Celebrating 25 Years!

This is our big year and we are celebrating big! Our plan is 25 small getaways and new restaurants over the next few months. Here's what we've done so far!

1. Cresent Bay Park, Laguna Beach. January. Picnic Dinner before our nephews basketball game.

2. Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) February. You can read all about it here.

3. Disneyland and California Adventure  March. We did it all on a sunny day in March...corndogs, characters, pirates, guacamole and margaritas in Downtown Disney, parades, dulche de leche ice cream, Grand Californian for piano music, people watching, World of Color, car races, elevator rides, Storm Troopers, Buzz and Woody. All followed by a good night's rest! (Thanks Uncle Dewey for signing us in!)

4. Pasa Robles, CA  March. Weekend Trip that included, Hiking, Farmer's Market and Wine Tasting.

5. Swallows Inn Bar, San Juan Capistrano. Dive bar, Monday night Country Dancing. We definitely need to take lessons!

6. San Diego Hilton Mission Bay They were kind enough to upgrade us to a suite!  Fillippis Pizza for dinner-not a separate entry because we have been there several times :) Walking at Mission Beach. **Even with the upgrade, next time I'd stay someplace else (the hotel is a bit tired and in need of a little fluffing).

7. The Carnitas Snack Shack, San Diego....Amazing. Triple Threat Pork Sandwich, Carnitas Tacos, Guacamole and Chips, Chocolate Bread Pudding and Butterscotch Creme de Pot. "Our line is our sign." Totally worth the wait!

8. Southpaw Social Club at the Padres Stadium gate. We loved the tritip sandwich (from their Saturday BBQ) and the garlic flatbread!

9. Jimmy's Famous American Tavern (JFAT) A new favorite. Happy hour i the whole place starts at 3pm. Don't miss the meatballs and the sliders
