CALIFORNIA 2017 TRIP HIGHLIGHTS

First Highlight of our trip: Jujube #JUJUBEACH

We just got back from jujubes 2nd annual Jujubeach party! to release their latest print and partnership with Tula (baby carriers) and it was AHH-MAZING. The latest print “rosy posy” is the prettiest floral, (more pic to come on that later) Everyone should know that you do NOT ever miss Jujube party, they do it right! From the food down to the swag bags, and custom floral crowns, they don’t miss a detail! My Bro and his wife came down to Laguna from LA to spend the weekend with my family, and we are so glad they did! I am pretty sure one of my kids would have drowned without them there to keep tabs on my daring little girls… They are a tad too brave for this mama.

First pic we took when we walked into Jujube’s party at the private beach in Laguna! my Bro and wife Witney Carson joined us, and thanks to Wit and her celeb status from “ABC’s Dancing with the stars” this was featured in a few tabloids… LOL thanks Wit;) When we walked in we were greeted with food and handmade floral crowns from The Crown Collective and My girls were in heaven. Floral crowns are just an obsession of every girl I think.

Love the blue flower in Brightons crown!

I know, I have a 2000’s swoop bang thing going on but this was the best I could get outta the girls

Handsome hubby enjoyed the food and this pic. (he hates pics, like most husbands) I, like most wives do, forced him to look happy about this one. He is learning:)

Loving my girls new swim from rad swim! I got a matching one, but Its white and I didn’t want sand in mine. Now I wish I would have just worn it!

These were taken as she was seeing her floral crow in the mirror for the first time! Her dimples kill me. Only kid or grandkid yet that got my daddy’s dimples!

And Hal my ginger beauty! I am obsessed with her hair color!

My swim is from Kingdom and State, and its quickly become a favorite this year! so comfy and flattering on every figure!

Yes Ty was with us, but I couldn’t get him outta the ocean for long enough for a pic so this is what we got from him. Men/boys +photos=nonexistent….

these two divas… actually make that 3 divas.

These little surfboards are so fun! you throw them out into the waves and they “surf” back to you! so fun and came in our jujube swag bag!

2. Disneyland

First and foremost, we were so excited to make our own custom Disney shirts with my Cricut explore air 2! I have another post about my Cricut here. I used their Iron on transfer paper and man was it a fun and easy project! I was able to finish all 6 shirts from design to finish in one night! and how cute is the glitter iron on! quit tip: make sure and pre-wash your shirt without fabric softener, I didn’t wash 2 of them and the letters started peeling up a bit, but the other 4 I washed first have been great, rewashed and still look good! Lesson learned to follow the instructions on the package;)

When you have a cricut you are able to use the software to customize the designs you want. This made our shirts super easy to do. Like I mentioned before, I was able to do all the shirts in one night.

 

And we made it!  We had a great time at Disney with the kids and our cute shirts. (Note Landree and Brighty have writing on their arms with my phone number in case they got lost. Luckily they never got lost.)

 

3. Huntington Beach

We also had a fabulous bike ride around Huntington Beach. I have a friend there who let us take her bikes around. The weather was gorgeous!

 

Our whole trip was busy and really fun. Do you have favorite things to do in California or Anaheim? Always looking for great suggestions, so feel free to share any.
