San Diego: USS Midway

Large and very impressive USS Midway Aircraft Museum is a must see thing even if you're not a military fan. There is a huge flight deck with real planes, jets and helicopters, real naval aircraft carrier that served in the United States Navy for 47 years. I couldn't stop taking pictures so here is only the "small part" :)

You can actually walk into and even sit in the cockpits of some planes!

I loved wandering through the ship, climbing and touring the various levels, imagining the way things were when it was not dry docked. You need plenty of time to wander the ship as it is much larger than it appears and there is tons of things you need to see!  
 And don't forget the amazing view :)

Time in Columbus

I'm late with my post...again...but I'm really busy lately which is good :)
Here are last shots from Columbus; I had some free time which was perfect for visiting the gallery after that much shopping and food. So I went to Columbus Museum of Art to see collections of European and American Modernism... but he only interesting thing for my taste was Toulouse-Lautrec's Paris and beautiful interior!
The next thing on the list was Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens which was a great place to spend few relaxing hours! You can walk through a variety of the biomes, including tropical rain forrest, the desert, Himalayas...and spectacular palm house.

Feeding time in Ohio

Yes, I will post all the embarrassing faces I make when enjoying great food.
Let's start with the perfect grill for me :)

I went to all three La Chatelaine French bakery&bistro's for delicious breakfast with cozy fireplace, stocked bookshelves, quiet atmosphere, and no one pushing you to leave. 
After judging I was usually exhausted so I went for best fast food in the town. My best ever was definitely sandwich with smoked brisket!  

I love to take pictures with all the food on the table :) 
And more funny shots :)

Arnold 2014

I finally have real update :) Will postpone other post until I'm finished with my trip to Arnold. 

Here we are, three blondes who had a great time in Columbus Ohio. Linda was competing, Maggie was her support and I was wearing suit this time. I finally began my "judging career"with the IFBB amateur class competitors! 
There was huge crowd at the expo but I've managed to break through and got a photo with my favorite girls, the biggest Monique Jones and lovely Amanda Dunbar. They are both amazing women!    

Here is my best friend John who had a tough weekend with all the fun we had. He was our chauffeur with tight schedule, dinner planner, shopping assistant...  We couldn't do it without him :)

And here is one of the highlight of the Arnold - The Party :)
They had amazing pile of sweets, anything you can imagine! I could even burn my munch mellow! So cool :D We danced till the end and leave with lots of the balloons, stuffing them all into the car...
