Can you come see me?

I'm going on a VACATION to So Cal {Southern California....ok, I probably didn't have to explain that}! What better way to spend my vacation than having a meet-up with all of you?!?!?!  I really wish Natalie could come too, but she's kinda having a baby. Soon. I promise we'll take lots of pictures to show you, Natalie!  We'll be meeting in Irvine. Ya'll, I  have no idea where anything is in California. I haven't been there since high school and I took a school bus there. :)

My husband is coming with me and I are taking this vacation together. It was a mutual decision. :).He's not really invited to the meet-up though. He needs something to do during that time. Any ideas?  Could our husbands congregate to some sporting event during that time?  Nah...I'll just leave him at the hotel. I told him I'd only be gone a couple of hours. HA!  He just rolled his eyes nodded his head in agreement.

At the Utah blogger/teacher meet-up that we had last November, I about lost my voice from talking SO much. I can't wait for that to happen again!  

You can email Hadar at  or you can shoot me an email at  for more info!
P.S. I love Hadar. Not in a creepy-stalking-I'm a werido- kind of way. But, she's just so sweet and fabulous and I love her blog. Just sayin'.

PLEASE COME! It'll be so fun. Like Hunger Games at midnight kinda fun.

Riddle me this:
1. Can you come {don't make me beg}?
2. Should I take my hubby to Disneyland {he's never been}
3. What is a must-see in So. California?

I am REALLY hoping I can go, Rachelle!! I'm am just dying to meet you:) This meet-up will be SO much fun!!!

Erin said...

You're coming to So. Cal. -Fun!! I might be able to come and meet you! I live about 35 minutes from there. You will LOVE the Irvine area! It's beautiful! Let's see, you should go to Laguna Beach which is about 15 minutes south of there. It's the prettiest beach around. Balboa Island is fun. (About 10 min. from Irvine). Fashion Island is a great place to shop. Go to Disneyland, it's a must see if you're in So. Cal. and be sure to visit the California Adventure side. It's totally different than Disneyland but lots of fun, too-especially Soaring Over California! Enjoy your trip!

OMG!!! I want to meet you!!! I have to go to a wedding that day! I am sSOOOOOO BUMMED!!!! There are so many great things to do in So Cal. How long are you staying? Is this the Cheesecake Factory at the Spectrum? Send your hubs to the Yardhouse restautant-- he can drink beer, eat appetizers, and watch sports channels all afternoon. Or if he likes golfing, there are a lot of places for him to go golfing. Disneyland might be crowded-- if your hubs doesn't like crowded places, then that might not be the best place to take him. :/ If you guys are foodies, there are SOOOOOO many good restaurants. You guys should also try out some of those food trucks. I think they gather during the weeks somewhere in Irvine too. :) So excited for you but so sad I can't see you and all the other bloggers!! Have FUN!

I'm sure it'll be be a BLAST! Make sure to take tons of photos :)

You should definitely take your husband to Disneyland!

Wish I could go, but that's about the farthest away from me you can get (I'm in Georgia)! Have fun!


Mrs. Wheeler said...

Wish I could come! My in-laws live in Orange County. We go every year! We just went in December, though. You MUST take him to Disney. You also should go to Hollywood and take a tour and/or go to Jimmy Kimmel. You should go to Pink berry for yogurt. Three of my favorite things to do while out there! Have a great time! It's a beautiful place. If you have questions about any other sight-seeing activities, you can email me! I've been there 9 times.

Ack! My visit to Cali is going to be the next weekend! I can't believe I'm going to miss the get together :(
I live in OK, but my sister-in-law is getting married in Santa Ana so we are driving to Cali for a week long vacation. We are doing Disney and Knott's Berry Farm for sure - my husband is from Long Beach and he always says we can't visit California without getting a funnel cake from Knott's lol! Is your hubby the type who would like the Long Beach Aquarium? It is really neat too.

