October 2017 NEWS: Happy 50th Birthday To Me!

Thank you for your support of both We Said Go Travel and me! My 50 Things Before I am 50 Project has been amazing. For my 50th birthday, I went skydiving with GoJump Oceanside! I will be sharing the video soon and also the photos from my stay at The Pantai Inn in La Jolla which I loved!

 

I spent most of October celebrating in different parts of California with friends and family. I went on a road trip to Santa Cruz and hugged 1000 year-old trees with my high school teacher, Joannie Parker. I went to a double 50th birthday party in San Francisco during Fleet Week and had birthday dinners in La Jolla and Los Angeles.

Did you read about my time at the #SeeHer Emmy party in Hollywood? I loved learning about the Women in Entertainment Project. Did you know about all the luxury things you can do in Las Vegas? I drove a Lamborghini Huracán GT and swam with sharks at Mandalay Bay. I have really been enjoying my 50 things before I am 50 project. Here is more information about my stay in Rancho Mirage with my first golf lesson and when I drove BMW M3s on the race track!
