A great movie. Maybe it's just my love for sci-fi films, but I'm glad I went to see it the day before it left theaters. Limitless stars Bradley Cooper as a poor and unfocused writer living in New York, who, after trying a little clear pill he believes to be safe, is turned into a super-genius who can recall everything he has ever read, seen, or heard. Although this sounds like perfection, the stakes are suddenly raised, and life becomes a little complicated. Like most thriller movies, there's not a lot of depth or realism, but it is definitely worth renting.

The sun was out and we had a day off , so we headed for our beach house--the view was great!
Did I mention that our house has wheels on it?
The interior was in need of an update, so we threw on some fresh summer linens and all was well.
Everyone has their necessities when traveling...ours is the kitchen, especially the espresso maker.
We were blessed with such a beautiful day, and the best part was that it only took 20 minutes from our door to the ocean!

Here at The Rose, we love our music! We all have strong opinions of who we want to listen to, and who we don't want to listen to. One thing for sure is that we are all gaga for Lady Gaga! Our youngest here at The Rose, Yvonne, a junior at San Luis High (she has amazing style), was the lucky one to be able to see her perform live in L.A....and on Gaga's birthday no less!!!! Such a lucky girl she is. This is her story...
On March 28th Ryan Vasquez and I got the wonderful opportunity to see Lady Gaga at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. We couldn’t believe our luck that we were seeing one of our favorite artists (and Ryan’s number one obsession), but the fact that we saw her on her very own birthday was the cherry on top! Our trip got off to a rather bumpy start once Ryan realized he had forgotten the tickets just as we were approaching Goleta! But as soon as we quickly fetched them back in SLO and hit the road again we were even more excited! We rapidly got dressed in our outfits and after a few sessions of body-paint-splattering we left for the Staples Center. At the entrance there were hundreds of people dressed in the craziest outfits and many paparazzi and news casters! After entering the stadium and taking our seats the show began after an intro by Lady GaGa’s friends The Scissor Sisters. Once they were done everyone screamed as Mother Monster’s silhouette covered the stage. The whole performance was phenomenal and she even vowed to us that she never lip singed. Our favorite part was when she shared a birthday gift with us; she told us about receiving a pair of an original pair of ruby red slippers from the Wizard of Oz film! She gave an inspiring speech about trying out for the part of Dorothy as a young girl but a bully stole the spot, but she celebrated and was grateful that now she was the one with the slippers. It was a ten out of ten show and I wish it never ended!
