Breaking My Slience

(I did not take this picture nor did it look like this cause it was overcast, but this is where I was)

Are you ready for me again? Sorry gals...I haven't written in a loooong time! The first reason was that I didn't have anything to say.  (Also this is my 100th post and I had a plan that God changed for this post, so I was saving it but then I decided to get over it) Then I went with my family on Vacation.

I love vacation! My side of the family has been vacationing in July on the Coast for a while now.  It gets so hot here...yesterday was 110 degrees :P so it's nice to have a break.  I never laugh as much as when we're on vacation.  We went antiquing which was so fun...I got 11 beautifully patterned old handkerchiefs, I have plans for them someday!

Also my husband took me on an "adventure."  He loves to be spontaneous and we had a day where we could venture out together.  First we went to coffee and talked with a local townie/coffee maker dude, who (because he must have forgotten that he lives in a picturesque beach town and is super lucky) told us that there is nothing to do here.  I thought in my head..."seriously dude?! You don't know what you just did to my relaxing day!" My husband loves to have permission to take me on an adventure.  He told us that Big Sur (FYI see my sis's blog "How Sweet It Is" if you want to see pictures of Big Sur) was just 40 minuets away, but it gets a little windey on the way up.

So we start driving...I'm not ok with this but, we go.  Did I tell you I get car sick...oh no? Well my husband knows I get car sick but still we went.  It's ok...little windey but beautiful on the way until...oh man back and forth up and down.  Back and forth up and down.  After 40 minuets I express with a pale face...HOW MUCH LONGER? We look at a map...2 hours away!  Not 40 minuets! LAIR COFFEE DUDE!  Needless to say we did not make it to Big Sur...I will just look at Steph's pictures and keep my lunch in.

Moral of the story....never believe a local townie who lives in a completely gorgeous place that "there's nothing to do here!"  Also don't take your wife on mountainous drives when she gets car sick....that one is just for my hubs...


  1. Hehe! You poor thing! Glad to hear from you and that other than the crazy surfer dude experience you had a great time on vacation! :)

  2. Welcome back! I'm laughing inside because I'm sitting here trying to recover from being car sick after the adventure my man and I went on today... I hate the fact that I get car sick!!

  3. It's good to hear from you again! I'm glad you had fun on your vacation! Your adventure made me smile. :)
