It was another hot day in Vegas today.
Picture #1: Ted, Nicole, and Bryce after brunch each sporting their alma maters hats: UCSB, UNC, Cal Berkeley.
Picture #2: The temperature was over 100 degrees again today so we spent more time at the pool.
Picture #3: I had a Krispy Kreme doughnut for a snack after the pool.
Pictures #4-8: Pictures in the Venetian.
Pictures #9-13: Ted and I decided to check out downtown Vegas. As many times as we've been to Vegas neither of us had been downtown. It was really neat to see old school Vegas.
Picture #14: Ted took me to a Korean restaurant in the Imperial Palace casino. I had bi-bim-bop and it was delicious.

It was hot, hot, hot today in Vegas. After a delicious brunch at Palazzo, Nicole, Bryce and I spent the majority of the afternoon at the pool. The pool was crowded but still a very nice place to sit and relax on a hot day. For dinner we dined at Lupo, another Wolfgang Puck restaurant, at Mandalay Bay. After dinner we saw The Lion King. The show was amazing. I've wanted to see this show since it opened on Broadway in NYC, and the wait was worth it. It is definitely one of the best shows I've seen at the theater.

We flew to Las Vegas this afternoon to hang out with our friends Bryce and Nicole for the weekend. After getting settled in to our hotel rooms at the Palazzo we met for dinner at Cut, a Wolfgang Puck steakhouse. The food was unbelievable and had a price tag to match. Definitely a five star establishment.

I tried watching Like Water for Chocolate a few years ago but I didn't like it. My friend Pat loves the movie and the book and was telling me about them the other day. To hear Pat describe the story it sounds interesting so I figured I would give the movie another try. Pat lent me the movie and the book. I'll start with the movie and if I like it I will try the book.

Ted and I saw Inception this afternoon. It was really good. I had no idea what the movie was about and I'm happy to say I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the movie. Unfortunately the projector stopped four times during the movie, each time at a pivotal point in the movie. On the upside, we got two free movie passes for the hassle.

Fun, fun day. Ted and I spent the afternoon in Solvang and then had dinner at Trattoria Grappolo in Santa Ynez. The weather could not have been any nicer in Solvang; perfect for walking around.
Pictures #1-2: Eating delicious Aebleskiver.
Picture #3: I found these magnets in one of the gift shops. In Korean Oma means mom and Opa means brother.
Pictures #4-6: We discovered the cutest cupcake shop in Solvang. The shop itself is super cute and has a retro vibe. The cupcakes are out of this world delicious. I'm so glad we found this shop and now have a new place to buy sweet treats.

My company volunteered at the United Way Fun in the Sun Lunch Bunch today at Goleta Valley Junior High. Lunch Bunch is an opportunity for local companies to spend a lunch hour with elementary school kids eating lunch then playing games. This was my second year participating and I spent the hour playing card games with two kids, Martina and Benji and had a great time. This is a picture of the volunteers from my company. From left to right: Greg, J.T. Jillian, Chris, Beth, Fay, Annette, Ana.

When I was in North Carolina last month I found my first computer and printer. My parents bought them for me before my freshman year of college. At the time they were state of the art; seeing them now they almost seem like toys. At the time though I loved them. Most of my college papers were typed on this computer and I found a few that were still saved. Talk about old school.
