CALIFORNIA: where i stayed

listen to this song while reading. you won't be dissapointed. its one of my favorite california songs.
california by joni mitchell

i am going to divide up my california pics because well...i was there a month.
i will just start off with where i stayed majority of my trip. 
at danielle's house( newport beach). jacob calls her danielle 6 names.
danielle and i have known each other for like 6+ years now, we were even room mates when she lived in houston. not a good idea to live with your friends. after she moved out we ended up not talking for months until she needed me to "FIX" her hair. she called me crying/freakin because she tried going somewhere else and we know how that story goes...i fixed her hair and we were sista's again! i'm glad i have some kind of skill, or else who knows if she would of called me. ha ha. jk

isn't this cutest little california home? you can't see it from the road bc it's hidden.
this little dude woke me up every morning by tapping on the window, but thats ok bc i feel like he woke me up to watch 2 episodes of saved by the bell and 2 episodes of fresh prince. those shows never get old!
the top 2 shelves are all of dani's amazing shoes. she was kind enough to let me hang all my clothes on the shelf so i wouldn't have to dig through my luggage everyday:)
i din't even wear everything i brought because i kept shopping at pretty in pink boutique!
i had to buy another bag just to bring home my new clothes:) 
no matter how organized i try to be on vacation there is always a pile of my junk laying around like so...
poor danielle, now she knows what jacob goes through on a day to day basis. i'm kind of messy.
i had a suitcase just for my shoes, it's so hard packing because i never know what i will want to wear:(
do y'all have that problem?  i ended up wanting some of the shoes i had at home:( too bad how sad.
i also had random train cases filled with my hair products sprawled out everywhere. again, im sorry dani!
this is her super cool jewelry station, don't you just love that photo of her grandparents? dreamy.
this is me inside her california cabin. i love the diagonal ceilings and all the natural light coming in.
this is me looking super fly in my new heart shades, right outside of dani's room. just open the sliding glass door and you have this cute lil sunshiney walkway:) oh and i was kidding about me looking super fly:)
these are all over danielles walkway, you cant see in them in the "super fly photo" bc they are all above me. isn't that gorgeous? these are my favorite. how can you not wake up in a good mood when you walk out and see this? 
***this flower wil probably be my next tattoo.

i'm glad we had this time together just us girls, thank you so much for everything! i had a blast!

Do you like staying with your friends or are you a hotel person when on vacation?

to be continued....

i loved seeing all of your pictures with danielle! she was really sweet, and i think that picture of her grandma looks kind of like her.

i DEFINITELY prefer staying with friends on vacation instead of in a hotel. i think it makes it easier to do stuff, plus friends are fun, and if you go to where they live for vacation, it must mean that you don't get to see them often, so it's a good time to catch up!

chola's rock! ;-)
the girls were super impressed with danielle's tattoos... you'll have to be sure to tell her!
okay, i love the sandals in the photo where the shoes are on the floor... the brown sandals in front of the checkered vans.. are they yours? i LOVE them!
and speaking of sandals, i think you took my brown flip flops home with you... cuz they are MIA here. but that's okay, just something to remember us by! ;-)
we miss your face
love ya lots sweet tits!

I just found this post from your 2010 rundown... I'm coming to the States from the UK soon, for 6 weeks, and no idea where to start with my packing!! I take an entire suitcase for a weekend, let alone over a month. Eek! A post on what to pack for long trips would be AMAZING!! Love the blog, keep up the great work. Happy New Year! xx
