In honor of Fat Tuesday and Mardi Gras, my office has received TWO king cakes today and we're all wearing beads. Mine are green and gold and if you want to know what I did to get them, you'll have to ask me later. My boss found the baby this morning in the first cake and as far as I know, no one has found the baby in the second one. If I get lucky, I'll post an update. By 10:30 today I had already had two pieces of sugary cake...maybe I should give up sugar for lent. haha. When did I become Catholic, you ask? Never.
UPDATE: I walked by the good king cake(I did a taste test) a few minutes ago and decided that for lunch, I'd have another slice. Look what I found!!!!
I've also included a link for you so that you can find out what finding the baby means for me and my life AND a recipe if you want to make one for yourself.

AMAZINGLY SIMPLE HOME REMEDIES
1. If you are choking on an ice cube, don't panic.
Simply pour a cup of boiling water down your throat
and presto. The blockage will be almost instantly
2. Clumsy? Avoid cutting yourself while slicing
vegetables by getting someone else to hold them while
you chop away.
3. Avoid arguments with the little woman about lifting
the toilet seat by simply using the sink.
4. For high blood pressure sufferers: simply cut
yourself and bleed for a few minutes, thus reducing
the pressure in your veins. Remember to use a timer.
5. A mouse trap, placed on top of your alarm clock ,
will prevent you from rolling over and going back to
sleep after you hit the snooze button.
6. If you have a bad cough, take a large dose of
laxatives, then you will be afraid to cough.
7. Have a bad toothache? Smash your thumb with a
hammer and you will forget about the toothache.
Sometimes, we just need to remember what the rules of
life really are:
You only need two tools: WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it
doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it
shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.
Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.
Never pass up an opportunity to go to the bathroom.
If you woke up breathing, congratulations! You get
And finally, be really nice to your family and
friends; you never know when you might need them to
empty your bedpan.

On a funny note, my friend posted this on craigslist the other day and I hope that you find the humor in it like I did. Somewhere between a bar and her house, she lost her shoe...and this is her desperate plea for it to come back:
Not sure what lies in store this weekend...but if its good, be assured that there will be pictures on Monday.

If you're into really weird things, check this out...
I took a picture with my camera phone of the lovely bouquet of flowers that Jeff gave me last night as I was leaving his house. The evening started with him making me a dinner of pork tenderloin, asparagus, salad, and sparkling juice. He then took me to a little cafe in downtown Palo Alto for dessert. I guess he liked his pajama pants because as soon as he took them out of the bag, he put them on and wore them the rest of the night. All in all, the evening was a huge success; he wins the prize for giving me the best Valentines Day gifts I've ever received.

Have you ever been woken up at 6:30 am by the roar of a 4 wheeler going by your tent? Instead of spending the weekend in lovely Pismo Beach where I thought I was going, I was actually at Oceano Dunes Recreational Area. And I thought I would be laying out on some awesome beach. ha!
Jeff nicknamed it the "Redneck Riviera" and commented that this past weekend was the "Most Redneck" weekend he'd ever spent. I wish I could have said the same.
This picture doesn't show that the beach is right there, but it didn't really matter that the ocean met the sand since the area where one would sun themselves was instead a highway of ATVs, large trucks, and RVs. I never thought I'd be driving my new car on the beach, but I was mistaken. Despite my lack of love for camping and four wheeling, it was a fun weekend filled with good people; don't get me wrong...I had a good time. It was just VERY different from what I thought it would be.

I would like to take the opportunity to tell all of you that it has been in the 70s here in San Francisco for the past 3 days and when I walked outside this morning at 5:45, it was already 57. OH my goodness. Yesterday I went down to the beach and even though the sun was already almost gone, it was AMAZING.
This is a pic that I took of myself lying on a blanket in the sand. ahhhhhh
