My BFF spent 12 days in WA with me.
Would your BFF fly across the country & spend 12 days with you because your husband is out playing in the woods for work? No, that’s the answer.
Everyone was all, “Aren’t y’all going to get sick of each other?” And we were all, “Obvio, but we’ll just slap each other around a bit and get over it like normal people.”
We did all of the things – went to all of the cities, ate all of the vegan food (& cheated on our diets a bit – PLS LOVE ME I’M ONLY HUMAN!!!), went on long walks, saw Coldplay in concert (v casual), ate more food, watched some sad TV, and ended the visit with a trip to Whole Foods because I am a really adventurous host. I offered to let her be my assistant/doggy nanny and told her she could live in the guest bedroom for a small rent & cleaning fee, but, sadly, she returned to Memphis.
Luckily, we have matching shark tattoos to remember it all by.

Chiffonading. I had no idea. I’m all out for that …. watch out France she’s loose and chiffonading.
Yummy. I’m obsessed with heirloom tomatoes.
I just love the combination of basil, tomato and olive oil in any recipe, this tart looks scrumptious and would love to have it for lunch tomorrow! 🙂
They are strange looking maters, but once you try them they are amazing! Looks delish!
