san diego.

going crazy during the game :)

A couple weeks ago I was in San Diego to welcome my little brother home from his mission. I love going home. I love the memories attached to it, the weather, being with my friends, and my family. No place feels as good to me as being back in San Diego for me. I long to feel that way about another place someday... I am sure I will. But right now, San Diego is the only place that does it for me.

While I was able to do all my favorite things. I hit the best Mexican food stops, tried a great place called Hodads downtown (best onion rings I have ever had in my life!), and of course, I can't forget spending time with my girlfriends mixed with the beach!

Then being with my whole family, all of us six siblings together is becoming a rare event. It was a blast. We spent time staying up late talking, playing games and watching movies. We were even able to see a Padres game together! My boss was even in town and came with us. I grew up going to Padres games, so it was so much fun to be there and feel nostalgic. I am not a huge fan of the actual sport, but I absolutely love the ambiance of baseball games. Going to a tailgate party and then being at the park, it is much more then a game, it is an experience :) While I may not love baseball as much as I do football, soccer, or lacrosse, I DO love and support any team from San Diego, my hometown.

San Diego has my heart. It was a great week with family and friends. 
As the famous line in the song goes, TAKE ME HOME to the Padres :)

  1. So glad you were able to take a well deserved trip home. Looks like you had a blast :) I'm also more into the ambiance of a baseball stadium than the actual game itself!

  18. I can totally relate to your love for the Padres, tailgating, and feeling right at home. I'll always remember tailgating before every game at Qualcomm, and going to just the game at Petco isn't the same any more-it is still a blast! So glad you had some beautiful weather while you were in town.

  28. I'm way late with this comment, but I totally agree. No where feels the same as the place that you grow up. It's like it you know it, and it knows you back.

    *We go to the Rockies games every time we are all together too, but not because we like the sport. We've never watched a game on TV in our lives but man the ballpark is delightful.
