Miss C and I are headed over to Santana Row for the Madewell opening with our sweet mama. Who’s coming?

I Want To Go To There

Is there anywhere better than California?  I’ve literally never lived outside of Santa Cruz in my entire life, so I wouldn’t know if there was.

Someone recently asked me where I would live if I could live anywhere in the world, and I  had a hard time coming up with anywhere that would be better than  Santa Cruz. The weather is mild in pretty much every season (It doesn’t get much colder than 50 degrees on a winter day, and doesn’t get much warmer than 80 degrees on a summer day). It’s close to the city (San Francisco), right on the beach (our house is about 4 blocks to the beach), and has lots of great restaurants and fun things to do, while still maintaining some of that small town feel.

Last week, during a warm spell that brought our March days up to 80 degrees, husby and I enjoyed an evening stroll by the beach, and I’m pretty sure it confirmed that this is the greatest place on earth.

If you could live anywhere, where would you live?

Just Like A Circus

I picked up these crazy pants a couple months ago during a thrift store parade that Miss C and I went on from Santa Cruz to San Jose and back. They are such a bold print that it took me a while to work myself up to wearing them. I believe what I said to husband before I left for the day was:

“So…Do I look like a normal person, or a person that probably works at the circus?”

Whether the answer is the former or the latter, I decided I love them either way, and they shall henceforth be known as my “Party pants.” So I if you invite me to a party, be prepared, cause I’m gonna show up wearing these babies.
