Back From Santa Monica!

Santa Monica Trip 2015

Whew!

Back home from a trip to Santa Monica, California to shoot a YouTube episode with Pure Leaf Ice Tea and Tastemade.

Aside from being really excited to see a real set and work with a crew for a recipe video, I was also happy to visit California again.  As you may know, I grew up in Southern California.

This was my first visit to California where I actually felt like an Austinite, not a Californian.

It was kind of odd.

I made sure to get as much Mexican, deli, and Chinese food as possible. While Austin has some great food to offer, there’s nothing like what you’re raised on.

Because Hunter is so little and still really needs me around at nighttime, we made the decision to drive with the family, as opposed to having me fly out by myself. We added a little time to the trip and visited San Diego for a bit before driving up to Santa Monica.

Still working on whether that was the best choice, but we all did have lots of fun. The kids got lots of beach time and they absolutely love staying in hotels. Having a kid in kindergarten makes life a little more tricky, though.  But, looking through the photos, I’m so glad the family came with me.  🙂

While we had a great time, met lots of cool people, ate tons of tasty food, and enjoyed the beautiful scenery and weather, I do have to say I am happy to be home.

I’m really excited to see how it turns out 🙂

    Best part of your photos was seeing beautiful weather! It is so wet & dreary in Houston.