I hope you have fun, and if by some chance your dates change I will be in California from the 15th - 21st and I would love to meet up!

You've got to be kidding me. I will be in Anaheim the.weekend.before :( Total bummer!!! Wish I could meet all of you!!!


Rachel said...

Sounds like a lot of fun. Sadly, I won't be visiting CA until this summer. I did my student teaching there and really any place you go will be a lot of fun. I especially love Balboa Island (extra fun if you're an Arrested Development fan) and I would totally go to Disneyland AND California Adventures. Who doesn't love Disneyland? Have a great trip!

I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!!
My hubs and I love to go to Disneyland for the food. If you like amusement parks, you'd have fun.
You got lots of great suggestions. If you're into the Hollywood thing, you should call about getting tickets to see a show. I have been in the audience for Cheers, Friends, Jay Leno, and did a laugh soundtrack for Naked Gun 2 1/2. :) NBC Studios has a tour, too. Right now, I'm waiting to see if I have tickets to Ellen at the end of April!!!
Mostly, I think the bloggers will make your trip the best ever. :)

Looking forward to it!
Can't come to Cali without heading to the beach...Laguna, Newport or Huntington.
Yes, you HAVE to take your hubby to Disneyland!

You've got some GREAT recommendations! Laguna or Balboa for sure, Disneyland/California Adventure is always worth it even though it will be crowded since that's spring break for lots of us out here. Hollyweird is always fun to do once. :) We'll also have some exciting Laker games that week for the hubby! Hope I can make it to meet you guys. Have a great vacay!

If you want some fun at a restaurant I recommend Ed Debevics. It is SO FUN. If it is still there, it is a 50's type of diner, but the servers dance and sing and act crazy for no apparent reason. They are budding actors so they love to mess around and act and have fun. We went all the time when I was in college. Loved it!

I am jealous of your meet-up. I plan to go to So Cal hopefully this Summer if Dave Ramsey lets me!!!

Have a great time!!!

Oh yes! Balboa, Disneyland, and Ed Debevics! Also AZ is only an 8 hour drive. =P My kids also love Sea World but it would be quite a drive.

Oh I wish! I miss Cali so much! I now live in Utah like you. I won't be there until this summer. I know the best beach -- Treasure Island in Laguna! You feel like you're in Hawaii. Also the farmer's market in LA is amazing! Bring lots of money because there is tons of shopping to do -- South Coast Plaza (Costa Mesa), The Grove (LA). Have fun, let me know when you have a get together in UT.

So totally jeal of this meet up!!

Debbie said...

Yes! Take your husband to Disneyland! Make sure you get plenty of "beach" time in! Have a great time! I'm 2 hours north of Irvine, but I have a family birthday party in San Diego that day. Thanks for sharing great info. and ideas on your blog! Love it!

lala said...

I wish I can go with you,make sure to take tons of photos back.

Rose said...

I hope that can with you .It lucky for me

Ms. Apples said...

Just emailed Hadar and I hope the timing works out. I would love to get to meet you all!

There's tons to do and lots of what has been said is definitely worth it--the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm (or Six Flags Magic Mountain, if you make it north of LA), for shopping/strolling you could go to Old Town Pasadena or 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica, and of course there are tons of pretty's not warm enough for swimming but ones with good piers/boardwalks include Balboa Island, Huntington Beach, Santa Monica, and Venice. And of course you can always be a super tourist and drive down Rodeo Drive and around the Beverly Hills neighborhoods or Hollywood. You can also wander around Hollywood, though it's really quite smile, or hike up to the Hollywood sign.

I just saw this post because I am so self absorbed and busy! What to do in our part of the world...the beaches are gorgeous so that is a must, LA has great museums so that might be fun,South Coast Plaza is a gorgeous mall,the best suggestions have been made but there are great restaurants too! Try to eat by the beach. Take lots of pictures. Just getting away is fun... right?
I cannot wait to hug you!
