santa cruz.

labor day in ten:
1. let's go to... santa cruz.
2. our partners in crime: the tibbs, plus baby graham. 
{only the cutest baby ever, and has been from day one}
3. we took a nice long stroll on the boardwalk;
which, consisted of roller coasters, people watching and the
scrumptious scent of cotton candy on a hot summer day. 
4. a tiny, but lovely scenic drive on "west cliff" road.
{do you want a beach house on a cliff as much as i do?}
5. classic stop for ice cream at the town's most popular stop.
6. side trip to capitola;. a darling, quaint little shopping area.
{take me back soon, please!}
7. back in the car for more driving, tired baby cries, and labor day traffic.
8. can't have a holiday without delicious food, right?
our holiday consisted of a gourmet lunch and a 'pit stop' at five guys and fries.  
9. lots of laughter due to talk of nose jobs, comparison in burger joints 
and the argument over the state of always wanting something.
10. all that diet coke didn't affect the exhaustion from the fun day;
back home we went and jumped right into bed.

cheers to awesome friends, holidays that fall on a monday
 and the beach, of course.
how was your holiday? 


  1. goodness california is beautiful! it's not a holiday here, but i had a nice relaxing weekend :)

  2. I love Cali! Hope you have a BLAST!!!

  3. Fun holiday!

    I spent mine in the burbs with my friend and her baby (her hubs had a project that needed overtime). We hung out, played Harry Potter Scene It, watched the last HP, and played with Emma. A good relaxing day!

  4. I went to santa cruz this summer and had a great time. I've been going for years since my dad went to school there but each time is something special. :)

  5. comparison in burger joints is probably my favourite argument to have, ever. so much fun.

  6. Looks like so much fun! I LOVE Santa Cruz!
