Mr. A and I lived in Los Angeles for two years during grad school, but we never got a chance to visit Catalina Island. So when my sister wanted to visit as part of her goodbye to LA, I was super, super excited. So excited that when I came down with a bit of a bug the morning of our little journey, I asked my dad to grab me some cold medicine so I could forge ahead. He got me CVS non-drowsy cold medicine… Non-drowsy MY ASS. After taking the medicine, I got so sleepy that I fell asleep. In. My. Bag.
Apparently, I did get on the boat to Catalina… and slept the entire ride out. Good thing my siblings take such good care of my child because I was about as competent parent as Brooke Mueller.
The boat ride out lasted about an hour. Just enough time for me to sleep off the meds…
… I’m alive!
Catalina was spectacular and totally quirky at the same time.
The “special” buses were truly special. Only thing that was missing were chickens flying around the back.
My brother has a style that screams “Georgetown” and it totally works for him. He picked a linen shirt that coordinated perfectly with his fishing boat pants (pants that got the attention of a hot babe in a bikini). But my FAVE part of his outfit is the belt.

Luckily on this trip, I had not only my daughter snapping away pics…
… but my dad too! (This was them taking pictures of each other. Love it.)
My husband is the absolute worst at taking photos of me for the blog (for some reason, he dislikes the pink camera), so I have Pickle in training.
It was the perfect day and made me miss the California lifestyle and our years there terribly. And being back in Ohio isn’t helping much with that either.
