San Diego

**Random thought**
I wish you could 'like' a blog post... I don't always feel like or have time to comment on all the blogs I want to and I would love to show them some blog love by 'liking' their post! Anyways, I'm all over the place and just thought I'd throw that out there. :)

Matt and I had a great time on our little 'get-away' to San Diego.
Major props to Aunt Tiff for keeping the girls!!! :)

Even though it was work-related and we would've loved to do our own thing, it was an awesome trip and it just affirms that we want to go back one day! ... WITH the girls! It was so weird and quiet without them!

We stayed at the Omni...
and I really wish I could've basked in the sun for more than one day with this set-up! It was so nice! Unfortunantly, it was unseasonably cold/windy, but the one day I did get lay-out, it was heavenly!
While Matt was off in his meetings, I gallivanted around downtown...
Every inch of this shop was JEWELRY! Too cool.

I really wish I my sister, Michelle, was with me (she used to live here), but she loves 'boutiquing' or boutique shopping and I was thinking of her the whole time I was in Gaslamp Quarter.
It just isn't as much fun exploring a new city by yourself.
Really wished my hubby was with me!
That same day, I trekked down to seaport village. Very cute and quaint!
It's basically an area along the marina with quite a few little eccentric shops, etc. I had alot of fun exploring them and finally getting me some Sanuk flip-flops! If you haven't tried them on, DO IT! They're flops that the bottoms are made out of yoga mats! Love them!

One of the highlights of the trip was the 'last hoorah' that the company did as the send-off. They literally rented out an entire aircraft carrier called the U.S.S. Midway that's docked at the marina. The had tours of the lower decks, a U.S.O. Band and lots of good food!
On the upper-deck with displays/replicas of one of each plane, helicopter, etc. that had taken off there.
It was alot of fun and can't wait to go back!

Very thankful that Matt has such an awesome employer that allows him to work from home, gives us opportunities like San Diego, that is completely understanding of family & is extremely flexible with his time. We are so blessed and thank God for all the amazing opportunities He has placed in front of us. We would've NEVER in our wildest dreams thought we would be where we are today. All the glory goes to HIM.

Much Love!

So jealous of your trip away with Matt, and I don't know how in the world you handled five kids at 30 weeks pregnant! You look great. :)
