Carmel and the Mysterious Birthday Plot - Part 3

Yes, having floor to ceiling windows is wonderful - except when you're trying to sleep in =) T'was bright! I'm not even sure it was sunlight or just light...

Breakfast! Our chef prepared biscuits and sausage gravy! I got to watch the Iron Chef Tammy in action and I want to try making this breakfast myself. (though, I'll probably just go to Jim's instead). Lots of freshly ground Peet's French Roast coffee was consumed over the weekend courtesy of Kev. Tammy made lemon ginger scones too!!!!

Did I mention that there was a 24 pack of diet pepsi in the fridge?

More yakking and relaxing around the house. In fact, I went out on the deck and relaxed myself right into a nap.

We left the house around 2 and drove back into Carmel because there was yet another surprise awaiting me. Strippers! NOT. I was escorted by Tammy, Kev and Foxy to a building on San Carlos Street between 7th & 8th. T'was The Signature Day Spa. I was treated to a nice long deep tissue massage. OOOOoooo.... Yes, I was just a wee bit tight. My massage therapist, Zena, agreed with me big time. Thank you Siller, Tammy, Kev, Sean, Joey and swedishsis!!!!

Kev had gotten a massage also, so we were both marshmallows. While certain people went crazy in the wine shop and the yarn store, this marshmallow sat in the park with Tammy and chilled.

Next up, dinner at Bahama Billy's at the Barnyard. Got to taste different mojitos - yum! Sweet potato and french fries with habanero aioli and chutney. I had a spinach salad with strawberries and comfort food meat loaf and mashed potatoes and guava gravy and sauteed spinach. Definite YUM. Tammy and I indulged our inner pyromaniac and had their version of Bananas Foster. OOOH flames! Yum. I haven't had that dessert since Noah & I split it at the restaurant on the pier in Santa Barbara. The key lime pie was tasty too.

We all waddled out of the restaurant and went back to the house. Driving that windy, narrow road in the dark (no street lights!!!) was not my idea of fun.

Much silliness occurred - Apples to Apples with this group plus much wine? Oh dear *g*

I think we crashed a bit after midnight.

Edit 09-24-10 10:14am: Thank you also to Siller for the marshmallowy goodness!!!
