Room With A View

August 5, 2011

I spent 4.9 hours in a cramped window seat switching positions every 10 minutes. MAN was that a long flight! Thankfully going east is swifter!

But the view was nice!!

I ate my sandwich and plum at "dinnertime" and read nearly 300 pages of my book (As Husbands Go by Susan Isaacs)

Thanks so much to Tammy for picking me up at the airport! The SD airport is SO convenient – only a few miles from the city! My bag was also one of the first out. Those two things made up for the long flight : )

I had to do a quick turnaround though because I had a big date to get to – a KERF reader date!

I took a quick look at the beautiful view of my hotel room and headed back downstairs

I met this fun bunch of ladies for a walk and some froyo!

Lorin, Kelley, Kaitlyn, Averie, Katie, Tammy, Jeanna, Meredith

We strolled along the waterfront and then ended our outing at Pinkberry!

Salted Caramel!! With sea salt and choco chips

Totally delicious! I loved the texture too. It’s neck and neck with Sweet Frog!

Check out this amazing floor!!

Fun fun times

Man I am exhausted!! I have emails in my inbox and they’re just going to have to sit there. PSA: traveling is not the best time to email me with questions : )

Somehow I signed up for a 5K run at 6:30 tomorrow morning. I think I have juuuust enough time for 7.5 hours of sleep – if I get in my bed NOW!

Fun fun! Can’t wait to get there!!


2 Lorin August 5, 2011 at 12:44 am

It was a fun night, nice to finally get to meet you as a second attempt! I hope you enjoy San Diego and the conference.


3 Kari @ bite-sized thoughts August 5, 2011 at 12:54 am

I sympathise with the flight thing…but felt the need to comment that 5 hours in Australia is pretty standard, and even then you’re still in the country! Shorter trips must be one of the many advantages of living in a bigger but more populated place like America :)

I hope you enjoy your conference and San Diego (the frozen yoghurt looked like a nice welcome!).


4 Alex August 5, 2011 at 1:05 am

Wow, sounds like a fun day. I absolutely LOVE Pinkberry, it’s my favorite FroYo shop by far. Good luck with your race tomorrow!


5 Hannah August 5, 2011 at 1:13 am

Have a great time! The frozen yogurt looks great.


6 J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) August 5, 2011 at 1:34 am

Looks like a fun time! Pinkberry is fantastic. I wish we had one nearby, but then again it’s probably good (for me) that we don’t. haha :)


7 Allison August 5, 2011 at 2:02 am

I LOVE Pinkberry. IF you go back, try the pomegranate–it’s my favorite!


8 jenna k August 5, 2011 at 3:00 am

caramel froyo sounds amazing!!


9 Jumanah @ Healthy Living in the Middle East August 5, 2011 at 3:26 am

Looks like your stay in SD started off super fun! Nothings better than frozen yogurt!


10 Aine @ Something to Chew Over August 5, 2011 at 3:42 am

Yum that Pinkberry looks so good!

Have a great run :)


11 Brittany @ Itty Bits of Balance August 5, 2011 at 4:27 am

Look! It’s Averie!

That’s the BEST when your luggage is the first to come out on the conveyer belt thing :) I hate awkwardly standing around waiting for my bag with a whole bunch of strangers


12 Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga August 5, 2011 at 5:27 am

Kath it was wonderful seeing you tonight and meeting up with everyone else!

The stroll (and those stairs..haha!) was lovely and I may even have snapped that pic of you with your pinkberry? holding it? If so, it turned out. Whew. :) Glad you have a shot with the coveted Pinkberry.

Your parting PSA about emailing you with questions…the past 3 weeks I have taken two trips (one international) and I have packed and moved! into a new house. And it never fails, the minute I get on an airplane, I get tons of emails from people with questions :) I totally know what you mean on that one!

I hope you have an awesome day and in just a few hours…you’ll be up…and running. Have fun!



13 Lauren @ What Lauren Likes August 5, 2011 at 5:35 am

Salted carmel?! yum! good luck on the run tommorow


14 Jennifer August 5, 2011 at 5:49 am

That long flight, time zone differences, evening out and then a 5k run in the morning?? You’re amazing!!! :) Hope you have a fun and exciting day!!


15 robin August 5, 2011 at 6:07 am

16 robin August 5, 2011 at 6:10 am

Wish we had a pinkberry.


17 Simply Life August 5, 2011 at 6:16 am

Looks like a great time!


18 lauri ( August 5, 2011 at 6:19 am

Fun! I been to lots n lots of fro yo places, but I don’t think I’ve been to the famous pinkberry yet! We have menchie’s, 32degrees, and a couple otheres though!


19 Holly @ The Runny Egg August 5, 2011 at 6:32 am

Honestly even a 1 hour flight seems long to me — I just get so antsy in airplanes.

I’m glad the meetup went well — I’m super jealous that you met Averie!!!


20 Hannah August 5, 2011 at 6:46 am

You all have such pretty hair!


21 Sweet and Savvy August 5, 2011 at 6:55 am

Good luck On the run! That fro yo Looks Awesome. :) I’ve never had pinkberry. :(


22 Claire @ Live and Love to Eat August 5, 2011 at 6:55 am

I’ve never had the original Pinkberry, so jealous! Hope the 5k went well!


