{California}

 I am finally getting around to posting a few pics from our vacation to California in July.  It was an all-around perfect vacation!  The weather was gorgeous with temperatures in the 60's and 70's which was a welcome change for us.  This was Lil P's first trip to California so of course we spent some time in Hollywood and Beverly Hills just having fun and taking in the sights!


Me, Lil P's cousin, and Lil P all wearing our movie star shades!

We had to do a little shopping here!

We found our favorite old movie stars' hand and foot prints on Hollywood Boulevard.  They were so much more interesting to look at than the stars on the walk of fame.



Here I am posing with Johnny Depp at Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum.  The figures are incredibly realistic all the way down to exact height and even razor stubble on his chin here.  I have to say that the most stunning figure was Angelina Jolie.  I didn't take a photo of her wax figure because I still don't like her--haha!


We took one of those tours of Hollywood which included stopping and ogling lots of Celebrity homes...hee hee.  It was actually lots of fun!  I think this was Madonna's house:

I had to stop at the original Shabby Chic in Santa Monica.


We had an outdoor wedding to attend in Malibu which was quite lovely and scenic.

Yay, you went to my native state. My grandparents had a beach house in Malibu. I remember going surfing with my BFF. Those were great summer memories for me. I do miss California weather (especially during the month of August in Houston). Enjoyed the pictures. You look so pretty in them.

Hugs,
Gigi

I am not that much of an LA guy but Beverly Hills I LIKE. A lot.

I spent a great week there one time at the Beverly Hilton and I found one of my favorite restaurants ever, La Dolce Vita.

What fantastic photos! Thanks.

I did some serious damage at Rachel Ashwell's store. That's where I got the pillows that are currently on my sofa (gray & white damask). Glad you had fun!
