As a Hotel Management major we study a lot of hotel properties around the country. One class in particular studied the Hilton Costa Mesa hotel in sunny California. After the long semester I felt the need to go visit this property with my hubby for a little fun and relaxation. It ended up being such a fun trip. I'm so glad that we went. The first two days were so beautiful the sun was shining and it was in the 80's. We checked into our hotel which was very nice. The first day we went and visited some important things from my childhood in Newport Beach. We did a ton of shopping and walking around seein the sights. We went to Balboa island where my dad used to live. It's this cute little man made island that you get to by ferry that has little boutiques and these small million dollar homes. We also went to Disneyland... Derek had never been... it was a little cloudy and chilly but so, so fun. We also got to see our good friends that moved down there for school. The whole trip was so fun and exciting and such a good break from every day life.
