt enough as it is, the holes in your table not only made it possible for 4 ice cream and 3 caramel stains on my pants but those are also precious drops of heaven that went to waste.

Nothing feels better than a run after a few days…I am actually excited to wake up early and get moving! (weirdo)

Oh man everything looks so delicious and I’m with you about utensils- SO overrated ;)! My toenails are always painted- that’s what flip flop weather all year round does to ya! Can you believe I’ve never tried a funnel cake- clearly that needs to change asap! Best thing I ate this weekend was scones with jam :)!

I am seriously so jealous of your weather:) NEVER HAD FUNNEL CAKE?!?! That is it…get over here and I will buy you all the funnel cake you want!

Looks like you had so much fun!! I am not afraid of heights but Ferris Wheels (I think the slowness) scare me. My toenails are currently a shiny GREEN. Have a great start to your week!

Reply

I think it is your slowness…you are so right. Way to go on your 80 miles of awesome running this week, you are incredible!

LOVE how you’ve been skydiving!!

And double love how you look so incredibly happy with your girlfriends!!

I hate heights! I don’t even like going in the elevatorso I would never skydive or bungee jump.

I got a pedicure on Friday for my birthday. My toes are hot pink!

I had king crab legs and birthday cake over the weekend that were delicious!

I’m runeatplay on Instagram.

I hope you had the best birthday ever and I am so glad that you got a pedicure. CRAB LEGS…holy cow, I am seriously drooling now. That sounds amazing!

Reply

Looks like you had a fantastic time! I would love to visit Santa Monica. I live in Pittsburgh so it would be a big trip but it looks so worth it! I am freaked out by heights too but don’t mind ferris wheels. Oh and I am on instagram! Just got it a few weeks ago and love it. My username is phebelockyer :) hope you have a good run and a good Monday!

Reply

I think you totally should and on your way there come visit me in Utah:) AHHH can’t wait to find you on insta!

Reply

Janae, you have to see my toes! I have the exact same polish from my pedi Saturday. haha
Yes I am TERRIFIED of heights…
I had the best vegan raw nachos on Saturday, I know they sound crazy but they were beyond delicious.
Totally addicted to Instagram.

Reply

AHHHH WE ARE TWINNERS….great minds think alike. Now you have me craving nachos ha. Have an amazing day Lindsey!

I need a pedicure. I also love the no chip manicures, and if I figure out to include it in my finances, I neeed to have it done. I just joined a gym though, so I think my pretty nails have to go. :(

Reply

it was my bday weekend, so of course i had to get my nails done (pink!), and eat sushi and froyo! yum, the best! today is my actual birthday.. working half day and then hitting the trails for some trail running! can’t wait!

Reply

HAPPY BDAY TODAY JILL!!! I hope you are having the best day ever and that your trail run is a blast. Nails, sushi and froyo….that is exactly what I would choose for my bday weekend!

I went to a wedding at a resort on the Cape this weekend… there was a raw bar during the cocktail hour and I ate so many oysters, littlenecks, and mini lobster quiches that I wasn’t very hungry for the dinner! The cranberry pancakes I had for breakfast were pretty awesome too.

Reply

Oh my goodness, I am so jealous of all the delicious seafood you had…I would have filled up on that too. Cranberry pancakes? I have never heard of that…sounds incredible!

Reply

I’m not really afraid of heights and have been skydiving twice! Bungee jumping scares me some but if I were in the right mood I think I’d do it.

Ps-My first time on a ferris wheel was only a few years ago and it was a little scarier than I expected!

Reply

I’ve never been to Santa Monica but it looks like a fun place! I’ve neither skydived nor bungee jumped, but I think I’d be way more likely to sky dive… getting the cord wrapped around me when bouncing back up would totally freak me out!

Reply

Holy funnel cake! Glad you had a blast! :)

Reply

I would love to sky dive or bungee jump some day! My husband is afraid of heights, so I need to find a girlfriend to go with me!

