Hello, friends! Time for a Sunday Funday post!
Disclaimer: I don't really love Sundays. I'd rather the tradition be "Saturday Funday" but that doesn't really roll off the tongue now does it? Don't get me wrong, I love the weekend, sleeping in, doing whatever I want to do, but I'm constantly reminded on Sunday that Monday is around the corner and I only have one more day to go do fun things. I feel rushed to make the most of the day! ~Le Sigh~
Usually, I love getting up early to get a head start on things, but that doesn't happen if I've gone out two nights in a row. LOL. So on this Sunday we didn't set an alarm, woke up late, made smoothies for breakfast and watched Spongebob in bed until noon. What a time to be alive! Once our laziness had reached a limit, I decided it was time for us to go do something active. We grabbed our skateboards, threw them in the 4Runner, and headed for Coronado. Can I throw a shoutout to my husband Jordan for being the most chill person ever? He never gripes or complains when I make a plan. So nice.
I chose Coronado because it has nicely paved neighborhood streets that are easy to ride down (it's also where we got married. Hello, nostalgia!). We could've skateboarded around Mission Bay, but I fell on my butt last time in front of people at a certain house and now I can't show my face there again for a while. Pride is really funny. *Cries*
We parked on a random street filled with colorful seaside homes and lined with mature, green trees. It's always fun to drive past them and dream about which one you would own if you were rich. Perhaps someday. Or perhaps I'll live in an apartment the rest of my life *rants about the rising housing costs in San Diego*.
I was a little wobbly on my board since I haven't skated in a while (and my trucks are super loose), but it was still a fun ride. We skated down a few streets to the bayside and looked out over downtown San Diego. What a view. It's even better at night.
~ side note: This is a really fun, low-key and low-budget date. You don't have to skateboard - you could bike instead! This city is pretty bike-friendly. It's really relaxing to take a couple of beach cruisers around the island and park them somewhere while you get food. You can ride from one side of the island to the other, it's not too far! ~
The cloudy marine layer started to burn off around 1 pm so it was getting a little too warm for my liking (if you're not from here, google "marine layer san diego" and you'll KNOW). We skated back to the car and drove to Orange Ave for lunch!
We went straight to my fave sandwich shop, Which Wich. Yeah yeah, I know it's a chain. The horror! It's so flippin good OKAY!? Things have changed a bit since I've been there last, so now they have a bunch of different menu options to choose from instead of doing just a custom-made sandwich. I got the Green Goddess Chicken Salad sandwich and oOOOoooh BOY I do believe I am obsessed. Bless the Lord above for this 'wich. Maybe it was so good because I was starving. Regardless, order this one.
Overall, this last-minute activity was 10/10. It would've been 12/10 if it had been a perfectly sunny day, but you can't have everything I guess. I really had nothing planned for the day, but sometimes it's fun to come up with things last minute and see it through. I lean towards being non-spontaneous (my agenda is planned out months in advance), but I'll give it a whirl every now and then. I think I did a bang-up job. Is that the phrase? I think I’ve been watching too much of “The Great British Baking Show”.
Anyways, we made it a swell day and I tried to keep the "Sunday scaries" at bay. Stay posted for more weekend adventures to come!
The best adventures are ahead,
