I Almost Forgot What Sunshine Felt Like

 dress: stitch fix

And we made it! I can't even begin to tell you how good warm air feels, how great the ocean smells, and how bright the sunshine is. There is hope people of Northern Indiana...hope that all of us will get a brain and move to Southern California. I would be lying if I didn't say the first 24 hours of the trip have been spent looking at homes for sale and jobs available online. Somewhere in between our Google searches we have laid out poolside, drank jalapeno margaritas, watched a sunset over the ocean, and fell asleep before 8 pm which would explain why I have been up since 4 am. This three hour time change thing is tricky tricky. 

Today's agenda involves kayaking on the lake we are staying at, dining waterside in San Diego, and sitting in the hot tub for as long as possible in between the two. It's going to be a rough day....

To ensure yours is just as exciting, here is some fun stuff (and cash) for you to win. There are a ton of amaze ladies in this line-up below so make sure to take some time to discover their blogs, you won't be sorry.

Cheers to a great day friends.
