Mine mine mine mine

More sorting today.  Sounds boring… but you try sorting papers while tending to a curious 6 1/2 month old and his curious Welsh terrier.

More planning underway.  I’ve got the first 3 or so cities done.  My workflow for picking out where to eat is check food network map, compare to route.  Cross check reviews with yelp.  Then do a yelp check to see if food network missed something.

What I’ve learned so far.

1- Guy goes to a city and eats in lots of places, but makes different episodes out of it.

2- about 75% of the places only got around 3-4 stars on Yelp.

3- People on Yelp either love the place, giving it 5 stars, or hated it and also hate guy for sending them there, giving it 1 star.

So pretty much if a place has 4 1/2 – 5 stars and has over 100 reviewers, I’m betting its pretty good.  Any other ratio and its a gamble.

Weekends here in southern cali are dwindling.  Of course May grey is back… cause its May and all.  May Grey June Gloom.  I had never heard of that phrase prior to moving out here.  It’s no joke.  Please don’t waste your $ going to ‘sunny’ southern california in May or June.  Unless you are going to Palm Springs… It’s always sunny there it seems.

Things we still need to do in Cali-

1- Go to Huntington Library Gardens

2- Santa Barbara. We would love to go there again, but realistically that won’t happen, but I’m keeping it on my list just because.

3- Eat another frozen banana (I like mine 1/2 rainbow sprinkles and 1/2 Heath crunch fyi – yum!)

4- Go to the Ritz in Laguna Niguel – its pretty

That’s all I can think of at 1:05 am… wow I really do pretty much post at the same time.  Probably because DS decides 12:30am is the ideal baby bed time…

Luckily we aren’t staying in some hotels more than 2 nights… they are going to hate us, haha.  We are going to be one of ‘those’.  If you see people with a baby and a dog checking into a hotel, be afraid. Heck, I’m afraid for myself 🙂
