This week was kind of grey at the beach. I know it was like 80 degrees everywhere else in San Diego, but this time of year the beach is under a near constant cover of clouds and fog known as the marine layer (kind of reminds me of the line from Twilight about Forks, anyone else?)
Well, under the the fog this week...
Scott did a 360.
I broke out a different surfboard. It's a swallow tail thruster. What does that mean? It has three fins and a tail like a swallow. I guess you may have figured that out. It's also a little wider and thicker than my typical short board, which was perfect because, although California had swell, it was kind of mushy. Here I am riding it.
It's so humble at the end when I'm all looking back like "did you get that?" This isn't even a good wave.
I made my mom's pasta salad sans chicken and an Ina recipe for soup I got from Bridget.
This week I got the
I feel honored that Ashley and Robin from 333 Miles ...with love gave me this Leibster award. I went back to my friend Emily's blog to see how she formatted her post when she won and then realized she had given me the award way back when. Feelings of overwhelming guilt followed. Thanks Emily! Sorry I totally missed the mention. I recommend checking out both blogs as the girls who run them are some of the sweetest and funniest people I have met through blogging.
Now I'm gonna pass the award along to: Red Lipstick and Melodies, F-E-S-T, Life is Sweet, The Failte House, Frikken Duckie. Read about what to do here.
Part of the award is sharing 5 random things about yourself.
Since I already shared 10 random things about myself I thought I'd share 5 random things about Scott and me.
1. We've read the Twilight and Hunger Games series together
-I read Twilight out loud to Scott which started when he was sick and then continued after that.
-We listened to The Hunger Games series on "tape" (i-pod) starting on a road trip.
2. We both have two younger sisters. All 4 of them live on the east coast. Our middle sisters live together in NYC.
3. We like to play video games at night
-Currently we are playing Zelda, but we love a good Mario Cart race. Scott almost always wins, but when I win he can expect excessive celebrations and in-your-face remarks
4. I don't have a pet name for Scott. I just call him Scott or husband. He calls me Dev, wife, sweetheart and love.
5. We both got our black belts as kids. Don't mess.
And that was this week. A week where I stayed up too late and woke up too often in the middle of the night, but a week where I was very thankful for my life nonetheless.
How was your week?
