Number 10- LB Museum of Art

There are always so many fun local things to do in the cities we live in that I don't think people take advantage of! I've lived in Long Beach for over 5 years now & this was one of those fun & free local things that I've always wanted to do. I had a day to spend in Long Beach with my mom before we left for a mother daughter Vegas trip so I decided to take her to the LB Museum of Art  . They had this super cute & silly dog exhibit going on. We also discovered the cute little restaurant the museum has. Lunch, good happy hour deals, & a gorgeous view? Yes please! I'll have to go back with my girlfriends.

Number 2 & 6 - Laguna Beach / Go Hiking

I killed two birds with one stone here. My bestie & I went hiking in Laguna Beach at Crystal Cove State Park. We chose the difficult loop trail. It was a great workout & such a beautiful hike! Enjoy the pics :)

Number 3- One Night Trip to Vegas

Oh Vegas. Always a good time! We just missed a pool party we were supposed to go to when we arrived so we ended up lounging at the MGM lazy river pool. For someone who is a non swimmer, it was perfection! Before our night on the strip we decided to get dolled up & do a nice dinner. We chose Wolfgang Pucks restaurant at the MGM. The restaurant has that classy/casual feel so if you're in the mood to get a little dolled up it is totally appropriate and you won't look like an idiot(then again what am I saying, anything goes in Vegas). We shared the BEST pesto/prosciutto pizza at dinner. I've seriously become obsessed with pesto pizza since that night. After dinner we went back to our hotel to change & hit up two clubs. We couldn't leave Vegas without eating at one of the buffets so the next day we had lunch at the Buffet at the Wynn. So yummy! And then it was time to hit the road & head back to reality. It was the perfect girls trip...until next time Vegas.





Do you have any fun Vegas stories?!

Number 8- Go to a concert

The first thing I crossed off my summer bucket list this past summer was "go to a concert". My friend was interning for vans & just so happened to have an extra ticket for Warped Tour. I had absolutely nooo idea what it was so I text her asking about it. Turns out it's a concert hosted by Vans featuring a ton of pop/punk bands on a number of different stages. Still not really knowing what to expect, I asked my friend if a sundress was okay to wear. Her response was NO. Luckily I took her advice and went with shorts, white toms, & a white tank and somewhat managed to blend in with punk music loving high school kids. Was it really my cup of tea? No. But my friend and I made the best of two free tickets by enjoying a hot summer day with a couple of beers, overpriced concert food & music we don't normally listen to. And best of all I got to cross something off my summer bucket list :)

Do you have any fun concert stories?!
