I like Sports?

August has been filled with a few sporting events. We are lucky enough in San Diego to be able to dabble in many different recreational activities. The Padres and The Chargers...both are on again off again, but we secretly love them...even the Padres. To answer the question if I like long as a beer or two are involved, I sure do!

We went to the Padres game with Heath and Laly. Most of the time was spent not watching the game however. For being Heath's first time at a professional sporting event, we sure didn't really experience anything spectacular...this time the Frew's blame the pre-game mimosas.

For our aniversary, I got Cody tickets to the Chargers game. Football has won his heart these past couple of years, so it was fun to go and enjoy even a pre-season game. After beating the crowds to get in, buying beer at $10 a pop (which should be illegal by the way), we plopped down in our pretty wonderful field level seats. A great way to kick off the season, despite a loss :(

Disclaimer: I swear we don't drink as much as it sounds like we do. We indulge in the sweeter and hoppier things in life.

Year One...Marriage is so not over-rated...

So the 1st anniversary has come and gone. Cody and I have had an incredible beginning to being married...I wouldn 't have asked for anything better. Although I find it strange starting the countdown all over again. This November, we will have officially been together for 9 years. What the heck!? I have been with Cody for more than a third of my life. It's nuts. But now we're at square one? One year? Can I celebrate both accomplishments? I think I least it's an excuse for a night out!

The number one question I've been asked these days? "So, how was your first year of marriage?" Doesn't this question have an obvious answer? Does anyone out there respond "eh, it was okay." I think not. Let us try and be creative. For me, marriage and dating somewhat blend together. How can they not? I barely remember my life without Cody. A better question would be "what's the craziest thing that happened this year?" This would be a start to at least a potentially interesting answer.

There is no way to sum up our year...we have done so much and been so many places.

We celebrated the big numero uno with a trip to Downtown San Diego. Being tourists in our own big city was lots of fun and we enjoyed our 5 star hotel experience. Of course, being greeted with a bottle of champagne on arrival cannot hurt....again our love for wine.

Our b-e-a-utiful 2 bedroom suite

Vanilla scented walls in the elevators...

We ended our wonderful reminiscing weekend with brunch at RBI compliments of getting married their a year prior. A small token for the ridiculous dinero we spent there...we should really have received a trophy instead :)

One year later at Rancho Bernardo Inn. So glad I married this that same spot...
Things haven't changed too much have they?!

Double Peak Park

This is an awesome place. I packed a picnic dinner for us and we set off to a new high. The highest point in coastal north county. On a clear day the ocean is more than visable...

There is LOTS to do here. Sit, stare, hike, play...somewhere to visit and enjoy.

Seriously...go here. We snuck wine...mmmmm


July came and went for us. More days on the job search than I can remember and doing my best to keep entertained and busy.

I was husbandless for a week in the great outdoors of Truckee with my family.

Here is what I saw...

Wine and casinos is a perfect way to relax with the Johnson's!

Food Challege Fail

So we can't do it.

We love going out to eat.

We did however last at least two and a half weeks. It's hard not to get busy and caught up in life...eating out here and there is all too natural for us. We are however doing better....trying harder to tame those alcohol calls our name...

So for now, a food tease of some good home cookin'. Enchiladas.....YUM!!

....and yes, accompanied by wine :)
