beach bound!

in a few hours i'll be heading down to carlsbad for a much anticipated vacation! one thing i love about living in los angeles is that some of the greatest travel destinations in the country are within driving distance of my house. the carlsbad/san diego area is definitely one of my favorites!

[our hotel]

we're packed, the car is loaded, the tank is full, we have our sunscreen, tanning oil, and a surplus of magazines to enjoy by the pool...we are set! now we just have to get off of work [praying for a surprise half day (which usually happens before a work holiday!] and we'll be on our way!

i hope all of you enjoy your time off! remember the true meaning of memorial day and say a thank you to the men and women who bravely gave their lives so that we can live ours. i'm eternally grateful.


  • i am in LVE with the new katy perry song, california gurls! i think it's so fun and perfect for summer!
  • the lovely jennifer at southern living: preppy style is giving away a pair of gorgeous earrings by kate puck! check out her blog and enter for your chance to win!
  • oh, and as a side note, i've added a current giveaways page to the top of my blog instead of having the links on my sidebar. i'll keep it updated so be sure to check it out!
  • after reading all of your reviews and seeing pictures, i am dying to see sex and the city 2...even more than i was before. i think i'll be seeing it sunday!
i don't know if i'll be updating/reading blogs before tuesday so i want to wish all of you a very happy weekend!! enjoy every minute!

I'm a little jealous of your weekend. It's something I miss about being in California. And of course I love the new Katy Perry song as well

Aw! Have a wonderful, wonderful vacation!!! The photo of your hotel looks beautiful.

Thank you dear friend for stopping by and for your sweet comment! My goal is to have the quilts completed for future grandbabies (although, doing it for a crib size, is actually a "cop out" cuz it would take me even longer to get them to a twin size! lol)

And again I have to say...I am sooo glad to have met you in this wonderful world of blogging. I only wish I had more "free" time (since I try to not be on the computer too much when my hubby and I are both home from work that limits blogging time), so I try to keep up with the current memes I join with and try to keep up with comments left.

Blessings & Aloha!
Stay safe too on your travels :o)

That's what I love about where I live. We're an hour from the U.S. border so we can travel there, plus Minneapolis is just another six hour drive.

I wish someone would write a "connecticut girls" song, but we're just not as exciting as you all :)

enjoy your weekend!

I have been playing that Katy Perry song nonstop, too! Too funny. Hope you have a wonderful time down in SD!
