It's A Funny Thing

There's this funny guilt that constantly creeps up on you if you live in San Diego….
Most days it’s just so beautiful out and you end up feeling guilty if you’re inside, instead of outside enjoying the beautiful weather.
I often find myself thinking, “Mannn it’s so beautiful out I should go on a hike/bike ride/or go lay out at the beach, but I have x,y, and z to do and the couch looks soo cozy right now”

On one hand this guilt is a great thing, it motivates you to go out and have fun…
On the other hand, this guilt hits me almost every weekend,
and often leads to procrastination and a less than spotless house. The truth is, most weekends I’d rather be outdoors than inside being productive and cleaning the house (sorry mom)

Anyway, this weekend Nadav was (is) sickkkkk, which was obviously horrendous for him, but almost a little nice for me? (Shh don’t tell him that)
Yes, of course I felt bad for him, made sure he took Dayquil and Nyquil, and gasp.. cooked for him,
but I was also able to slow down, relax, and well hang out at home a bit (without that San Diego guilt).
and… I liked it

Friday night I picked up some Mexican food.. and let’s just put this out there Taco Bell is NOT Mexican food. 

Saturday afternoon eating shopping at Costco… (come on now, don’t act like you don’t go there for the samples too heh)

Just me, my kindle, and the bay on Saturday afternoon. This weekend was so incredibly beautiful


Sunday I ran errands, made dinner, and baked some cookies

By Sunday evening the Sick One decided he was getting a little house crazy and decided we should drive down the hill to catch the sunset at Mission Bay. Beautiful eh?

I decided to reintroduce my legs to the sun. Check out that paleness… it’s a little outta control right now 


How was your weekend friends?

Samantha said...

You San Diego-ans sure have it made! I would love to be on the beach tanning and reading right about now!

I may or may not have got a little too drunk on Friday so I spent Saturday in bed. Whoops. But Sunday we did brunch so I felt a bit more productive. :)

Those cookies look amazing! I'm so jealous of CA weather...I need to move back.

Gina said...

Ha! I feel this way every weekend. I too introduced me legs to the sun while walking my dogs and I think I blinded half the neighborhood...so pale, so pale.

Amira said...

I end up feeling the exact same way on the weekends! Guilty if I'm not outside enjoying the weather we're so lucky to have in "winter/spring". This weekend was exceptionally gorgeous too! That's why I'm usually lazy in the evenings haha, once the sun goes down :-)

Erinn said...

my husband always tells me the best mexican food he ever had was in San Diego. I hope I can visit there sometime soon. it sounds like a magical place :)

Ana said...

It also SO nice in San Francisco! That doesn't happen often though haha

Your cookies look delicious! Hope you hubs feel better soon :)

Anna Elder said...

Sigh. I've decided I know too many Californians and I have been thoroughly drenched in jealousy over everyone's Sunday. My dad went swimming, friends were at the beach, and now you. ;(((((

Ok, now that I've thrown my tantrum. UM YUM! Those cookies look so good. And I'd win in the who's legs are more translucent contest. ;)

Ash said...

i laid out a little yesterday, to reintroduce these white california legs to the sun (so weird to think we should TRY to get sun..)

i guess i probably shouldn't contribute to your guilt by telling you how jealous i am??

although we DID go up to Big Bear this weekend.. and OH MAN was it gorgeous!

CMM said...

Love, love love...I know that feeling of "gotta get out, it's TOO beautiful today"!! I (we) live in Clairemont also, used to be in Bay Park, but we had to move a tiny bit east when we decided to buy. This weekend was really just fabulous, no matter what you were doing.
I am so glad to have found your blog via Megan @ http://living4london.blogspot.com

your cookies look scrumptious!! i know what you mean about the 'guilt!' my saturday was like that and it actually made me upset! so on sunday, the boy and i hiked Cowles Mountain and then walked around a local farmer's market.
ps - do you ladies have a date picked out for the next so-cal bloggers meetup? i hope i can go to it!

Jamie said...

I miss San Diego desperately. Reading your posts makes me green with envy. Gorgeous pics!

Daisy said...

It was so warm this weekend! Great pictures :)

Lauryn said...

No matter where you live, you're still a person who's entitled to lazy days and procrastination! As long as you're not *complaining* about the nice weather, then I think you're completely fine :) haha

Bethany said...

Costco pizza is sooo good, but I usually don't have room from all the samples haha. Your beach pictures (especially that one of the sun) are so pretty!

Cindy and Jordan said...

LOVE YOUR BLOG! i'm a san diego girl too, but now live far away and am missing it like crazy. im following now :)

Stephanie said...

I'm so pale too!!! I'm definitely a fish out of water in California winters! :)

Kristina Gulino said...

Wow I was just thinking about this. We can walk to the beach from our place, but after work/gym/dinner I'm often way to comfortable to walk down to the beach..plus it's dark. Definitely going to aim to head out more this week - thanks for the inspiration! :) xo

PS - Totally craving mexican food right now...

That sunshine really does have a way of making you feel guilty, doesn't it!? Gorgeous pictures though...SD is just beautiful.
