Itinerary: Part Two

Posted on May 27, 2011

Happy Friday!

As you can imagine, the past few months have been a bit chaotic and we’ve been running around like mad people trying to get everything done and in order.  Plus, we’re still trying to squeeze in visits to all of our favorite places one last time before we move.  Although it’s an exhilarating time in our lives, all the details are enough to make our heads spin!

We’ve made good progress on our itinerary and wanted to share part two with you.  As we mentioned in part one, we know this will probably change a million times between now and then, but it gives us a good idea of how long we’ll stay in each city.

Our hotels are all booked through San Diego and we’ve moved on to searching for hotels in L.A. and the Central California coast (Pismo Beach, Carmel/Monterey).  If you have any recommendations for those areas, we’d love to hear them!

Because this is such a wordy post, we thought today was the perfect time to share a few photos of one of our little family of three’s favorite spots to hang out…Starbucks on the River Walk.

Mitch and I had just finished running a few miles along the River Walk (after we walked Gus, of course) and decided to plunk down at Starby’s for a refreshing Venti, Non-Fat, Skinny, Caramel Macchiato.  Seriously, we couldn’t have sounded more pretentious placing our order!

Gus’s car makes regular appearances on the River Walk scene.  It’s definitely one of the greatest gifts we’ve ever received.

Per usual, Gus was on his best behavior during this particular Starby’s trip.  Most of the time, he’s content to lay on a chair or on the ground, but this particular day he wanted to sit in his dad’s lap.  Neither Mitch nor I can ever deny his request to cuddle!

We hope you have a fantastic Friday and holiday weekend!
