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!
Pam I love your boldness! and the presentation of food was great!
Santa Barbara folks your hospitality rocks!
Poli and Valerie we missed you both!

"It was a great trip"
