About a month ago, I arrived at my new home in SAN DIEGO! The next few days were full of tons of excitement as well as tons of coordinating, unpacking, errand-running, etc. As many of you know, my dad helped me make the cross country drive and was able to stay throughout the weekend to help me start to get settled in. Isn't he a nice man?
Luckily, we did have a little time to explore before he had to fly back to the East Coast. Here's a little of what we did:
+Obviously, an In-N-Out trip had to be made while dad was in town.
You should be proud of me. It is still THE only time I've been since I moved here :)
P.S. How cute is that wrapper?
And that, my friends, is the majority of my belongings that got shipped out to me thanks to ABF! The joys of being a single gal!
No shame in some of my DVD collection. Yes, I do have two copies of Season One of The Hills. So?
When my brother used to live in SD, he sent us a picture at Christmastime of that same tree, all decorated with beach balls :)
We were headed for fish tacos at a place in OB called South Beach Bar & Grille but they were closed for renovations. Thanks to Yelp, I found a place on the other side of the street that not only had rave reviews, but also made it onto The Food Network's Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.
It was so amazing that it actually deserves its own post so you'll have to wait for that!
After our nice break at the beach, we headed back to my house to get things situated, went out to grab some coffee/milk tea, and then unpacked some more before finally crashing early.
The following day was full of more fun errands!
If you couldn't tell by looking at the furniture or the Swedish meal [free with purchases of $100 or more!] then I'm sure the last picture will tell you that I spent a fun afternoon at Ikea!
I can't believe that even the Ikea here is gorgeous! Look at those palms :)
I honestly don't know what I would do without my dad. He was such a huge help and his company was wonderful to have!
I wish we could have had more time to do some sight-seeing before he left but he's already told me he can't wait to come back to sunny San Diego for another visit!
I dropped him off at the airport on the Monday morning after arriving in SD with a long list of things still to do and places to see. The adventure was only just beginning...
