400 steps to the top of Moro Rock brought us to this...on my way down
I overheard a girl tell her mom, "mountains are one thing, but this is
like Heaven!" I couldn't have said it better myself.

A walk in the clouds

Our hike took us to Moro rock. I really can't explain how beautiful
this view was. We were completely above the clouds. (the white you see
is clouds, not snow)


Sequoia National Park

Today we drove up North to Sequoia National Park. It was absolutely
magnificent. The trees and the mountains were stunning. On our way up
I was so excited because this was a "once in a lifetime opportunity,"
but it wasn't - because I'll be back. My kids will have to see this

Yes, our day has truly revolved around food. After a lovely walk on
Rodeo drive, we met up with Brittany at Pinkberry in Westwood. I've
been looking forward to Pinkberry for at least a year...and I was not
disappointed. I would definitely have it brought in if I was in jail.

Roscoe's Chicken n Waffles

Continuing our food diary...lunch took us to Roscoe's Chicken n
Waffles. A true LA experience. Sweet and greasy...a delicious yet
slightly sickening combination. The only thing missing was Brittany
and a Snoop Dog sighting.

Breakfast and First Celebrity Siting

We had a delicious breakfast at King's Road with Josh and Brittany.
Highly recommend it. While we were there, Jane Lynch walked in and met
someone for breakfast. Not the flashiest celeb siting, but we'll take
it. Hard to see, but she's right behind Josh.

On an unrelated note, I still love California.

Could there be a better day to leave for California??

na- na- na- na- na- now that that don’t kill me...

It just wasn't meant to be. Me and blogging, that is.

After my trial-by-error attempt to finally successfully blog via phone/email, I was all amped-up and wrote a new post on my way home tonight. Which never posted, never sent and I can't find anywhere.

However, it's Thursday night, and as the subject of my post revolved around it being Thursday night, I figured I should probably try my best to re-post what was lost.

Where was I? Yes, Thursday nights. I think that they might be my favorite night of the week. There is a great sense of anticipation as the week comes to an end. You can literally smell Friday. There is also a certain amount of freedom felt...You can endure anything for one day, so why not live it up on Thursday nights?

The real reason I love Thursday nights, though, is the OFFICE. I spend all week in anticipation. Of every one of those 22 minutes. I think this has been the best season of The Office ever so far. Bringing Holly to the show was one of the best moments of brilliance that has been derived thus far. I didn't think they would ever be able to bring in a new character that was better than Andy, but I was wrong. And who thought they could ever come up with an office romance better than (or at least on par with) Jim and Pam??

The best part about Holly is how she is just as dorky as Michael. I didn't realize how great it really was until I came across this picture of me and Gary from our trip to Indianapolis a couple of weeks ago. And then it struck me–does it GET any dorkier than this? MFEO.

So here's to another Thursday night...and hopefully many more dorky moments. (Fortunately, most of them have NOT been captured on film. However, someday You Tube will need to be exposed to some of Gary's Best Dance Moves Ever. Video camera for Christmas anyone?) SO glad I found this guy.

P.S. - For the record, it is now 8:30 and what is on the TV? Football...but that's another post...

Testing, testing

Having recently been called out (AGAIN) on my lack of blogging manners and respect for readers (where is Emily Post when I need her?? - no pun intended), I decided that it was time to figure out how to post from my phone. This is my test post to see if this works...this is for you, L&K!!

Awww...too bad I already bought your present!
Hopefully you'll have your own Very Useful Dog someday. :)

What's in a Name?

Creative? Gutsy? or just plain Bizarre?
You decide.
