San Diego Neighborhoods: Mission Valley

It's been a little while now since my last San Diego neighborhood post, so I thought it was time to feature another one. These photos were taken when Jon and I spent one of our date days in Mission Valley. Mission Valley was the sight of the first Spanish settlement in 1769. It was originally called La Canada de San Diego but was changed to Mission Valley in the 1860s. Up until the 1940s the land was used by dairy farmers but mostly remained underdeveloped. Today it's home to the biggest shopping attraction in San Diego - Fashion Valley Mall. This is where we were headed when we took these photos. There's also the Old Town San Diego State Historic Park which we'll have to check out the next time that we're over there.

I love this picture of Jon entering the shadow while the shadow person is exiting the bus! They are both walking away from each other. It's so expressive yet subtle yet eerie. It's weird how bad photos can sometimes be so interesting. I think most people would look a this and see Jon's back and just delete the photo with out really looking at what's really going on.

I bought this awesome bag at the cafe where I work! The leather work is so detailed and pretty. I just love it!

This week has been another super busy one. Once again I've worked 5 shifts at both jobs...making that 10 shifts in 5 days....it's driving me a little crazy right now, but I know things are going to slow down at the theatre after the Oscars so I should be grateful while I'm getting so many shifts. It's just so hard to never see Jon or the little ones ever. :(

Jon and I made plans to go to Seal Beach this Thursday to see the seals and sea lions...but he has to be lame and work on a screen play. Hopefully next Thursday we'll make it out there.

Has anyone seen the oscar shorts? I watched them last week and was pretty disappointed with both the live action and the animated. I look forward to them all year, so it was a bit of a let down.

What's your vote for best picture? I want Tree of Life to win.
