for new years eve this year, my boyfriend and i headed up to palomar mountain to ring in the new years with friends and family. dylan spent the first years of his life living on the mountain and it was so fun to explore it with him. i had never been to palomar mountain before, but it's safe to say i fell in love. we stayed at bailey's resort, a family owned resort with plenty of cabins and guest houses. it was old, quaint and had breathtaking views. the weather was wet and gloomy, not exactly ideal for hiking and exploring, but we managed to walk around the resort and check out some of the cabins and endless beauty. the best part? it snowed right before midnight! what a great way to celebrate a new year!!

last sunday me and 6 of my closest friends hit the zoo for a day of fun. it's been about 6 years since i've been to the sd zoo so it's safe to say i was overly excited to spend a day there. not to mention, they serve beer! what could be better than an ice cold beer on a hot day while you look at super cute animals? we had such a fun time and i can't wait to go again!
here are some of my favorite pictures from the day. it's so crazy to me that these animals are so big and majestic. my favorites were definitely the elephants and meerkats - opposites, no less! and did you know, a group of meerkats is called a mob? might have been my favorite factoid from the day!

saturday night was one for the books! my man-friend and i hit up the annual oc brew hee haw at the orange country fair and had the time of our lives. there were 80 local breweries there handing out samples of at least 2 of their best beers. it was so much fun talking to local brewers, sampling beers i've never tasted or even heard of before, and getting to spend time at the fair. we even ended the night with giant corndogs and a couple rounds of carnival games! all in all, an a+ evening!!
