San Diego Recap!

Happy Monday Lovelies!

I hope you all had a great weekend...do anything fun?  I had a great time in San Diego this weekend, celebrating my sister-in-law's law school graduation.  Here are some highlights...

We stayed at the Hilton Waterfront
and I was super impressed with how beautiful the property was...the vibe was very modern and clean.  These orchids greeted as in the lobby...love! 

 There was a gorgeous architectural feature when you first entered the lobby as well...so whimsical!  The hotel is located on the water and across from the street from Petco Park...I highly recommend it!
 
 My sis-in-law graduated from University of San Diego which has beautiful grounds...I especially struck by these beautiful agave plants.

And the views were not bad either!

Beautiful arrangements were put together for the graduation party...you know I am loving these peonies!

The views from the party were stunning too!  We had two private cabanas at C Level which I definitely recommend if you're ever looking for a great restaurant in San Diego.  The food was amazing!

Another shot of the flower arrangement and views.

We had a Sunday Brunch at El Camino which is a funky and vibrant Mexican Restaurant.  We all enjoyed $1 mimosas and Bloody Marias!

Perhaps the best part about the restaurant is that there is an open-air patio where planes fly overhead right before they land.  It's quite the spectical!

We definitely enjoyed our trip and I am so inspired by all the my sister-in-law has accomplished...she takes the bar in July and then she's ready to take on the world.  I know she'll make an amazing attorney!  :)
