Hi all, just a quick check in. I'm alive and well. Since we last talked I have been to
- San Diego, California (met San Diego John, he is such an awesome and fun guy!)
- Scottsdale, Arizona
- Sedona, Arizona (off road jeep riding, so fun!)
- Grand Canyon
- Las Vegas, Nevada
And now I am sitting in LAX waiting for my friends flight to arrive from London. I have been in the USA for 2 weeks now, and I have another 5 days left. I have had the most amazing times and seen amazing things. Vegas was so, so fun, I danced until 4am 2 days in a row. I loved it and didn't want to leave! I would go there again in a heart beat. The grand canyon was amazing, I did a helicopter flight over the canyon and it was indescribable. I feel so lucky that I am able to do this trip and to see and do so much!
I have done so much shopping that it isn't even funny. Clothes and shoes here are so cheap, and then I discovered Ross (OMG Ross!) and I just went a little mental. $15 Calvin Klein pants, nuff said. I got a pair of sketchers shoes for $30, and they are $130 in NZ! I ended up buying a carry on bag, and it is full of nothing but new clothes, and my suitcase is full. I will never need to clothes shop again!
A quick weight update: my clothes still fit fine, but I'm feeling a little flabby, probably from a lack of ST. I'm getting plenty of exercise with all the walking (and dancing) I'm doing, but ST is missing in a big way. I was weighed for the helicopter flight and I was 146lb fully dressed, so 143lb without clothes etc (approx). All scales are of course different, but since that is less that what I weighed when I got here I think that I have probably maintained my weight since being here.
So that's what I have been up to. Will try and upload a photo blog right after i post this just in case anyone is interested in seeing pictures of me in different locations.
I miss SP, will be back to it in a week!
