Seoul 10 hr layover

So I just realized that I am leaving for Thailand tomorrow and I have yet to plan my 10 hours in Korea. I think I'm going to stay late at work tonight and print a bunch of info on Seoul so I can read and plan on the plane. But it should be really fun as I have no clue about any history of Korea other then that the South and North don't get along, I do not know ANY Korean, I am as white as they get, and I have 10 hours to go to town, site see, eat, and make it back for my flight to Thailand. I have a feeling this will be an interesting adventure... I wouldn't say I am scared about this idea I am merely amused with myself and wish I had a camera following me so I can watch it later and laugh at my reactions to all of the unknown that will be presented during these 10 hours...

Now what are the chances that a very cute, tall and funny man will have the same layover and be as adventurous and we will have a 10 hour romance in a completely foreign world? Damn I should have gone to church this Sunday and prayed for this! Tonight you can find me kneeling bedside saying 100 Hail Mary’s and praying to God for a cute, tall and funny man to wonder around Seoul, Korea with on Wednesday!

New Year

I would like to reflect back on how I welcomed this new year of 2009! I was fortunate enough to be able to stay in California for 2 whole weeks! Spending the first week with my family in Southern Cali and spending the second in South Lake Tahoe. It was great to be able to eat wigilia with my mom, dad, brother and cousins and to be able to stuff our faces all over again Christmas day! I don't think there was a moment where I actually felt hungry as I would be shoving something in my mouth making sure that feeling would never come. I am very grateful to be able to indulge like this and know that not many people are as lucky as I am to have a polish mama around to cook and bake these delicious treats! Its also funny how I feel my mama is most satisfied when everyone is sitting around the table, eating platefuls of the food she took such care in preparing!

South Lake Tahoe was a blast! There were over 30 of us in 4 different locations! Some where staying in kirkwood, some in the casinos, some in a huge cabin/house, and my group was in a condo appx. a mile from the strip! We had a new place to party every night and new years eve was spent at a local pub just off the strip to avoid the massive crowds of drunken youth! I was able to get in 3 AMAZING days on the slopes. The weather was unreal and I was riding down the mountain grinning from ear to ear taking in the breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe from atop Heavenly Mountain. I don't think there is any place like this in the world and if there is I hope I get to ride it one day!

Now I am about a week and a half into reality and still each night go home to check my facebook to see if anyone has posted new pictures or new comments from Lake Tahoe. My room is a mess and I have yet to start to pack for my Thailand trip which is in exactly a week!
