Once upon a Labor Day weekend four best friends went to California.

They lived in a beautiful house on the beach in a magical place called Oceanside.

Together they entered a coma of sleep, sand, laughter and chips & salsa.

For 6 days.

With (almost) no children. (Not mine anyway.)

It was amazing.
















Love these girls: Jessica, Anna, Mindy.

And they lived happily ever after.

The end.

P.S. Calicoma Bonus=a lovely brunch date with Sally Diva.


P.P.S. Check out the left side of the blog for a special feature, Fabulous Right Then: Calicoma Favorites.

What a completely fabulous trip! It looks like way too much fun. Fave picture- you 4 on the bikes. Love the action shots!

Summer and Dave said...

where did you get your green dress?! it looks GREAT on you!!! (i'm hoping if i get one it'll look as good on me too...i'm allowed to dream ;-)

girlfriend getaways ROCK!

Sarah S said...

awesome pictures!! the bike picture is great - I'm curious to know how you got so many great photos of all of you? (usually bystanders don't take the best pictures...)

I'm totally jealous of your full-blown time away from life too. I have yet to be away from my kids overnight. I'm guessing DMDG will be my first time - how crazy is that?

Sarah S said...

p.s. - I love your green shirt!!

DC Diva said...

Summer -- the dress is from Shabby Apple. You could totally rock it!

Sarah -- we were blessed to have Anna's husband around (but only when we wanted him ;) taking our pictures. Kind of like Ben did for the DMDG! Anna now lives in Oceanside so we saw her husband and kids a few times and Allen, who is pretty good w/ the cam, was kind enough to put up w/ our photo shoots. :)

Fabulous pics of the Calicoma!! Love the feet in sand shots (nice pedi's ladies:), riding on bikes, your green shirt (that matched Anna's necklace), your yellow shoes (so happy you decided to keep them), everyone's fab shades, yummy mexican food, just to name a few. It looked like a great time! Soo jealous!
