Hello from Long Beach!

I've written two posts already about our trip and due to our fabulous high speed internet connection (read:sarcastic), I've lost both posts. Here are the highlights. I'll post some pics when I get back.

1. The view. We can see the Queen Mary and the harbor from our room. There is a little balcony out our room but I've been scared to open the door (we're on the 9th floor...the top one) because I have visions of the Frog jumping to his death.

2. The weather. It has been perfect! We go on walks everyday while SD is in his meetings and I don't even get hot. I did have to buy a very attractive visor so the sun didn't kill my face.

3. The food. We've been eating really well. Also...I went to SEE'S CANDIES! It's been almost 20 years since I've lived someplace with access to a See's Candies. Mmmm. Nuts & Chews baby. We also ate at Bubba Gump where I had my favorite, "I'm so stuffed" shrimp. Delicioso. Last night we ate at Gladstone's with a group of professors and students. I had an awesome halibut. The best I've ever had.

4. Seeing our friends from Purdue. The V's had their new baby. It's a boy! Russell Datus. They're calling him Rusty. He's a little mini B. Lots of hair. Cute little round face.

5. We're going to the aquarium today. I hope it's a highlight. Frog is screaming bloody murder right now because I won't let him throw a keyboard around the room. I hope the day gets better. Aaah. Parenting.

I better save this as a draft at least so I won't lose it. We're coming home tomorrow. Wendy--we'll need you to tape Survivor for us again. Is that okay? I'll make you a dairy free treat of your choice!


  1. I know you love Long Beach, but I KNOW you LOVE Survivor!! Maybe I'll drive the tape over so it's waiting at your door :)

  2. LOL i'm reading you loud and clear!
    I hope you're having some fun! it sounds wonderful!

  3. Bubba Gump! That place rocks! YUM!
