Last weekend, Chris and I had gone up Santa Barbara! We left town around noon and the drive up was horrible. There was a major accident on the freeway which backed up everything. When we arrived, we had lunch with Chris’ cousin, Katie, at a local sandwich shop called, Kahuna Grill. I love Katie so it was great seeing her.
I also finally met one of the loveliest people I ever met on Livejournal in person, after seven years of online friendship! That only happens to other people, but not me ya know?? It was pretty cool. Corrin and her boyfriend, Peter, were in town from Florida for a little vacation. We met up at Chipotle and the next thing we knew, we had all been talking for nearly three hours! It honestly didn’t feel like I had met her online at all – it wasn’t awkward at all!
We spent the night at Santa Maria Hotel and it was pretty cool hotel. It used to be a prime location for filming and Marilyn Monroe actually attended the high school nearby!!
The next day, we drove back to town and went to see Cirque du Soleil: Toruk. This was my third Cirque show and it was meeeeh. I still liked it; but it’s something I wouldn’t want to see a second time. The first act was a bit boring but the second act was great but it just seemed like they tried too hard with adding a storyline to the stunts.
It was still a really good weekend. Can’t wait until Chris and I go on our next trip!
