So I've decided to take my Labor Day Weekend trip a week earlier, and I'm hitting the road tomorrow to head down to Carlsbad, California. My friend Kristen just moved there with her fiance Mike, so I'm going to visit their new crib and hit the waves at Tamarack and Moonlight Beach (you've been warned San Diego surfers; steer clear of the girl with the yellow surfboard). I'm looking forward to paddling out in warmer waters, enjoying the sunshine, and good times with friends.
I'm also looking forward to the drive down there itself. I love taking road trips, but since becoming a "responsible adult" (whatever), I haven't been able to get out as much, so this is a nice treat. And guess what happened to arrive on my desk this week? The
