Now that Christmas is over and James and I can finally breathe we are enjoying this downtime.
James had the rest of Christmas week off so we thought we would make the most of it and take a little trip somewhere. Our first inclination was to find snow, but since southern California has been so dry lately there isn't any real snow to be found within a four hour drive. (tear)
So instead we decided to embrace this warm weather (boo), and take an easy little overnight trip up north to one of our favorite weekend getaways- Cambria.
On the way we had lunch in San Luis Obispo and checked out their mission.
Makes for the perfect little stop to break up our drive.

|what's the first thing to do when you find your hotel room?|
snuggle and hide!
|I didn't remember the fog catcher having a pool- much less jacuzzi (tear) so I got to sit back and take photos of these cuties instead|
|this was me, and yes this was all the wine I allowed myself for the week|

|on the way back we stopped at Brothers in Los Olivos for lunch|
|and to end our brief holiday- a visit to Enjoy cupcakes!|
so our weekend consisted of lots of beach walks/explorations, swimming in the pool and jacuzzi, yummy meals out and a fun movie night in front of the fireplace with popcorn. The kids loved it cause it was like a real sleepover to them- it was definitely harder than we expected to get them to go to sleep though-
the crazy monkeys.
