Another weekend has come and gone, and with it, some HUGE news! Read on to find out in the top five things that made me happy this past weekend.
1. A work excursion to Karl Strauss Brewery
Since technically this happened on Thursday evening, I guess you could say my weekend kicked off with a trip to Karl Strauss brewery on Thursday for what else-- a work event! Man, I really love my industry. HubSpot, the leader in inbound marketing and sales software, hosted an event for Inbound Marketing Week at this popular local San Diego brewery. A lineup of awesome speakers (my absolute favorite was Bridget Ayers, founder of Get Smart Workspaces and Instagram marketing pro), good beer and some out-of-office work time made this Thursday an automatic win.
2. Some quality PB time

Pacific Beach, or PB for short, is the neighborhood where I live in San Diego. As the name implies, it's a beach town, and since it's the area I live in, it's often all too easy to take it for granted. On Saturday (while waiting to get my car's oil changed, yay adulthood!), I spent some quality time wandering the boardwalk and taking in all the elements and beauty that I often overlook. It's hard not to feel lucky after a day like this.
3. This ad from Jake's Del Mar
While hanging out at my favorite local coffee shop, I thumbed through Locale Magazine and found this ad for Jake's Del Mar. What's pictured is literally the exact meal I ordered when I dined there last Friday.. I guess I have pretty good taste, y'all! Also I've always really appreciated a good print-ad; this one is top-notch.
4. Book Club
My inner English major and literature nerd came out to play at this month's book club meeting on Sunday. My roommates and I hosted a lively (and well-fed) discussion of The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawking. If you enjoy the "psychological thriller" genre, go out and purchase this book immediately. I honestly think I read it in four days. That compelling.
Don't mind me-- homemaker and book club host extraordinaire! Kidding...
5. And finally... Mike is a homeowner!
Well technically, a condo owner, but after a hefty search and application process, he is now the proud owner of a beautiful condo in North Pacific Beach! (read: the fancy part of PB). I am so excited for him, and I can't wait to share pictures of this spot after everything becomes official. Spoiler alert: the view is to DIE for. Mike won't be back in San Diego until June, and we aren't planning on living together right away, but still this is such a huge achievement for him and I am ecstatic that things worked out seemingly just the way they were supposed to.
Happy Monday, everyone! What are you still smiling about from this weekend?
