Late post - Anniversary Weekend

Ahhh...wish I was back in HMB at the Ritz. Not many instances in which I can say

Last weekend (10/9) marked the five year anniversary for Leon and I. Leon was such a sweet hubby and spoiled me all weekend at the Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay. We arrived on Friday and the weather was PERFECT. So sunny and nice. While we were waiting to check in, we walked around the grounds (which are beautiful if you have never been). Tank was lucky enough to tag along and he was lovin' life.

After checking in, a beautiful bouquet of flowers was delivered to the room (from Leon of course!). That evening we went to dinner at Pasta Moon in downtown. We came back and snuggled up next to the fire pit on our patio and made some s'mores. Yum!

The next morning we took a trip to the beach and Tank was having a really great time. Highlight was seeing a whole lot of dolphins playing in the water. Later, we had massages and manicures (even Leon), then dinner at Navio. They were very sweet and brought us an anniversary gift (truffles) at dinner.

Sunday came and we indulged in the Ritz's famous Sunday brunch. Quite the spread! If you are a seafood lover, this is the place for you. We stuffed ourselves and it was time to head back from our paradise.

Here's to five years with my hubby - love him! :)

A's b-day & retirement celebration

Not for me, but I am jealous. Yesterday marked the last day of our friend Angie's working life...FOREVER. It was also a belated b-day celebration for Angie from last week. We had dinner at Calafia which was yummy. The staff thought we were joking about Angie's retirement, but the smile radiating from Angie told us that for sure, she is looking forward to the non-working life. Congrats Angie and happy belated!
