California Recap

I am returning to Virginia with more California memories, a smile on my face and one serious sunburn. Our long awaited trip back West for a cousin's wedding has come and gone and we had an absolute blast! No doubt, we were not happy to have to leave our little paradise with family members and friends we haven't seen in almost 2 years! But the plane, work, and real life were awaiting us.

The ceremony took place at Historic Hotel Laguna right on the water in Laguna Beach, California. I would be lying if I said I didn't want to go back and watch reruns of Laguna Beach now {my inner 16 year old was super giddy and wishing I would run into a cast member or two...shhh don't tell} Although I had driven through Laguna a number of times this was my first stay in the little artsy town.

After a beautiful wedding we enjoyed the reception over looking the water with drinks, yummy food, and the ever so popular photo booth. We had a blast!

Now you see where my boyfriend gets his good looks, huh? I mean I might be a little biased but that is one good lookin' bunch! 

The day after the wedding was geared towards catching up with family and friends and soaking up some California sunshine. Right behind us is the famous view of Laguna -- we are kinda covering up the Laguna Lifeguard stand I'm sure you have all seen on TV-- oops! 

As I have mentioned time and time again, you can't keep this girl away from the beach for too long.  My boyfriend and I have frequented beaches up and down the East and West Coast and it never fails we take a corny 'couples beach shot.' Babe laughs and thinks they all look the same but each one holds memories from the entire beach stay! Silly boys just don't understand do they? {hehe} 
Enjoying my Pina Colada and some beach service...ahh the life... 

By Sunday night we had hugged and kissed our family and friends Good-Bye and it was just the two of us again. We showered {a quite painful shower with this sunburn I might add} and got ready to walk the hills of Laguna. We ended our stay with this gorgeous view from dinner. Looks like a postcard doesn't it?

Now that our vacation has come and gone I can get back to blogging and to my kiddos at school. Wait, I don't quite think I am ready to get back to real life yet.... {siiiigh}

Don't forget to follow my blog so you can see some upcoming outfit for this hot weather that has finally decided to stick around!
