la jolla love.

our two day one night mini-vacation in la jolla was, well, heaven.
i can't begin to tell you how much i needed to travel somewhere. anywhere.
(even if it was only an hour away)
and to get away with chad, just me and him... perfection.

we explored caves and watched the harbor seals (the funniest little creatures.)
chad spotted a whale right when it started to rain on us.
and then it rained harder and then it poured.
so we went back to the hotel and took a loooooong nap .

we ate. and ate. and ate.
burgers and parmesan-garlic fries and fancy filets and lava cake and one big ol' breakfast.

then this evening we snuck home, still in vacation mentality (and totally sleepy).
we changed into our comfs and cooked a little meal
and cuddled up to watch angelina jolie kick some butt.

i love vacations, even if they're small ones.
