30th Birthday Celebration - Girls' Weekend in San Diego

bethany sandoval

I am now in my 30s! I am quite excited about it and am looking forward to this next decade with anticipation of new adventures and personal growth.

To celebrate, my best friend of 23 years flew out to Phoenix and we road tripped it to San Diego for the weekend. This is a super rare occurrence. Like, never happens. I have three small children. Enough said 😉. But, it just so happened that my 6yr old and 2yr old we're going to be visiting their grandparents so I'd only have my 9 month old little guy with me, making a girls' trip totally doable. 

We stopped by World Market to gather the obligatory alcoholic beverages and snacks.  Jordan loves wine....I do not. So my inner graphic design nerd surfaced and I spent the time shopping for pretty bottles.

San Diego, here we come!

On Friday we stopped at Oceanside, CA on our way into San Diego for some dinner and to avoid a bit of weekend traffic. The beach is my happy place.

I found a super cute little rental on FlipKey and for being completely clueless on location, we totally lucked out. It was a perfect. We were between 5-20 min from just about everything that we wanted to do! And we had a hot tub and a little tiny ocean view ;) I'll take it.

It was cloudy and almost chilly for a good part of the weekend. But I love cloudy days. We don't get many of them in Phoenix.

I ordered the cutest custom cookies from Randa Bites Bakery in Oklahoma City. LOVED how they turned out!

La Jolla, California was one of my favorite places of our weekend. Incredible views. I want to go back!

La Jolla Cove was beautiful! I have never been that close to Sea Lions before.

The Maritime Museum of San Diego was a really neat experience. It wasn't even on our agenda but I'm glad we stumbled across it.

We went to Seaport Village for a bit of shopping and some yummy Greek cuisine. Cute little shopping village on the seaside.

This baby pirate was such a trooper. He smiled at most everyone he saw and was just such a happy guy.

This was one of the best birthdays I have ever had. This weekend contained so many things that make me happy: the ocean, cloudy skies, coffee and time with my bestie. A huge thank you to my wonderful husband who helped make this happen. I had been looking forward to this mini vacation for months and it did not disappoint!
