Last month on a nice, bright sunny afternoon, Jake, T and I went Downtown. Normally I avoid Downtown like the plague but I’ve found that daytime trips to Downtown really aren’t that bad. We were heading to a Padres vs Cardinals game that evening and scored excellent parking right across the street from Petco Park. Since we were there about four hours before the game, parking was HELLA CHEAP. We paid $8 TOTAL and netted ourselves a $1/hr parking fee. SCORE. …

hodad’s + birthdays

T turned 17 last week. Jake and I remarked profusely about how time passes so quickly. I feel like summer just started and now we’re nearing the final days of summer instead. T will be starting his junior year of high school in a couple of weeks and I’m amazed at how much he’s grown over the years. For his birthday, we went to Hodad’s in Downtown San Diego with Jake’s mom, T, Jake and I all in tow. I …

double standard kitchenetta

Imagine it: Sunday afternoon. Downtown. Bright, sunny, few clouds here and there. Hot. Humid. Nice day to sit outside on the patio at a new-to-you restaurant. You’ve got your dog, your boys, and an afternoon of food ahead of you! Just ignore those deep dark clouds that keep rolling in for a moment. It won’t rain, right? 
Yeah, we’ll get to that.
Last weekend I was invited to try out Double Standard Kitchenetta – a relative new joint down in Gaslamp. Previously this spot was …

patron secret dining society in san diego

Last week it was Comic Con! And Patron decided it was high to come back to San Diego for another special event: the Patron Secret Dining Society! In my email I got a little hint that Patron was heading back here and I promptly answered their question and gained myself an invitation to the dinner and the dessert party. “DESSERT PARTY!” Goodness, can you imagine? You won’t have to – just see the bottom of this post!
The invitation for the …

anniversary dinner at toast enoteca & cucina

Jake and I recently celebrated our 8th anniversary! EIGHT. E-I-G-H-T. It is crazy how fast time flies by. When Jake and I started dating, his youngest son (S) was only four years old! And S will be 13 this year! Holy crazy cakes, Batman.
Jake and I have been through a lot of ups and downs but I feel like the last few years have been more ups overall which makes me quite happy. I wouldn’t change anything and everything …

padres fan fest 2015 + lolitas

This weekend over at Petco Park they started gearing up for the opening of the 2015 baseball season. The Padres held their annual Fan Fest and we attended so the kids (and Jake) could get a few autographs from the players.

It was a very early morning start on Saturday. We got the stadium about 7:45AM. We had one member ticket and were hoping they would let us in at the 8AM time slot but sadly that wasn’t the case. I …

december nights

Jake’s mom worked at December Nights this year so of course we wanted to go down and see what’s she’s been working on these past few months! She helped organize the vendors in certain areas of Balboa Park and we were able to check out the area she organized, grab some food, and walk around Balboa Park. She also managed to snag us a parking pass in one of the lots near the Aerospace Museum so we didn’t have to …