23 Ashley August 5, 2011 at 6:59 am

I also read Averie’s blog so its so funny to look at your pictures and see her. Then go to her site and read about her plans to meet up with you!!! Never had Pinkberry, South Jersey has Spoon Me!


24 Shayla @ The Good Life August 5, 2011 at 7:02 am

Yay so happy you tried the salted caramel!! :)

My hubby and I stayed right there at that Hard Rock hotel for our honeymoon. We seriously had Pinkberry everyday…it was so hard not to with it being right there!


25 Ash @ Good Taste Healthy Me August 5, 2011 at 7:04 am

Have fun! :)


26 Katherine August 5, 2011 at 7:13 am

Salted caramel – sounds awesome!


27 Cait's Plate August 5, 2011 at 7:14 am

We went to San Diego this past November from New Jersey and the flight felt TORTUROUS! I’m just too antsy to sit in a tiny little seat like that for so long! Of course it’s always worth it once you’re there but I definitely relate to feeling super crampy and ready to just get up!

That Pinkberry combination of flavors looks absolutely incredible. Seriously – it’s 8AM and I haven’t eaten breakfast yet and now that’s all I want…haha.

Have so much fun and ENJOY yourself!


28 Cait @ Beyond Bananas August 5, 2011 at 7:15 am

Have so much fun and best of luck in the5K :)


29 Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table August 5, 2011 at 7:18 am

Pinkberry has salted caramel?! I need to be better about keeping on top of their flavors. :)

I expecially like that they offer whipped cream – my favorite topping (aside from PB).


30 Sarah@The Flying ONION August 5, 2011 at 7:18 am

Good luck with the 5k!! It’s a great way to stretch out and “unwind” after a plane ride, I’m sure. And have fun! 😀


31 Jenn August 5, 2011 at 7:35 am

I know the feeling. Longest flight ever…imagine it with an 8 month old who wants out of my lap more than I want out of my seat ;P So is the conference at the Conference Center? That place is huge. Looks like you’re staying in the GasLamp district :)

Have fun. Levi ate an Oatmeal Smoothie this morning and we thought of you.


32 Sarah August 5, 2011 at 7:38 am

It’s so awesome you can go anywhere and be surrounded by friends. I love it!


33 Erika @ The Teenage Taste August 5, 2011 at 7:40 am

Salted Caramel fro-yo?! Oh my gosh! I must try that! :-)

Good luck at the 5K race, Kath! I’m sure you’ll kill it! 😀


34 Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife August 5, 2011 at 7:50 am

mmmmm fun. I WANT that salted caramel fro yo!!!! NOW :) heh.


35 Margo @ peanut butter trees August 5, 2011 at 7:54 am

Mmm that froyo looks awesome, Yum! Enjoy your morning run and the conference!


36 Hope August 5, 2011 at 7:59 am

Looks like a fun time! The frozen yogurt looks delicious :)


37 Kelley August 5, 2011 at 8:28 am

That was such a fun night! What a great group of girls! Time to get my blogher on! Enjoy the weekend!


38 Cait @ Cait hates Cake August 5, 2011 at 8:35 am

Salted caramel sounds delicious! Hope your run went well his morning, looks like you are already having a good time there!


39 Hillary August 5, 2011 at 8:40 am

I just took my 5th flight in 3 weeks yesterday, so I hear you on the feeling claustrophobic thing. I’m starting to feel like Southwest airplanes are my second home!


40 Gina @ Running to the Kitchen August 5, 2011 at 8:54 am

I’ve been to that Pinkberry, love that floor!


41 lynn @ the actor's diet August 5, 2011 at 9:08 am

43 Ashley August 5, 2011 at 9:58 am

Salted caramel? Best sounding froyo flavor ever! This is making me reallllllly want to make it to Foodbuzz this year. So fun!! Have fun on vacay :)


44 Sarah @ Sarah's Modern Bites August 5, 2011 at 10:32 am

Anything salted with sea salt and the word caramel is my favorite!!


46 Ashley @ Coffee Cake and Cardio August 5, 2011 at 10:41 am

Have a blast!!! I sooooo wish I was there. Y’all must be having a blast.


47 Shannon @ My Place In The Race August 5, 2011 at 10:48 am

I love Pinkberry! We don’t have one here but every time we go to Nashville we stop at one. The shop is just too adorable! And everything is so tasty! 😛


48 rumfunandsun August 5, 2011 at 11:13 am

Enjoy Blohher!! Some day when my blog grows up, it wants me to go hang with all the cool bloggers!!! :-)


49 natalie (the sweets life) August 5, 2011 at 12:09 pm

SD is where I fell in love with Pinkberry! Have an AWESOME time there and if you get a chance…head off the beaten path a bit to Zia’s Gourmet Pizza—one of my favorite pizzas I’ve ever had!


50 Lexi @ A Spoonful of Sunshine August 5, 2011 at 1:07 pm

And here I thought salted caramel fro yo only happened in my dreams. That sounds great, and you ladies look lovely!


51 Angel7 August 5, 2011 at 2:34 pm

I have never been to downtown San Diego, but have heard that it is cool!

I <3 the floor at Pinkberry!


52 Lorin August 5, 2011 at 2:17 am



53 Erin August 5, 2011 at 6:26 am

don’t forget the stress of all those uber important emails about how to stir oats.


54 Marie August 5, 2011 at 7:48 am



55 Lorin August 5, 2011 at 12:46 pm
