Where The Wild Things Are

Ted and I watched Where the Wild Things Are this evening. The movie is different than the book but it is still a cute story.

Free Movie Ticket

My boss received an email solicitation from a company that provides employee incentives. I am trying out the free movie ticket option to see what we think about the service.

Ted and I watched 2012 last night. It isn't a bad movie but it is too long. It didn't need to be 2 hours and 25 minutes long. It just didn't.

Madonna Inn

On our way out of SLO this morning we drove through the Madonna Inn parking lot. We weren't curious enough to actually get out of the car and go inside but it's so kitschy we felt it deserved a drive by.

Fun In SLO And Morro Bay

What a fantastic day. Ted and I started our day with breakfast as Louisa's Place in SLO. After breakfast we started our bike tour around SLO. It took about 2 hours and was a great way to see some of the interesting sights of SLO. After our bike tour we headed to Morro Bay where we spent the afternoon. For dinner we ate at Thia Classic Cuisine; some of the best Thai food I've ever eaten. All in all it was a fun filled and exciting day.

SLO Bound

Ted and I arrived in SLO this afternoon and it is a super charming town. We had a great time walking around downtown checking out the shops and of course eating.
Pictures #1-2: Mo's in SLO. Eating was our first stop (no surprise).
Picture2 #3-4: There is a small creek that runs behind some of the shops on Higuera Street and there is a nice walking path that we walked down.
Picture #5: Beth standing in Bubble Gum Alley. As interesting as it is, it is pretty disgusting.

I know I'm about 12 months behind the trend but I just bought these gladiator style sandals. Just in time for the spring/summer weather.

I can't pass up on using a $10 coupon can I? I'm sure I can find at least one thing I need (want).

The Men Who Stare at Goats

Ted and I watched The Men Who Stare at Goats this afternoon. Although I thought overall the movie was a bit slow there is a lot of funny dialogue.

John Lemon

The over-sized lemon has taken on a life of its own. Someone dressed him up and named him. Meet John Lemon.

A Study In Lemons

My coworker brought in several lemons from her lemon tree. I was awed by the size of two of the lemons. To give some perspective, the lemon in the back right is the typical size you see in the grocery store (a little bit smaller than a tennis ball). The lemon in the back left is so big it is growing its own lemon. Very interesting.

More Wild Flowers

I know they weren't planted on purpose, but the hills along Highway 1 are filled with beautiful yellow wild flowers. Picture #2 is the hill in our neighborhood covered with flowers.

Health Care Reform

I attended a seminar this morning regarding the new health care legislation. It's enough to make me rethink my career path.
