This Weekend

We took my parent's to the Hunger Games at midnight as a part of their Christmas present

We had a lot going on this weekend, but since the events were relatively relaxing and enjoyable it wasn't overwhelming. Thursday night/Friday morning we took my mom and dad to the Hunger Games opening. We all read the books and since Scott and I got my parents 'dinner and a movie' for Christmas, this seemed the perfect occasion to see one. We all really enjoyed it, even though we had the front row, neck-breaker seats. Have you seen it? If so, what did you think? 
     Saturday morning Scott and I attended the San Diego Shine event hosted by Ashely. It was  great to be back at our old stomping grounds, since Scott and I met and lived in Mission Beach for five years. This fact allowed picking up cigarettes, soiled food wrappers and beer bottles to be kind of romantic since we cleaned and talked about early memories of us at the same time. "Oh, remember the time we did that flip-cup tournament at that house?" it mostly went something like that. The weather wasn't bad either, and it felt good to clean a place we love so much.
Another high point of the cleanup was seeing many of my favorite bloggers! I totally spaced and forgot to take a picture with them (total blogger fail), but I know we will see each other again soon. After the cleanup, we met our friends at our boat to celebrate Brian and Jess's engagement. 
On Sunday we surfed some freezing pre-storm waves before I left to help with Roxy's Let The Sea Set You Free tour. Overall, it was a really nice, busy weekend.

What did you do this weekend?

p.s. Thank you all for your thoughtful and encouraging comments on Friday's post. You really made my day.


  1. Looks like a fabulous weekend! Your pictures are always so beautiful.

  2. so awesome seeing you and meeting your husband (: did you guys go to one of those fancy schmancy movie theaters (i only ask because, hello there white couch that doesnt belong in a movie theater.. at least one i've never been to).. was it cool/awesome?!

    i havent read the books, yet, but i've added them to my list!

    1. So great seeing you and your hubby! Next time I want to make more time to hang out. See? I'm already getting excited for next time.
      Yes we went to a new Cinepolis by our house. Those things are popping up everywhere around here. Normally I'm not down to pay $19 for one movie ticket, but since it was a special occasion and gift it was perfect. I had to keep reminding myself not to get too used to the comfy, reclining seats, personal waiter, drink and dinner menu and gourmet popcorn. It was actually very awesome and I recommend it for special movies and occasions for sure.

  3. I went fishing but didn't catch anything lol Great pictures by the way :)


  4. you & your husband are adorable. :)) You make me so jealous every time I look at your blog. I'm from Carlsbad so I really miss the beach. Looks like you had a fun weekend!

  5. I still haven't decided whether I want to read the books first and then watch the movie or vice versa... decisions, decisions, decisions hehe ;)

  6. What a fun weekend, Devon! I <3 SD. But I really love your "romantic" conversations with Scott while cleaning the beach. Ha!

    And guess what? I went to my first Houston blogger meet-up on Sunday! Hooray for blog friends!

  7. Hey girl! I told you I love your blog- but to read about the hunger games (I just saw the movie last night and I'm the biggest nerd about the books!) and then your beach cleanup, I just had to say how awesome it sounds like your weekend was, and how cool it was to run into you again!
    I love writing also; I volunteer for two magazines (one in Baltimore and one out here in San Diego!) So, coming from a fellow writer- you are very good at articulating things and making them fun and interesting to read. I really like your style, and it's no wonder you have a solid group of followers.

    I also read your last post, and I admire your courage to follow your heart. I think we all have to go through things like that in our lives to make us remember what's really important, and what makes us feel alive. Because making money is great, but there is just SO much more to life, and you seem to be so passionate about every day that I think it was a necessary decision. Better things will come along in life's ebbs and flows, but just being positive and doing what makes you happy is truly the foundation for a life well lived.

    Of course, I'm at work! Haha, I told you I always read it here! Anyway, keep shredding and being yourself. You're a wonderful inspiration :)


  8. I love your blog, and just wanted to let you know I'm a new follower! I'm from southern california, love animals and have gone back and forth from being a vegetarian many times. Looking forward to your recipes and reading about someone I can relate to :).