I’ve never had a pedicure–I’m weirded out at the thought of people touching my feet. Plus, I run, so I have pretty ugly feet!

My husband and I ran the Cellcom Green Bay Marathon with myTEAM TRIUMPH yesterday, and after the race my parents treated us to Red Robin–our first burgers/fries in MONTHS! So delicious!

I’m seriously addicted to Instagram! (username: allisonpierce)

Ferris wheels freak me out!! I’m afraid of heights badly and the swaying of the ferris wheel cart makes me really nervous. But I’m fine with roller coasters, maybe because I’m super strapped into them. Who knows. Either way, you are a brave girl for going on one of those!!

I am in much need of a pedicure. I want to go summery and go ocean blue color or a bright pink.

Reply

Ferris wheels terrify me, too. I think it’s because you sit up there not moving for so long and it’s so slow. You have more time to be afraid than you do on a roller coaster.

Totally just followed you on instagram!

Reply

Jealous of your pedicure and delicious looking dessert. Yum! Pedicures are totally necessary for every girls weekend. I love being pampered. Best way to spend money in my opinion, ha! Glad you had a fabulous time!

Reply

What a fun night on the SM Pier! Those tables can be so annoying – they totally remi d me of middle school and weird patterns on the back of your legs…. Best thing I ate this weekend is a tough choice because I went up to Portland to visit my high school BFF and do rock n roll…. Hmmm… Maybe chicken wings from Pok Pok?

Reply

I’m not super afraid of heights but I think if I went bungee jumping I’d end up on one of those videos where the cord snaps! It freaks me out!
Sunday dinner of roasted chicken and vegetables was the best thing all weekend.
I love instagram! Follow me if you want tons of pics of my twins and nothing else! Haha! I’m ltut.

Reply

That is exactly how I feel, the cord would be bound to snap. I want to follow you on twitter, I love twin pictures!

Follow me at ltut :)

It’s funny that you mention skydiving because yesterday I went skydiving for the first time ever…oh my goodness it is the coolest thing I have ever done in my life!!!! I still have like a marathon high feeling from it minus the sore legs ;)

My toes are painted nude because I needed to paint them really fast before a date on Friday night and knew I would mess up and the nude color wouldn’t show up on my skin…sneaky sneaky! I ate three really good things this weekend–BBQ on Friday’s date, an awesome Jason’s Deli salad yesterday, and then popcorn with marshmallows and Raisinettes in it last night..mmmm! PS now I want a funnel cake!

Reply

KELSEY!!! Okay, that is beyond awesome that you went skydiving yesterday…it really is the coolest thing ever! JASON’S DELI salad is my absolute FAVORITE!

Reply

I’m so jealous of your girls trip! looks like such a blast!

I’m afraid of heights and hate going on the farris wheel. I’ve considered skydiving, but I’m pretty sure my heart would explode in my chest. def no bungee jumping.

Yes. Big Apple Red. My fave.

FroYo. So good! Birthday cake flavor with butterfinger mixed in.

Yes! Finally! they finally got it for droid a few months ago. i’m def going to add you now! in case you want to stalk back I’m idkmybffjes

i’m terrified of heights…I can do roller coasters bc they go fast and I close my eyes but a ferris wheel is like torture…going up that high slowly, yeah i dont think so. couldnt pay me to get on one!

i got my first pedicure in a LONG time over the weekend. its a deep violet, i love it! (and wow, i forgot how good pedicures feel)

most delicious thing i ate this weekend was the jalepeno burgers we had for dinner last night!

Reply

Such a FUN girls’ trip!!! I’m jealous!

I am somewhat afraid of heights; however, I have to conquer that fear w/ all my adventure races since scaling 30-50 foot walls is mandatory!! I have never gone sky diving or bungee jumping.
My toenails are hot pink w/ silver sparkles/glitters. Always.
I love Instagram!! My puppies are featured on it weekly!

Reply

Brownies were good this weekend. Toes are dark red but getting ready to change it to pink.

