in and out and the opposite sex.

so i never understood why people love in and out so much. i mean its good, but is it that exciting that if you live out of state any time you're here you have to make a trip to in and out? this is what i ordered when i ate meat : cheeseburger with grilled onions no 1000 island. and as a veggie: grilled cheese raw and grilled onions no 1000 island.

seth and i got in and out on the way back from a midwife appointment a couple weeks ago. he got me to try a bite of his grilled cheese with 1000 island on it for the first time, not bad. then we went again on the way down to santa barbara yesterday and i made the big leap and ordered mine with 1000 island on it.

my life is forever changed. i have seen the light.

that was what was missing for me all these years. now i know why 1000 island comes on every burger automatically, it used to seem like such an obscure choice. now it only seems natural and like the best choice possible. if i lived in another state i might drive to california JUST to get in and out.

that being said... i'm onto the opposite sex. after seth and i got in and out we had a great conversation about the opposite sex. seth and i always had mostly friends of the opposite sex. he had lots of girl friends and i had lots of guy friends. after we got in and out he said how he missed his girl friends and i said how i missed my guy friends. neither of us feel weird about the other hanging out with their friends of the opposite sex, but theres this weird thing that comes with marriage where your friends all back off. i get that its out of respect and other people get weirded out if they see you with another guy/girl other than your spouse... but seth and i wish we could have our friends back in our lives. they are important to us and both of us want those kind of friendships again... anyway its always so nice when we talk about, well, anything cause we relate so much and its so nice to have a husband who wants me to have my guy friends and isn't jealous.... and its nice to trust him so much that i honestly really want him to spend time with his girl friends cause i know its important to him. .... so to all our oppie friends... come out of the wood works and chill with us again!!! its not awkward.

Well, I would if I didn't live thousands of miles away.
Hang out with Seth that is...
But I would also go to In and Out if I weren't thousands of miles away.

Seth could just come visit here, and I could take him to all the cool music venues while Josh babysits.
Hahahahaha.


The first time we lived in TN I bought all the stuff including 1000 island dressing to make home made in and out. It wasn't completely the same, of course, but it was pretty close.

great...now i desperately want a double-double and i'm all the way out here in west freakin virginia...and i don't even eat beef anymore! damn you skylana!!

honestly though, i totally miss in-n-out and cannot offer a valid reason for it, but if i got to come out to cali i WOULD hit up the place, cow and all...i disgust me...

;)

oh and friends of the opposite sex? can't handle it and neither can my husband, so i give you two props for being cool like that

I'm glad you've discovered that In n Out is amazing. Lane and I drive to Santa Maria or Atascadero just to eat there. Sooo good! I want it right now.

I love I&O, but always refuse to try it with the dressing...I think I'm going to take the leap, too... Thanks!

I had a lot of guy friends before i got married, and I didn't have to give them up, I just had to learn what an appropriate relationship was like now that I was married.

Good on you guys for figuring it out so you don't have to give up your friends for all of your life.

That is so funny. I was just saying to my husband the other day that I want to go to cali just to eat. I miss all the good eating spots. You can't find a good burger out here like IN and Out.

Since moving away from California, the food I miss the most is definitely Del Taco (sick). Their chicken soft taco is amaaaazing.

I tried in-n-out for the first time last month when I was in Cali and loved it! the second time i got it, I passed on the dressing, but I loved the chocolate shake and my favorite part is how cheap it is!
