A Day at the Beach

Yesterday I didn't have to work so I grabbed my pup and headed to the Huntington Beach Dog Beach. I was born in Orange County and went to college there so anytime I go back I fall in love with the coastal communities and beautiful beaches. As a kid, my summers were spent in both Huntington and Laguna Beaches. One day I'd love to end up back there, in an amazing home right on the sand. Gotta dream big right?

For the time being, my visit was to acquaint my dog with the sand and ocean. Since it was her first time, she wasn't a huge fan of the waves but I think with time she'll enjoy it because she loves water.


To end the afternoon I picked up some good ol' California food courtesy of In-N-Out. I miss eating cheeseburgers, although the animal style fries are always delish!


For those of you who don't live out west (it just used to be California but now there are locations in Nevada, Arizona, Utah, and Texas) have you ever had In-N-Out? So good! You must try on a visit.

Oh you lucky Californians! You get In-N-Out and gorgeous beaches! :) I love that place and I'm so bummed the one here in Texas is about 5 hours away from me! :(

Love the beach. I guess Shake Shack is like the equivalent of In and Out burger here in NYC. I've never had either. I know... I live a sad life! ;o)

ps I have a giveaway. Stop by if you haven't already!

The beach is always a fun way to spend a day off!

Those beach pics are just gorgeous! You are one lucky lady!

I had In-N-Out when I was in San Francisco! OMG. It was amazing.

I wish we could take our dog to the beach!

I love In-N-Out. I make sure whenever I am in Cali, I go to one. When I was in Vegas, I saw one but it was out of the way. These are the only burgers I will eat. There's just something about their bun.

Big dreams are the best! :) And I love LB and HB! :) YAY. I also believe my first stop in CA is going to be In'n'Out. ;) Hahaha!

Wait, am I crazy? Did you become veggie?? I've been to In N Out and had the grilled cheese & fries. I won't eat anything animal style because I have a deathly fear of mayonnaise, ha!

Looks like so much fun, I would love to take a trip to Laguna.

I'm so obsessed with In-N-Out -- even though I've never had it. I think I'm obsessed with TRYING In-N-Out.

Love the pics! In-N-Out burger, I didn't realize they were only in the those states. When I go home to TX in September, I may have to grab a burger from there.

Alyson said...

YUM! I've never been to one of those...

Gracie said...

A beach trip is always a yes from me. And I know that when I go to California I will get an In-N-Out burger :)

Michelle said...

Love the dog pictures! They are precious! Mmm.. IN-n-OUT! And the beach looks gorgeous! I'd love to go to California!

I would most def say you had the most perfect day! Beach and In and Out?! Lucky girl being so close to the ocean. Its beyond miserable here in Phx.

I want a puppy so badly, and I just know the dog beach would be one of our first stops!

And I adore In-N-Out. I had it for the first time when i went to visit a friend in LA a few years ago, and I made her take me there several times. When I boarded a plane to go visit another friend in San Fran, I then made him take me again. Ha! And they never protested! How is it that it can be so so good?!

Jules said...

Coco looks so cute in these pics and I'd give anything to have dog beach around me. We have the river, but I'd never let the dogs in there. I have to settle for my aunt & uncle's pool...lol.

In-N-Out looks so yummy and that's just another thing I wish we had on this coast :)

Ashley said...

I realllyyyy wish In-N-Out would come to the southeast!! It's too good!

Holly said...

this looks like the perfect day!

Christina said...

What a great day!!! I get In-N-Out ever time I'm down there. But I've yet to try animal style fries. I get a cheeseburger, fries and a chocolate shake every single time. Looks like I've got to branch out!

Bestie said...

what a fabulous day!!!

I could eat In & Out non stop forever! I love that place!!!
