Sisters’ Guide to Santa Barbara

November 4th | older posts




1. Stay in Carpinteria. It’s less expensive and more quaint.
2. Eat at Jack’s for breakfast, Pascucci’s for lunch and Chase for dinner. Ignore that too full feeling and keep eating.
3. Take a nap, stay up late and sleep in.
4. See a movie. Preferably something totally fun, cheesy and/or sappy.
5. Eat Thrifty’s ice cream at least once.
6. Find one great thing to splurge on. I found a totally fun sweater at Anthropolgie. I won’t tell you how much.
7. Laugh, act like a dork and laugh some more.

    To quote a song from Dirty Dancing,
    “Now I’ve had the time of my life…and I owe it all to you!”

    I love, love, love, love you!

    I didn’t know Thrifty’s was still in business! I remember stopping for ice cream there on the way home from the pool. Single scoop, chocolate almond crunch, .32!
