SoCal wrapped up

The trip to San Diego & Orange County was fabulous! I was so sad to see the trip end. But we came back with some incredible memories {like my mom kicking butt at the marathon}, fabulous pictures & wonderful time spent with old friends.
The first night was reserved for my bestie, Jeanine! Oh how I miss that girl! We went to Wine Steals in Hillcrest... so fun!

The next morning we hit up a San Diego crowd fav... if you're from the area, you know what I'm talking about!


On Saturday, the fam came into town!
My beautiful mother gearing up for the big race.

While the brothers & I enjoyed the beautiful San Diego weather... a huge change from the rainy weather we'd been having up north!
And bright & early, we hit the streets of SD and met her during the marathon. We caught up with her at mile 16 & 18:
And of course the finish line!
YAH mom!
She absolutely rocked it! We were so proud of her!

Lastly, we headed up to Orange County on Monday & Tuesday to meet up with our dear friends in Orange County.
They are fabulous... and let me just say how gorgeous & glowing my friend is! We can't wait to meet their little tike in September!

Thank you for all the sweet comments! A couple people have asked where the marathon took place... It started downtown and ended at Sea World. It was a blast and very nice to see my mom complete something so incredible. Hope youre having a good weekend all! xo

Officially jealous of your Mom. Running a marathon is on my bucket list, so congrats to her for being able to do that! And to answer your question from my blog, I'm moving to Palo Alto. Are you Northern or Southern CA?
