On Vacation!


Mat and I apparently like to travel. Particularly to places we’ve already been. Last year, in addition to our Fiji honeymoon, we went to Vegas in August and then to San Diego for a night in November.

Now, we’re in Solvang for the next 4 days. This is the 4th time we’ve come here together, the first being in January 2010. We came back in January 2011, then October 2011 for a quick weekend trip for my birthday, and now this year. We love coming up here to drink wine, eat pastries, wander the town, and just relax. We’ve stay at the Wine Valley Inn each time except the October trip and we love it. It’s cozy and has a really good breakfast included.

When we got into town today, the room wasn’t quite ready when we tried to check in early. So, we went to Subway for a quick, inexpensive lunch. I had a 6 inch oven-roasted chicken sandwich and a bag of harvest cheddar Sunchips.



We did a couple of wine tastings after and then wandered the town a bit. In one place we saw this oven timer and i thought of Steph because she loves owls. And I thought of Kappa of course. šŸ™‚

Now we’re settled in our room planning to have peanut butter and jelly for dinner while watching trash tv. Vacation is awesome. šŸ™‚

  1. Your vacation sounds delightful. šŸ™‚ Todd and I had such a nice time when we went to Solvang for Valentine’s Day 2010. We would love to travel again soon! However, we are currently saving AGGRESSIVELY to be able to buy a house in about 3 years so I will have to live vicariously through you! haha

    It’s great that Mat was able to get 4 days off! Your school must not start back until next Monday, huh?

    • Yeah we go back on the 14th. Mat accumulates vacation time so as long as we plan well he can usually take time off without issue.

      House-buying is a pain. We put an offer in right before Christmas but no luck. We’re hoping that the new year brings more options.

  2. Well much good luck to you, Melissa. šŸ™‚ I would have been very surprised for your first offer to have been a success! Do you ever watch property virgins?? I love that show when I have access to cable!
