Cody and I would live next to the beach if we could so California is one of our favorite places to visit! It’s only an hour and half flight from Salt Lake, and you can usually find great deals on airfare so we try and go down there once a month or every other month. Our favorite area to stay is Laguna. The beach front next to the Montage feels like Mexico or Hawaii. The water is the pretty turquoise blue color and it has the soft sand beaches. It’s usually not very crowded either which is always nice!

Beckam is such a little beach boy. It’s one of the few places he is content for an endless amount of time (since he’s started walking he gets into everything). He screams every time we run him through the water with the cutest high pitched giggle and loves to dig and play with the sand. The last couple weeks he’s gotten into this climbing and jumping stage. He will run and jump on the most random things, a pillow, his blanket, the dog, whatever. Well this weekend Cody and I had a big pile of sand going, we were building a sand castle to block the waves and B took a running start to jump on it and face planted into our huge pile of sand. He had sand EVERYWHERE. He was laughing and thought it was hilarious but poor little dude had sand coming out his nose for the next couple days. He is all boy!

I’ve always loved the look of one piece swimsuits, but have a hard time finding them because I have a long torso the cups of the top usually don’t make it to my chest. So I’m always trying them on every store I go to hoping to find the magic one that will fit and I finally did! I saw this one on sale and thought I’d give it a try and it fit! I was so excited. I loved the color and it was such a good price, under $30, plus you can get an extra 30% off the sale price (online only) CODE: JACKPOT. We hit the beach early so it was still a little cooler so I wore this lightweight linen top over it until it warmed up. I also got this striped pocket pullover (on sale under $20)  you may have saw on my snapchat that I wore to the beach a different day and these striped sandals I got on sale too (under $15 with CODE: JACKPOT). It’s safe to say I have an addiction to stripes 🙂

Hope you all are having a great week! Thanks for reading!

Christine
