Road Trip to Santa Barbara

I recently went on a road trip to Santa Barbara with my girls to celebrate a special lady's birthday....

She has a deck of about 100 sq ft and it is filled with a beautiful collection of Cactus & Succulents!

This gal's collection inspired me to expand my own collection!

I fell in love with this rustic stool...

Apparently it has some history to it.

Cruzing through downtown we stopped under a huge tent filled with Indian goods...

I've always wanted to purchase a few pairs of these fabulous slippers and have guests slip them on when visiting. Wouldn't that be awesome?

On our last day, we had an opportunity to visit the Santa Barbara Botanical Garden...

There's something about acorns....

We were also able to visit Lotusland Ahhh! What a dreamy place to visit. Although I forgot my camera (a blogger's heartbreak), I'm hoping to receive pictures from my girls soon to show you. If you ever find yourself in SB...please go to Lotusland!

Shout Outs: Margarita & Dave You guys are the ultimate Hosts!
Jen thanks for finding a great place to bunk at!
Lorena Wow, it would of been hard for me to stay awake in the front seat! You're awesome!

Santa Barbara folks your hospitality rocks!

"It was a great trip"

Polaroid Tuesday :: Week 2

"A wonderful bird is the pelican
His bill can hold more than his belican.
He can take in his beak
Food enough for a week;
But I'm damned if I see how the helican."

Polaroid Tuesday :: Week 1

I'm jumping on the bandwagon and following the footsteps of Cakies blog. I am making an attempt to share a polaroid every Tuesday.

This is my friend D (thanks for your permission D) in Kauai last October. Doesn't that mustache just go with her shirt? Love it!
