I'm Amanda from Amanda's Daily Obsessions and I'm happy to be guest posting here on miss Kai's blog!
For those of you who don't know me I was born and raised (for the most part) in Sacramento, CA and I've recently moved to North San Diego County (with a brief stint in San Antonio, TX in between)
Now I know a ton of people are obsessed with socal. Most people I knew growing up wanted to move down here but honestly, I was never one of those people. I loved norcal (still do) and although most of my favorite vacations were in southern CA (um...hello? Disneyland!!) I never really felt the urge to move here.
...but let me tell you know that I'm here I never want to leave! and since that's not likely to work out (my hubs is is the Navy) I'm going to soak it in as much as I can!
So I thought I'd let you all know some of my favorite things so far about socal:
specifically, the dog beach in Del Mar! not only is it a super pretty beach, I can let my little Lulu (the pug above) off leash to run amuck with the other dogs. She has so much fun!
ok...this isn't really a socal thing, but I did say I was in Texas for a bit and there were none and I missed me some Trader Joe's!
Ohmygoshsodelicious! their chocolate shakes are seriously the best thing ever! I specifically love the one in Oceanside. It's at the very end of the pier (which is the longest wooden pier on the west coast fyi) and has the most amazing views! you also get to take a nice stroll down the pier and back to get there (which you can then justify getting that milkshake...it's exercise right!?)
Being so close to Disneyland!
Disneyland is my favorite place ever! I mean... it's the happiest place on earth! What's not to love about that? We've gone a couple times already in the 3 or so months we've been here and are saving up for season passes. I can't wait!
Oh gosh Coffee Bean is just seriously so much more delicious than Starbucks! Don't get me wrong I love me some Starbs but there is one less than half a mile from my house and if it's open I will go 4+ miles out of my way to go to coffee bean instead
Torrey Pines State Reserve
It's seriously so pretty! normally I'm not a huge hiker but It really isn't that bad and it's a good way to get some exercise and have fun at the same time!
well that's my list so far, let me know what are some of your favorite things to do and places to go in socal. I'd love to find out!
