I used to watch The West Wing after dinner with my parents every night. The subject matter and humor may have been mostly over my head (I was 12 when the show started) but I was fascinated by the fast paced witty dialogue and the idea of working with the President. I’ve been a politics junky ever since. I recently decided to re-watch The West Wing from start to finish (bless you Netflix). It was on for a long time, so I’m not very far into it, but already loving all the characters all over again. It’s so interesting to see how issues have evolved (or not) since the early 2000′s. Did any of you watch the show?
I spent a wonderful Father’s day with my Dad yesterday. I know I’m lucky to have my father so close. The whole family went out to the Long Beach Flea Market (Dad loves a good swap meet), then the Aquarium of the Pacific (Dad is also a big fish lover) and then his favorite restaurant Slater’s 50/50. They make a 50% beef, 50% bacon burger and it’s pretty good… We were all rolling out of there at the end of our meal. This photo of the 2 of us was taken when I was about 2 years old at Bryce Canyon National Park. On this trip my dad decided I had gotten too big for the baby backpack.
Oh my gosh, this upcoming weekend is my Bachelorette trip to Temecula (Southern California Wine Country)! 6 of my very best girl friends and I are heading down there for great food, great wine, and some fun in the sun. My wonderful Maid of Honor has planned everything, so all I know is we’re grabbing dinner Friday night, wine tasting ALL DAY Saturday, and staying in for a old-school slumber party in the hotel suite Saturday night—pizza, nail polish, chick-flicks and boy talk. Any good girl movies we should bring? Also what Temecula wineries can you recommend? (P.S. this photo was taken at a dance party during ALT Summit!)
