Art Galas, Road Trips and New Books

Just a quick update - Mr. Bee and I attended the annual Art Alive Gala at the Museum of Art. We went last year and this year it was equally amazing. Local florists and garden clubs get to create their own floral interpretations of the museums artwork, plus San Diego restaurants cater, you get free cocktails, and of course, photo booth action. We made sure to take advantage of the photo booth.

One room had magnifying glasses - we had fun with those too.

I love how amazing the artwork looks against the red walls.

Last weekend, we took a roadtrip up to northern California, Lake Tahoe, and Reno. I'd never been there, and it was eye-opening to say the least. It was so nice to get away, and actually more fun than I'd thought to be in the middle of nowhere. 

I picked up a hat along the way - the sun is pretty harsh up there!

And my husband has been craving this Pendleton blazer for a while now. The bolo tie was my idea.

In all honesty, I slept 1/3 of the trip up there and I'm still recovering today, but it's so nice to realize that I actually left San Diego and went somewhere and wasn't totally sick, even though I'm paying for it. Fortunately I have tons of work to do, laundry to clean, and banjos to play. No boredom here.

OH - and I bought and immediately read the newest Sookie Stackhouse book, Dead in the Family. Ihave to say it's not as good as some of the others in her series, but I obviously enjoyed it enough to read it in two days. I can't wait for True Blood to start up again. I have a tough time deciding if I like Bill or Eric more - the books are definitely much different than the show.

I'm looking forward to my baby cousin's birthday party this weekend - it's luau-themed so I need to scour my closet to find something slightly Hawaiian. May be harder than it sounds!