I don’t “love” heights but I definitely don’t hate them. One of the things on my bucket list is to go skydiving- in Hawaii no less!!
My toenails are painted red :)
The yummiest thing I ate was some honey barbeque pulled pork…. so good.
and yes! I’m on instagram when I have wifi for my itouch. haha

Reply

That is where I went skydiving and Brooke you HAVE to do it!!! YUM, now I need some bbq pulled pork!

Reply

Cute toes!! I had mine done before I went on vacation (the poor girl had no idea what she was getting herself into doing a pedicure on a runner!) I had them painted dark sparkly teal :)

The yummiest thing I ate all weekend has to be strawberry gelato in Italy :) I could move there in a second!!

Reply

In Italy!!!!! I am so so jealous! Ha, I always feel bad when they see my running feet!

Reply

I’m still super jealous that you were right here and I didn’t get to meet you. Next time I am forcing you to hang out with me :)

Reply

Next time I am forcing you to hang out with me and get funnel cakes! Seriously next time we are playing!

Reply

Toes are a silvery-blue.

Most delicious thing this weekend was red velvet cake. However the fruit is getting more and more delicious by the approaching summer season so had some great grapes, watermelon, and blueberries.

I hope you had a very happy run this morning.

Reply

Silvery-blue sounds so cute. Seriously, fruit is so incredible…I could eat it all day long! I hope you had a happy run too this morning. PS SUMMER IS ALMOST HERE. You are coming to Utah on vacation right?

Reply

I tried to make an instagram and after 20 minutes of it telling every username possible (even the most random numbers and letters) was taken I gave up :(

That picture of you eating linguini makes your friends shirt look like an awesome Giant bow on your head. You should invest in those to match your baby girl ;)

Reply

HAHAHA You are so right…I do need to go get some of those:)

Reply

pretttty scared of heights.. i mean i’ll go to the top of places, but im jittery! sky diving i would never do but possibly bunjee jupming, if it were over water!

yesss, navy blue with glitter over it!

i had asparagus & goat cheese pizza this weekend. so good. but also had homemade bbq potato chips with this blue cheese bacon dip. anddd listen to this ridiculous dessert: banana gelato over a brownie with carmelized white chocoalte and peanuts. no words to describe! clearly it was a cheating kind of weekend ;)

heylush333 on instagram!!! :-)

Reply

You WOULD bungee jump? That scares me so bad. CUTE toe colors. Oh my goodness, your chips sound amazing and can I come over for that gelato dessert. That sounds like a restaurant dessert.

Reply

it wasss a restaurant dessert! next time you come to nyc, go to Mario Batali’s restaurant called Otto.. thats where i had the pizza and crazy gelato brownie thing :-)

Reply

Cute toes! My toenails are painted a baby blue. Just pained them yesterday. I can’t believe you’ve been sky diving. My Aunt has been as well, and that is just something that freaks me out to the bones.

Reply

I love baby blue toe nails…so cute. I don’t know how I did sky diving….I must not have been thinking straight!

Reply

I love pedicures! And that is a great deal on mani and pedi! I do not like ferris wheel…..stopping and turning yuck!

Reply

Seriously….we deserve pedicures weekly, those foot massages are necessary to our happiness.

Reply

I’ve always wanted to ride that Ferris Wheel and never took the time!! Looks fun!

Zebra with gold sparkles and three shades of green. I’m trying it as a distraction technique so people wont notice I’m missing 3 toenails!

My hunny made Beer Can Chicken. It was so good!

Reply

Kayla you need to ride a Ferris Wheel:) UMMMMMM your toenails sound awesome. Come do mine:)

Reply

My toes are BRIGHT PINK. Just how I like them. The most delicious thing I ate over the weekend was either my Mom’s cookies or this lemon dessert dip thing that went over fresh berries. I need the recipe asap!

Reply

Um…the second you get the lemon dessert dip recipe will you please send it to me. That sounds incredible!

