BlackOut

We are back from our California Holiday.... I'm very sad (it was soooo fun!) and brought back a cold (too much fun! Fun-over I'd say!). But what can you do?! Look at pictures that's what!!! We took nothing short of somewhere around 600! :) We had tons of fun! So I'll share a few here and there!

Here are a few from our first day in SD! After we arrived, and promptly ate at In N'Out (sad we din't have more meals to consume, because I could have used 3 more burgers or shakes from here!) then went and walked around gorgeous La Jolla. After some great sightseeing we headed to our hotel, to get ready for dinner and drinks!

Shortly after check in, the power went out. There was a massive power outage in southern California - it hit from Mexico north to Orange County and east all the way to Arizona. It went out and didn't come back on til 2am. 12 hours with only wine in the lobby, and then a midnight raid of the minibar - after starvation pangs hit our bodies! It definitely wasn't the way we planned on spending our first night on vacation. Thankfully we had the company of one of my great friends, Justin, and roughly a bottle of wine each....lets just say it got silly fast, then walking the pitch black downtown streets in search of food - unsuccessful! Thankfully it came back on!

Here are a few shots pre-power outage on our room balcony.
Sunglasses: Karen Walker. Top: Anthropologie. Necklace: F21. Jeans: Joes Jeans. Watch: Michael Kors.

Did everyone hear about the blackout? I would have given anything for a PB&J or steak at about 7pm that night! (We were starving!!!)

  4. Welcome back! Can't believe you were there for the blackout. That was FNO last Thursday, right? I hear it got cancelled. We had a huge blackout here in NYC years ago and it was such a crazy experience. Sounds like you made the most of it :) xoxo

  8. Love that top on you! What a bummer about the power (mental note: I should always have an emergency snack like I used to have for the husband)

    Are you making more two toned zebra clutches? I love, love them!

  10. What a great outfit!!

    I was affected by the power outage, but thankfully it only lasted for a little over two hours. (I live in El Centro, so we started freaking out because it's ridiculously hot.) My fiance lives in San Diego though and he got it back at 11pm. I heard some places in El Centro never even lost their power. It's so weird.
