Happy birthday my love!!!!
Happy birthday my love!!!!
My dear friend Catalina happened to be in the city too. Her friend, now turned my friend Heather lives in Greenwich with her family so we took the Metro North for $10 from Grand Central Terminal with Tyler and stayed with them.
I have never seen a house so beautiful. We went out to dinner in Long Island and met other friends. Had many laughs over drinks and food. 🙂
I had decided to visit an old family friend in MD while I was in the city. We arrived to NY on Friday am after a red eye and we left for MD on the Amtrak on Monday at 4am out of Penn Station. I ended up falling asleep and missed my exit. Luckily the next exit was still close to my friend’s house so we had a wait a bit while she arrived.
Julia Gulia has been in my life before I actually met her. My mom and her mom were high school friends from Korea and when I was in 7th grade and when Julia was in 8th grade, we met in person. Since then we’ve been inseparable. We had a nine year hiatus while in our mid-20s to now but we picked up right where we left off.
We got into MD around 8am and left on Wednesday at 8pm. we had a great full three days in Bel Air and it was not enough.
We catched up, watched tv, played with the children, ate and repeated for three days. Tyler stayed home with us on the first day but on the 2nd and 3rd day, he went to the TKD studio with Julia’s husband. He had summer camp going on at his business so it worked out well! Tyler met new friends and was able to be active all day instead of being on his iPad playing Fortnite.
I was so sad to leave but exctied about our future meeting. Because as teens we saw each other every year (visiting one another from LA to VA) or sometimes twice a summer, we wanted to keep the tradition for our children. 🙂
A week after I got back from London, Tyler and I joined Bear in NYC. It was our first trip together to the city. Tyler had already been there with his other family a few times and with school. Bear had to go to NY the day after we got back from London for training and we joined him on his 3rd week there.
Too bad the weather was shitty because it rained most of the time.
I have never been to the UK. One thing on my bucket list was to go to Monaco for the Grand Prix but scheduling and $$$ was a factor. As a substitue, we ended up getting tickets to the Grand Prix in Silverstone, UK. We used the Fourth of July holiday to take the vacation while I was working and Bear was transitioning from his old job to his new one.
We stayed in Shepard’s Bush and went to Paris for a day. It was an exciting time since the UK had made it to the top something for World Cup. We got to experience London and Paris during the last final games of the World Cup. The energy was UNREAL.
The best part of the trip was the F1 race of course. My future ex-husband Lewis Hamilton did not win the race in his home country but he made it to 2nd on the podium after a bump right after takeoff.
I can’t wait to go to all the F1 races in the future!!!
As for London, I’m okay with never coming back. It was just another version of New York with mediocre food.
I use the pouch for my toiletries, Jim bag for gym, and the backpack for my overnight stuff.
Love that they used my Jim for gym bags. 🙂
I usually dress up when we have an event or have a client meeting. This time we had a Grand Opening event in Santa Barbara so I got dressed for the occassion.
I love Elizabeth and James dresses for my professional life. It’s simple, girly and easy. Plus they have a lot of great styles and colors.
As you can see, we are the camo family. Bear and I went to Silverstone for a race and made a week long trip out of it in the UK! I travel fairly light wouldn’t you say?
I loaned my favorite and probably only short shorts to Heather while I was in the city and I had to get a replacement. I found the same exact, or what I thought it was… same but it was a high wasited version! I actually like it.
The shorts were the ones that I always wear in Vegas because they are so bomb. Too bad they don’t have it anymore. These will do for now, I can wear it with a crop top!
I got this amazing set for so cheap for my next trip to Vegas!! Can’t wait because this outfit is fire!!!
