Last Stop Before Korea: California

After my trip home to Georgia, I made a stop in California to see my Dad. While I was in California, it was my Dad's personal mission to check some of the items off my 50 by 50 list. 

If you don't remember what this list is you can click here

Here's what I accomplished in California: 
1. Learned how to make a 3 layer red velvet cake from scratch. 
2. Learned how to make creme brule 
3. Learned how to change the oil in a car 
4. Learned how to change a tire
5. Learned how to change the battery in the car 
6. Took Mr. Fahey's cooking class. My final was to make meatloaf and smashed potatoes. 

I also went "reading" aka fishing with my Dad. Basically I sat by a river and read a book while my Dad wandered around to fish. A deer got really close to me while I was reading and that was pretty cool. 
We went into San Francisco to see the show Beach Blanket Babylon, America's longest running musical. If you haven't seen it and you're in the area- I would recommend it! 
We ate a lot of great food- both homemade and at some great restaurants.
Ate at Sprinkles Cupcakes. 
Watched a lot of Netflix. 
Went to a lot of movies. 
And had a great time. 

 Dad wanted to teach me how to drive stick, but I didn't want to take my trip too far. 

It was a nice relaxing trip before my 5,000 mile flight to Korea. 

Thanks for the trip Dad. 

*Note: I'm in the process of updating my 50 by 50 list. There are some things I am going to change around to make it better and more aligned with the person I am now. 


  1. Sounds like you had a completely productive trip! I am so jealous you guys are in South Korea. And I am mega excited to keep track of your adventures there. But I can imagine it was sad to leave paradise :) Thanks for stopping by Club Narwhal!

  2. Amy- Thank YOU for stopping by. I am a huge fan of your writing and your style! Leaving Hawaii was really sad, but I'm sure we will be back someday. It was time for a new adventure!


Thanks for taking the time to comment- I appreciate and read each and every one of them. All replies will be in the comment section, please check back to read them!
