We went to Balboa Park today and the items on our agenda were the Botanical Building and the Model Railroad Museum. We also moseyed on over to the Rose Garden and the Cactus Garden. (We had to leave the Nevada desert to see a cactus garden?) The Botanical Building The botanical building and lily pond… Continue reading San Diego – Day 2
Nick and I made awesome time and made it to San Diego in only 5 hours. After we checked in to our hotel on the bay, we made the less than half mile walk over to the USS Midway, the decommissioned aircraft carrier that has been turned into a museum. Obviously, it’s enormous. What I… Continue reading San Diego – Day 1
Nick and I treated ourselves to an amazing dinner at Michael Mina’s STRIPSTEAK at Mandalay Bay (while also working on our 101 list item of eating at 18 different restaurants on the Strip). Our meal started with duck fat fries (as a ‘contemporary’ replacement to a steakhouse’s standard bread basket) served 3 ways: Old bay… Continue reading STRIPSTEAK
Nick and I hit out some more items on our 101 list on his latest off day.

The Natural History Museum was…underwhelming.… Continue reading Museum Day!

She just did it for the first time yesterday and, before she left class, she managed to snag a few materials so she could practice on me… Continue reading Angela is Awesome at Drawing Blood
My birthday this year was pretty amazing. Nick started it off wonderfully by letting me sleep in, followed by a dual-effort of French toast (since Nick is not exactly culinary-inclined). Then it was off for a nice pedicure before hitting what ended up being a ghetto mall. Nick bought me two perfumes I’ve been eyeing… Continue reading My Birthday
I really liked this video. Thought it was a pretty awesome viewpoint and something we can all learn from.
I’m quite goal conscious and have become more so in the last couple of years. I think that writing down and thinking about measurable, concrete goals is the way to a happy life.
