Day 85-Adding Adventure

So I am in Santa Barbara. Staying at the four seasons…however it is amazing how 2 toddlers can be so draining. It is going to be a long day tomorrow…good thing they are sooo cute! Adventurous? It will be tomorrow since it will be raining and playing outdoors will not be an option.
Really don’t understand why these rooms are so expensive. $500 a night in the winter…why??? It’s a decent room with an unusually large bathroom but seriously? Just sayin’
I hope everyone’s day was full of adventure…’til tomorrow.


Day 84-Adding Adventure

So we went to the Gift show and got to look at a lot of things we couldn’t buy. ¬†Unfortunately the cash and carry options do not start until Friday and so we went the wrong day ūüė¶ ¬†But it was a cool experience and we got to have ¬†a nice lunch in downtown.

Then it was on to babysitting…so cute! I got dissed by a 2 year old, who told me I could not go to Disneyland for her birthday and then added that she was not sorry for saying that and making me sad! ¬†Wow!

This weekend I am going to Santa Barbara for a medical conference. Why a medical conference ¬†you ask? ¬†I mean you are not a medical professional, to the contrary a legal one. ¬†Well I am thinking of branching out and trying different things, and being a doctor does not seem so hard. ¬†Pretty much just tell people what ever is ailing them is caused by stress and/or their diet. ¬†Write a prescription, tell them to exercise and relax and bill hundreds of dollars. ¬†HAHA, no but my best friend is one and she has a conference and wants me and a friend to come along and help babysit. ¬†free room in Santa Barbara in the adventures of babysitting…too bad it will be raining on Saturday!

I hope everyone’s day was full of adventure…’til tomorrow.

Day 83-Adding Adventure

Tonight I watched Midnight in Paris and had a healthy dinner of salmon and quinoa. uplifting, cute movie and sensible yet delicious dinner :).
Tomorrow is the gift show and then babysitting…yay!
Wouldn’t it be amazing to go live in Paris for a few months. Just a few months, no one knows you and you can be and do anything! Sounds so…so much like not real life! It probably would end up being a disaster, passport will get stolen, language barrier outgrows its sweetness at week 2. Money runs out. Laws are different. Ok so Paris is out. It’s fun in theory and either way would make a fantastic adventure.
I hope everyone’s day was full of adventure…’til tomorrow.

Day 82-adding adventure

Not much excitement today. I did watch The Descendants, sad movie. Not sure if I would call it the best movie of the year but it was good.

Also made the mistake of having McDonald’s today, it always seems like a good idea until after you eat it and feel like there are bricks laying in your stomach…which is how I feel right now.

I do need more of a creative outlet,¬†haven’t¬†quite found the right thing yet that is unleashing it but I am exploring some options. ¬†Writing, drawing, painting…I¬†don’t¬†have a creative eye, so I think I should stick to words.

Also need to start working out to get my cardio in shape for Costa Rica, and I suppose in general.  It is pretty embarrassing not being able to get up a few flights of stairs without feeling like I am going to die.

I hope everyone’s day was full of adventure…’til tomorrow.

Day 81-Adding Adventure

Well, sorry for being MIA for a few days but while in Vegas I was in some kind of internet black hole…so strange! ¬†On the one hand it was nice to be disconnected, but mostly it was frustrating!

Vegas was great, as always but of course had no luck in winning anything! ¬†The room was awesome and we had a great view from the terrace…

Apparently we got there during the CES convention so our hotel was filled with nerdy men.  We were practically the only females there among men who seemed like they have never seen females before.  I felt like a zoo animal on display.

Sadly, turns out also that the red bull thing is most likely a scam and not legitimate.  I guess the hunt for funding continues.

With respect to the Jet blue experience, I do still like Virgin America better, however, I will wait until my longer flight to New York to make a full determination.  The Vegas flight is so short it is hard to make a fair assessment.  It was nice having live tv on the plane and watching the last quarter of the Denver/New England game.  It was a blowout but still was cool to be able to watch it.

Had good dining too, I ate a lot of red meat :). ¬†Thursday night finally got to try China Poblano, a Chinese/Mexican restaurant. ¬†Yes I know that sounds unusual. It was actually very good. ¬†The service was not, our waitress was dismissive and unhelpful but the food was good. ¬†It is another Jose Andres restaurant, one of his less pricier ones. ¬†Had a twenty vegetable fried rice that was on the “10 best things I have ever eaten” list and it was really good. ¬†Friday night was DOCG, where the food and service was excellent. ¬†Bartenders brought over free shots to us, our waitress gave us free dessert. ¬†I had an excellent filet. ¬†And there was fascinating people watching, pretty sure there was a table of sister wives and their husband across from us. ¬†At least that is what we decided it was…

Going to the gift show on Wednesday, never been but seems interesting.

I hope everyone’s day was full of adventure…’til tomorrow.

DAY 80-Adding Adventure

So I got it, I will be displaying Red Bull proudly on my car for a good chunk of money!! YAY! ¬†It’s like red bull is sponsoring my adventures, I’m like an athlete!

So it is here, I am going to Vegas tomorrow!! whohooo!! couldn’t come at a better time, I am so ready to get away for a few days. ¬†Vegas is magical, once you get there the rest of your world melts away…kind of like calgon ūüôā ¬†You guy’s remember those commercials? ha!

Also my first time flying jet blue, I have heard good things.  I am a big fan of Virgin airlines and jet blue seems very similar.  Full report tomorrow.

I hope everyone’s day was full of adventure…’til tomorrow.

Day 79-Adding Adventure

So, I might have found a way to make some extra money. I have applied to have red bull put a decal on my car. I really hope this works out. Basically I will make my rent and all i have to do is have this thing on my car. It is for 3 months only but it will be easy money. ¬†Renting my car’s surface is definitely a better option than selling my body or my soul!

I am also getting back to reading more. ¬†That way my mind can go on adventure’s for free (i know cheesy and so not the same) but its cheap! ūüôā ¬†The more I watch jeopardy the more I feel like there is so much more I should know and could learn. ¬†Speaking of game shows, never went to price is right, better get back on that!

I hope everyone’s day was full of adventure…’til tomorrow.
