San Diego Weekend: July 9th- July 12th

Tadd and I went to San Diego for a long weekend as I was in a wedding. My best friend from 5th grade got married at a beautiful location in San Diego, the Dana. Therefore, the weekend was full of fun events. It included…

Thursday: Hanging out with my sister, Jill, who was such a great host and let us use her car, sleep in her bed and eat her food! (Love you Jill)
Attending the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner for the wedding. We ate at Pizza Nova, which was delicious and we got a beautiful combination set of pearls from the bride, Whitney, for our gift! (Thanks Whitney)
Seeing our friends James, Jill, Scott and Kristin at their beach house late Thursday night, and of course their kids and watching fireworks!

Friday: Tadd went deep sea fishing with James and Scott. He got up at 4:30am to go on this boating adventure. They caught lots of fish and had a nice manly outing!
I went to the wedding location around 2pm and hung out in the bride’s room and got ready alogn with the bride, her sisters and the bridesmaids. After we were all ready, we took lots and lots of pictures, which I am excited to see. Then the wedding! It started at 5:30 and it was such a beautiful setting on the grass overlooking palm trees and the water. Very pretty ceremony. The bride looked beautiful and her husband looked pretty excited and good as well!
After the ceremony, we took more pictures and then proceeded to the cocktail hour and the introductions into the reception. We ate dinner, listened to toasts, watched them dance, ate cake and had a great night. One bummer though, Tadd did not feel well all evening, either due to some food from earlier in the day, the medicine that he took before the boat ride or something else. But that was a bummer cuz you know Tadd loves to dance and he did not get to enjoy much of that! We ended the evening around 11:30 and headed back to the hotel, with which we shared with my parents!!!

Saturday: Tadd and I were able to have lunch with James and Jill and their three kids which was really great since we have not been able to see them for a while. They made such a great effort to see us and we were very grateful to spend time with them!
After breakfast, we headed to the Horton Plaza Mall. We shopped around, I got a belt, two headbands and two pairs of sandals. We then ate at a burger joint which was pretty yummy, shopped a little bit more then headed back. We lounged a bit, did some homework, and got ready for dinner. For dinner we went to our favorite spot, the Fish Market. My family has gone there for basically every occasion when we lived in San Diego and it seems to be a reoccuring theme every time we visit SD. Love it! We then ate some frozen yogurt…I got pistachio and coconut…YUM! We then said our goodbyes as we would not see Jill and Lindsay (my cousin) any more!

Sunday: Mom and Dad to head to Miami and let us use the rental car to drive to Rancho Penasquitos to visit Tadd’s aunt and uncle. We went to church with them at 9am and then headed back to their place to enjoy some quality time with them. We ate some lunch, hung with the kids and chatted with Karyn and Jeff. We looked at a house they are contemplating over and then enjoyed some dinner and further conversation before we headed to the airport to head back home!
