    Good Luck on your race! This post made me hungry!! It so pretty up there. I was there a few years ago and forgot how beautiful it really is.
    Have fun!

    Welcome to Monterey!!! I’m a 45 minute drive north, but Monterey is a common weekend spot for me. In fact, two Tuesdays from now I’m driving/chaperoning my son’s Monterey Bay Aquarium school field trip! I don’t care how old I am, I’ll always have a great time there. Especially when they have the penguins. I’m a sucker for penguins. ;) Check out Carmel if you have the time! It’s so cute– the houses all have names, not numbers. Totally cute! Hope you and Ben have a great time up here!!

    Glad I’m not the only one who loves Popcorn Jelly Belly…everyone else thinks I’m gross!
    Also, if I could eat a Tollhouse Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich every day of my life, I would be the happiest person alive. Those are the best. thing. ever.

    If you get a chance eat at Hulus behind Cannery Row. When my bf was stationed at the Presidio we ate there frequently. It was delicipus. Good luck today!

    Hahahahaha I would have never thought of that, but I can see what you’re saying about Jason Segel. You don’t realllly look like him, but you guys have the same eye color/ similarly shaped eyes. Hilarious either way.

    Monterey looks gorgeous! My brother is there for training (he’s in the Army) so now I really know what it looks like. He never mentioned an aquarium.. I’ll have to ask him about why that is. He knows I love otters and sea animals!

    Looks like a good time!

    I have to ask (it’s bugging me!) What are the red stars for next to the various foods to avoid?

    Monterey looks great. Despite living in San Diego for 9 years, I’ve never been north of Victorville. It’s on my list, but hasn’t happened yet. Maybe I’ll plan a race up that way!
