I've been tagged! Trip pictures!

This is the first time I've been tagged, so I am probably excessively excited about this. Thank you Monica (aka Rubys & Purls) for picking me! Here are the rules:

Each person tagged gives 7 random facts about themselves. Those who are tagged need to write on their own blog those 7 facts as well as the rules of the game. You need to tag seven others and list their names on your blog. You have to leave those you plan on tagging a note in their comments so they know that they have been tagged and to read your blog.

Seven random things about me (that you probably don't know):

1) My dad was National Bridge Champion in 1975 and 1989.
2) I sing in my church choir.
3) I've played piano since I was in 3rd grade.
4) My great uncle, Joe Ostrowski, pitched for the Yankees in the 1951 World Series. I must clarify that I am most definitely NOT a Yankees fan.
5) I first saw the musical Les Miserables when I was 12 and have seen it at least 7-8 times since (I've lost count) in New York, Washington DC and London.
6) I will order any dessert that has peanut butter, no matter what it is (pie, cake, torte, ice cream . . .)
7) I became a member of Pi Mu Epsilon in college for achievement in mathematics.

Now, I'm tagging:


Here's a few pictures from out trip out west. The Grand Canyon was definitely the highlight of the trip - truly breathtaking.

Chapel of the Holy Cross in Sedona, AZ. It's built into the side of a rock - cool!

Bill & I at the Grand Canyon

Diet-busting strawberry donut from Donut Man, on Route 66 in Glendora, CA. This place is about 35 minutes east of LA. If you live out there, you MUST find this place and have one!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Friends TJ and Anna, who live in Encinitas, helped celebrate.

Sunset on our last night, in La Jolla.

PS. I've switched over to Haloscan to moderate my comments. I got emails from 3 different people who had different problems with the Blogger comments. Hope this is easier!


  1. Those are some serious margaritas!!
    Also, maybe I'm the only one with this problem, but your "comment" button does not appear on your regular page. I have to click on the link to a specific post (the time stamp) to be able to comment. Weird.

  2. I live in Claremont (about 10 miles from Glendora) and didn't know about the Donut Man! I'll have to check it out sometime. Glad you had fun on your trip!

    Wasn't Arizona amazing? Definitely different from Florida (and Balmer)! Thanks for tagging me- now if only I can to come up with something interesting! And, we will forgive your tie to the Yankees.

  4. Those are some great pictures, esp the margaritas and the sunset! I really want to visit the southwest someday, it is so pretty.

    Cool facts, very interesting!
