my husband and I took advantage of the musicals during theaterfest and saw Godspell on sunday night. beautiful show! we got a cheap hotel room at the svensgaard jodge, which was modest and adorable with delicious danishes fresh every morning. there are plenty of places to eat and some of them are ridiculously expensive and some are just right. the places with cheap food also have delicious food. so not once did we feel like we had to pay a lot for a better experience or whatever. the nine million bakeries became art galleries to us. the book store and museums and what not were fun and we ended up buying a lot of books for the baby. we got massages and met some wonderful people along the way. i had a blast and i didn’t spend a crap load of money. sure there are places to go to spend lots of money. for instance, IZOD. WTF?! who shops at IZOD when they are on vacation?! sad thing is, i saw a lot of people walking around with IZOD bags. i don’t understand. you can go to almost any outlet near home and shop at IZOD or go online, but noooo, all the money they COULD spend on Solvang-specific adventures… they spend at IZOD. whatever. consumer whores. god bless america.
i had a blast and i am so glad i live not too far away. we are already thinking of doing another trip up there before the baby comes around. i found an aura photographer and thought it would be neat to take a pic of me while i was still pregnant. and do one with me and my husband too. yay fun!
