When I was little I went over to my friend Grace's house for a sleepover.
She had a computer with a Wheel of Fortune game on it and I instantly became obsessed. I played game after game. Poor Grace eventually wanted to go to bed and I told her to go ahead but asked if she would mind if I just kept playing.
Now that I'm an adult I can play my Wheel of Fortune app as much as I want! It was well worth $4.99.
I was in such a rush to play the game that I didn't bother to make my character look like me.
Now I'm stuck with the above character. Even the Pat Sajak avatar looks confused. - Posted using BlogPress from my iPad
I picked up a bag of Burger King flavored Ruffles my last day in Mexico.
Verdict: The first couple of chips you eat tastes exactly like a Whopper. I kid you not. It had this grilled taste to it that was so reminiscent of the real thing. Unfortunately after a few chips the flavor kind of warps in to a BBQ flavored chip. But those first few bits are surreal.
I enjoyed a delicious cappuccino at a lovely street cafe in Long Beach, CA. It was piled high to the sky with foam.
Why do I always Yelp donut shops wherever I go? It always ends up getting me into trouble...delicious trouble. With almost 1,500 5 start reviews, I asked Jeff to guide me to Bob's Donuts & Pastry Shop in San Francisco. After a 30 minute walk straight up hill that just got higher and higher, we arrived sweaty and joyous. I chose the chocolate old fashion and an apple fritter. Jeff got a jelly donut and a chocolate buttermilk donut. They were all delicious but the jelly was a real stand out.
As you may recall I blogged last August about my dream of one day seeing a blue footed booby.
Well ladies and gentlemen I am happy to report that I saw one in Mexico!

We were out on a snorkeling excursion in the Marietas Islands which was already a sight to behold....
when suddenly our tour guide asked us if we anyone wanted to see a blue footed booby. I freaked out and started screaming "Me!!! I do, I do!" Jeff was shocked because I'm normally not a huge wild life fan. He then guided us to a collection of rocks that boasted tons of blue AND yellow footed boobies.
Our guide told us that although they are mostly found in the Galapagos Islands a bunch have migrated to this cluster of islands off the coast of Puerto Vallarta. When I shared this fact with my Father he immediately became (jokingly) suspicious.
"I wonder if someone is just painting those birds feet? I mean what are they doing in Mexico?" He said.
My Dad grew up in Mexico so I tend to take his word on everything.
The birds feet looked legit to me so I'm gonna go ahead and say there was no hoax :)
