Day Two. Fun In The Sun.

I went to the beach yesterday. Got a little burned. But I’ll blame that on me being super pale and there not being enough sunscreen in the world to protect me! Then I walked back to the house from the beach, which I thought was a lot closer… turns out it was not that close at all. At least I got my exercise for the day because I haven’t been running this week. Whoops…

But the day got better, we went and took a trip into town towards Dana Point, and went to Hobby Lobby, Whole Foods and then the movies :)

We saw Wolverine. And by the way, that movie was pretty  awesome, not very much storyline to it, but its Wolverine, you can’t go wrong with that Marvel character. :)   What did you guys think about the movie? Or any of the Marvel movies in general? My favorite movie would be The Avengers, but my favorite character would have to be Captain America haha.

 

Back on track here… So after the movie we came back to the house, My aunt has fresh lemons she picks from her yard so we had lemonade and then we made a Meyer Lemon Creme Brulee! Yummmmm. Made dinner. Which I made my signature Bruschetta Chicken and Grilled Asparagus haha. And since California apparently doesn’t have sweet potatoes!!!! (I was in shock by the way..) I had to get a white sweet potato, which tasted a little different than the normal ones we get in Texas, but it was good enough for me last night… wasn’t as creamy but it was good nonetheless.

I hope you’ve enjoyed reading about my adventures. I will have another soon :)

Have a good day!

Day One… Announcement!

So did you guys guess where I’m at yet?!

well…. I’m in Laguna Beach, California! Vacation at its finest :)

I’ve had quite the time here so far, my plane was delayed and had some issues along with that haha and we ended up finally getting off of the plane at 12:13 pm when we were supposed to be getting here at 9:05 am.. Craziness. The passengers, as well as myself were not that happy.  But nonetheless we are here and I’m having a ton of fun :)

We have been to farmers markets and a bunch of little shops around the beach area. Went to Main Beach today and I got to join a pick up game of sand volleyball with some students studying abroad from Switzerland, Germany, England and China! That was really really cool and exciting to hear their stories!   Watched the Pageant of Arts play-type thing, which was absolutely fabulous.  They showed famous works of art, but the people painted in the regular ones were replaced with actual people painted just like it! Standing still in the same position, not moving a single muscle… How is that even possible?! You couldn’t even see the people breathing! Insane. BUT so awesome.  Had an adventure on the trolley ride home with some drunk people getting a little too ambitious with their words haha but it was really funny.

Now for pictures! Because I know thats the best part :)
