I am back with a Photo Shootout post!! That means I am home and have access to my own computer and all its archived photos, plus new ones I just uploaded.
The theme this week is My Favorite Things and it kicks off a month long Christmas theme :) Though, it is favorite things in general, not Christmas things, but you can do favorite Christmas things :) To find out more about the topic and the the photo shootout in general go HERE. This week's theme comes from the photo shootout team.
I have a special treat for you this week with mine. Although I currently live in Kansas, my true home state is California and my hometown is Whittier, CA. My post will be my favorite things about California, since I have been there the past 3 weeks.
First up is a place I went to 4 times(3 different ones)....
Their Carribean Passion(what I'm drinking in the photo) is the best fruit smoothie ever and their Chocolate Moo'd and Peanut Butter Moo'd are better than any milkshake!!
That particular Jamba Juice was at my favorite place to be anywhere -- the ocean!!!
This(and that) was Huntington Beach.
To have a little fun I love going to this place...
And my favorite thing to do here is see the stunt show featuring these awesome fellows.....
One of my favorite things about my hometown of Whittier is this Christmas tradition -- the lighted Christmas tree on the old bank building!!!
American Savings started this(to my knowledge) and when Bright Medical took over the building they continued it. Unfortunately, they have switched to LED lights and it isn't as pretty, but it just isn't Christmas without it!!!! Glad I got to see it before I left.
A favorite thing to do in Whittier is to go to Rose Hills Cemetery to drive on this hill..
What is so special about it?? Well, I will tell you.... you can roll your car in neutral backwards up it!! Freaky. It is actually going downhill, but because of the landscaping it looks like you are going uphill. Look at the picture... doesn't it look like you are looking downhill?? Well, you're not, you are looking uphill!!!!
A new favorite place in California is here...
It is near LAX and makes the best glazed donuts ever!!!
Finally, no trip to California(even for a sad occasion like a funeral)is complete without a visit to the happiest place on earth...
And it also happens to be the site of my most favorite Christmas light display ever..
Next week I will be back showing photos closer to home here in Kansas :)
