the Flower Fields

If you live in the San Diego area, then you definitely know what I am talking about when I say that this year feels like a record breaking year in terms of wildflowers and greenery.  San Diego has absolutely exploded with color these past few weeks, and I am loving it! Remember all of the […]

Butterfly Jungle

Last Friday I had the oh-so-joyful experience of getting to preview the Butterfly Jungle at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.  The hubs and I had gone once before a few years back, and have always talked about wanting to go back.  I had remembered it being a magical experience, and truthfully, it was even […]

Rainy Day Fun

I can’t hardly believe that I am writing this post, but here I am.  It’s raining, and you know what, it’s been raining a lot in San Diego lately.  So much so, that I have been asked frequently, “what do you do in San Diego when it’s raining?” Well, a lot of the time my […]


It had been a few years since we had last dined at Amaya at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar, but the memories we had of our last experience left us feeling very excited for a return visit.  We had visions of a lush hotel oozing with warm marble tones and sparkly chandeliers at every turn; […]

K1 Speed

Having grown up in a family with a deep love for go-karting, you can imagine my excitement when I heard that there was an indoor go-kart track just down the street from where we live.  I think my reaction was something like, “what?!?  when did they open?!?  how did I not know about it!?!?”  Yes, […]

Rose Garden

If you’re a San Diego local, then I’m hoping that you already know about one of Balboa Park’s best kept secrets, and if you don’t know, then let me clue you in…the Rose Garden.  Just off the main drag of Balboa Park is the cutest little (actually not that little) Rose Garden.  And right now […]

Greek Festival

Last night the Mr. and I went to San Diego’s Greek Festival.  It was such a great time…something I opa! you don’t miss! Everything on offer was great; the food, the wine, the amazing music and dancing!  It’s always so fun to take part in traditions of different cultures.  This was our first time going […]


This past weekend, Little Italy transformed into an outdoor art show, hence the name, ArtWalk.  I almost can’t believe that this was the 31st year of the festival!  We have been going for the past 3 or 4 years, and we always look forward to it.  Good food, good music and great art! After walking […]

Wine Not?

On Saturday we headed up to Del Mar to attend the San Diego International Wine Show at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.  The weather was surprisingly cloudy and overcast for Southern California, but even with the chance of showers we figured we might as well go, wine not? After checking in, picking up our tasting glasses […]

Art Alive

This morning I had the pleasure of attending the Art Alive event at the San Diego Museum of Art in Balboa Park.  Each year floral artists get paired with a painting in the museum to recreate with flowers, using their artistic interpretation.  This was our fist year attending the event, and definitely will not be […]
