After this trip, one thing is for certain. If I had the money, I'd move to Irvine, Ca.
Don't get me wrong, I love Boulder, but with similar real estate prices, you get more bang for your buck at Irvine. I mean, LOOK AT ALL THE GREAT FOODS! I literally ate myself into oblivion. I gained 5 lbs in 3 days and had some of the best foods I've had in a LONG time.
While the trip was rather rushed, my mom planned it so well that we accomplished a lot.
--Went to Laguna Beach, Newport Beach, Irvine, and LA.
--Went to Universal Studios
--Ate at 7 different restaurants and reduced my craving for Chinese food.
Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure.
We were at some random restaurant because my mom was craving some stir-fried beef noodles... I think I will never be a great blogger because I ALWAYS forget to take pics of the most important thing: FOOD!! We just devour everything the second they were brought out. They were soooooo delicious.
Next up, my mom's friend who's a Californian (is that even a word?) took us on a real estate tour. While he and my mom talked about different investment possibilities, I got dibs on all the fancy houses in Newport Beach.
If I remembered correctly, I was shocked to find out the price of the house I liked in this pic.
I think this was Laguna Beach? Beautiful houses and a great beach.
Universal Studios. I've been to the one in Orlando numerous times, but it's always fun to go to amusement parks. We took the Studio Tour to see the sets/stages where the stars work. It must be fun to act for a great-paying job. I for one think that everyone acts on a daily basis for free. LOL.
Look ma! I'm in Hollywood!
LOL! All in all that was a great trip. We all need to get away from real life once in order to recharge our batteries.
Oh, and I'll be hosting a huge blog sale sometime this week. Please stay tuned! :)
