I was lucky enough to spend the entire last week in California - the state of M's birth/childhood. M's parents threw us a California wedding party - complete with wedding cake - and it was sooo wonderful. My parents even flew out, and we all had a GREAT time.

The day after the party, all four parents, M and me drove to South Lake Tahoe - Tahoe is just gorgeous...I could live there and be tres happy. The lake is so pretty, and the weather is nice and cool! We stayed at a casino...and we WON money! Ok, so M won $8 at craps and I won $1.50 on the penny slots, but hey we still won! The room was unbelievable - it was almost as big as our apartment. Seriously. TWO bathrooms, a couch...a chair...king-sized bed...SO nice.

The next day we drove around the lake a little bit (along a road that had hairpin turns, sheer drops and NO GUARDRAILS), to where we could hike down to Emerald Bay. We toured Vikingshom Castle, which was really pretty - a mansion built by a very very rich woman in the 1920s.

After a couple more days in M's hometown, we went to San Francisco with M's parents. Sigh. That is another town I could live in - even though it is really expensive... I just love the big, bustling city, all the people, the arts and of course all the European stores!!! We hit LUSH, H&M, Zara and Mango - happiness! We spent some $$$, but since we had spent about $50 total on the entire trip so far we didn't sweat it.


Now it's back to the grind and BOY it sucks! =) I don't like having to get up so early (I keep saying that I'm still on west coast time), and I don't like having to sit in the same place for SoooLonnnng. But oh well.

I have SO much more to talk about, but I need to pay attention to the Presidential Debate. Oyvey. I'm NOT going to talk politics on here, but the two candidate's views on the current economic crisis are VERY interesting.

More soon!
