Workin' It Wednesday's: Weekends.. Pacific Coast Highway Edition...


Happy Wednesday, lovelies!! 
Today I'm linking up with my sweet blogging friend Shay and a bunch of other talented blogger's, please feel free to join in the fun! Head to Shay's blog, grab the link and link up! I would love to see a weekend in your life too!!

We are sharing a Weekend in our life!!!

 I am excited to share the weekend Mr. V and I had driving the Pacific Coast Highway!! Just a head's up...
There will be A LOT of pictures!! 



I am a born and raised Southern California girl who has made a small town in Arkansas my home. It's where we have decided to raise our three beauties and spend our days living a simple life. We own a few business, attend church and spend a lot of time on our porch talking and laughing. It's a very different life from the hustle and bustle of Big City living!!
That being said we still miss California and LOVE going back to visit family, smelling the salty sea water, eating yummy food and getting our fill of the bigger then life lifestyle.


My amazing In-laws wanted to spend a weekend with our beauties so that left Mr.V and I to entertain ourselves!! Mr. V has no issue surprising me with plans so he had the weekend planned out! First stop...

Calabasas, California...

Yes that's the town where the Kardashian's and many famous people live!!



What does one do in Calabasas you may ask? Well drink at the Starbucks that all the celebrities go to, of course!!






A quick caffeine stop then off to...
Malibu!!









Malibu is the perfect destination for a peaceful and tranquil day at the beach. 



A few hours here with a cold drink in your hand, the sun warm kissing your skin and the salty air blowing through your hair and I promise all your worries will drift away!!

Where we travel too we always make sure we look up the local Catholic Church's in the area. Malibu was no exception. We found a beautiful little church tucked away in the hills.




Attending Church even if it's not during Mass helps to refocus ourselves. Sometimes living bigger then life on vacation requires a few moments to give praise and thanksgiving for all the blessings he is giving you. It helps to ground us and remind us that nothing is possible without him. Thanks be to God!! 

After some waves at Malibu and giving thanks to God in the beautiful Catholic Church we made our way to...
Venice Beach Boardwalk!!!



Venice beach is hands down our favorite beach. We are huge people watchers and love to be in the center of living life to the fullest and this is DEFINITELY the place to do it!!

We ate lunch at one of the restaurants on the beach.. 
The Sidewalk Cafe & Sports Bar, where we had the most delicious food, drinks and met a wonderful group of people who we quickly grew to love!! We shared stories, food, drinks and exchanged number's with these wonderful friends! Best lunch we had in California thanks to them!!



The food and service are incredible!! If you are ever in the area make sure you stop in, you'll love it!!



Strangers who quickly became friends!!

Off to enjoy Venice beach with the love of my life...







After a fun filled weekend with Mr. V being beach bums we headed back to our second home to see our beauties. On the way out we saw this  amazing mural of St. Mark and then made another quick Starbucks trip.








XO,
Malani
