Well it's been too long, but between facebook and my husband's blog hopefully you haven't forgotten me.

Where to start... since last time we've been keeping pretty busy with normal life stuff plus enjoying the terrific weather here and making the most of the pool too. 

We have had an offer accepted on a house and are in escrow waiting for their bank to approve the short sale.  The house is awesome, not in the exact location I wanted, but close to everything including work.  And a reasonable cab ride to the strip too!

Here are a couple pics of the place but to really see it you'll have to come visit us.  I'm hoping we are moved in by October.

Now that the house shopping has settled down we took the opportunity of the Memorial Day long weekend to head to the California coast.  We stayed in Torrence at a really cheap Days Inn that I wouldn't recommend but it served our purposes.  The first day we drove down the Pacific Coast Hwy to Newport beach stopping at Sunset Beach and Huntington Beach along the way.  Beautiful!!

The next day we hit the road with Zuma in tow and headed North on the PCH all the way up past Malibu and then proceeded to make our way.  We spent the majority of our afternoon at Venice Beach which was a crazy experience.  Then ended a long day at Redondo Beach for supper at Joe's Crab Shack, which was an excellent meal.

Lots of hot surfers!

Bought a new hat at Venice Beach

Venice beach is the largest I've ever seen!

Roller skaters and so much more to see
It was a fabulous trip and spurred on lots of ideas for our next trip out there.  We'd like to camp on the beach up towards Malibu.  The campsites are directly on the beach so would be a great camping trip for the summer months to get out of the heat of Vegas.  It was actually really cold to us in CA, the temperature was in the 60's and we are now used to the 90's.  Very refreshing and was kind of nice to need to wear a sweater again.

That's all for today but I'll try to write more often small quick posts (I've heard that before right?!).  Heading to the pool on this beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon.  Ciau amigos.

I love your new little house, Tanya, it's very cute!
How are things? The group has disintegrated into nothing! Waaah!!!!
I have lost my knitting mojo without having other knitters to keep me going. I am going to Cricket Cove this evening for their knit night, since I remembered it is this Tuesday. I often forget.
Nice to see you guys venturing out. I'd love to drive the PCH one day.
Take care, love the new hat! Please keep in touch, no one else is.
