What a weekend eh?! Hope yours was a fast-paced and fun as mine. I went home to Southern California to be in a wedding and visit with friends and family. It’s been about 6 months since I last flew home. Three days really isn’t enough time to see everyone and do everything (especially when there’s a wedding involved). I have things that are “must do’s” every time I fly back. Eating at my favorite thai place is high on that “must do” list. That was checked off the list within 3 hours of my landing. The rest of that night was spent in a food coma.
There’s only a 2 hour time difference between Austin and SoCal but those two hours mean that I woke up at 530AM my first day there. Being up that early and with nothing else to do I threw a load of laundry in the wash and watched the free HBO weekend on TV for a while haha. “Must do” number 2: go to H&M. I went a little crazy at H&M b/c they’re having a $15-$20 dress sale. I got FOUR dresses but spent less than $75.
After the early morning shopping, it was wedding time until 10 that night. Somehow I was convinced to go out after the wedding as well- hell, I already knew I’d be tired this week, might as well go big. Saturday my family came to visit. We had a feast! Cheeses, fruit, veggie pigs in a blanket, bananas caramelized with sugar and more. I ate myself silly all day then headed out at night with more friends. We ended up at a brewery in downtown long beach (HOW did I miss pictures of this??) Needless to say, another late night.
Sunday/Father’s day I suggested we eat breakfast by the beach (seeing the beach is another “must do”) followed by a walk along the water to watch that weekend’s surf competition. By noon on Sunday I was getting ready for the airport, sand still on my feet. I wish I had more time at home but it was a fantastic weekend!
