Chick Mafia


Hey hey hey, beauties! How we doin’? SnackFace has caught a cold or flu or is just having sinus issues. It’s probably my own fault. My weekend made me sick, but it was so worth it.

I woke up bright and early, eager to test out the new kicks. I had a bangin’ run and I felt as though I could run forever. Forever being just a hair over four miles, but you know what I’m sayin’. Actually, a kind gentlemen caught me on a walking portion of my run and told me I was doing a great job. “What? Me?” I asked with trepidation. “Yeah, I saw you pluggin’ along there. You’re doing great,” said the kind man. “It’s just the shoes,” I said, because it must be.

As soon as I got through the door I was ready for food. After a quick stretch I settled in with some favorites:

Banana, almond buttah, coconut, almond milk, Shredded Spoonfuls...yum

Brooke-baby picked me up at 11:30 a.m. and we headed off to Trader Joe’s for essentials. The only exciting new purchase I got was Peanut Butter Puffins. Oh, and when I said essentials I meant these:

We got our brews. Both are delicious and inexpensive. Holla.

We got our brews. Both are delicious and inexpensive. Holla.

We didn’t crack those open until later. Instead, we made Hugh Jasses together:

All my salads look the same. Lo siento. Spinach, broc, green beans, cherry toms, sesame sticks, salsa, peanut-something dressing. So frickin' good.

That is where the food photos end for Saturday, but I did manage to eat my weight in Stacy’s Pita Chips with Sabra hummus. Both were the roomie’s and both were replenished the next day.

Britty-boo, Brooke and I got dolled up together at mi casa. How girly can we get? Not sure, but watch out. Someone dubbed us the Chick Mafia over the weekend. I need a tee that says that! Here we are, being mafia-ish:

Pretty tough, I know.

Pretty tough, I know.

Saturday night, we met up with our Irishmen at The Blarney Stone. Pause and say that aloud in the best Irish accent you have. It’s fun. Okay, but we met up with them at 10ish and they were all hammered by then. First I was told they started drinking at 2 pm, which turned into 12 pm, which turned into 11 am. I never would have guessed:

Pardon my toothiness. Look at HIM.

Pardon my toothiness. Look at HIM.

Oh wait for it…it didn’t take long for him to go…

DOWN! Wheeler is down!

DOWN! Wheeler is down!

I have about 50 pictures from that night, and I’d love to share all of them, but I know I’d bore you tears. Here’s some eye candy, for a sweet treat to wrap up Saturday night pictures:



We (the girls, not me and him, dirties) taxied back to my place, ate more pita chips with hummus while chatting and then we crashed. I got a solid seven or so hours of sleep, felt a bit of a sore throat, but didn’t care and wanted to move on with my day. Girls had biznass to attend to.

Cruisin’ back to Brooke’s, we all noted how ravenous we were. Thankfully, she was fully stocked:

Puffins with Spoonfuls, almond milk and raspberries

After a couple hours of showering, lounging, plucking, dressing, we were ready for a sunshiney Sunday. By 2 pm we were starving and hit up a grocery store for grub:

Sushi with Kombuchi

Sushi with Kombuchi

I got the Kombucha in an effort to rid my head of building pressure and throat of increasing soreness. Not sure it helped, but I did love it and  this brown rice vegetarian roll:

Ate it with my fingers, fa sho.

Ate it with my fingers, fa sho.

Fueled, we were ready for our next adventure. We heard there was a free Sugar Ray concert in Golden Gate Park, so we tried to find it. Getting there was a huge ordeal that included unexpected miles of walking. At least we got our cardio in. Eventually, we found it:

Concert was crowded, but...

Concert was crowded, but...

It was definitely a bust. We missed reliving the nineties. Sugar Ray was nowhere to be found. We sat at a table for a while, trying to hunt down the Irish lads. During that break, a wife-beater wearing sir asked us if we were from LA. Ha! Nope, I’m just from Ohio, dude. Britt and Brooke, however, fit the part at least by being Californians.

A long walk and busride later, we stopped into Safeway for, um, “dinner”:

Clif bars!

Clif bars!

Sad? Nah, just convenient. I did eat more when I got home later, of course. We chewed through our Clifs en route to meet the men folk. We went from Shannon Arms to some other ridiculously-named pub, dancing and laughing the whole entire time. Again, I am so fortunate and blessed to have met these gems:

Chick Mafia, Blonde Trio, Wack-Craic-and Sixteen-A$$

Chick Mafia, Blonde Trio, Wack-Craic-and Sixteen-A$$

I left the gang early so I could go to bed. I’m a workin’ girl, yo! You tired of people pictures? It’s cool. You get a breather until next weekend 🙂

I woke up feeling like dung. My sinuses were stuffed, my throat was sore and swollen, my ears ached, my joints ached. Nasty sinus problems! So what did I do to alleviate the pain? I made myself go running anyway. Sometimes working out helps me through illnesses. And sometimes, it only exacerbates illness. It definitely woke me up, but only for me to realize how poopy I really did feel.

