Ummm, yeah, it's time for a post...

I've been thinking about blogging - does that count? Probably not...

First up, I promised JP some California pictures. Here is an assortment. Yes, they are all "people pictures" but I think that's more fun. In order: Hollywood sign at a park in Hollywood Hills, Palm Springs - San Jacinto State Park and 9 inches of snow, me and my new sheep friend at Disneyland (I remembered only later that I actually had a sock in progress in my bag - how cute a picture would THAT have been!?!)...









Okay, the next one is self-explanatory...it was my first trip EVER to Disneyland and I was very, very, very excited. I wore a "First Visit" button all day. Yes, I know, I work at WDW - it was still exciting!!!!!!! The next picture was taken INSIDE Walt Disney's apartment above the firehouse on Main Street. A friend of mine who works at WDW but used to work in CA called in a favor and got us a tour. That almost had me in tears...it was really incredible to know that that amazing man used to stay up there during the construction of Disneyland. There is a lamp that sits in the window to my left that is always on - it symbolizes the time during construction when the workers would look in the window to see if Walt was still there at night.

The last picture is with Sean's friend Greg. I just liked the colors in it, even though Sean looks a little odd. This was taken at a swanky (yet unassuming) cocktail party that Greg took us to in Palm Springs - given by the sort of people who are rich as anything and don't really care and are super nice to boot. Fun times!!!!!









All in all, it was a great trip. The wedding that we went too was fantastic and fun. I drank a wee too much champagne but it was tasty and Sean was driving. I'm actually looking forward to going back out in July for yet another wedding - another of Sean's college friends. I haven't ridden everything I wanted to at Disneyland yet so we HAVE to go back there.

That's about it for today. I had grand plans to include knitting in this post but I'm sort of tired and am ready to watch some TV and work on my Mystic Light shawl.

Later for now...

Becky! Miss you and the rest of the MBA class tons. Granted I feel these days like I'm living in a never ending MBA class. Hopefully, we'll be able to get back to Florida for jobs in the future!
