San Diego Recommendations?


Happy Birthday BenHe’s officially 29 today, so I’m no longer a cougar … just a slight snow leopard. πŸ˜‰ Head over to Instagram to see my mushy, gushy tribute to him.


For Ben’s birthday, I bought him plane tickets! Actually, fun story, I bought him tickets to Vancouver, then immediately regretted the purchase because I wasn’t even sure what he wants to do in Vancouver. Since I had 24-hours to get a refund on the tickets (THANK GOD), I told Ben about his gift a bit early and we decided to postpone that trip but bite the bullet on our San Diego trip! We found a good deal on tickets and it all worked out.

So now I’m going to San Diego, then up to Laguna Beach. We’re flying into San Diego and out of LAX, so we’ll be driving up the coast.


I’m also looking to work with brands in the area, find as many donut places as possible (we already have these two) …

So, you know, I’ve got the donut part figured out. πŸ˜‰

Any other recommendations? Even recommendations on how to work with brands? We’re going August 30 – September 5!

Even if you don’t have any recommendations, tell me about some travel hopes and dreams you have coming up!

    Um, Harry Potter World? You will have so much fun no matter what you do! When Graham and I used to go to San Diego we would pretty much stop in all the beach towns, you can’t go wrong: Coronado, Pacific Beach, Ocean Beach, La Jolla, etc.

      RIGHT. I needddd to go there. The snobby part of me wants to wait until Florida to go to the “bigger one,” but then I’m like – why not do both?! So excited for that! I think it’ll be fun. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the recs here (and on Twitter)!

    Donut Bar is a must! Also, I highly suggest going to Hotel Coronado and getting a drink at the outdoor bar. It’s so pretty there and it’s a beautiful, historic hotel. Have a great trip!

      SO EXCITED! I had never heard of it, but a friend on FB recommended it. Looks so good! Awesome, I’ll add that to my list! Thanks πŸ™‚

    When I was really little I went with my parents – i remember we went to the San Diego Zoo, I’ve always wanted to go back now that I’m older because I know it’s a good one!
