Weekend Recap

This weekend we went to Santa Barbara for my future brother-in-law's graduation from UCSB.
But first, we made a quick stop in Santa Monica.
We stayed at this beautiful hotel
And got to meet this precious little one. My new cousin! She is the most smiley little thing. Such a happy tiny.


Then off to Santa Barbara...

Where we did a little wine tasting in Santa Ynez. Highly recommend it!

Saw these gorgeous mysterious flowers everywhere. I love. What are they?? You can't really tell from this picture, but they're HUGE.

So here's the thing, I don't like cats. Always been more of a dog person. Then I met this little one, (the stray outside of the house we rented in SB) and I fell in love. He was such a precious little lover. I threatened to take him home with me all weekend. But sadly, the severely allergic fiance won the battle and the kitty stayed in SB.

And if you haven't entered my Stella + Dot earring giveaway you can do it here! Hope you had a great weekend!!
