mini vacay

sooo as many of you know i had a mini vacay this past weekend w/ the BF (brandon, or what i call him Bran)....originally we were suppose to go to Lake Tahoe to stay at the cabin, but the weather looked crappy & i didn't feel like sitting in traffic...so we changed our plans...I'm originally from Northern California - Lafayette to be exact....Lafayette, Moraga & Orinda or Lamorinda as we call is is such an adorable place to grow up....its a small wealthy town perfect for families....so since I hadn't been home in over 2 years, we just decided to stay & do the "norcal" thing....my BF & I are both from the same town - we went to rival high schools, however we didn't meet each other until a few years into college...more on that story later...so since you didn't get to be with me on my mini vacay here are some highlights from our trip....

First stop - the yacht club to say hello to the BF's sailboat No Worries...i love spicy bloody marys

Rose, my BF's childhood dog

rose was excited to see us

brandons backyard

we took BART to the city

hello San Francisco! shopping is better in LA/OC tho...

we road the trolley, something i haven't done since i was little...we were complete tourists

riding the trolley to The Tonga Room

The Tonga Room at The Fair mount Hotel

I'm really not much of a drinker, but they had such fun tropical drinks

Next day we had a lot to do & a lot of relatives to see

Stopped at one of the amazing views of the bay

we drove by the house i grew up in

there use to be a wooden swing hanging from this tree

got to hang with Brandons sister Lauren

then Lauren & i went thru baby pictures of my BF...ahh i just wanna grab his little cheeks

before my love affair with starbucks there was Caffino, a local drive-thru coffee shop

<3 <3 <3

soooo that's a little bit from my trip....i did OF COURSE go shopping, and spent some money at the Free People store....but you'll have to stay tuned this week for my post on my Northern California shopping! sooo now I'm back home in socal...it was a great trip but i am SO happy to be home...there's no where better

Glad you had a fun trip! Mini vacas are the best for "rebooting!"

Fun! Sometimes it's great to just explore where you're from. I know I've lived in the LA area my whole life so I just think, I'll see it later. There is so much I've never experienced right in my backyard :)

Alexa said...

A cat rescuer AND messy dirty hair? Yeah, count me in. I have a couple feral rescues I took in off the streets. Okay they came in the house and took me in, but I had to trap and transport when I left two years later. They really are the best. Are you on instagram or twitter? Would love to follow! -Carrie
