After our trip down main street we set off on a drive and made it to the next town over, Gualala. We found a restaurant there and had dinner. We weren't totally impressed by the restaurant, but I loved how the butter was served (it's in an oyster shell).

This was my first brand new car and I'll miss it a little, but I know my mom will take good care of it.

Loading up on lots of taffy.

Awesome hat store. Just check out those glittery hats behind me!

We also found this awesome kite store. Notice the black and white cat kite on the right. It was my favorite.
This is outside the Schoolhouse Museum.

Today we are driving to Sacramento to take care of something and my parents graciously offered to get us a hotel room with my dad's reward points. Most people wouldn't be too thrilled about a night in Sacramento, but I'm really excited. We're staying near Old Sacramento so we'll be able to walk around and do fun things. We're also going to try to go to a couple of places that have been on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. The other day I was bored and looked up all of the places that the host has been to in Northern California. There are a little over 20. I'm determined to visit all of them at some point.
Yesterday I had a wonderful surprise at work. An older couple walked in with a huge display of roses and I immediately thought "Oh, they must be for Pam (my boss)." Then they asked if I was Megan and they said the flowers were for me. I honestly thought "who sent me these?" After reading the sweet card it became quite clear. It said "Happy 1st date anniversary. I wish we could go to Kilkenny's and sit next to each other."
The reason I was so surprised though was because on Wednesday I got a call from Jake when he was on his way home from Costco and he said he had three surprises for me. He told me one of them was a box of Brita filters so I wasn't too excited about the rest, but then he walked through the door with flowers and a microwave! I was so shocked by the roses because I wasn't expecting to receive flowers twice in one week!

On Saturday Jake went golfing and I hung out with my friend Erin. We went to lunch and then walked around Fashion Show Mall. I met Jake back at the hotel and we went to see Dear John. Great movie. After that Jake met up with Frank and Rick and went to dinner. I had plans to meet up with my friend Katy Beth for dinner at 8. We also had plans to meet a bunch of people at a club at Red Rock after our dinner, but we found out while we were eating that the club was mysteriously closed. We ended up just meeting everyone at Erin's house and hung out. I was a little disappointed we didn't get to go dancing, but it was a lot of fun catching up with everyone.
On Sunday Jake and the guys went to set up the memorabilia show (the whole reason we went to Vegas). I went to work out and then met them down at the show so I could get some free food. I hung around for a bit, but went back up to the room after a while because football isn't really my thing. I watched Sleepless in Seattle and took a nap.
We stopped at Mad Greek in Baker, CA on the way back. We've been there before because I saw it on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives a long time ago. It was kind of unusual to eat a gyro at 9:30 in the morning, but it was still delicious. Jake's shirt was the same color as the bench. It was picture worthy.

I'll be back soon with a recap of our Las Vegas weekend. It was a lot of fun!

I haven't read my photoshop book yet, but that didn't stop me from attempting to do some things. Last weekend we went to the lake to take pictures and I've been working on making them pretty. Please don't laugh at my novice skills.
My mom made this scarf for Sydney. Isn't it the cutest thing ever? I'm trying to convince her to make a little hat now.
