Everybody needs a vacation every once in awhile! What better way to spend time with your girls, see our beautiful country, and get away from this crazy thing we call life! Whether it’s a short trip to the beautiful Palms Springs or a long trip across country, a road trip is the best way to vacation. So grab the snacks and some friends, fill your gas tank, and follow the road where ever it might lead! We promise you will not regret taking this vacation!

Balloon Art

Water Balloon Dart Painting

This one is a great one for those random days that you catch the crafty bug! This D.I.Y. is a fun activity that might just leave you with a great decor piece. All you need is some water balloons, a blank canvas,  some paint (water based works best), and some darts. Fill the balloons with assorted paint colors and attach filled balloons to the canvas using strong tape or tacks. Now comes the fun part! Remember when you were at the fair as a kid and you would throw darts at balloons to win a giant stuffed animal? Do just that! Except this time you win a colorful painting to hang in your apartment! How awesome is that! This is probably the funnest way to be crafty we have ever heard of! Have fun you little Michael Angelos you!

 

Fun Fact Alert: The standard height for a dart board is between 7’6″ and 8′. So put your back into it guys and make a game out of it too!

Bucket List of 2014: Learn to Surf

Bucket List of 2014: Learn to Surf

 

 

We know, we live in California and we don’t know how to surf…..YET! Surfing is not only a fun and amazing activity but it great exercise! You can burn over 200 calories an hour by riding those waves. Just about any place with a good surfing beach (California, Florida, Hawaii, etc.) will have surf instruction places lining up to teach there skills. Although surfing is amazingly awesome just remember its no joke people! Be safe and let us know how your experience was!

And if you’re not ready for the real deal just yet, we found an awesome place where you can BBQ, drink, visit with friends, and learn to surf all at the same time!. With their simulation waves you can really get a handle on what it will take when you get out to the big bad blue. Plus its so much fun! Check it out Wave House HERE!

Fun Fact Alert: A person who hangs around a beach pretending to be a surfer but isn’t is called a ‘hodad’. Don’t be a hodad guys! Learn to be one with the waves!

Bucket List of 2014: Skydiving

Bucket List of 2014: Skydiving

Skydiving2014 is the year to start crossing things off that bucket list of yours, if you haven’t already begun! Whether big or small it’s always amazing to try new things. First on our mini 2014 bucket list is skydiving of course! 80% of people admit to having skydiving on their bucket list. And why wouldn’t they? It is one of the most exhilarating, adventurous, and downright scariest things you can do! To freefall from thousands of feet in the air and get a birds-eye view of our beautiful world is a dream experience. The youngest person to ever partake in this amazing experience was 4 years old! Yup, thats right, 4 years old. So what are you waiting for? Cross this one off your 2014 bucket list, and be careful you may just become addicted!

We found an amazing company right here in California that offers skydiving lessons and the opportunity to jump out of an airplane with an instructor. Skydive Perris will not only teach you all you need to know about skydiving but offers the experience for only $199. Not ready for the big jump just yet? They also have a 95 feet wind tunnel that simulates the skydiving experience! Check them out HERE!

Fun Fact Alert: A man holds the record for getting the first tattoo while skydiving. He got a ‘WFFT’ tattooed while freefalling thousands of feet in the air. WFFT stands for World’s First Freefall Tattoo! Thats just cray!
