Margaritas, Losing My Virginity, and Beaches.

To post vacation photos or to not post vacation photos? This is today's afternoon debate. Trivial stuff I know. I think I am going to go with posting them because if one day my computer crashes and all of my pictures are lost, I am going to be all sorts of ticked off with myself for never loading them onto my blog. Anything that I want to remember permanently, it goes here. Which would not explain why 99.9% of the other stuff that winds up on this blog is here. Regardless, I am posting some vacation pictures today. I may or may not get tears in my eyes when I look at them. How do you make yourself not have a desire to live somewhere you really want to live? If anybody has pointers let me know. This discontent heart of mine could use your help.

Without further ado, I present to you our #SoCal (all the kids are doing it) trip. Also, thank you for allowing me to break all sorts of Blog etiquette when I dump entirely way too many photos below. It's one giant vacation rolled into one even more giant blog post. 

pssst...real quick, if you want to participate in the blogger happy hour happening Tuesday evening at 9 pm EST with Bonnie and I, use the code HAPPY for $5 off your spot. See you then :)

  7. Don't you just LOVE the Hotel Del??? We went there every Sunday for ice cream when we lived in San Diego. Miss that place so much. And In-N-Out is a must. At least once and I hope someone told you about the secret menu so you didn't miss out on the real experience.

  28. You need to "Just Do It." Move here. Cali really is a great place to live. Well, except for the earthquakes, the fact that the sate is going broke and the sever drought. It really does have perfect weather and mountains and the beach. I say start packing and move out here. You'll love it.

  29. Did anyone tell you about the secret menu at In and Out. I hope so. I wouldn't eat at any other fast food place Glad you got to eat fresh food. :)

  30. I have never been to Cali and it looks just lovely. I think I may have to put that trip on my wish list(: Susan

  31. I'm craving In-N-Out soooo effing badly right now. Here's the true secret of the place - the more you have it, the more you NEED it all the fricken time. And I so get it about posting pictures you want to keep forever - screw external hard drives, the Internet is the way to go!

  32. This just reminds me of the time (everyday) that I beg hubs to let us move to Anaheim. We could go and ditch the guys? #YOLO :) Looks like a perfect vacation!

  41. We live down here in So Cal, Fullerton, we go to the Balboa peninsula almost every weekend, we love it that much! We wish we could live there, but its pretty pricy, maybe someday!:) The best thing to do is rent beach cruisers and ride around all day up and down the coast and around all the beautiful houses! Glad you had fun here! :)

  45. I just got back a little over a week ago from visiting my best friend in SoCal and we had small plates and beverages within walking distance of The Deck -- The Rooftop Lounge. Nothing more awesome that great company, the Pacific at sunset, and delicious things to eat and drink! (We won't talk about how there was an earthquake the following evening while we were at Disneyland.)

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
