California Girls

This weekend was so full of fun and awesomeness....It was bestie Carries b-day and we went for not one but for two days of California style celebration.  Friday I snuck out of work early to play on this piece of awesome

Yes that is a ginormous slip and slide!! Add that with a few Mai Tais and it is party central.  I was a good girl and the DD so I  only had two.  We also did a little swimming

  and Carrie did a little more drinking, enough to let us throw her down the slide, yes we threw her lol it was epic!
Yes it's sideways ugh but it's too funny not to share!  

Then we made our way to Fred's in Huntington Beach, little did we know it was the U.S Surf Open!  The place was packed and crawling with beach bums, I think every one of them in the state of California  was there.  But we had a good time and I was good here to one skinny margarita and fish tacos (grilled not fried, go me!). We went to HB Brew Co. after and had another drink (water for me aren't I good) then called it an early night because we planned to go paddle boarding early the next morning.

me and the littles (the younger girls)
Saturday we were up and out by 9 and off to Newport beach were we had a groupon for Balboa Fun Tours. When we got there we were a bit confused (as I have never done this before) it looked like the shop was not really near the water, (I expected it to be right on the beach) but guys at the shop were so nice they  told us that we would be right around the corner in the marina. They  got the boards loaded it up into a little wagon and biked it over to the beach for us gave us some quick instructions and we were off.  It was a bit tricky for a minute but once to get your balance it was pretty easy.

Remember I said I had heard it was a good core work out, it's true.  Nothing super intense, but you could feel your self working some muscles! 

We had a blast paddling around the marina check out the beautiful houses and boats.  We got back a little early (we had two hours) so played around and  tried some yoga poses on top of our boards (this is a real thing, people actually do yoga on a paddle boards wtf??)  
I rocked the shit out of that warrior pose!
Then TaTa had to show me up and do a back bend
I LOVED it and will be doing this again soon (I already bought another groupon) for $20 you can't beat it.

After we walked down to the beach and had some lunch, it really works up an appetite.

yes one more drink (a skinny mojito and the three of us shared that big ass basket of fish and chips.

What fun things did you do this weekend?

  1. What a fun weekend! We watched Guardians of the Galaxy . It was amazeballs! :) Oh we also finished off The Killing on netflix . Nice and relaxing weekend. Should have exercised more, but oh well. I rarely have a calm weekend so it was a nice change of pace!

  2. looks like it was a lot of fun! Too bad the weather wasn't better!

  3. That looks like an awesome weekend :0) We kept our niece, and had a really good time. We watched Divergent. That is a super intense movie, but great. Great job on having that much fun and still making some great choices in regards to eating. It makes me feel like, "okay, I still enjoy my weekends when I get closer to my goal :)"!

  4. Love those pics! Looks like you had a ton of fun:-)

  5. How fun! Balboa is always a good time.

    Thanks for linking up for MMG :)

    SUP is so fun!! We tried it in Balboa last year and had a blast going around the bay. Boy it was a lot harder than I thought it would be but such a good workout. :) Have a great weekend!
