Friday we hiked in some pretty intense heat at Malibu Springs. I was literally dripping sweat with every step but I kept pushing up Mama Jama and some other, um, super fun hills. The fog prevented the view of the ocean but as you can see from the pictures below, it was a beautiful view anyway. I felt like I was on top of the world. Sorry about the black and white, somehow I reset my camera settings and my brain was too hot to figure out how to turn it off. How odd to come off of one of the trails and see a car parked in the middle of nowhere with an Iowa State University sign on it. No joke. Not sure what they were doing in the middle of Malibu Springs but it was kind of cool to see a little piece of home. Suffered a slight bit of heat stroke and sickness which messed up my fun Friday afternoon but apparently I needed the rest. Today I hiked Zuma Beach again. Loved it, per usual.
I spent the afternoon shopping with my friend Andrea. We found a wonderful outfit for my big reveal party on the 29th. I can’t wait to show up in it and see everyone’s reaction! And it was super exciting to find out what size I am now. Who would’ve thought that size would ever zip up on me? Not this girl. Can’t deny it brought a pretty proud smile to my face. Thank goodness Andrea is way better at fashion and girly things than I am. I can barely even spell accessories and she was all over finding me wonderful ones. It was so wonderful to spend the afternoon with her. I love when you can spend years living across the country from each other but once you’re together, it’s like you never missed a beat.
