My Awesome San Diego Vacation

Like I said on Monday in my Pale Girl's Guide to Surviving at the Beach, my husband and I went to San Diego for a week at the end of August. It was so much fun...we relaxed, slept, read, hit the beach (a lot!), and went to SeaWorld! Here are just some of the pictures from our trip!

Pacific Beach!

Mike and I on the was chilly for this AZ girl.

The view from our balcony. I know, right? Ah-mazing!

The obligatory feet on the beach picture...

I love Mexican food, and there are so many yummy restaurants in SD!

Our beach setup

What I do on the

I think we ordered too large of a pizza...

We DEFINITELY ordered too large of a pizza!

And yet...we get ice cream. We are vacation fatties.

A local farmer's market. We got cheese, grapes, and bread. Yum yum!

A magician nearly set me on fire.

At SeaWorld! What a fun day.

We're like two little kids!

I had my husband take pictures of me with actual sharks above my head
(just for you, Jess and Ruth!), but they didn't turn out.

Beautiful sunset view from our room.

Heading out for a nice dinner at Seaport Village.

Had to make it legit by taking a picture in front of the sign.

Handsome hubby!

Don't you love my floating head? My husband is 6'5" and tends to cut me off...
Your Turn: Did you take a vacation this year? If so, where? If not, where are you hoping to head sometime in the next few years? Or what's your dream vacation?

Happy Friday!


  1. Ok first I giggled at "we're vacation fatties" LOL! That pizza looked amazing.

    And I can't believe the shark pics didn't turn out! Waaah! That's okay, I'm bringing jaws and my portable DVD player next week. Guess what we're watching while eating cookies? ;) Bahahahahaha!

    Ba dump....

    1. No!!! I refuse to watch it. Even if it's playing in our room. *shudder*

      And the pizza WAS amazing!

  2. Loved the photos. FUN! Um, I did not take a big vacation this summer. I wrote. And edited. And wrote. And edited. Haha...but I DID get to spend a fun weekend up in Minnesota with a certain group of writing friends... :)

    1. I'm sorry you've been stuck at home, but at least you have a fun trip to look forward to NEXT WEEK! Can't believe it's so soon!

  3. "Vacation fatties"? My husband is all "hey look, celery, my favourite!"
    Which would have gotten him beaten senseless on the wee trip my mom and I took in June.
    Dessert buffet? Why sure, thanks!!
    Mom and I went on a dream vacation and it sorta was a 12 day Mediterranean cruise. With a balcony and a sunset view every night. I am spoiled forever.

    1. I'm glad you don't adhere to your husband's vacation eating tendencies. What fun is a vacation without dessert????

      And that trip sounds amazing!!

  4. Looks like a wonderful vacation, Lindsay! And vacation calories don't count. I'm pretty sure. :)

  5. Love, love, love all your pictures!! We always eat junky when we're on vacation. It's part of the fun! We camped on Lake Michigan this year. It's so beautiful and relaxing. Wish I could go back right now!

    1. That sounds so pretty! And way nicer than the camping trips I usually go on. Hehe.
