Vacay

October 15, 2013

If you follow me on instagram (girlintheredshoes) you probably figured out I've been on vacation in California for the last week! We got home yesterday and are exhausted! I'll do a traveling with a baby post sometime soon...but Hudson did SO great on the plane!

For those of you who do not know, I was born and raised in southern California. In 2005 I moved to Michigan for graduate school and met Jon, who is now my husband! Needless to say I decided to stay in Michigan. I used to travel back to California 3-4 times a year but now that we have Hudson it's a lot harder to get out there. My cousin got married last week in Del Mar, California and it was the perfect excuse to pack our bags and head to the west best coast!

My cousin and I grew up together and are the only two redheads in my family! I'm two years older but he was always super tall so my aunt used to tell people we were twins. (excuse the poor quality phone photo! It was dark at the rehearsal dinner)

 I mean, look at us!!!! My cousin (and entire family) was thrilled that Hudson is a redhead too.

The wedding was at The Grand Del Mar and was absolutely gorgeous!

We had SO much fun and loved getting dressed up! And my dress was totally awesome and new(ish) mama friendly...I highly recommend!

Love.

 Stay tuned for more California adventures!

  7. It must be so nice to make a trip back, and for a whole week too! You looked beautiful at the wedding! Navy is the perfect color in my opinion -- it can be dressed up or down so easily. Looking forward to reading more about your trip!

  16. Oh good Lord.... the Grand Del Mar is one of my favorite places in this entire world! I went there for my 30th birthday last year. Did you happen to see if the horses are back? Gees... I can only imagine how gorgeous the wedding was. And regarding red heads... I have one red headed cousin, and my husband has a redheaded uncle! I would so not be disappointed if we had a redheaded child of our own one day.
