Root, root, root for the home team!

Last night a friend had Padres' tickets and invited us along for the game.  It was awesome!  We had parking just across the street, great seats, and the Padres' won!  It was fun, action-packed game with a great double-play ending.  Since it will probably be our last game here in San Diego, it was the perfect game to go out on!

Making friends and seeing sights

I recently made a new friend (another Navy wife!) and we've hung gotten together a few times recently. Since we know neither of us will be in San Diego for very long, we decided we might as well take advantage of living in a beautiful city while we're still here, so we've visited cute little coffee shops, meandered around Coronado, and this week spent an afternoon at Balboa Park!  It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed the free Tuesday museum entrance.  We're hoping to get to see a little more this pretty city, before the military sends us somewhere new!

 Sunshine and palm trees.. ah San Diego!

 A Fra Angelico!

Since we were so close, we had to pay a visit to "Extraordinary Desserts"- the most amazing little dessert place in town!

I love my husband!  After a crazy week at work where he was never home before 7pm and a Saturday spent cleaning the house, he spent the evening making a lovely, romantic dinner, complete with candles! As an unplanned but still wonderful way to finish the evening we went out for a moonlit stroll with the dog and arrived just in time for a spectacular fireworks show going on just a few blocks away!

Saturday, September 10, 2011


Somehow, despite having several days off, this week was super busy and flew by before I had time to post.  So here are a few highlights from our incredibly exciting week....

 Spent the holiday shopping at the outlets... happy day!

Temperatures hit 100°.  Usually right about the time Starbucks brings out the Pumpkin Spice Latte, San Diego heats up!

Survived a blackout.  Candles and wine seemed a pretty good solution.

Started a new knitting project.  Because I didn't buy enough accessories while shopping, and I might need a scarf in 100° weather! 

 Cut my bangs.  Sometimes I get bored and need to do something exciting.  Bangs seemed a better idea than a tattoo.

In which we go bowling...

After a crazy busy week, we finally had some time to relax this weekend!  Slept in (a rare occurrence!) had lunch and a movie date, and finished the day off with a few games of bowling with a friend. 

Bowling.... let's just say we're not the greatest bowlers.  In our final game, Steve beat us by so much that not even our combined scores came close to his!  We thought about joining a league, "The league of couples who bowl very badly".   Hey, we had fun though!  

 Phil's grace and style at the bowling alley

 Steve's awesome bowling skills

 Yes, he got 3 strikes in a row.  Several times

Trying to roll my ball very slowly, in the hope that it would hit something!
