why couldn't we have moved to cali?! ....

Two weekends ago we spent a quick weekend in Southern California to attend Eddies' Cousin's wedding. We headed to Seatac after work on Friday set for our 2.5 hour (nothing compared to our usual 6-7 hour flights back East!) flight to LAX.
This was my 2nd time in California. The first time I stayed in San Francisco, which I LOVE and can't wait to venture back there!  This time though, I must say I fell in love with Southern California! I think I would be a 100x happier person if I lived in that sunshine all year round (may be a bit of an exageration but whateves!)!

We got to Camarillo late Friday night and pretty much called it a night. Saturday morning we were up and at em ready for high 70 degree temps! HEAVEN!

We headed straight to Santa Monica Pier with Eddie's family. 

Eddie's mom & I basking in the sun!

We only had a few hours to explore before the rehearsal dinner but we managed to make a stop on the way home in Malibu to join up with some more of Eddie's family!

Particularly new addition Patrick. He is the cutest stinking baby ever. 

Moving on to the rehearsal dinner! It was held at a delish Italian restaurant which I was more than pumped about, Italian happens to be my favorite food everrr. 

It was so nice to spend time with Eddie's family. He comes from a VERY large one. His dad is one of 13 (my dad is also one of 11, YIKES!) 

.. some of my new future cousin-in-laws! :)

I may or may not have had a LITTLE too much wine too drink and spent the majority of Sunday morning laying by the pool recovering.. Hey thats what you get for feeding me endless amounts of wine!

The wedding was held on Sunday the views were gorg everywhere you looked! 

As you can see by the golf bags, the venue was a golf course! 
My second family & I :)

Oh wait you want a close up of the fia and me?! 

The night ended with some drinks by the hotel fire pit. I was a GENIUS and booked our flight for 6:00am on Monday morning so I could go into work. - DEDICATION to Pacific Advisors right there! 
Well that GENIUS idea pretty much left us to get NO sleep on Sunday since we had to leave around 3:30 am to head to  the airport! FAIL. 
At least we enjoyed our quick trip to the FULLEST. 

I'll be California dreamin' until the next time!
