Vacation Pictures

Come with me on my little trip....We passed up 3 pinkberry shops...then I said we REALLY need to see what all the hoopla is about...OH MY GOODNESS...Wow, YUM...we ended up having it 3 different times....soooo good!
Whats this???? A CHANDELIER hanging the middle of the street. WOW!! This is in Glendale. We went to check out the Shabby Chic store and found this too. So fun!
This is Huntington Beach. We went to the Beaches...3 times, so warm, sunny, clean!
This was at the Mission. Looks like the leaves are painted!
We drove up the hill to get a view at Dana Point
Yummmm A Pomegranate Daiquiri
Ok, an Orange Creame cupcake, to die for!!!
Went by to see how my painting was holding up...still looks fresh, its been 13 years. The building is empty now kinda sad.
We love "I Love Lucy" Stacey was thrilled to see this hotel!!
These cupcakes are from Sprinkles in Beverly Hills...I had strawberry, Stacey had Ginger, how do you like the shoe, pretty neat huh
This sunflower was at the Mission...love that I got the bee
Love the San Juan Capistrano Mission, flowers, Lemons, blue sky, wonderful
This was wonderful. This artist group was painting the arches and the Lady was posing for the whole time...had a very "greek statue" look.
Well, did you enjoy my trip?? I'm glad I could share. One thing I really enjoyed was waking up and turning on the TV to watch a couple of the local guys that have been news people for as long as I can remember.
The winner of my little canvas giveaway is BRANDERELLA

Your vacation looked and sounded wonderful...and full of fun! Why is the building you painted empty now? I remember when you did your first post about that building. I love it's historic look.

I love your pics, it was a trip down memory lane. The beaches are beautiful and San Jaun is still as I remember it. For the chandelier.... it doesnt surprise me that its hanging in the middle of the street, its Glendale! But, it is really cool!!

Stephanie
