Kidless in California

We're on day 5 of our trip away from the kidletts. I've never been away from them for this long so I'm definitely having my moments but after my summer (mostly alone) with them I figure I've earned my stripes ;) My husband Paul and I have spent 3 days in the Century City/Beverly Hills area and are now currently in the gorgeous beach town of Laguna. It just doesn't get any better then this. I forgot what it was like to be able to sleep on a beach or shop without my little munchkins having to go to the bathroom....or be hungry....or get crashed on by a gigantic wave. Turns out I kind of like some "me time". Who knew?!

1. Just a couple of wannabe's at the Ivy. Saw Mark Ballas... meh
2. Breakfast at the Farmhouse in Brentwood farm market. THE BEST FRENCH TOAST EVER. For realz.
3. Shopping (as in window shopping) at Rodeo drive.
4. Date night at the Beverly Hills hotel. Yummy dessert. Saw George Lopez, not to be confused with Jennifer Lopez
5. My first time at Venice Beach. Lots of crazy's, tattoos, and skaters.
6. A crazy day at Santa Monica. People escaping the heat. Saw David Spade.
7. Exploring Laguna Beach. Saw Nick Nolte.
8. A Beautiful Laguna Beach sunset.

Oh, I am so glad I came by to check out your recent posts…I was getting confused seeing your Instagrams in Cali…Now I get it. :)
Looks like an amazing time…and YES, Well-deserved! And as much as you've missed the little ones, you'll be that much better of a momma when you are back with them.
I went to college in Malibu (Pepperdine,) so I was well-acquainted with that area…and I do miss it sometimes. I'd love a getaway there with my man. (Though he'd likely just be out looking for waves. ;))
Aloha to you,

Ok Seriously! I have lived here for 3 years and have yet to see a famous person! (unless you call a daughter of one of the housewives

Glad you are having a nice little get away. Looks like you are having an amazing time. :)

You look fabulous! What's not to love about a little 'me' time, right? And yet when you feel those little arms hugging you tight, you'll be so glad to be home! Enjoy, ENJOY!!!