I came home, showered, had the chills, put on a big sweatshirt and jeans and made breakfast. I had a Barbara’s Bowl:

Barbara's Bowl: Puffins and Spoonfuls with almond milk and berries

Barbara's Bowl: Puffins and Spoonfuls with almond milk and berries

Gahhh I love CEREAL! You had no clue, right? That was the bright spot in my morning, as I crashed shortly after this. I curled up in bed until I absolutely had to leave for work.

Work, as one may assume, was rough. I found myself dozing off, which I never, ever do! Instead of dining with the rest of the VegNews crew, I went home for a lunch of my own and some downtime. Classic SnackFace lunch that I’ve missed:

Green: pita with spinach and hummus, celery with salsa, sliced pear.

Green: pita with spinach and hummus, celery with salsa, sliced pear.

I love eating lunches that are prepared by others, but sometimes it’s so nice to go back to your comforts. Who calls pitas with hummus and spinach comforts? Oh, just me. Sounds ridonkulous.

I felt more energized after lunch, but honestly, just wanted to go back home and cozy up in bed. Which I did as soon as I could. When it came to meal-time, I tried to get in more vitamins:

Blurry salad of spinach, cherry toms, green beans, red pepper, balls, salsa and balsamic vinaigrette

Blurry salad of spinach, cherry toms, green beans, red pepper, balls, salsa and balsamic vinaigrette

While that salad was delicious (complete with the return of PINEAPPLE salsa–so much better than peach), I was antsy for the second course. A huge plate of vitamins:

Cheetahs. Meow.

Cheetahs. Meow.

And now, my friends, I sit sipping a tall glass of water and sometimes touching a growing big ass zittie on my chin. Most of all, though, I’m already looking forward to next weekend. Bring it.

Ciao for now,


PREGUNTA: If I were to make a video, what would you like to see?
I’m down for whateva. No nudity, though.

    Okay first off, I look like an alcoholic to the blog world. It’s awesome. The pita chips and sabra made me really excited. Thanks Mr. and Mrs. Char!

    I am so happy those boys were wasted off their a$$es because 1) it was such craic and 2) Brittany would have never used the word “DRUNKASS” which means 3) we would never have dubbed each other wack, craic, and sixteen! Hells ya, m0th@fu(k@!!!!

    Shoooo..I didn’t mind the pictures. We are such weekend warriors, I LoVe iT! And am pumped for next weekend. Chick mafia meets 50,000 gays. What’s not to love?

      Jessica – About the rice, the only place I like it is sushi, for some peculiar reason! Without it, sushi wouldn’t have much substance for me. But the thought of eating rice with a spoon or something, no thanks. Just give me a baguette.

Hope you’re feeling better soon and that good weather, all your fabulous vitamin-packed meals and happy times will speed up your path to excellent health! 🙂 Lovin’ the pix from this weekend, you girls add hotness to San Fran!

  20. lol. You are so cute. I love how young and fun and hip you are even when talking about health. You have a great blend of “real life party girl” and “true life healthy girl”. Not an easy blend.

    • 22 snackface

      Mrs. Myers – Wow, thank you so much for the compliments! Haha I love that description of me! However, I dunno if the number of brews I consume would fit the “true life healthy girl.” I just try to enjoy it all, ya know?

  21. holler baller! i am now catching up on your fun filled adventures, when i come to the SF i think we simply must adventure together. i go there once or twice a year. ohh and marshall usually comes with me. ha!

    the bavarian brew caught my eye, looks satisfying to say the least. people photos are always a nice change from everyday food, especially when the photos include drunken dudes 10 sheets to the wind, i laughed.

    hope the week is splendid so far!

  22. 24 Sweet and Fit

    loving the title of this post =) y’all are too cute!

  23. 25 Jess

    How fabu are you!?! (Even when sick, apparently) I wish I could be part of the Chick Mafia-I do I have the blonde hair and a love for healthy snack-facey kind of food? Keep having fun in San Fran and yes, I would love to see a video!

  24. 26 Maya

    aaah love the Irish accents! Love your danceface. Looks like a great weekend, even if it did make you a bit sick. Feel better!

  25. 27 caitlin

    p.s. I would love to meet you one of these weekends when you have free time. I have a car so could happily pick you up and take you on a grocery run!

    • 28 snackface

    hope you’re feeling better snackbaby 🙂

    didn’t Brooke just graduate from high school? (says her blog that is linked to on this post.) underaged drinking? we all know it happens — but in the world of social media and when employers google your name (i’ve done it to find interns and co-ops), you might want to consider editing or censoring some of those pics.

    • 31 snackface

      cheryl – Thank you for that reminder! I’ve taken care of things.
