My Trip to California!


Those of you who follow along with my adventures on Facebook or Instagram likely know that I just returned from a two-week trip to California to promote my books and Welcome to my Farm TV Show.

While I had a blast out on the West Coast, it's so good to be home! 


I'm still trying to recover from a bit of jet lag, and catch up on things.

But I wanted to share some of the highlights of my trip with you. 

I had fun sort of carrying the Welcome to my Farm theme through my whole road trip by snapping photos at various spots along the way with a "welcome" sign!

I first flew to Sacramento where I appeared on Good Day Sacramento. 

Then I drove down the Pacific Coast Highway (in a Mustang convertible no less!) to Monterey, which I had never done before. 

Since I'm a huge fan of Big Little Lies starring Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman and others, the opportunity to visit the area where the show was filmed was such an experience!

And in fact, some of you might notice that I actually wore several dresses from Reese's clothing line Draper James during my California trip! 

I love her dresses! Maybe because I'm also short like Reese, they seem to just fit really well and be super comfy and flattering.

Anyway, I continued on to San Diego where I filmed a segment for Pet Patrol and got a chance to spend the morning with my friend Sara Bendrick and her chickens, then headed up to LA to appear on the Hallmark Home and Family show

I was originally on the show two years ago and just thrilled to be back! 

It's such a fun cast and set to visit - and an impromptu walking tour of Universal Studios followed the taping.

Before I left, I was fortunate enough to get tickets to attend a live taping of the Will & Grace show!

That was such a fun experience, and getting to meet Blythe Danner, who plays Will's mom in the show, back stage after the taping was just the icing on the cake. 

She was absolutely the nicest person. So warm and welcoming. (Thank you Hillary!)

While most evenings were spent in conventional hotels, one night I stayed at a vintage Airstream trailer park in Ventura (highly recommend Waypoint Ventura!).
And then I spent the final two evenings glamping in the Highland Park area of LA at La Boheme Living with my friend Hillary Danner.
Thank you to Hillary - you're an awesome host! 
And thank you to everyone who brought the "stunt" chickens to the TV sets for me.

(And for anyone who is concerned, I did have to get a permit from APHIS to allow the chickens to be moved within Los Angeles county due to the current Newcastle quarantine.)

I've been out to California a few times now and each time I've found new places to visit and explore - it's such a huge state. I really did enjoy this last trip though.... it was SO eye-opening in so many ways.

And this trip was especially memorable since I stopped at so many places my husband was stationed while he was in the Navy - Monterey, San Diego....

Anyway, enjoy this peek at my week! 
I arrive at Good Day Sacramento 

This is one of the Draper James dresses I mentioned, SO cute and comfy!

I love this shirtdress from Tradlands! It was perfect for travel.

Hair and makeup!

Marty gave me a priceless tip for covering up undereye circles - peach concealer!

Camera ready!

It's a wrap! But the chickens want to stay and help clean up all the Grubblies!

Now it's time for a quick tour of Universal Studios!
