In a few weeks, I’m going home for the first time in nearly a year.
I’m very excited. It’s not going to be a long trip, but I want to do a whole lot of things. In no particular order, here’s a pictorial partial list:
Because you’re never too old to enjoy coloring. It’s possible that my nephew is now old enough for it, too. Coloring party, anyone?
Tidepools + sandpipers = happy Chrystall
Shop at thrift stores
Mama needs some vintage clothes and shoes. I’m only bringing that second suitcase they allow so that I can fill it with inexpensive goodies.
Drink good beer
Hopefully, the fact that I’m on vacation will inspire one of my wonderful friends to do a North County beer tour day so I can hit up several of my favorites: Stone, Green Flash*, Oceanside Aleworks, Lost Abbey and Pizza Port.
See live music
Preferably, music played by my friends.
I just happen to have an in at the best little waxing salon in town, so it’s all good.
This one is going to be tough, as I don’t have a bike of my own anymore, but I’m holding out hope one of my two-wheeled homies will come through. Or maybe I’ll just play tourist and rent one.
*It turns out Green Flash has moved to Mira Mesa. I like Green Flash, but Mira Mesa?
