Simply Traveling: Santa Barbara

Happy Monday readers!

Ever have one of those months where it feels like you’re in overdrive? Since mid-May to now, I feel like I’ve barely had a second to catch my breath! Anyways, I finally had some time to pull up some of my vacation pictures from Santa Barbara that I wanted to share. First and foremost, I want to thank our amazing friends Jeremy and Casey for sharing their beautiful home and taking us around town. We love you guys!

I’m convinced that Heaven looks a little something like Santa Barbara.

We ate at this amazing southern restaurant called The Palace where a live jazz band performed as we waited outside. (Sorry the pictures aren’t phenomenal, we all know how night time indoor restaurant lighting makes for the best photos!) The pre-meal bread consisted of 5 different types of amazing muffins, my personal favorite being the banana nut! Rob had a filet stuffed with crawfish and it was DIVINE. Also, can we talk about how much I love restaurants that serve drinks in mason jars!

For our lunch the next day, we heard rave reviews for Brophy Bro’s chowder but the line was insane so we ended up at Longboards. With it’s location right on the peer and with an open air deck, I can imagine some amazing Sunday brunches happening here! The cuisine was perfect “beach” food and their fish and chips were SO good. Also, their drinks were both appetizing to look at AND to drink. Win win.

 I have to tell you guys, since I graduated college, my nights out have become rather tame. But when our dear friend Jeremy got bottle service at Wildcat, we definitely took full advantage and the drinks never stopped coming! Apparently Katy Perry wrote her song Last Friday Night about a night at Wildcat and I definitely know why! Come to this place if you’re looking for a fun place to drink and dance!

Santa Barbara was SO much fun, and I’m already counting down the days til we make our next trip out there. 🙂 Any places in Santa Barbara that you guys recommend? I’d love more spots to take some beautiful photos!

 Also, don’t forget today is the last day (Deadline 5 pm PST) to take part in my first ever giveaway! Enter to win a hand painted Iron Man shot glass from my friend Sam. She’s amazingly talented and it’ll make for a fun gift for you or the man in your life! It’s as easy as liking us on Facebook 🙂
