I feel like we have been on vacation for months! Whenever we leave for long periods of time like that I always feel like it takes a while to get back into the groove of the real world. For instance, my “to do” list for today consists of grocery shopping, 100 loads of laundry, paying bills, work stuff (ie payroll, quickbooks, etc…), purchase flights for Thanksgiving… ugh! And I’m exhausted! I know you guys know what I’m talking about… sometimes you need a vacation from your vacation.
Anyway, it really was a great little break from life in Florida. First we were in California for a couple of days for my bestie’s wedding. Then the last few days we have been visiting my family in Texas. Husband & I had never been to Los Angeles together before, so it was really nice to be with him to show him around where I lived during college at Pepperdine. Oh, and my parents were there too!
It was the most gorgeous day to be in Malibu. I took him on a little tour of the campus, I showed him my old apartment, I introduced him to Westward Beach where I spent lots of time sunbathing with my friends, and of course I took him to my favorite sushi restaurant Nobu which has completely changed since I was in school. Still delicious, I think it has changed Husband’s life. ;)
After lunch we decided to head back to the hotel since my parents had a flight to catch that evening…
Shutters on the Beach is by far the best hotel in Los Angeles. Not only is it perfectly located in Santa Monica, (close to all major freeways, the airport, shopping, and fabulous restaurants) it also has the best view! Love, love, love, and highly recommend staying here every time you are in the Los Angeles area. Oh, and what an amazing sunset we had that night! (see pics below)
More fun pics to come! Stay tuned… I’m just gettin’ started…
