Rachel's Wedding

My sister's roommate Rachel got married in California and I tagged along.  It was great to see friends and family and have a mini-vacation.

 We loved seeing Cath and catching up on tv, movies, and her california adventures.  It's a bummer that we don't live closer!

First time at Sprinkles.
Gelato next door--I've never seen so many flavors!

Dying over the cuteness.

I got red velvet and coconut.  I enjoyed them slowly and loved every bit.
 I had lunch at Bruxie with my college roommate, Whitney and had such a great time catching up.  We talked blogs--including her awesome blog, Eat Sleep Cuddle, fashion, and food, and ate amazing waffle sandwiches.  And of course, we did not take any pictures.

 I stayed with my Aunt Valorie and Uncle Brad in Fountain Valley and got to take a ride in my uncle's Studebaker.

                I also got to see my D.C. roommate Meg and finally meet her little guy, Boston.

                                                      This little flirt is the cutest ever.

 Side note: this was the first time I used a rental car and the first time I went through a toll booth.  Turns out I paid the toll incorrectly and my rental car company gave me up to the feds.  I explained what happened and they dropped all of the charges.  Yay!

But seriously, California was awesome and did a pretty good job of making me want to live there.