Reply

Yes please on that!!

Reply

I am getting it tonight so I will share with you asap!!!

Reply

Looks like SUCH a fun weekend! I love getting pedicures. My toes are jade green right now.

We had another wedding this weekend and the cake was pistachio with chocolate butter cream frosting. So good!

Reply

Another wedding wahoo…that cake sounds amazing. Hope you are having a great day Lauren!

Reply

I actually went skydiving yesterday as well!…..but I go most weekends, so not sure it counts ;) I also ran the Brooklyn 1/2 marathon on Saturday, so it was quite a weekend! I don’t like ferris wheels either and even though I can’t wait to start base jumping someday, I have ZERO desire to bunjee jump- totally freaks me out!
I’ve recently started to blog about all my running, eating, and skydiving adventures at http://www.jumpeatrun.wordpress.com so feel free to stop on by!
Looks like you had such a fun trip!!

AHHH I tried to leave a comment on your amazing 1/2 marathon post but I think it went to spam…SAVE ME!

You are officially saved! Thanks for commenting!

That funnel cake looks divine. After my first half on Saturday I got myself a pedicure with orange toes! Yay!

Reply

CONGRATS ON YOUR FIRST HALF MARATHON!! I am so sorry that the heat stole your running soul! YOU DID AMAZING and you and your mom are adorable!

Reply

You’re so sweet – thank you :)

Reply

Don’t think I’d ever skydive or bungee jump, I’ll stick to crazy roller coasters for my adrenaline rush.
Your friend in the green reminds me so much of Hilary Duff for some reason!

Reply

Haha… little drops of heaven- I love it! & I completely agree, I hate those kinds of tables! :)

Reply

I have grown more and more afraid of heights as I have gotten older. I would probably sky dive or bungee jump given the chance! Like if I was a contestant on the Bachelor and the hot guy planned it as our date. ;) I don’t think I am going to plan a trip to do so however.. :)
My toenails are a very nude (and way too light color). HUGE deviation for me.

Most deliscious thing I ate this weekend was…..super soft coookies they were handing out after our golf tourney…I took two (and I think we were only supposed to have one).

Reply

I would go sky diving again in a heartbeat!!! everytime i watch my video i get those feelings again of falling out of a plane…it rocks. i would never bungee jump though

my toes are turquoise right now…love it!

the best thing i ate over the weekend was pho…a veitnemese soup that my fiance and i eat about 3 times a week.

Reply

Zengo is great, there’s one here in DC and also in Denver, CO also!

Reply

Not afraid of heights, but not really anxious to sky dive or bungee jump … hmmm … I did go parasailing once. Kind of boring.

My toe nails are never painted. Ever. Serious. Never had a pedicure. I don’t really feel like I am missing out, though.

Most delicious thing … I think would have to be the awesome pizza we ate for dinner, crisp crust, loaded with cheese and veggies … actually, no … it was totally the icecream cake.

Reply

So it was a funnel cake with ice cream on top?!?! Seriously, who comes up with this stuff? Geniuses, that’s who! ;)

Reply

y’all three are gorgeous! and looks like a fun time.

Reply

My toenails are painted a pinkish-purple color right now– I love it! Looks like you had a great vacation, girl! :)

I’m in severe need of a mani/pedi…I will try to fit one in tomorrow!

Ok, I call going on the next Cali girls trip. This trip looked SO fun, love it!

Reply

I am terrified of heights, but I love roller coasters. I have never been on a ferris wheel and no one could pay me to sky dive. I am also terrified of those amusement park rides on top of the Stratsophere in Vegas.

My latest of obsession in the Essie nail polish. I went out of my comfort zone of clear and pink nail polishes and painted my nails a purple/blue called “No More Film”. I actually love it!

Reply

Aw, funnel cake is so good! And so is the Santa Monica pier. I haven’t been in years, but I think I need to go back and visit my aunt and uncle. :-) Looks like you had a fantastic trip!!
