You Know You Live in CA When....

In history last week, we started talking about the Gold Rush, and how so many people came to California in search of a fortune, which got me thinking about this great state, and what it means to be a Californian today. So, without further ado:

You know you live in CA when…

"The City" is San Francisco, not New YorkYou have also never once referred to San Francisco as “Frisco” and throw mad side eye at those that do.
oh gosh, just look how gorgeous it is. Actually love this city so much.

2. You eat pumpkin ice cream in October instead of Pumpkin pie because it's not cold enough

This was me yesterday. Go to Trader Joe's and get some if you haven't already!

3. You wear sweats and boots in 70 degree weather. I think she looks pretty cold. 

4. The Giants are the San Francisco Giants, not the New York Giants (baseball vs. football?)

YAY for Pablo Sandoval. 

5. Seasonal produce doesn't exist. All strawberries, all year. 

Bonus for us Norcal lovelies: "Hella" is a way of life.

  1. Ahhhh, some of these made me think of Armstrong! I love this post.

  2. What a lovely lifestyle and part of the world you live in! : )

  3. I love San Francisco. This post reminds me how much.

  4. This is a great post! I'm a California Girl myself - and I get the bonus for NorCal! I love that top pic up there. So beautiful. Gotta love Cali!

  5. That pumpkin ice cream sounds so good! I wish I lived in Cali. I feel ya on the hot weather, Florida's still pretty hot too. Makes it hard to strut around in trending fall attire lol Great post, I've always wanted to visit. San Fran!
    Thanks for linking up with PINK, and sharing this post :)
