Some pictures of my Alaska trip

A week ago we went to Anchorage for a short vacation. That wouldn't be my first choice of where to go but last year we promised my cousin that we'd go for his promotion ceremony and celebration for the Air Force.

It didn't get dark until about 130am and then the sun rose at 430am - crazy! I got a chance to do a little sightseeing downtown and took a day cruise on Prince William Sound to see the glaciers. It was really pretty, and although I'm glad I visited, I can't say I'd go back. I got bored.

Congrats Lt. Col. G!

I get motion sickness, it's so sad. So I had a few margaritas made with glacier ice, so after a while I got more comfortable.



I always make time for yoga!


I'm king of the worrrrrld!

Team Green strikes again!

I have to say that carpooling is phenomenal. On 5/27 gas was 4.19 a gallon, today on 6/2 it's 4.31 a gallon. Thank goodness for Team Green! For those of you that don't know, Sarah (aka mboc) and I have been making a concerted effort to carpool to and from work. It's been great so far and I've cut my commute time in less than half AND am conserving gas. She is surprisingly chipper in the morning too!


Today I got a special surprise and the other half of Team Green granted me HC+L status with this birthday present! Thanks mboc!! I now have a reason to get a pedi.

It was such a great day that I had to end it with a bang - 4 miles in 43:44 on the treadmill. Holler! Toldja I'd start training for the Disney halfie hardcore-style once I got back from Eskimo land.

San Diego Rock and Roll MARATHON!

No, I didn't do it, but Yahpee and I went to go cheer on my bestie Jamie! It was hot, so it's a good thing the race started at 630am. Yahpee and I were out the door at 7:07am. zzzzzzz.....After getting in from Anchorage last night after 1am, I was pooped like a muther but SO GLAD I was able to make it, largely due to Yahpee who organized the planning to get us down there.



Go Jamie and congrats on another great season with Team in Training! She has raised thousands of dollars (I believe over $5k) on her OWN for the cause of Leukemia and Lymphoma. So.Proud.of.Her.





The expo was cool - look what we found! This one goes out to Ashley!
*Squealing*



Yahpee and I were STARVOESHA after soooo....we made it to El Cajon Blvd. in North Park (eeks) for one of the best things about San Diego....


Carne Asada Fries: Before and After. Oy.


Mama's hooome!!

I missed blogging and missed reading everyone's blogs even more while I've been away! Thanks for the birthday wishes (5/31 was my 31st birthday - "Golden Birthday" per Cat) too.

In quick summary:
- went to Anchorage for my cousin's promotion celebration to Lt. Colonel in the US Air Force. This is a big deal and I am so proud of him. Got some shopping, photography (hee hee), cruising, and sightseeing done. Found out that telling people you're looking for "eskimos" isn't very politically correct.
- went to San Diego Rock and Roll Marathon today with Aline to watch my bestie Jamie run it and just got back. Good times and yummmmmmer food!
- I'm pooped like a muther.

Pictures to follow, but here are some pictures for now:
