This weekend I had the pleasure of traveling to Sacramento, California with my best friend. Lexi (aka alexis, lu, lex, my boo) and I have been friends since high school and I'm not sure who I would be if I had never met her. If there is such a thing as a soul mate best friend, this girl is mine. I love her to death. I know that I can always count on her for a shoulder to cry on (and I mean literally) a friend to giggle with, a person who will always give me honest advice and her best opinion, someone who truly appreciates playing "what if & would you rather" scenarios, and someone who will always take my weirdness to the next level. I have shared so many amazing memories with this lovely lady some of which have resulted in belly laughs so hard that i've started crying. It's kind of nice to have someone that just gets you without having to explain anything at all. Throughout the years her family has become my family (and vice versa) I wouldn't have it any other way.
So, this weekend Lex, Ames (lex's mom her real name is Amy) and I went to visit Brandon (lexi's brother) in Sacramento. We decided to take a trip to Pebble Beach and Monterey, CA where Brandon surprised us with tickets to see the AT&T PROAM golf tournament. Although lex and I work an annual golf outing every year and play a little we like to consider ourselves "golfers", but this was unlike anything I had ever been to. We were able to see Phil Mickelson, Wayne Gretzky and many others golf and were even lucky enough to sit close to John Daily while we ate pizza for dinner! (Although we didn't talk to him or get any pictures... except a creepy one). After a full day of watching golf Brandon took us to Carmel Beach in Carmel, California. A little town by Monterey. It was so, so beautiful!
It was a great trip with lots of good eats, bonding and most importantly laughs! Here are some pictures of our trip. O! And by the way, California had been going through a terrible drought, so while we were there it decided to rain most of the time! At least when the sun shined it was gorgeous and we even had a nice enough day to learn how to longboard ;)
First stop: In- N- Out. Our first experience and it was delicious!!
Later that night we went to Old Town Monterey. It was so cute and the sights were beautiful, it was located right on the Pacific Ocean. We also helped a lost little boy find his dad!
The next morning we woke up bright and early to get on the bus to Pebble Beach!
The golf course was beautiful! This picture doesn't do it much justice. (We were't allowed to take pictures during the tournament so in order to capture some pictures we had to be incognito... although Lex got a little carried away and had some fingers pointed at her haha)
After the golf tournament Brandon took us to the beach. This was in a little town called Carmel, CA. It was a little chilly, but the sights were gorgeous.
A few years ago Lex and I were in San Francisco, CA. And wrote "livin' the dream" in the sand, so while we were on the beach in Carmel we decided to recreate our picture, but and "still" of course because we are so blessed with the life we live and the adventures we get to go on!
The beach was so beautiful, I wish we could've gone for a swim! There were also a few random caves along the shore.
