I can't believe I've only been back for one week.
It seems like it's been a month, a year, forever.
Here's what (or who, I guess) I dedicated my life to on my very last day of break in Houston:
First, let's talk about food because... hello, how long have you known me now?
If you're new around these parts - I just love food a lot. The end.
Let's talk about the tradition that my best friend Brina and I have:
we meet at Barnes & Noble,
so that we can stand there and soak up all the knowledge in the books around us.
No, we don't actually read them there. We literally stand there and talk and sometimes get Starbucks.
Let's talk about how we then traverse over to La Madeleine,
a key defining place in our friendship,
where we eat this wonderfully flaky and creamy chicken friand,
with the intoxicating side of mushroom sauce.
Let's also talk about the fact that Brina had just come from a dentist appointment,
her mouth was numb & she had a lisp & she could only have the tomato basil soup,
and I was really sad that she couldn't take part in the fantastical princess of food up there.
We can also talk about how I always want to try ten million things at La Madeleine,
like the quiches and the eggs Benedict or ooh, the Croque Monsieur,
but because I usually only get one day in this magical land,
I always go with the chicken friand. I play favorites, I don't care.
Let's talk about how sometimes we stray from tradition too,
like how I ordered an extra chocolate-almond croissant,
because I was feeling especially starving,
and I took one bite of this heavenly crispy-on-the-outside,
dark-chocolate and pillowy goodness on the inside beauty,
and decided that she can be a part of our tradition too from now on.
Then, we can talk about how Brina and I never ever take pictures together,
mostly because she doesn't love the camera like I do,
but I forced her (by way of not giving her dinner) to this time,
and even though we don't have shoes on,
I'm going to pretend this is kind of an outfit post...
Proof that she avoids the camera like the plague.
Proof that she's not serious about this camera-loving lifestyle like I am.
Proof that we actually love each other.
