Photo overload: pretty pretty!

Had a most spontaneous past few days and I'm loving it! Ended up at the Monterey Bay Aquarium on Wednesday and got very inspired. Check my flickr account in the next couple days since I took over 300 photos in 3 hours!

I really like the silhouetted look with the window of jellies:
Add lots of mirrors for a cool reflection:
The most beautiful jellies ever from the Mediterranean:
And just for good measure, what sand dollars look like when they are living on the ocean floor:
Stopped by the shopping mall to pick up the Europe walking shoes. They aren't as cute as I was hoping but they are super comfy!
Goofed off with Jessica on Thursday. She got called for an interview while at my house. Sending lots of good vibes for it!

Friday was very exciting for me. I made some much needed purchases due to a well-timed REI sale. I was so excited I brought my purchases into the Scrapbook Depot to share with all the scrappers. I'm so happy with my backpack. Can you tell? And Kristi was there. We had the bestest time ever. Drove to Los Altos to meet my old pal Will. Notice a theme? Everyone is so excited about my trip they want to hang out one last time! We went hiking in near Santa Cruz at the Castle Rock State Park for 2.5 miles. Will enjoys climbing and jumping into the rocks for a quick pose.
And a very cool "cave" painting that I found very inspiring.
Had a very special birthday celebration dinner tonight at the Francos. We hang spoons in our spare time.
So I want to wish Jeff a very Happy Birthday! He turns 25 on Monday. Hope your day is as great as tonight!

Oh my! That first photo in front of the jellyfish tank is BEAUTIFUL! And, I loved seeing the sand dollars. I don't think I've ever seen them before they wash up dead on the shore. I love, love, love aquariums! If I'm ever visiting somewhere that has one, it is a guaranteed stop. Thanks for sharing! Oh, and, check my blog from yesterday. ;0)
