Our Anniversary

Yesterday we celebrated our 1st year wedding anniversary.  We celebrated by going out to fabulous seafood restaurant.

I work a black dress that I bought from Francesca’s a little boutique in La Jolla, CA.


For accessories, I wore a Fabulous Chic necklace made from sterling silver and Blue Goldstone.



I made the necklace, especially to wear with this dress.  What do you think of the necklace?

Road Trip Part Two

The second leg of our road trip to was to Cape Cod.  We stopped in Boston and Plymouth before our final destination to Cape Cod.  We attempted to go to Boston Commons which is the oldest park in the country.  After several failed attempts to get to the part we had lunch at U Burger and we were off to Cape Code.  On the drive we saw the signs to Plymouth home of Plymouth Rock, so we stopped there.


Below is the picture of Plymouth Rock.  I always pictured Plymouth Rock as this huge rock that the Mayflower landed on.  It is not a very big rock.

After hanging out at Plymouth we drove to Provincetown, Cape Code.  Provincetown had lots of great little shops.  The following morning my boys and I hung out at the beach.

First leg of the road trip

Our first destination was Washington DC.  We got into town late last night and stayed at a Hilton Alexandria, VA.  In the morning, after dropping the boys off at the Pet Smart Doggie Day Care we were off to spending the day in DC.  Our first stop was Howard University, where my husband and I met my freshman year in college.



Afterwards we went to Pizzeria Uno in Georgetown, the same restaurant that we went to for date nights.  After lunch we did a little window shopping but due to the heat we didn’t stay too long.



DC is one of my favorite cities.

After Georgetown, we went to the Hard Rock Cafe to pick up a Hurricane glass.  I collect them from every city that I go to, and then it was off to Pentagon City for reminiscing and shopping.  During my junior year in college I worked at the Express in Pentagon City.

After shopping, we picked up the boys and then it was off to New York where we are staying for the night.  We made a pit stop at the Hard Rock Cafe in Baltimore for another Hurricane glass. 

About 11 o’clock this evening we make it to our hotel in New York and tomorrow morning we are off to Boston.

San Diego

I just got back home from San Diego.  As many of you know, my day job is a HR professional and every year I got to the National Society of Human Resources Management (SHRM) Conference.  This year it was in San Diego.  This was the first time I have been to California and I could definitely become and Cali girl.  I loved California.  Unfortunately it was not a lot of fun in the sun since San Diego was experiencing what they call June Gloom.  The temperature stayed in the 60s.  Even with the chilly weather, San Diego was a beautiful city.  We stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel, which was very modern and the shopping in La Jolla was great.  Sea lions were hanging out at the beach with us.  We had an incredible time.  I even saw Erik Estrada, the guy from Chips.
