Why I love San Diego

Tuesday, March 23, 2010
...because of views like this! I'm not mad here - I am just squinting from the bright warm sun that is apparently foreign in Utah. We are headed to LA tomorrow to check out USC for a second (...for me, and an hour for him) and then we're on the road again. In the meantime, check out another interview at myla rose!

I just got back from meeting with Kelsey from Courageous Mother. We've been e-mailing for a while and so it was great to finally meet her in person!! She is so funny and so sweet. We've already planned our second date in the summer. (Debye, we missed you!)

  1. just found you through Freshly Picked.
    Loving your site.
    Loving your bangs.
    Love Calif (we just moved to TX and I miss it at times...mostly the beach).
    Wish (only slightly) that I lived in Utah, to come to your Bloggers Meet-up. Looked like a fun night!

  38. Such a beautiful view of the ocean. It's the perfect backdrop for your wonderful skirt.

    I didn't enter your watch giveaway (which opened on my b-day) because I didn't know how to create a blogroll. Today I learned how simple it is to do that!!! I feel like a dope. Anyway, I'll be ready next time--and you'll already be in my blogroll by then. =)

    Have a great return trip!
