This last weekend we were able to take a quick getaway to Southern California. I had made it pretty clear that I was in serious need of a vacation. So, Russ got the (not so subtle) hint and surprised me with this trip for my birthday! It was perfect. My sister, her husband and the cutest chubby 9 month old baby also joined us. We had no schedule and literally did whatever we wanted the whole weekend. We stayed in Newport Beach, but visited Laguna Beach, Long Beach, Huntington Beach and Santa Monica. Everything is so beautiful down there! We spent time on the beach, shopping, being tourists and of course eating, eating and more eating. Perfection. And now here is a quick montage of pictures.
