|Academy of Our Lady Peace, San Diego (Wedding Venue)|
This weekend, we both came to San Diego for the actual wedding weekend. After a delay on Southwest, we arrived in San Diego at lunchtime. Rip and Linda picked us up and we had lunch at El Indio. Yum! SMS and I shared several Mexican food items- a tamale, enchilada and California burrito (steak, fries, cheese). We only ate half of the burrito though but never fear, it was still at least three pounds of food!
After lunch, we headed back to the Homestead where we spent a lazy afternoon. SMS and I headed out to the rehearsal around 4:30. The rehearsal started at 5 and I very quickly realized that it was going to be a long one. So, I texted a residency friend and we met up for Sangria at Cueva- a much better plan! We caught up on work gossip and talked about our respective new jobs coming up this Summer. It was so great to see her and I really had a great time.
SMS texted a "SOS" so I headed back to the Church. The head camp counselor, aka the wedding coordinator, still had about 20 minutes of talking left but finally, we made it out of there. We went to Kahn's Cave for the rehearsal dinner. It's an Asian fusion/tapas type place and it was really tasty. I liked the sesame chicken and the calamari the best. The beer came in close second. I had a milk stout and a Belgian gold style- eclectic choices but delicious.
It was great to catch up with the bride and groom, plus his sister who's a really close friend of mine. After dinner, we headed home and went to bed. I slept well, which was great after a really tiring week.
