San Diego Weekend!

The first weekend in January my girlfriends and I went to San Diego.

Arrived Friday night, checked into our Holiday Inn Express Hotel and drove to Coronado Island.

We ate at Lil Piggy’s BBQ. The portions were leaning towards the small size. We ordered (2) Three Meats Platter. Beef brisket, pulled pork, chicken, and ribs. Our sides: Mac & Cheese, Corn fritters with honey butter, and beans.

The BBQ Ribs and chicken were very moist. The other meats were pretty average. The corn fritters + honey butter = To Die For! The one thing lacking from this BBQ joint is its own original BBQ sauce. They had a mango Habanero one but their regular BBQ sauce needs some TLC. All in all, I’d come here again and I would know what to order but if I find out Phil’s BBQ is way better I am not returning to Lil Piggy’s.

Saturday: USS Midway

We ate lunch at Point Loma Seafood

Quite a busy and chaotic place. Everything tasted very fresh. Deep-fried shrimp–to die for. Cocktail sauce is very flavorful and really complements the fried shrimp. The fried cod was average. The crab cake was very different and I’m still not quite sure what to make of it. Their coleslaw is definitely nothing special.

Then we headed over to Balboa Park.  Lots of things to see and plenty of Museums to visit.

Then we went to dinner at Bronx Pizza.

Awesome prices for speciality pizza. We ordered one whitestone pizza half with spinach and garlic. Then we ordered a half deluxe and half porko: meatball, sausage, and pepperoni. The white sauce pizza is a MUST. The regular pizza was fine.

We then went to Old Town San Diego for some flavored tortillas. Yummy!

I don’t really have an excuse except for busyness. Then again, everyone is always busy. As the saying goes, you make time for those you love. In this case, things you love, i.e. blogging 🙂

I had an interview yesterday. I don’t exactly know how to read if I’ll be hearing positive news next week (which is when they’ll be contacting me).

* * * * * * * * * * * * * *

I’ll have to write a post about it … maybe after I write this one?

* * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Just in case you didn’t know… LIKE ME ON FACEBOOK

Oh, I’m in the process of redo-ing my WordPress Categories. I realize I have a lot of overlapping and very broad/general categories. Time to pin-point what I write about!

* * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Any ideas? Obviously…. Welcome to my Randomness, is a given. I need to come up with a catchy phrase regarding my singleness/others need to matchmake….I have a feeling I have plenty more of those stories.

My cousin (Je) text me the other day… “Ya’ll should get onesies we’re all wearing them for Christmas and by we I mean, Den, Jo, and me…hopefully all the boys do it to… (the boys consist of Ja, Ry, and my brother)

* * * * * * * * * * * * * *

I’m totally down with onesies but I’m not totally down with taking pictures in onesies and letting the world see...  via facebook.

Oh a little blip about my Black Friday: 3:30 WAKE UP! 4am leave the house. 4:30 arrive at the mall. Left the mall at 8am went to Target. Left Target at 9 went to Kohl’s (I hate lines at Kohl’s, just saying) Left Kohl’s at 10:30. Went to a different Target 11am. Left Target went to Big 5 12pm. Finally Denny’s for “Brunch”. At 1pm Active for the sake of my brother. After this I let my sister drive. I was a goner. They drove to Best Buy. Then finally HOME at 2:30.

I’m done with my Christmas shopping…except for presents for my cousins (5). I did pretty well. The only thing left on my list are brown and black boots.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * *

I’m picky…so it’s no wonder I didn’t find any, yet.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Maybe we shall stop by a few malls in San Diego 🙂
