Thankful Things Thursdays: SoCal Travel Edition

Since yesterday I was a complainer, today I am going to try to be thankful. And since yesterday I stole my title from Kim, today I'll steal my title from Ali. Thanks for the inspiration ladies!

 Thankful Things Thursdays: SoCal Travel Edition

oh truffle pasta, I want you
1.  On this trip I'm accumulating a whole lot of frequent flier miles, and hotel and rental car points. I can use these later to go on vacation to some place super cool. I got my cousin and myself to Rome and our hotel for the whole trip all with points, so all my money was free to go towards pasta and gelato.

2. The hospital cafeteria has really good coffee, and with my employee discount it is only 72 cents. And people here wonder why I always have so much energy?

3. There are some very cool flowers that I get to walk by multiple times a day as I walk between my office and the hospital.

This one reminds me of a cool tropical bird.

4. Even though it's small and not fantastically equipped, there is hardly ever anyone in the hotel gym. So I can watch ABC Family and do funny exercises without embarrassment.

5. There is a plethora of self serve fro-yo places around. As with cereal I like to mix a little bit of everything into my ice cream. 7 flavors and 10 toppings? Yes please!

I ate kale salad for lunch. And now I am starving. I want this NOW.


  1. The flowers are "birds of paradise". They were blooming when I was in San Diego in November as well. Hmmm, I wonder if they bloom all year? Enjoy the rest of your time in SoCal!

  2. I have not been to one of those self serve fro-yo places! I wonder if they have any vegan fro-yo. LOL!

    1. They do! They usually have at least a couple vegan options.
