Dearest Chick fil-A,

I’m deeply sorry for my extended absence. I do promise to try and return sooner than 10 months from now for a taste of your glorious waffle fries, sweet polynesian sauce and southern charm. You complete me.


A frustrated Yankee




Whispering sweet nothings to the Chargrilled chicken sandwich before complete domination.


Don’t act like you don’t talk to your food too. You know you do.

In all honesty, that was the best part of the day. The rest of it went something like this:

2:30 AM wake up

on the road by 3:30AM

drive, drive, drive

look for meteor shower through sunroof, see nothing. Figures. (I’ve never seen a shooting star!)

drive, drive, drive

stalk Starbucks until it opens at NJ rest stop for some coffee at 5:45AM

drive, drive, drive

traffic, traffic, traffic


drive, drive, drive

Pee stop!

drive, drive, drive



CHICK fil-A!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

drive, drive, drive

traffic………..rain…….HEAVY rain…….still traffic

drive, drive, drive

Get the point?

13 hours later we arrived. To this.


Ocean and bay views. Gorgeous.




The plan for the day includes a bike ride, beach time and Luna Pops! Enjoy your Sunday!

What’s your favorite thing to do at the beach?

    I’ve never had Chick Fil-A! But, I am a Cali girl that is obsessed w/ In-N-Out so in general, I feel your pain.
