Monterey Bay Aquarium

My Hubby finally got a breather from work for the All-Star break, so we took a little day jaunt down the Cali coast to visit a beloved place from my childhood, the Monterey Bay Aquarium. I'm so glad we went - we had such a great time. Some snapshots from the day:


 
You know me and my love of jellyfish... The Jellies Experience exhibit was amazing!


A Moon jelly

Upside-Down jellies

Pretty multi-colored jellies

Polka-dot jellyfish

Even glow-in-the-dark jellies!
 
Can you see the seahorse?


South African penguins begging like dogs at feeding time
 

The stingray touch pool. This Batfish gave me a slippery high five.

Funny story: I took a photo at this aquarium with this tube of Anchovies way back when I was 5 years old!


 
 
If you are ever in the Bay Area, I suggest a visit to Monterey Bay and Carmel!

Sorry! I'm Still Here...

Hey guys! Geez, sorry it's been so long since I've posted. Our god-forsaken internet connection has been spotty for a couple weeks now. And I'll be honest - making the dreaded phone call to set up a random 3-hour window for an internet provider representative to fix my internet has not been top priority this month. It's really the 3-hour window that gets me... who has a 3-hour lunch break?



And even if you do have 3 hours to sit and wait for the cable company rep (not browsing the internet or watching TV, because if those things were in working order, you wouldn't need the appointment in the first place), the rep usually arrives in the first 2.4 minutes of the 3-hour window when you're still in your bathrobe. Or he arrives in the final 5 minutes of the window when you're wondering if he'll show up at all and feeling a bit like you've been stood-up on a date, life just passing you by.


How am I blogging right now? I'm on my work computer. It's a slow day. Don't tell my boss...


In conclusion, thank you for your patience while I procrastinate fixing my home internet. I'll be back up and running shortly! I disdain broken internet. Makes me downright mad, like this kid:

Geisha Glam


I was reminiscing about my time in Japan after seeing this pretty photo story in Vogue Germany. The Eastern themed editorial reminded me of all the geisha photoshoots we got to witness in Tokyo temple gardens. Kimonos and gardens seem to go together like peas and carrots!

That reminds me, I need to find a clever way to wear my kimono jacket!
Suggestions?
