The Figs are blowing town

After a hectic week that has left me frazzled and feeling like I'm behind on every aspect of my life, we're headed out this afternoon for a small much-needed vacation.

We'll be joining four other families (together we're known as The Usual Suspects) for a beach vacation in the central coast town of Cayucos. The drive will be long and the stay short, but the idea of just driving away with my family sounds irresistible.

And hanging out with this group always leaves me feeling recharged and incredibly fortunate.

We'll be staying in a large house right on the beach.

It's two units, and our family will be staying with one other in the upstairs units. Downstairs is where the real action will be though.

The living room is the most hilariously tacky 1960s-style party room. Doesn't just looking at it make you want a drink?

Have a good weekend! Back on Monday.

I've been to Cayucos a couple of times, and just LOVED it there. And what's the name of the town nearby that's sort of an artist's colony? Harmony, maybe? Loved that, too.

So jealous. Have fun.

Drink when looking at that room: definately ... but then, I'm biased: I want a drink anyway :)

That room begs for some cheesy board game to be played in there! Have you ever played Apples to Apples, it is our new family favorite when the whole fam damily is together.

Looks like SO much fun!
