Finally...I'm getting away!

It will only be for about 3 days, but believe me when I say they are a much needed 3 days from reality.  What is on the agenda you ask?  Not much...
Just the spectacular Los Angeles County Fair, which is one of the biggest in the world!!  Pardon my excitement but I haven't done much of anything for the past six months.  Don't worry, I'll be sure to take tons of pictures and eat so much food that I'll have to be carted around in a wheel barrow.  I haven't been there since I was a teenager and my kids have never been, so I'm sure it will be a hoot.

Then it's off to San Pedro, CA which is adjacent to Long Beach, CA.  A friend is having a car show and while my husband is drooling over old rods,  I'll be off snapping pictures and browsing the little shops.  Hopefully the weather permits pictures such as these...
All of these were taken in San Pedro, CA.  

I'll be seeing you all real soon with pictures in tow!


  1. ~~*Have a wonderful time Natalie!! Cant wait to see all you pics!~*~*Hugs,Rachel ;)~*~*

  2. It sounds like fun, maybe you can take photos of some of the things you eat, if you can restrain yourself before gobbling up the delicious food.

    I can understand wanting time off, even though I get school holidays no time ever feels like enough because I miss having my own time to do my own thing.

  3. Great images Natalie, that fair looks like soooo much fun!

    Have a wonderful Thursday!

  4. Enjoy the fair and eat all that deep fried goodness to your heart's content...then when in San Pedro take the bridge over to Belmont Shore and relax and stroll!!! It's my hood and I highly recommend!!



  5. Oh have fun Natalie!!
    Im sure you deserve the time away!
    Ill look forward to seeing your photos!!!
    Bye sweetie!!

  6. Oh the smell of Cotton Candy! I have the same routine at County Fairs and the L.A. Fair is one of the best! Corn Dog, Gigantic Pickle, Huge Egg Roll, then I make my way over to the Funnel Cakes. Of course hubby and I share ;) Otherwise , I might start to feel guilty ;) Have fun! Can't wait to see the pics, tami

  7. Have fun, Natalie! My Dad is a big hot rod guy too - he takes an old junk and turns it into an award winning car - amazing! xo

  8. Hi Natalie! I just wanted to thank you for visiting Heaven's Walk the other day! I love meeting new friends! I'm your newest follower and am looking forward to reading more about you! Enjoy your fall vacation, girl! I'm very jealous of your trip to CA! :)

  10. I don't know if you're still on vacation, but I hope you have a great time here in Cali. I haven't been to San Diego, so pleace tell me if I should :)

    The flea market in Rose Bowl is next Sunday I think. You should go if you have the change - it's amazing!!!
