:: Casa California ::

I was making a flower delivery the other day when I drove past this gorgeous Mission style home in an older neighborhood of Laguna Niguel. I know I'm so weird, but when I saw it I just died! I stopped, rolled down the window, and took a picture on my iPhone. Seriously? Who does that?

I've mentioned this before, but if I could design my dream home, it would be a Spanish Hacienda. This home is pretty much perfect if you ask me. I love the architecture, the bright white stucco, terracotta tiles, mahogany gate and garage doors, and even the landscape with perfectly manicured hedges, gnarled olive trees, and overgrown roses. I love everything about it. I can totally imagine myself living in a home just like this someday with my future husband and four boys. Hey, it could happen?

That's SERIOUSLY our dream home. A Spanish Hacienda, much like this one. There are a few other styles that I'd put up there in the dream home category, but we're always drawn back to this. I LOVE it!

I do that stuff all the time and YES, this home is gorgeous! I always dream that I'm inside making dinner in the kitchen when I drive by homes I love. There are so many down south, too!

I do the same thing, too! =) This house reminds me of the some of the homes in Nellie Gail in that newer development--I love how those have a casita!
