Friends Seen in April

I know this is a pretty belated post...but nonetheless, I wanted to post about 2 good friends that I got to see in the month of April. The first was my good friend Jenna and her husband Cam...both friends from high school. She and her husband live down near L.A. and asked me to come visit for my bday/Easter weekend! I was thrilled to visit them and have something fun to do for my big bday! We had so much fun...


HUGE margaritas and yummy appetizers at Baja Cantina


Bike ride along Venice Beach

Birthday beers along the Promenade while watching March Madness game

More HUGE margaritas for Jenna & Cam while at the Promenade

Celebrating bday at a bar, after dinner at Wabi Sabi (such good sushi)!

And then Sunday for Easter, we went to a nice dinner at a waterfront restaurant...I had such a nice time and we had great food & drinks around the L.A. area!!
I can't wait to go back and visit them again :)


Then, a few weeks later, my good friend from high school, Katie, came to Monterey to visit me! I was super-excited because other than my sister and Jenna & Cam (who had come to Monterey for Thanksgiving dinner), Katie is the only other visitor I have had!

We had a few days packed full of trips and lots to do


Lunch on the municipal wharf and a walk down the commercial wharf to get Katie a sample of clam chowder...Mmmmm!

Dinner at Peppers in P.G. and some beers at a local British pub



The Stinking Rose for lunch

Yummy treats from Kara's Cupcakes in Ghirardelli Square

And a trolley ride through the city


Whale watching in Monterey Bay...we saw 2 groups of killer whales!

And the Monterey Bay pink FLAMINGOS!! :)

Overall, I had so much fun on BOTH trips...and it was so good to catch up with great friends. The only thing that would have made the month even better is if I had gotten to see our other good friend, Manzo! The 3 of us were inseparable back in the day, cruising around So. Illinois! I wish us girls all lived closer to one another, but at least we still have fun times like these! :)

  1. That all looks like so much fun! I'm so glad you were able to celebrate your b'day with Cam and Jenna. I know how hard it can be sometimes being away from friends and family.
