Girl's Weekend Part I

I'm baaaack!
I had such an amazing time, 
I didn't want it to end either!!
My mom and aunt are gone now,
and I am quite sad because I didn't
want our fun to end!

In the course of a weekend we covered
Newport Beach's Fashion Island, 
Balboa Beach, Irvine Spectrum, 
and Old Town Orange.
All of my favorite locations!

We also saw the movie
The Last Song and yes I actually
liked it (second time seeing it
for me and I thought Miley
was delightful surprisingly enough.)
We were definitely shopaholics,
and we ate lots of yummy food
(think Mexican, Italian, Chinese, 
appetizers, and dessert!)
I think I am going to have to exercise
a lot this week, ha ha!

 I missed you all.
I am going to start out by posting
some pictures of our hotel view 
in Newport Beach and
and pics from our outing in Balboa Beach.

I took some vintage, antique, and
Interior Design photos in Orange.
I'll save those for tomorrow.
We weren't expecting an 
ocean view at our hotel,
but this is the view we received.
This was right outside our balcony!
Hello sunset - beautiful Newport!
I will never take the beach for granted again.
 Yep. That's the beach that we
had right outside our balcony.
I felt spoiled and like I was on vacation
even though I was only 10 minutes
away from my apt. Go figure.
True story.
My Mama bought this dress for me
that same day and I decided to wear it 
out to our dinner location that night - 3Thirty3.
It was a steal, only $10 from Forever21!
By the way, this is where BK and I
had our very first date.
BK gave me the idea to take my
mom and aunt here. 
Score - delicious food!
On Saturday morning we headed to 
Balboa Island where we walked down
their main street, shopped, and ate
yummy Italian food.
Have you ever had a chocolate covered
frozen banana? I didn't have one on 
this trip but I have had them
and they are delish!
Here's what I had at the Italian restaurant
in Balboa. My mouth is watering
just looking at this picture, sooo good!
It was chicken with peppers, onions,
and red sauce. Yummy!
Loved this painting that was
inside the restaurant. 
We decided to walk around Balboa
a bit after our lunch to see the water
and burn some calories.  :)
After Balboa we went and got
pedicures and manicures.
I got a french pedicure and here it is!
Sorry about my tiny toe nails, I feel
a bit awkward sharing my feet, ha ha.

Saturday night and Sunday TBC
in a second post...

How are you Ocean Dreamers?
I hope you had a nice weekend too!
I'm tired from driving around,
but other than that feeling quite
blissful. 

XOXO,

  10. Your weekend looks like it was amazing! I'm jealous!

    My weekend was good though, I can't complain. I spent Friday and Saturday night entertaining a couple of my coworkers visiting from the UK, so that was a lot of fun, but exhausting! Saturday I ran errands, helped my parents move furniture and worked on some yard projects with boyfriend. Sunday I just relaxed and it felt so good.

    Can't wait to see the rest of your pictures!

  24. The dress is beautiful and such a great price! It's so good that you ate a lot of food. It's always like that isn't it?! One of the best parts I say.

    They are all such lovely images of the ocean and with your mum. Looks like you had a fabulous time together.

    P.S. I hate showing my feet too...in shoes that's ok but bare foot not so much.

  26. whoa mama, you look super pretty in that dress!!! And 10 bucks??? That's cheap even for Forever21 standards. That yellow looks beautiful on you and you can tell how happy you are to be with your mom, priceless. She's really pretty too. Also, I like that painting you took a picture of in the Italian restaurant. Looks like a great way to spend time with your Mom. Adorable.

  34. Okay, so I cracked up (do people still say that or am I showing my age?) when I started to read your post, because I stopped in today to tell you — I'm baaaack!

    Finally, after the BIG move, things are getting back to normal and I can blog again. I have missed everyone so much.

    I can't tell you how much I love that you spent time at the beach with your mom and aunt. Brought back so many memories for me and I know you will cherish them forever.

    Looks like you had a fabulous time and that dress is adorable! Missed you and your blog, but I am baaaack!
