The Previous Week

Here is another week in review.

Monday - I spent last weekend in San Diego. On Monday, I headed down to Old Town San Diego ate a giant hamburger, dipped candles, saw the Wells Fargo Wagon, looked at graffitied plants, and missed my train home.

Tuesday - I did make it home in time to attend work and run around like crazy trying to get things done.

Wednesday - This was opening day. The library was filled with curious customers and children. Every copy of Diary of a WImpy Kid got checked out within about an hour.

Thursday - I actually found time to go to the grocery store. This didn't happen very often in the past couple weeks.

Friday - I celebrated my survival of the week and hit a sale at Banana Republic. I love sales at that store.

Saturday - Our ward had a nerd night that included Wii, Karaoke and Rock Band. Needless ot say I fit right in.

A Visit From Fabulous Friends

Kim, Alyson, and I all grew up in Maine together. In order to escape winter and see me, Kim and Alyson flew into the City of Angels. This meant that I got to do some touristy things, I have had yet to do. Our original plans included attending and possibly being a contestant on The Price is Right. My dreams of winning a dining room set that would never fit in my apartment were dashed when Drew Carey got pneumonia. My mom even went to extremes to get us matching Maine T-shirts to wear on the show.
Instead we wore them in front of the Hollywood sign.
Kim* enjoyed the palm trees as much as I do. The variety of palms is one of my favorite parts of California. My preference is actually the small, stubby palms not shown here.
Somebody has an entire library painted on their garage. After some encouragement I decided to explore it.

These photos are only a smattering of the fun we had. It was a great trip and I'm so glad they came. The house feels empty without them.
