I left my heart in San Diego

I love spending a long weekend every July in San Diego!  It is such a treat for us to come down here and enjoy the amazing weather and city.

Or first day is pretty straight forward, Yard House for lunch, check in at hotel and off to Coronado!  We scored this year with our hotel, the Marriott Gas Lamp via Priceline.   The hotel is right by Petco Park and overlooks the water.  We stayed on the 21st floor with a view into the stadium, Coronado Bridge and the Convention Center.  The Padres were playing both nights-an added bonus. 

 My first trip to CA was to Coronado Island when I was 12 and I fell in love.  This is such a special spot!  Marco and I can’t wait until we can rent one of the cabanas with friends for the weekend.  Once the sun set we headed to Miguel’s for Mexican.  They are one of the ONLY restaurants out here that has cheese dip.  I was in hog heaven!  After stuffing our faces and drinking margaritas we headed back to the hotel and were off to bed.

Friday morning we headed to Old Town.  I love that it feels like you are in Mexico.  They have tile galore which makes me smile.  {I am totally my mother’s daughter on this one}.  We stopped for an early lunch which consisted of more Mexican and margaritas at Fred’s.  They have the best patio area and Marco would say the best margarita’s too.  After lunch we headed back to the Gas Lamp district to walk around. 

For dinner we headed to Oceanaire.  It was amazing!!  We sat next to Renee Russo who was in town a week early for Comi-Con and saw a couple get engaged!  We had such a great time drinking champagne and eating seafood.  It was the perfect way to spend my birthday weekend!

Anyone who knows me well will laugh at this picture.  Why? I'll save it for another post.
Saturday morning we packed up and headed back to LA.  It was a wonderful trip and I can’t wait until next year.
