LAST MINUTE TRIP TO CALI

Ok, so not to make any of you mothers jealous but my friends and I planned this trip to California in less than 45 minutes! We chose any city close to the ocean, booked a hotel room, packed and left all within 45 minutes. We left St. George at 7:30pm on Friday night and arrived in Long Beach at 2am. Our hotel room overlooked the ocean so we accomplished our goal of getting a room with a great view. The next day (after sleeping in a little of coarse...again, don't be jealous!) we started driving up Pacific Coast Highway. We stopped at a little mexican restaurant I think called "Rosa's" (or something like that probably?!?) hoping for some really good authentic mexican food. I'm not sure about the "really good" part but it was authentic alright! We really didn't care though because seriously we were just glad to be on vacation ...(and glad to have something to eat.)

After lunch we kept driving north (I think) passing through Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach (where we stopped to eat yummy yogurt at pinkberry) and ended at Santa Monica Pier. LOVED Santa Monica Pier! We had so much fun. For dinner we ordered take out from California Pizza Kitchen and took it down to the beach at sunset. The ocean was beautiful, the weather was perfect, the shopping was therapeutic and overall this trip rates as a top 5 on my favorite trips list!!

My advice to those who always have to have a plan.... CHANGE! It's great to just wing it sometimes.

It was AWESOME!!! Enjoy the pics...

It's good for you to make your married friends jealous once and a while. I'm just not sure what I'm more jealous about...the fact that you can just up-and-go....or the fact that you got to sleep in! :) But seriously, I'm glad you had a blast!! You're such a cutie! Great Pics!
