The Perfect So-Cal Weekend Getaway

You guys know I’m all about the weekend getaway – I’ve written about how to pack for them on Front Roe, but this past weekend I finally got to take one with Mackenzie. It’s so rare that we ever get time away from work, so it was really a treat to spend a couple days off together – especially before the baby! We took a drive down the coast to Hotel Republic San Diego, a city we’d both only been to briefly for work in the past, but never gotten to really explore.

The hotel itself is so chic – beachy and modern, with a slight hint of the French Riviera. It’s right smack in the middle of downtown San Diego, just steps away from the sea – truly a peaceful place to relax for a few days. If you live in LA, San Diego is a 2-3 hour drive from home. It’s different from LA in that it feels like a beach town, but still has a lively big-city vibe. Mackenzie and I sat on the rooftop at Topside Terrace Kitchen + Bar (where I enviously watched him have a cocktail for happy hour), then headed out to get Italian food in famous Little Italy, for dinner. We were able to walk to the restaurant from the hotel! You don’t often get to do that in LA.

Our mornings were spent lazing around in bed (we ordered yummy room service for breakfast), soaking up the panoramic view of skyscrapers from our corner room, and walking along the harbor, picking out yachts for each other. Getting to the beach in LA can be quite the journey, so we definitely took advantage of the ocean being so close to us. All in all, we loved our trip and can’t wait to go back to Hotel Republic one day – maybe with baby Hunkin in tow!

    As a SD native, looks like you were treated to a relaxing stay…Just what the doctor ordered. Always so many choice venues and just not enough time. Glad you both had a good and productive time. 🙂

  • Belated Mother’s Day surprise trip from @mackenziehunkin, yes please! We loved road-tripping with @silvercar and I was treated to a pretty picnic in the orange groves (thanks babes for being the designated driver!) #silvercarpartner #discoversomethingbetter​
  • One of my biggest saving graces during pregnancy and these first few months with Honor, has been having a solid group of mummy friends to talk to. Things can get lonely, even when you're surrounded by people. Which sounds silly but am I right?! It's so important to have someone who's going through (or gone through) what you are, to share your worries with, go to for advice, or just plain vent to. I was so happy to find the @peanut app, which is a social network for meeting like-minded mummies in your area. I've been using their Pages feature to get advice on everything from going back to work, post-natal fitness, and weaning Honor onto foods. I've had some amazing tips from other mums - I wish their new 'Pregnancy' page had been around when I was pregnant! If you're pregnant, or a new mummy, get on @peanut and share your tips with me! #peanutapp
  • I did it! Thank you Queen of color @lorrigoddard_ for making me blonde for the summer
