Orange County

The blog world is so fascinating to me.  
When I try to explain it to friends and family they kind of look at me funny and are amazing that I have actually made friends this way.  

This past weekend one of my blog friends turned real life friend, Julie, went out of town.  Her and her husband live in the OC in a house with an amazing backyard. They are parents to a boxer, Maisy and 2 cats, Pepper and Diego.  We had such a fun weekend pretending we owned a house, having our own pets, checking out the OC and dreaming about living here one day, Balboa to be exact!

We spent Saturday morning at the Spectrum dining on Red Robin and people watching.

Walking around Balboa Island and came across this guy.  We were convinced the owner worked on Jurassic Park.

Each house was more amazing than the next.  Towards the end of our walk we found our dream home.  Yes, it is massive, but worth every dime.

Sunday we played Putt-Putt at Boomers.
M Tebowing after his hole-in-one!

We had such a fun time playing.  We figured out the last time we played was 8 years ago!

M ended up winning, but I did get back to back hole-in-ones!

Doug and Julie thank you so much for opening your home to us.  We had so much fun being mommy and daddy to the kids.  M and Maisy bonded big time!
