Weekend in San Diego

Hi everyone! Sorry for my lack of posting over the weekend and yesterday. I meant to post yesterday but got a sub job at the last minute. I subbed as an instructional aide for a seventh grader. So much fun! All of the kids are participating in a baby experiment and have flour sacks, eggs, or robotic crying babies with them in class. Hilarious.

Except for when one of the girls piped up with, "Babies are easy, I should have a real one!" Not at 13 please.

Enough about that. We left for San Diego on Friday night. We usually leave really late to avoid traffic. Unfortunately my Irish luck rubbed off on both of us and it rained as soon as we got in the car. The rain was so heavy and thick! Poor Andy could barely see to drive. Not fun.

022

Saturday morning, I forced Andy to take me out to get some pills. I had the worst congested head feeling and did not sleep well at all on Friday night. Well, we happened to be RIGHT by the Original Pancake House...so...

024

I ordered bacon & eggs. Split 2 pieces of bacon with Andy because I am a fantasic and selfless wife.

025

Andy ordered blueberry pancakes. (You can see my side of Potato Pancakes in the distance.) Andy's blueberry pancakes were so light and delicious...I was envious of them the entire time.

After breakfast, we went to the gym with Andy's mom. Her gym was huge! The treadmill there had a setting for a 5k so I tried it out for shiggles. I wasn't feeling my hottest but I managed to finish in 44 minutes. My goal for my first 5k is under 40 minutes. Considering how much I walked, I think this might actually be a possibility!

026

Dinner was at a diner near San Diego State where we were going to a basketball game. I had to snap a picture of the menu in order of Sophia aka Burp & Slurp.

028

And let's discuss the size of my turkey bacon avocado sandwich. Really? REALLY? I took out 90% of the turkey and half the avocado and still had too much food. It was delicious!

029

Andy ordered a reuben, which wasn't nearly as huge!

031

Then we were off to the basketball game.

034

The Aztec Warrior walked around and took pictures with fans. His costume was amazing.

All & all it was a fantastic trip. Minus my congestion. Blech.

How was your weekend?

Have you been to San Diego?

My head slightly exploded at the thought of 13year olds needing baby experience classes. Good lord! I think at 13 I was just becoming slightly less obsessed with my barbies. Sex and boys were not even on the radar.

That sandwich is outta control! But looks oh so yummy. :)

Where did you get that sandwich and is it worth me driving the 30 minutes to SD to get it? OMG NOM!

That sandwich is a thing of beauty. Way too much meat though. Looked like an awesome trip. I need a getaway too. Soooooooon I will force one. My brain will thank me!

That turkey bacon avocado is calling my name! When I was reading the top of your post, I was thinking it amazing that at 13 there were a few that already did have their own kids. And to that 13 year old, a sack of flour does not equal a baby. Sacks of flour don't nurse 10 times a day and twice in the middle of the night and don't need to have their clothes changed 7 times a day because they've leaked through their diapers!

That sandwich is CRAZY!!!

You can definitely rock that 5K! I'm so excited for you :)

I have never been to San Diego but I hope to get out that way sometime. The farthest West that I have ever been is Colorado and Las Vegas ;-)

Sounds like you had a great weekend other than not feeling well.
I have family in San Diego and it's so fun to visit.
Have you ever been to Desserts Extradonnaire? It's soo yummy and a really cool place to hang out.

OMG that sammie looks amazing!!!!! I would love a bite of it.

HAHA I love the Slurp and Burp on the menu...Sophia is taking over the world!

When I go to SD to visit my cousin, I am going to give you a call...we need to go for a run together since we ARE training together lol

Love the recap Amanda!! I would be all over Andy's sammie - loves me a reuben.

44 minutes is a good time on the treadmill for a 5k - you go girl!!

I've never even been to California, let alone San Diego - jealous!

Here's my post with Hannah's "baby!"

I know San Diego is a hop skip and a jump from LA but I never seem to make it down there. Sounds like you had a nice weekend and mmm mmm mmm pancakes! I hope an SD trip is in my near future!

Oh, we love the Original Pancake House, there is one close to us but it's always so busy we have to plan on an hour wait. I've been to San Diego for a wedding when I lived in San Francisco but didn't get to see much.

That sandwich is so INSANE! Who could even get their mouth around that thing?

And you really need to get better soon!
