More date night fun!

We had fun adding to our list this week. We took two trips this week! We took a day trip to the Del Mar Area for some shopping and then we had a date night at Newport Coast.

10. For our shopping trip, we headed south to the the Carlsbad outlets. We love this small outdoor shopping site. It's just north of San Diego and right around the corner from Legoland. After a morning of shopping, we headed south to one of our favorites, The Carnitas Shack in North Beach. (We noticed they are opening a new location near Del Mar-yeah!!) This time we enjoyed the Carnitas Poutine Fries. Heaven-such deliciousness!

11. After lunch, we headed over to The Grand Del Mar, Trip advisor's number-one rated hotel in the US. While it didn't live up to that standard (really, that's a huge claim) , it is a lovely hotel with incredible staff. The grounds were beautiful too. We had planned on staying for Happy Hour but instead enjoyed some decadent desserts.

12. Date Night, Crystal Cove, Newport Beach, California.We started with drinks and appetizers at Javiers. The bar patio area was so relaxing that we stayed and ended up having dinner :) After dinner, we walked and shopped. There are so many fun little stops!

13. And then, on the recommendation of a friend, we ended up at Maestros for Butter Cake. The place was packed, even on a Tuesday night, but we found a spot in the bar at the piano. What a treat! Not only did we indulge in an over-the-top dessert, but had front row seats at private concert. The singer and keyboard guy were so talented. And with ocean views it was perfect!
