i spy a hidden mickey!

We've been busy hanging out at the SD Zoo and checking out tide pools and beaches, but I haven't had the chance to upload photos yet.  Matt's even been using his Flip camera to take some funny videos.  I'm happy he's been enjoying his birthday present.  The weather's been beautiful and we've seen some cool creatures!  I've really loved being at the beach, walking on the sand and walking along the shore with lapping waves.  Hopefully I can share some snippets soon.

I was amused to find this seemingly Hidden Mickey in the rocks of the tide pools at Corona Del Mar on Sunday.  Hidden Mickeys are everywhere!  Or so I'd like to think :)

jr mint's big 'mile'-stone

First it was...


Woohoo!  So proud of my lil jr mint!  We've been anywhere and everywhere together for these 100,000 miles and I'm looking forward to many more adventures in the future :)

stitches cakes!

And this is what became of my special ingredients.  Cute and tasty, and based on our favorite sock monkey friend! :)

(I also forgot to take a pic of Matt with Stitches and a Stitches cake, and a pic of Matt with his birthday present.  Oops.  Will need to do that in the near future.)

happy birthday, matt!

Today is Matt's birthday!  Unfortunately, there was no celebrating today since he's still up north and I'm still down south.  Boo.  However, he'll be arriving for the weekend yet again and celebrations must commence!  I've been bugging him for a week to figure out what he wants to do.  Of course, he's indecisive and not at all helpful, but for now, he says some time at the beach (and tide pools!) might be nice.  Let's hope the weather holds up!  I'd love to give my DSLR a workout outside with such beautiful scenery.  I'll have to ponder other festivities and/or a nice meal, too. 

Matt already opened his birthday gift last weekend, but I didn't get the chance to take a picture of him with it.  He loved it, so I'll say it was a success!  The ingredients above are for the surprise I'm planning to make for him tomorrow after I get off work and while he's driving down. I developed the idea solely in my head, but I hope I'll be able to execute it and that it'll be an awesome (and delicious) treat when it's done and he arrives.  I'll be documenting the process - fingers crossed! :)
