  1. Oriental Brewery (OB) beer, consumed in O.B. (Ocean Beach). The name becomes far more funny after several bottles.

    OB Beer.

  2. Peyton Manning on a cereal box.

    You dont take a single photo of us and our hosts in Scotland, but you take one of Peyton Manning on a cereal box? Thats just great.

  3. Unintentionally ironic display in OB grocery store.

    Apparently tobacco counts as a vegetable.

  4. I do some charity for the elderly …

    In which I help my uncle with his cell phone issues.

    ... and help my uncle with his "piece-of-shit cell phone."

  5. There’s no way I’m eating “those”.

    Dyssentary usually comes cheaper than a dollar, anyway.

    Why pay a dollar for dyssentary when you can get it for free on the sidewalk?


  6. The most expensive property in La Jolla. My cousin explained that the land on which these cottages are built is worth millions. A developer bought it, hoping to put up condos, but the city declared the buildings historical, meaning they can’t be torn down. So they’ve been sitting, unrenovated and virtually abandoned, for years.

    The view was, no joke, spectacular.

  7. Seals in La Jolla. Originally the retaining wall in the background was built to block in part of the ocean, creating a tidal swimming pool for kids back in the 1930s (environmental consequences be damned). It later fell into disrepair, and the seals took over, using the cove as a place where they could rest with their new pups.

    This is way cuter than children pooping their pants at the beach, anyway.

  8. Chocolate Cheerios.

    Eaten for the very first time in California, they proved to be a revelation.

  9. Man-made cave on the beach, La Jolla

    Personally, I like to think of it as a deluxe hobo toilet.

  10. Recovering with Dharmesh, Pho King Restaurant, San Diego

    In which we clearly look as though we have been on a bender.

  • 11 years. You have made my life what it is, Rand.
  • When you find out that @britneymuller has surreptitiously been taking photos of your butt on her phone.
Me: Why.
Her: Because it's perfect.
*swoon*
❤️❤️❤️
  • Hair toss, check my nails. Baby how you feeling? Thirty-nine as hell.
  • Me: You cannot go to sleep at 10pm EST.
Him: Watch me.
  • I didn't do nearly all that I set out to do today. But I had a lovely dinner thanks to this man and some excellent out of town guests. So perhaps the measure of a day isn't always about that damn checklist. (Maybe. Ask me again tomorrow when all the stress hits me. 🤔😅)
  • You can't expect things to look *exactly* like the picture in the cookbook. But sometimes they do anyway. #alisonroman #diningincookbook #diningin #cocoabananabread #instadesserts #baking
  • Here it is, folks. The paperback edition of my book is out today. The hardcover came out more than two years ago, so it's wonderful to know that this story of mine still has life and is, gasp, still selling copies. Don't miss the book that Lauren Graham called "the travel companion you'll be happy you brought along" and that some guy on Twitter said was "immature and stupid." It's available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Indiebound. #bookstagram #summerreading #bookworms
  • This lady. ❤️❤️❤️ So proud of her.
  • HAPPY LAUNCH DAY!! I really want to curl up in bed with this amazing novel today, but I can't - for an amazing reason. Because I'm going to be at the Lake Forest Park location of Third Place Books tonight, discussing it with the author, my dear friend @andreadunlop. Lady, I'm so proud of you. ❤️ ❤️❤️ #bookstagram #summerreading
  • Baking in an AirBnB is always an adventure. I didn't have a measuring cup for the flour so I eyeballed it, and had to use a wine bottle as a rolling pin to make these handpies. Not my best work, but @demeritt and @randderuiter seemed cool with the results, so I'm going to accept that sometimes good enough is, well, enough. 🥧🍴

Buy my book and I promise I'll never ask you for anything again.

BE AWESOME. BUY IT.
