Paddleboarding in O'side

Alex and I tried paddleboarding for the first time on saturday at the Oceanside bay right by the Jolly Roger. It was serene.

Some Photobooth Photos from our wedding

I have been married for two weeks! I have been doing my best to perform all the post wedding tasks in a sincere and appreciate way while at the same time trying to really enjoy married life with Alex.

Reviewing the photos from the photobooth has been a delight. We still have 6 weeks before the photographer will have edited and printed photos for us, so these photos are the first chance I have to really see how much fun everyone was having. Each and every one of these photos is a treasure.

Since the Wedding

I was hoping that the next blog post would be a big married-now update. This last week has been a flurry of wedding fallout activity and an attempt to get back to regular life. I'll have more photos from the wedding soon!

Wedding DIY : Quaker Wedding Certificate

I am getting married in 8 days! I know they tell you that you should stay away from DIY projects because they bring on unnecessary stress, but I couldn't help myself with this one.

The item you see below is 19x25" and will be placed at the entrance of our reception. All our guests will sign it and we will get to remember this fact when gazing upon the wall hanging for the rest of our lives. Its a beautiful piece of art and a lovely way

Despite having to learn many new tricks to put this together, I am pretty happy with the way it turned out. Sure, I could have informed my paper choices a little better, measured twice cut once, and fit in a few hundred more hours worth of calligraphy tutorials, but all things considered, it doesn't look half bad.

High Tea at the Royale Tea Room

The Royale Tea Room in La Jolla Cove is running a Groupon Special. A company running a Groupon is usually a red flag for me. Its either a fledgling business with a change on management or product offerings, or one that is brand spanking new with no reputation to speak of. The Royale Tea room was an example of the latter. 

I consider myself to be a quite a High Tea Connoisseur at this point, so we decided to give it a shot.

Snorkeling at La Jolla Cove

Rowdy invited me for an impromptu snorkeling trip to La Jolla Cove my last off friday. I have NEVER gone  snorkeling before. I am scuba certified so I like, know how to do it, but I never before have embraced the pure enjoyment of swimming about with fins. It was so fun. It was also a beautiful spot. If you remember, this is where I went Kayaking with Alex for his birthday.

Antique Gas and Steam Engine Musuem

There is an Antique Gas and Steam Engine Museum in Vista. We haven't been to it before so we decided to check it out. For some reason it sounded way more fun than the creationist museum, and we've thoroughly pursued all the Balboa park options three times over. 

We thought it would be more musuem-y. There weren't many placards and most of the time we didn't know what we were looking at. In general, it looked like we were walking through a partially curated junk yard. I could tell it was cool and unique, I just culdn't make heads or tails of it. The point of a musuem is to like, learn something, right? I could tell there was some real information here if only a knowledgeable and vociferous person was standing beside me. 

Photos to follow.
