Recap: California

Hi, Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend.

{Thank you to all the brave people who have sacrificed their lives for our daily freedom}


Cali was a BLAST.

The weather was beyond perfect....68 and breezy (hello good hair & non shiny faces).

We did as expected & over indulged in all. The eating, drinking & shopping.

I forgot my flippin' camera charger (insert louddd frustrating sigh) so the smart phone had to pull through.

Sorry for the horrible pics, but it's a glimpse of our girls getaway to Sunny Cal!

My fave restaurant was The Ivy. Not only for it's location & frequent celeb sightings, but the patio is awesome and the decor looks like something right out of the South.

Another favorite was Shutters. Right on the beach in Santa Monica, the view is perfect and the food is delightful.

Would highly recommend The Huntley. Great location right across from beach and in the heart of shopping and good eats. Their restaurant, The Penthouse, was tasty too for a quick snack and has a rooftop view of Santa Monica.


As for sightings, we saw Brittany Pierce from Glee and Gilles Marini from Brothers & Sisters, both of whom look exactly as they do on TV.

{This pic is so disturbing i had to post!}

All in all, fabulous trip and I highly recommend Santa Monica. We loved everything about it!

Now back to the grind. Hope you enjoyed a nice getaway or some good R&R with family & friends.

  1. Hi Catie,

    I clicked over to meet you after your sweet comment on Margery.

    How funny that you were in our stompin' grounds! Middle Child lives across the street from the Huntley (actually the Fairmont) on the corner of 2nd and California. We've had some major adventures at both Shutters and The Ivy. Let us know the next time you're in town!

    Thanks for your support of Marg!
