This wino is back at it.

So my weekend got off to a great start. My friend Cassandra suggested going on a hike/walk or whatever, and I thought of Mission Trails. It's this nature preserve area here in San Diego take takes up a few thousand acres, pretty much in the middle of the county. It's beautiful. There are lakes and waterways, high mountains (which get steep enough for rock climbing), horse trails, and MILES of hiking paths. It had been years since either of us had been, so it took us a while of hitting dead ends to decide to walk on a paved path about 4 miles total before we called it quits for the day. We will go back again next weekend, though, and be more educated about the trails.

But I did get this awesome panorama:

It's pretty, right???

Then Saturday night we went to the country bar, danced, played pool (terribly), and then went to go see a sorority sister from Memphis. She actually was an alumna advisor when I was in the chapter and on council, so she and I had a pretty good/close relationship when I was in college. I haven't seen her since I graduated but we keep up on facebook, and she went to Hawaii last week with another Kappa Delta. She had a layover in San Diego on her way back to Memphis. and since we have a curfew at our airport, she landed at midnight and couldn't fly out until 6 am. So I told her about this 24 hour restaurant downtown and she hung out there, and we went and met her there. Had a peanut butter bacon cheeseburger, which I DEVOURED, and caught up. Then she flew back to Memphis. It was so good to see her.

And yesterday we went................WINE TASTING. I had just said how I felt like it had been forever since I'd gone. Which considering the last wine tasting I did was my birthday weekend, approximately a month and a week ago, I think that officially makes me a wino, if I wasn't already one. Sheesh.

Anyhoo, it was a beeeeeeautiful day in Temecula yesterday.

Judge me. 

The arches in my feet hurt like a bitch this morning. I'm thinking it's from dancing a lot on Saturday night. But who knows. Anyway. 

Happy Monday, fools! Hope y'all have a great week!


  1. Love the last pic of you! :) Also love the panorama- beautiful!

    What do you mean your airport has a curfew?? I've never heard of that!


    1. haha thanks! and it means that like after 1 AM flights can't land, and after i think it's midnight flights can't leave. it's extremely inconvenient. but it's because they stupidly built the airport right on the bay next to downtown, so it's surrounded by houses on every side. it also means they can't expand it at all. so it will forever be the smallest international airport ever :)

  2. What?? What a pain- I can't believe it's like that! In AZ if you buy a house near the airport you deal with airport noise... haha
