Good morning from the bright, sunny, 90 degrees state of California! I gotta say, every single part of me is questioning why I subject myself to the negative temps, snow-filled yards and icy roads every winter. I feel like there is no sense of reality around these parts because hello, it’s February and it’s 90. They have things like sunsets over the ocean, ice cream shops on every corner and cute little kids who run around in swimsuits like it’s the only thing they have to do.
We’re currently staying at the Lakehouse Hotel and Resort which is one of our favorite spots in Southern California. From here we are headed to Tower23 in San Diego and I can’t wait to experience the ocean from our balcony. For now we’ve been busy sleeping poolside and eating an abundance of chips and salsa because what else are you supposed to do on vaca?
Also, can we just talk about the bachelor for a second? Last night was the episode that I was at during the filming of it all [remember the bar scene with Lauren B that lasted a whole one second? I was there creeping around in the background].
The big takeaway from that experience? Ben is amazing, his friends are so real and sweet, and Lauren looks incredibly young in person. Aside from Ben not giving me a rose that evening [I couldn’t believe it either], it was fun to be a part of the experience – side note: my friends and I sat in that bar for over 7 hours people, 7. They played ONE FREAKING SECOND of that scene. Anyhow, now I’m curious to know who you are rooting for. My top three are Lauren, JoJo [love her], and Amanda. If you know who wins, keep your mouth shut or I will throw a sledge hammer at my computer. Thank you.
Okay, that’s all of the important stuff for now. Back to the pool to sweat my head off and develop really awesome tan lines. For more vacation fun, make sure you are following along on Snapchat [it’s true, I have an account now. I think my username is erinschrader but I’m not even sure because that’s how good I am at it], Instagram, or Facebook. See you all there!
