A congrats to the Pooh family! Their second daughter will be joining the family in January. Looking forward to meeting little baby girl Pooh, and glad the family is doing okay!

Guitar Hero!!!!

Blondie surprised me with Guitar Hero last week, and I've spent the last 4 days rocking it out. I totally BEAT the easy level (woot!) and am now working on perfecting my skills in Practice Round while slowly starting to play medium level songs. It is so much fun - and I even unlocked Slash and earned enough money to make him my guitar man.

The weekend was pretty good - I had to spend 8 hours working on Saturday, but other than that, Blondie and I had a lovely weekend doing absolutely nothing.

Vacation starts Thurs afternoon - I am so excited I can't hardly stand it! We are off to Spokane through Sunday, and then Vegas/Sedona from Mon-Sat.


Congrats to the fabulous VU! Her baby boy was born this past weekend and he is a definite cutie!

Da bears... Da lake...

It's a good thing Blondie is so darn cute, b/c he can sure be so darn stubborn. I've been bugging Blondie for over a week now to post about our Chi-town trip, and he keeps resisting, so it's up to Yours Truly to fill everyone in.

2 weekends ago, Blondie and I took a trip to Bear-Land. We went to hang out with the G-clan in a small town about 40 miles out of Chicago. And we had a blast! I got to meet Blondie's 2 nieces - Kenny G and Baby Rhi Rhi. They were 2 little balls of cuteness, even when they were crying. We got to eat some Lou Malnati's which is the end all of Chicago pizza. We got to play some whacked out card games (Sheepshead I'm looking at you). We got to play some BEER DARTS! But most importantly, we all just got to hang out and catch up.

This past weekend, Blondie and I and 10 of our friends drove up to Lake Berryessa (it's about 10 minutes north of Napa). We got in on Friday night, and did a whole lot of camping and drinking. Saturday morning found Yours Truly rather *green*. It was atrocious. On top of that, the closest toilets were porta-potties, which just made the whole experience that much more atrocious. Saturday afternoon we rented a boat and hung out the rest of the day on the boat. We did some grilling, some drinking, some swimming. Yours Truly managed tp get stung by a bee (honestly, a bee, in the middle of a freaking lake). We grilled out Saturday night, and on Sunday we all got up and had a few mid-morning beverages before making our way back to SF.

The best part of this though had to be on Friday night leaving the city. The fog had rolled in and it was just awful and COLD, and we finally just start to get over GG Bridge, and literally, the fog lifted in like a matter of 50 feet, and it was sunny and GORGEOUS on the Marin side of the bridge.

Got to love SF. Even if you hate it.

Give it up for Blondie!!!!

The SF Half Marathon was yesterday, and Blondie SMOKED through the course in a blazing 2:09:07 - which is rock star good! This is almost 15 minutes faster than his time last year, and this course was WAY hillier than last year's half.

I ran my half in 2:55:16 - under 3 hours which was my goal! In addition, mine was 15 minutes faster than the half last year also!

Achingly yours
