Josh and I FINALLY got away on a vacation! For his fall break we decided to take off to California with our friends Jake and Michelle.

We had a fantastic time, we spent most of our time at the beach, soaking in the rays. I was once again reminded of my husband's luck in having polynesian genes and how the sun loves him... and how the sun hates me and my fair skin. What's the deal? Josh has never even heard of a sunburn!

After hanging around in Newport for a few days, we decided to go Disneyland. I have decided that Josh is agoraphobic (he doesn't do too well with crowds!) so he didn't have a lot of fun at Disneyland. I, on the other hand, was so excited for my favorite ride, the Buzz Lightyear shooty thing. It was really busy the day we went, so we didn't get to do much, but I at least had a really good time.

I thought the whole trip was perfect and we have decided that we're going to go to the beach at least once a year from now on! Maybe next time you can join us on our new tradition.

Oh Krissy, I've never been tagged before to do anything, so this is very exciting! In all of my 23 years, I am not sure that much has changed, (josh says I still act 5) but we'll see.

1. When I was younger my mom made a lot of our clothes, so they weren't anything fancy. But I do remember that in 3rd grade I had some sweet stirrup pants - you'd wear like three pair of socks scrunched over the top. It was awesome. I also wore a lot of Ev's clothes, she always had cuter stuff than me!

2. I own too many things from Express! I find myself realizing that my work pants are actually more comfortable than jeans, so I don't have very many jeans anymore! I have a weakness for shirts that I can wear to work, and I am lucky that Josh has allowed me a budget of buying one per month. It is excellent.

3. Back in the day I LOVED power rangers! Jen Robertson and I would watch it together pretty much every day.

4. Now... gosh I feel like all we do is watch TV! I have to say my favorite is probably Heroes. I even dream about it, maybe it's because I wish I was part super hero.

5. When I was younger, my favorite music was anything on Q99 - best radio station ever! I remember when Jaylene and I cried when all of hte sudden one morning it was gone! I developed my love for Smashing Pumpkins at an early age, and alwasy had fun listening to Ev's MC Hammer tape!

6. Now I still love my Smashing Pumpkins best of CD, it will probably be my favorite ever! I guess it depends on the day and my mood what kind of music I listen to. Butch Walker is always a favorite, though.

7. When I was younger, my favorite food was strawberries. My daddy even planted my own strawberry patch out back just for me! (Okay, so I shared...)

8. NOW I still love fruit, but especially raspberries! I also crave chicken paninis from the Atlantic Cafe by my office, they are delicious!

9. When I was little, I was afraid of being kidnapped, my parents dying, spiders and falling off a cliff.

10. Now I am afraid of our upstairs neighbors, (I swear they've killed before... but that's another story) getting wrinkles, still spiders.

EV you should do this, I want to hear what you have to say!
