Post-Anniversary Weekend Withdrawal

Okay, I love my kids. I really do. But man was it nice to have a couple of days without having to worry about them once! The hubby and I got to send the kids to Grandma and Papa's for a few days and we got to spend some quality quiet time together. Here are some photos to share if you're interested.

I couldn't agree more, Rudy's!

We ended up at Newport Beach on Friday, and even though it was super cloudy and a little cold, we had a really fun time sitting on the beach and just relaxing. I haven't been to the beach without kids since before E was born! Any of you moms out there know that the beach with little kids is not the most relaxing experience in the world. So it was a nice contrast to just sit, eat, read, and soak it all up.

There's me and my cheesy grin. We didn't even get any photos of us together -- should have busted out the tripod, but I just didn't get to it. But that's okay, I know what we look like. :)

After the beach, we drove around a little and found ourselves dangerously close to the Sprinkles cupcake store. Oh, heaven, thy name is Sprinkles. We got a variety of flavors, including Ginger, Strawberry, Key Lime, Chocolate, and Black&White. They were gooooooood.

After that we decided to head out to Dave and Buster's for some arcade goodness. I haven't played those kind of games in so long! It was fun getting to be a little competitive, too. That's always good tension for a marriage and I just love beating my hubby at anything since it doesn't happen that often. ;)

The hubby's game wigged out on him and started adding points randomly so he ended up with a ton of tickets. He was 30 away from winning the jackpot. So sad. But, we ended up getting some plastic D&B glasses. Not bad!

All in all, it was a great couple of days and we even got to eat at Riptide, my favorite sushi place ever! We were planning on eating at the Rusty Pelican in Newport, but decided last-minute to have sushi. I'm glad we did, it was a lot of fun.

So thanks, babe, for a great mini vacation! I had tons of fun hanging out with you and we need to do that again sometime. Soon. ~BC

How fun! I'm glad you guys had such a great anniversary weekend. How many years has it been now? 5? You're old. :)

You're telling me! I know we're old, it's okay, I'm coming to terms with it. :)

You guys will be here before you know it!

Your trip makes me so jealous-that's where I used to live (and why I have never quite loved Texas-Cali is a tough act to follow). Glad you found the Sprinkles; we go EVERYTIME we visit, and I even made Kelly bring them home on the plane when he went on business trips. Next time, go get a Balboa Bar, and eat at the Crab Cooker in Newport, and I can totally live vicariously thru you. Happy Anniversary!
