California Here We Come!

... or more like there we go as I'm back home from a whirlwind work trip to San Diego. I'm sad it's already over, but it feels amazing to be back home. My brain is on overdrive after 3 days at the Social Media Marketing World conference. SO much knowledge! Definitely worth every single penny that companies invest in their employees to attend, and I can't wait to apply all that I've learned both professionally and personally.

I stayed at the Omni San Diego which was the perfect location - right across the street from the convention center so I could easily come and go to the conference and in the heart of the Gaslamp District. And can we talk about how my room looked right out into Petco Park? My baseball lovers heart was super happy except for the fact that the Padres are still away at spring training.

Ready to hit the ground running in San Diego, and do some exploring. Side note - these leggings were perfect for the 5 and 1/2 hour flight over and for all the walking I did once I arrived. They're super soft and less than $15.

*Ready for Day 1 of the conference*

*Surreal to see Michael Stelzner in person - he's kind of a big deal in marketer's world*

Can we also talk about how the conference included networking runs (or walks) and wellness breaks that included yoga and other movement classes? YES please!  

*Still dreaming about my iced latte from Copa Vida - made me say Starbucks who?*

*Ready to check out after a fulfilling conference*

Bon Voyage!

I can't believe the final countdown is on until we set sail with friends and our kiddos. I've been stocking up on all the fun pieces for myself and lil' miss. I seriously can't stop won't stop with all the darling toddler pieces!

Packing for a tropical cruise is always so easy for me because I live in bathing suits and cover ups by day, and dresses or rompers at night for dinner and a show. I always feel like all I need is some fun beach clothes, sundresses for dinner, my fav $16 sunnies, floppy hats, sunscreen, a beach bag, and my passport. So of course - a cute passport holder is necessary.

What are some of your must-have items that you pack for a cruise?

Shopping My Closet

Every time I get into a shopping rut and feel uninspired I shop my closet. This time, I broke out an oldie but a goodie maxi dress that I scooped up at Marshalls a few summers ago and paired it with adenim jacket that I layer over everything this time of year. Just add a pop of color with some fun sandals or jewelry.

A Night Out with Mr. Bublé

I've been a little quiet here in blog land, but there has been some fun had in recent weeks including a belated Galetine's evening to go see Michael Bublé and a day at the beach catching up with family. Always good for the soul.

We were totally spoiled by a good friend of ours with tickets in a luxury suite. Private bathrooms and not having to pay $15-$20 per drink? Yes please! And Mr. Bublé? AMAZING! 

*Shameless bathroom selfie*

After the show was over, we made our way upstairs to the One80 Sky Lounge for another drink and some dancing under the stars. 

The next day, we went up to the coast to meet my aunt and uncle for lunch while they're visiting from CT. It was the perfect day to enjoy some food and drinks over a long overdue catch up on the water.

*She LOVED her Auntie*
