While I was up north I got to spend some time at my parent's house. Mom and I traveled into the city to visit the Farmer's Market and run some wedding errands. While we were there Mom tried on this gorgeous big straw hat. I am obsessed with big straw hats; I love them and I think they look so classy! Pair them with some big sunglasses and you instantly feel like a movie star! I call these big hats "honeymoon hats" because it has always been one of my dreams to wear one of these big hats on the beach on my honeymoon (yes I know strange and specific dream).

To make my dream a reality I bought myself one of these hats a few months ago, but my mom does not own one. So she tried it on and look FABULOUS!! Like a movie star! In fact, within a minute of having put it on a guy came up to her and asked to take her picture. It was a little weird, but I'm convinced he either A) thought she was someone famous or B) thought she was really good looking. She looked so glamorous in it so I had to buy it for her birthday. I'm hoping she wears it on her cruise next month.

Speaking of classy and old-fashioned... to get up to Northern California for my trip I rode on a train (a real train) for the first time. I LOVED my train ride!! It was so relaxing, there was lots of room, and I felt like I was in an old Hollywood movie. I wish I had been traveling in 1940s attire to fit the part. Honestly I think I would prefer riding in a train to flying. Even though it takes a quite a bit longer its a lot less of a hassle than the airport.
Above are just a few of some old-fashioned things on my trip... the train I tode and a big clock in the middle of San Fran.
Stay tuned to see pictures of my honeymoon hat. Although I think my mom has me beat with her beautiful red and black one... pretty fun if you ask me!
