On the way home from San Luis Obispo we stopped for a beautiful hike along the beach at Montana de Oro and it was so worth it.

239! I cannot believe it has already been a little over 4 months since starting 365 til 30. I actually got a little sad when I wrote 239…I don’t want this year to end!

Brian and I are taking a road-trip this weekend, up to San Luis Obispo for a mini reuinon with his closest friends from college. Considering I’ve met them all before (and actually really like them) I am excited about this getaway. What should be interesting, though, is the fact that two of the three other couples just had babies. Meaning, we are headed into Baby Central. Why should this be interesting? Well, because I wouldn’t say Brian is a huge baby person. It’s not like he is mean to babies or anything. He just doesn’t get why people think babies are so cool. I guess most men don’t unless the baby is theirs. When I “ooooh” and “aaaaah” at cute babies on the street he looks at me as if he’s thinking…are we looking at the same thing?

So for personal enjoyment I have three goals this weekend.

1. Get Brian to hold a baby

2. Take a picture of him holding a baby.

3. Post awkward baby holding pictures on blog for everyone to enjoy

 -What Inspired me this week?-

Brian’s photography!  Not only is Brian a brilliant Urban Designer but he also happens to be a brilliant photographer and his new site went live today! (Can you tell I am a fan?) Click HERE to see it!

My new book “Mennonite In A Little Black Dress”. It’s totally cracking me up! I can’t remember the last time I laughed out loud while reading.

Planning our next camping trip…in December. HA

-What am I grateful for this week?-

-What surprised me this week?

For once nothing! Phew. Maybe the big guy in the sky knew I was a bit overwhelmed from all the surprises last week and gave me a break this week.

High five God!

My computer and camera are having communication problems and it is driving me insane. I can see the fear in Brian’s eyes, he knows I am a very small step away from having a complete meltdown.  I am also really tired. Don’t I sound like I am fun to be on vacation with at the moment?!

So I will be posting the camping adventure story and pictures when I return to LA.

On a positive note-

San Luis Obispo is absolutely beautiful and I am having a great time. That was until my computer tried  to get in my way! But, I won’t let it. Instead, I am going to take a nap, listen to French music, have a glass of wine and then a lovely dinner with Brian’s friends.

I will survive this.
