Urban Girl Alamanac: Snooze

Another busy week in the city. It hasn't gotten much quieter in our apartment, but Rob and I have figured out a method to get some sleep despite it all. It is amazing what eight hours of rest can do for you!
  • Earplugs + a waterfall noise CD on repeat + exercise to exhaustion = sleep!
  • The History Boys was a strange movie.
  • Make that a crafty Amish child genius with a really good prescription for Ritalin. What were they thinking when they put that the sock monkey project would take a kid one hour? I've invested about six hours, and it's still not all the way done. (Although, it is really pretty adorable).
  • I love the internet...it is such a great way to connect with people.
  • I dislike the internet...couldn't I be using all this time I spend blogging to do something else? Something that would make me a better person? Something like third world dentistry? Bulgarian history?
  • Jeeze, wedding planning can be stressful. I'm trying to book our venue a healthy sixteen months out and still feel rushed.
  • I'm convinced Live Trace works by magic elves.
  • Shopping without borders rocks!
  • Apartment hunting is a fun way to check out previously un-explored neighborhoods.
Rob and I leave for San Luis Obispo tonight. I can't wait to visit with his sister's family, eat loads of good Mexican food and get a couple nights of uninterrupted sleep at my parent's house!

TOPS on my list of horrible situations would be a loud neighbor. Sooo, sorry!
God bless earplugs.

As a 10 year San Luis Obispo resident, I gotta ask... where are you going to get the great mexican food? In my experience, it's hard to come by in SLO unless you trek out Guadalupe. Or head up to Morro Bay to Taco Temple (California-Mexican fusion).

Do share any secret taco spots you might know of!

I love sitting in the garden patio at Chili Peppers with a burrito...or enchiladas...or anything else from their menu. And the fish tacos at Cabo San Luis are pretty authentic.

The mexican food in SLO is so much better than up here in SF. Much spicier and hotter (temp).

What time do you expect to get in tonight?

We're going to leave here at 5, so probably not until 9:30 or 10. Want to do breakfast and other fun things tomorrow morning?

The only thing we have to do is the nephew's birthday party Saturday from 2-4.

If you stopped blogging my world would be worse off, so now you have to continue! ;)
