Can a NYC Girl become a SoCal Girl?

Oh YES INDEED!

Vacation was all I really wanted and I totally had to get away.  (Belinda and the girls were so right.)  California is a spectacular place, it completely exceeded my expectations and I'll spill some stories and photos shortly.  We only took around 500-600 photos/video clips, you know...

Our road trip was awesome.  The GPS saved our lives over and over.

What the heck was with that Tanning Mom?  (I was on vaca, I watched the news everyday). 

Sulky, unfortunately I did not see Tom Cruise at Paramount Studios but they had some funny stories about him.  I will post a photo of the "Tom and Nicole doors" in my next post.  :)

There have only been two places which have made me shed some tears when we had to leave....NYC back in Spring 2010, and Coronado, CA yesterday morning.  I'd love to live there.

How are all of you?  Do you love palm trees and Birds of Paradise as much as I do?

  3. Hello:
    Welcome back, we have missed you!

    Can we chip in too? We have never been to California. Well, truth be told, we have never been to America. Well, if the absolute truth be told, we cannot think of being in a plane for more than two hours. But,we really, really want to see the USA!!!!

    We look forward to seeing and reading more...

  4. Welcome back and so glad you had such a great time.
    Now you were a California Girl for a little while as in the Beach Boys song!
    Several of my readers are Californians and they would not leave for anything!
    Can't wait to hear all about the trip.

  5. Looking forward to seeing all those snapshots...
    California has so much to offer the tourist.

    I think a road trip with the gals sounds like a great way to travel...especially when one has a gps!

    1. It was a fantastic road trip, so scenic everywhere and a GPS is mandatory! Ours was great.

  6. Welcome home! Ah yes, Coronado is so beautiful. Did you enjoy the drive over the tall bridge from San Diego? I love the view from up there. You mentioned that you were going to Hotel del Coronado so I hope you will put up some pics. I have very fond memories and would love to live vicariously through you.

    1. I did! Unfortunately I didn't really get any good photos of the bridge (or it would be far far in the background), but I did get some video clips while driving on the bridge. Such great views!

  9. Welcome back and I look forward to viewing your holiday snaps LR.
    It's been awhile since I hit California (14 hour flight) but I live amongst palm trees so that will have to suffice.
