San Diego Conference

  I was lucky enough to spend 6 days in San Diego for a PA conference this past week & it was wonderful! What could be better than an all expense paid trip by work that included a little learning and a lot of playing!!!  Andy was able to come over and join me for the weekend but had to make it back for finals this week, probably a good thing he left or I wouldn't have been as motivated to go to as many courses.  Seriously why do they put continuing medical education conferences in the most beautiful sunny enjoyable places???? Here is a few highlights of the "fun stuff" we managed to fit in between classes.
What trip would be complete without a baseball game?  PETCO park was totally awesome!!!

does this or does this not sum up Andy's love for baseball!  I love how he's the only adult near the kids!!  Wait, that sounds kinda creepy!
Causing trouble at Hotel Del

Meeting up with good friends and my former classmates whom I spent more time with than Andy during our first year of marriage!! NO JOKE!!!

Um EATING duh!  There were so many unique and delish restaurants I have never heard of before in downtown.  This place was featured on Diner's Drive Inn's & Dives on FoodNetwork so Andy insisted.  Ostrich and Alligator burgers really just aren't my thing though

Tioli's Crazee Burger

Dick's Last Resort
My FAVORITE things about the week
1.  morning runs around the harbor
2.  walking everywhere!  I hate walking places at home but in SD I could walk all day long!
3.  LEARNING, oh so much learning!
4.  meeting up with old classmates and professors who are now my colleagues...WEIRD!  I still feel like I'm a kid
5.  king size bed to my self for a few nights!!

the weather was beautiful, the classes were great, the break was I'm ready to get back to the grind!
