I am buried in work this week–and I didn’t even truly take a break when we went to La Jolla last week. I continued working through the week–but at least I got to work on the beach and take lots of fun breaks. We traveled so much this summer (as you all know!), so I’m just happy to be back home for the foreseeable future and get back into my cooking routine!
This week I made this and it has lasted us throughout the week with a nice summer side salad. Next week I plan on getting back into my baking groove and picking it up in the meal planning department. All in due time! I’m back at it on the yoga mat, so there’s that! (hey yoga girl!) <– watch that, thank me later.
Oh, so La Jolla! It was a really fun 6 days of getting some work done paired with beach time, family time, awesome food, beach walks, a hike and celebrating my husband’s birthday! I’m adding a lot of new restaurants to my La Jolla list up there in the navigation bar under Where To Eat! Let’s allow the photos to do most of the talking, shall we?
[a beautiful high tide dinner at Marine Room to celebrate Ryan's birthday]
[one of our new favorites-- Etude's Pinot Noir pre-birthday dinner]
[my first taste of Cristal--thanks to Ryan's mom's sweet birthday gift + incredible black and white cake from here]
[it's not La Jolla without ice cream on the beach…and it comes half melted.]
[a delicious stone fruit prosciutto salad at Herringbone]
[beach time in La Jolla is significantly more fun with him by my side]
[who doesn't love birthdays? showing off his champagne + Bose portable speakers]
[in love with this hacienda style home we stay in right across from LJBTC]
[brunch at Snooze-- my caprese benedict. hell. yes.]
[view from our hike up Torrey Pines State Reserve]
[just a little sampling of the fresh fruit that wakes us up each morning in LJ. Thanks Nana!]
[I believe this is what heaven looks like. A fun beach dinner with friends--rose is always a yes.]
[we made the most out of an overcast, wet sand day. margarita time!]
Hope you all have a great evening!
