San Diego

Ah! Sunny California. It’s always so much fun visiting, and right now I’m in San Diego with my family. It’s great being by the beach and being able to watch the waves while you eat breakfast. I’ve gone in the ocean a couple of times now, and the water has been really warm this year! Though the sand does get everywhere. I think I’m carrying about 5 pounds of sand in my bathing suit right now.

We went thrift store shopping in Hillcrest, and it’s interesting to see how different the fashion is from back home. Everything is just a bit shorter and lighter…and a bit more boho/beachy. I did end up buying a couple of shirts that were just super soft and comfy. Our cousin actually found these awesome stores first, and we were able to meet up with her to check them out.

She’s also been getting into surfing and got us to rent boards for an hour to try it out. I’m not so sure it’s my thing, but Bren really had a lot of fun. The board for me just felt a bit too large and awkward…my arms are just a tad too short it seems. Maybe if we were to get some lessons, I’d pick up a few tricks but I think I’ll just stick to swimming in the ocean.

If I could live by the ocean, I probably would. There’s just something so soothing about looking outside and watching the waves. But at the end of this week, we’ll be flying out and going back to the grind. Hopefully, we’ll be able to come back next year but we may decide on a different place. So, time to make the most of this vacation!

MeHi! My name’s Alexis and I finally took the leap into blogging after reading so many fun posts by other food bloggers.  I’ve always had a passion for eating, but have never really felt comfortable in the kitchen.  There are so many drool-worthy recipes out there, that I wanted to document my musings in the kitchen both following others’ recipes and becoming brave enough to create my own.  Please take a look around! I really want to hear from you! If you make something, like something, don’t like something, please comment or use the contact form!  Reading your comments really makes my day!  If you’re looking for an easier way to get my recipes, you can sign up for my email and get them directly to your inbox.  I hope to hear from soon.
