Birthday Week in Carlsbad

Matt and I traveled to Carlsbad, Ca the week before my birthday as Maria had secured a week for us at a timeshare there!!!  It was wonderful.  We had a lovely kitchen and living room that looked out on the grounds and on to the ocean!  Matt had his own special privacy with a curtain that pulled across in back of the living room.  He had lots of space there.


I had a large bedroom with a lovely dressing table and large closets.  In between us was a fantastic bathroom.

The grounds were lovely with a great Jacuzzi outside that I used several times!!  And at the ocean end you could walk down the stairs, cross the driveway and go down more stairs to a beautiful beach that was clean and uncrowded!!

Every day we had someone else to eat with and somewhere to go.  On the first night Matt and I joined Maria in the Jacuzzi after having wonderful pot roast!!

The next morning Kelly invited to go get a pedicure and manicure with her.  At night I saw the movie "Selma" with Linda and Gary and then had wonderful grassfed? hamburgers at a new restaurant.

Saturday I went to Nordstroms with Sarah and Linda as Sarah shopped for a new dress for an upcoming dance.  I bought a new pair of jeans after seeing me in a mirror!  That night Matt and I had fish and chips with Maria in Oceanside.

On Sunday I went to church with the Pulsiphers and had a steak dinner after and then later I went to the parents of Johnny for his birthday party in University City.

  It was near where Richard and I lived when Johnny and Linda were babies.  Sue had her wonderful salad again plus all kinds of delicious food.  It was fun.  Johnny and his sister Michelle get the giggles together, it is so fun to watch.

Monday I saw "American Sniper" with James and had lunch.  And finally there was time to take a walk on the beach and then another movie with James "Black Hat"?--I did not like that one so much but we went to the movies all three times at the theaters with the lounge seat.  Very cool.

Tuesday, Matt and I met Meagan, Keira and Eden at UTC, our old shopping area between La Jolla and University City.  They have added a lot of things so it was a fun afternoon.  First we had lunch at the skating rink area.  I ate a fish taco.

And then we went to play!  More in the next blog.
