Spring Breaks: Part II - Sun, Stars, and Jesse McCartney

Ah, sunny California. First stop: Venice Beach. Kylie and I couldn't believe our eyes. It was the most exhilarating sight we'd seen in about 8 months. We played in the water and collected seashells. Everything was so picturesque. As we walked along venice's boardwalk, we saw everything from denim printed leggings and spray paint art.

The next day, we visited the ever so famous Rodeo Drive. It was a quiet Sunday afternoon spent admiring beautiful clothing in shops that we probably couldn't even afford to step into. It was fun to dream of a lifestyle that would allow us such beautiful possessions.

Monday we went to Huntington Beach and met up with my friend Kacey. We had so much fun playing at the beach and shopping. It was a perfect day in the most perfect place I've ever been.

That night we went to Santa Monica Pier to ride the ferris wheel, but unfortunately children were having a private party (privileged much?) so we couldn't ride. It was gorgeous, however, as all the rides whizzed around, lighting up the night sky.
Afterwards, we headed up to Hollywood and discovered the best treat in the world: Yogurtland. Self serve frozen yogurt with amazing toppings. As we ate our tasty treat, we strolled down the Hollywood walk of fame searching for our favorite stars and gasping with delight every time we saw one we loved.

The next day, Kylie and I spent the day shopping at the promenade in Santa Monica. That night we went to the House of Blues and watched the man of my dreams, Jesse McCartney, perform live. It was the perfect night.

On our last day in sunny California, we went back to Santa Monica pier and rode the ferris wheel. The whole thing feels like a dream now, it was so gorgeous and fun. We barely had anytime to breathe between all of our outings.
