Balboa Island at Christmas Time & a Happy List

Balboa Island is pretty much one of my favorite places, ever.
You can see my other post about it's beauty here.

This Jewish girl loves Christmas lights, and Christmas lights at Balboa Island?
Even better hehe.
During the holiday season Balboa Island pretty much turns into a magical Christmas lights wonderland. 
Almost every house (and boat) is covered in an incredible Christmas lights display.

Over Thanksgiving weekend we went to check out the first few houses that were lit up.
These are some of the pictures from the evening...



Oh Balboa, I heart you



A little creepy, but a lot of cool

In typical Thursday fashion, I leave you with a little Happy List
I'm happy that
1. I was able to indulge in yummy chocolates and wine tasting with work friends tonight.
2. I have a sweet boyfriend who is a good sport and attends work events with me
3. I'll soon have a Kinect. Zumba on the Kinect is in my near future, hoorayyyy
4. I passed 200 followers.. Call me nerdy, but hey.. it made me pretty happy
5. I'm getting together with a few of my favorite San Diego bloggers tonight.
6. I won these lovely greeting cards from Taylor
7. I decorated for Hanukkah this week.
8. I went to the beach after work yesterday and... it was just beautiful.
9. today I get an ass kicking at pilates, it's necessary (after last night's chocolate and wine)
10. that tomorrow is finally Friday

Have a great day my lovelies...

xoxo,
Tamms

I love #4 and #10! Gaining followers is a big feat, but you have an awesome blog so it should come as no surprise! I must say, I think that this week have been extremely long. Happy soon-to-be-Friday to the both of us!

Balboa is pretty much my favorite place ever. My husband and I always say we don't want a place in Beverly Hills, we want a cottage on Balboa. Then we will know we have made it! I think I might need to do this sometime within the next few weeks.

Kaity said...

Those are some impressive light displays! I haven't even gotten around to putting lights on my tree yet! Haha

Ashley said...
