Day Trip

So this is what I did today.

Walked around the cute little town of Santa Barbara.

010I have been itching to get briefly get away from the city. But I didn’t want to take time off work or spend too much money for a hotel stay, so I thought a day trip would be just right.

And it was.

One of the things I really love about living in Southern California is that there are SO many places to explore within driving distance.  There’s Orange County, Catalina, San Diego, Santa Barbra etc.


We got up to SB around 11am this AM. We didn’t really have a plan as to what we going to do up there besides lunch. So we just walked up and down State Street enjoying the sun. (It’s been cloudy in LA the past week, so we have felt a little deprived, LOL)

The little downtown area is too cute. Hubby was shocked at how many pictures I needed to take, but I couldn’t resist 🙂



We stumbled upon a cute little Mexican Cantina place for lunch and ate way too much. (And I still came home with leftovers .  I guess I was too hungry because I forgot to take pictures of my food. Oh well. My stomach enjoyed it.


I did manage to take a pic of my fun Peach Margarita drink. YUM.

Lastly we made a pit stop for some dessert.


So good.

I wasn’t able to run this morning because we wanted to get on the road pretty early, but I did manage to go on a 30 min. jog when we got back. Score.

Now I don’t feel so bad about all the food I ate today. 🙂

Now I’m all ready for my favorite Sunday night show: Girls. I know I talk about this show all the time, but it’s just so fantastic. I can’t stop laughing about Hannah wearing a sleeping bag in last weeks episode. So random. It’s an actual sleeping bag with a hood and arm holes.



Do you have any favorite weekend get-away spots?

My Ballet Workouts will be back later this week!
