I've told you about one of my oldest, dearest friends, Brie... Well after a spicy dating life that was fit for the Hollywood Silver Screen, she finally picked her Mr. Right! So, more for an excuse for girl time than celebrating her last days of being single, we blew the hot Houston summer and spent a weekend in beautiful San Diego... (La Jolla to be exact which is one of the cutest little towns I've ever been in!) Couldn't have asked for a better time with my bestest friends!!
And yes, I said summer... as in July... Only 4 months behind... oh, well...
Day 1 - Wine Tasting in Temecula
I didn't even know there was a wine region in Southern Cali, but alas, there is... Not as fab as Napa/Sonoma, but it was really cute.

Winery #1 - Longshadow Ranch
It was a titch country....
Winery #2 - Wilson Creek Winery

That night we went to dinner at George's Ocean Terrace and it was AWESOME! The view was incredible and food fantastic. They even brought us soft blankies when the sun set and it got cold! You HAVE to go here if you are ever in La Jolla!

It was cloudy, but still an amazing sunset!
Day 2 - Shopping and Brunch
This is the day that I learned about the ultra cute, uber expensive exercise clothes brand Lulu Lemon. Apparently, I was the last one in Houston to know about it... I see it everywhere now and one day I will be able to buy a sock from there!

We had big plans to go to the beach, but these old girls needed to prepare for the big night ahead. Seriously, between all of us some needed naps, others needed red bull and there was a stop to the pharmacy for tums. I am not going to name names, but suffice it to say, we are not as young as we once were!
On one of my kid's music CD's, there is a song called "The Old Gray Mare"... Have you heard it?!? The old gray mare, she ain't what she used to be, many long years ago. This is us... sad, but true! :)

We got tired of the long line of girl pics....
Dinner in downtown San Diego at cute restaurant called Analog.
Made it to the club...
We spent the whole night laughing...
Enjoying being with each other...
And being silly...
I love these girls beyond imagine and to spend an entire weekend with them was amazing....
As Ron Burgundy would say.. You stay classy, San Diego!
P.S. Thank you, sweet Stephen, for taking care of our wonderfully crazy children, so I could take a much needed break!
