This is my excited face! I'm considerably less stoked right now, though, because after a week of sunshine and little babies in California, I'm back to work. In the picture I'm at Disneyland, and if I recall, we were about to go find a roller coaster.
Aside from getting my Mickey on, here's what else I was up to. The family rented a beach house for the week (cheaper than a hotel!) and the water was about 100 yards from our front door:
The Hubster and I spent a day at the Getty Museum, which was almost entirely built out of travertine limestone (and also houses some pretty nice artwork):
This next one isn't an activity so much as an observation. California has a lot of awesome plants that would probably die if I tried to grow them in Illinois, like this green popcorn-lookin' thing, also at the Getty:
And of course, there was the food. Lots of delicious sea creatures, like the cioppino I had the last night we were in town:
There was also a little bit of sunburn (my ankles and left shoulder, figure that one out), but overall it was nice to get away and partially unplug. I didn't blog, I didn't Tweet, and I barely got on Pinterest! I kept up with customer correspondence, and that was about it.
But now I have a to do list with 600 things on it, which is usually how it goes after a week off the grid. Time to make a pile of orders, catch up on my blogs, and do all of that pesky laundry that's still in the suitcase.
How was your week? Did you do anything fun while I was gone? Anybody else do some traveling for the holiday?
