Museum of Contemporary Art, La Jolla

I visited the beautiful La Jolla location of the Museum of Contemporaty Art, San Diego yesterday. The location is stunning! Overlooking the water, the views are just incredible.

I loved the installation pieces- especially the ones by Tara Donovan and Cornelia Parker, and Nancy Rubins. (see photos below)

Gluten-free bliss!

I found a pizzeria here in San Diego that has gluten-free pizza..... it's a dream come true!

California Dreamin'

I arrived in San Diego a few days ago, where Jack has been for two weeks. He's busy with his acquisitions class, which last a total of 4 weeks. Me, I'm basically on vacation, although it is kind of a lonely one, because his class and his studies take up most of his time.

But it's beautiful here--yesterday I went on a 2 1/2 hour walk around the Marina. Our hotel is close to everything, so I can walk everywhere. After my walk, I swam in the pool, then made some dinner before Jack got out of class. Today, I'm off to the gym, and to do some laundry.
It's been sunny, and in the 70s- perfect weather as far as I'm concerned!

On Sunday we went to church, then visited my cousins Kristy and Vance, and their two adorable girls. Next Sunday is Mother's Day, and my cousin Melinda invited us to their house for dinner. (they live about an hour from here) I'm always excited to see the family, and play with all the kids!

My parents, and my aunt and uncle, will be driving down and camping nearby, so it will be nice to hang out with them too. And one of these weekends before we leave, Jack and I are going to do a dive trip out to one of the Channel Islands... I can't wait! It's too bad that we couldn't bring our kayaks with us... our hotel is just steps away from the bay. Oh well. There are plenty of fun things to do around here!

bye-bye (snif) house

I drove away from our house today, for the last time. All the boxes are packed and loaded on the truck. I've been so sad the last few days, thinking of all the wonderful times we've had in this house. It's been 4 great years, and it's hard to leave. Bye-Bye Utah. Hello Alabama!

In a few weeks, we'll be Alabamians... (is that what they're called?)
Our next Air Force Assignment, a new place, a new ward... a chance to make new friends and experience a new place. It's always an adventure!
It's sad to leave old friends, but I have to admit, that I LOVE decorating a new house every 4 years! And we get to see all parts of the country, so that when Jack retires in just 9 years, we should know exactly where we want to settle, and build our dream house. (This also means that we'll get to settle in one place before our kids start high school, so we won't have to make them change schools-- that would be awful.)

So, I fly to San Diego tomorrow, to be with Jack. He's attending an acquisitions class, and I can't wait to spend a few weeks in CA, and to be with my honey. I can't wait for walks on the beach, visits with my cousins, and some really good Mexican food...
I heart California.
