California Trip - Our B&B

To celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary, Dave and I made a quick trip without the kids to California over the weekend.  We are so thankful to Dave's parents for watching the girls and allowing us this opportunity to get away.  It was amazing - SO peaceful and relaxing!

We left Friday morning, and after quite the adventure at getting our rental car at Hertz, AND a bazillion hours stuck in traffic, we made it to San Diego.  Our first stop was at our Bed and Breakfast - Britt Scripps Inn.  It was AMAZING!  The building is a historical landmark, and the Inn has been restored and updated but still has wonderful charm and historical elegance.  It was just the place we wanted to stay - and so far from the "mainstream".

Here are some photos of the grounds.

Perfect little spot for a small wedding, don't you think?

The interior of the house was also beautiful.  There was a sitting room where they hold a wine and cheese hour every night.  (We were heading to dinner so we didn't stay, and I didn't get photos because other couples were there).  The Inn also has an amazing staircase with full wall of stained glass behind.

This is the dining room where our breakfast was served.

Here are pictures of our room...  We were in the Golden Oak room on the main floor.  It was small, but so nice.  I loved the light fixtures especially.

The bathroom alone was spectacular.  As odd as it sounds, I wanted to just hang out in there.  It was so pretty!  And that shower - wow.  To DIE for...  Even the heated towel rack was great. 

Tomorrow, I'll share more photos of our trip!  I feel like the B&B deserved a post all to itself.  If you are in San Diego and want to stay you can see their website here.  It was spectacular, and we definitely want to visit again.
