What I did on my summer vacation- San Diego edition

Oh hi you guys!  It's been many moons since I've laid my eyes upon this blogger page, and I thought I'd fill you in on what I've been up to.  Although it's not the only trip I went on this summer, my San Diego trip is fresh in my mind (and the Chainsaw has our other trip pictures on his computer...need to look into that for myself).


My best girl Laura and I are both Aries, so I was pretty excited to see this horoscope the last week before I left.


We went to the beach every day, including not one, but two special sunset trips.  This was from our hike to the beach on the first beachy sunset trip.


Just feast your eyes on that majesty!


Sunsets, ocean frolicking, and cliff hikes can make a lady hungry for diner food.


And a giant milkshake.


We went to Kobey's swap meet, which was super fun.  Laura found her very own magical crystal, which she may or may not love almost as much as she loves me?


I bought this badass cobra ring.  Unfortunately it turned my fingers green.  Any tricks for this?  Can I paint it with clear nail polish or something?  It's hard to be a badass cobra ring wearing lady when you're worried that your own fingers are turning snake-like in color.  I may or may not have also bought a Mexican wrestling mask.


Sunset number two was viewed at the appropriately named Sunset Cliffs.


Laura and I bought big floppy hats at the swap meet (and I got extrabigass glasses), which turned us into movie stars.  It is impossible to not be glamorous in this costume.  It's also really hard to take best friends forever self portraits while wearing big hats.



Unfortunately that little cloud bank stopped us from seeing the sun disappear behind the ocean, but oh well, it was awesome anyway and we saw that magic at sunset viewing number one.


Laura serenaded me with a Metallica song at the beach.


And then this happened.  Tell me how many times you got to hang out at an impromptu beach jam with your best girl and an awesome accordion playing gentleman.


We also went to the zoo, where we got to take in the sweet sights of polar bear dumpers.


And HOLY CRAP panda bears.

Ok, I think that's good for now.  I just got my shop updated with all the creations I made this spring.  I haven't made anything new all summer, but apparently I had a righteous stock pile just hanging out, waiting for its debut.
