With The Girls (And Boys)

Balboa Park is one of my favorite places in San Diego.
It’s a huggge park with hiking trails, restaurants, outdoor cafes, a Japanese friendship garden, and is home to the San Diego Zoo.
Basically it’s an incredible place, and it's so easy to lose yourself in its beauty.

Last Saturday, Farra, Olivia, Magan, and I met at Balboa Park to check out the Art Alive exhibit at the San Diego Museum of Art.
Honestly we were a little underwhelmed by the mostly unimpressive flower arrangements exhibit, but still had a great time together.
And the best part? We were finally able to introduce the men in our lives to each other.
Yayyy
It was quite the epic blogger date

We spent some time wandering around the museum and then decided to get something to eat.
The only problem was that I picked the restaurant, but I kinda forgot that "said restaurant" was about an hours walk from our current location. Woops.
So we walked and we walked.. and it was cold.. and it rained (a lot)..and we walked (with baby Brendan in his stroller)
And, cough, everyone wanted to kill me.
We finally arrived at "said restaurant" and found this sign.
 Bigger woops haha. My punishment was standing next to the sign so everyone could take photos of me and laugh.
Did I mention that everyone wanted to kill me? =P
Good thing their love for me was stronger than their anger.
It was also a good thing that said restaurant was a block away from one of my favorite sushi spots in San Diego, Ebisu Sushi.
A few rolls, some Japanese beer, and a couple of hours later everyone forgave me.
(Pshew, I like my friends.)
Wishing you a happy week

Awee yayy for blogger dates! You all look so pretty and I'm glad you were able to have fun together even if the exhibit wasn't all that exciting. Haha how could you make everyone walk in the rain for that long!? Rain melts people of southern California. That's why no one knows how to function in it here lol. Haha but it definitely looks like all the cool people live in SD :)

How fun! I just moved to California and started blogging (simultaneously, actually) a couple months ago and I want to go on a blogger date so bad now!
That sushi looks delicious. Really, really delicious.

I loved Balboa Park when I was in San Diego last! I'm glad you had a good time despite the lackluster exhibit and restaurant mess-up. The sushi looks great though!

Thank you for your sweet comment and follow! Following you now :D

Hey there! I'm in VA but have BFF's in San Diego so I have been to Balboa Park and I LOVE THE HASH HOUSE! Great bloody mary's and you don't leave there hungry that's for sure. Really liked Baja Betty's too for brunch if you haven't been there. Love seeing pics of SD...it's one of my favorite places!!
