Saturday- taught boot camp
ran 6 miles on the treadmill at home
Sunday- short jog and some stair laps with STUFT Daddy in downtown San Diego
Oh heck yeah, we did a little workout together. Pictures to follow.
Andrew and I had a little getaway Saturday night to downtown San Diego. It was a birthday celebration and early Valentine’s Day all in one. And since I’m still feeling a little under the weather I’m just going to photo dump our little dating and dining getaway. Mmmmm-kay?
Obviously once we dropped of the boys our first stop was Starbucks.
We were in the car for approximately 15 minutes before we both said we already missed the boys.
We pretty much do the same routine every time we go to San Diego. I think we’ve been about four times now since we’ve been married. Our first trip to make it on the blog was this one. What can I say, we’re creatures of habit.
We did stay at a different hotel this time though. We went for Embassy Suites mainly because they have a free happy hour. Ha ha.
Once we got checked in we had some time to kill before the free happy hour. Well, what do you know, the first stop on our little walk was this Hot Licks hot sauce shop.
If it wasn’t so darn expensive I could’ve really done some damage in there. We walked out with a $10 bottle of Afterlife, a ghost pepper hot sauce.
I only had to ask a few strangers to take our picture before we got a good one down by the water.
And, um, yeah, how cool are these rocks?
I was totally ready for the free happy hour to make my own low calorie Nuun margaritas.
I got tequila on ice with lime, then added water, 1/2 Nuun lemon lime tablet and this Target margarita packet. They were pretty darn good if I do say so myself.
We must be moving up in the world too because when we got back to the room we had a special delivery thanks to my silver status.
Bottled water and microwave popcorn. We’re so VIP. Ha.
It was cold outside so I went for my big jacket. Andrew informed me it wasn’t snowing and that you’re not supposed to wear white after Labor Day.
I ignored him and made him take my picture with Dick.
Then I made him be in a picture with Dick.
We went to The Strip Club again for dinner.
Obviously this martini was a must.
I was kind of tempted to do the 69 challenge, but Andrew talked me out of it.
Andrew did the grilling (and was thrilled about it).
I took pictures and drank wine.
Ugh. Buying a bottle of wine at a restaurant stings a little doesn’t it? I’m so used to my $6.99 bottle of my favorite wine. Ha.
I asked for some spicy things on the side and they brought me all these goodies.
Jalapeños, horseradish, wasabi and Tabasco. I’m not a fan of Tabasco, so it was a good thing I had my new purchase in my purse.
We went to Ghirardelli for dessert afterwards. I’ve been wanting to go there since The San Francisco Marathon because we didn’t get a chance to go to the one up there.
We made up for it big time.
So much for not eating dairy desserts.
In the morning somehow I convinced Andrew to go on a little jog with me so we could run these cool stairs a few times.
There was a pretty cool view at the top.
Look, his and hers Mizuno shoes.
Now he just needs some Pro Compression socks. Ha.
After our little run we went to the most amazing champagne buffet brunch at the Westgate Hotel.
I took some pictures of our eats, but to be honest I’m so sick of food right now I don’t want to see them. hey, a win win, I’ll save you from having to look at them too.
I’ve been eating non stop since the marathon last week and I’m ready to get back on track. I’m also ready to kick this darn cold and feel better.
If things are a little quiet over here it’s because I’m actually being smart and resting before things take a turn for the worse. I need to be smart now since freaking Boston is 10 weeks away. Yikes.
Okay, I’m out.
Hope you had a wonderful weekend.
Did you watch the Super Bowl?
I was seriously tempted to take a nap since I felt so rotten, but I made it to a few family gatherings.
Do you have the same “date routine” sometimes or are we the only ones?
Any thoughts on these new hand dryers that are everywhere? They kind of scare me.
