Happy Monday everyone!
Those of you who follow me on Facebook know that I promised to post some photos from my recent trip to Los Angeles. I have to say that it was one of the best vacations I’ve had in a long time. It was relaxing, but not in a lying-by-the-pool kinda way. We walked A LOT!
We trekked around Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Calabasas. We walked from Santa Monica Pier to Venice Beach.
We went on tours of celebrity homes and even spotted Russell Crowe outside a cafe and Jason Segal on Hollywood Blvd! We goofed around in Madame Tussauds and ate our own weight in food.
The most fun day was at Universal Studios. We did all the rides! Everything was amazing and so thrilling!
One of the best and worst decisions of our week in LA was the decision to do the hike of Runyon Canyon. The views of the city of Los Angeles were breathtaking….the uphill hike was also breathtaking for a different reason. My glutes are STILL recovering 4 days on!
We went to many fancy restaurants including Nobu (fancy sushi!), Boa Steakhouse (paparazzi outside!!) and Beso (Eva Longoria’s restaurant). Despite spending many hundreds of dollars on fancy fare at those establishments, our favorite meal cost 12 bucks at this fine eatery:
For those of you who have never experienced In-n-Out Burger….make your way to the West Coast immediately! I don’t eat McDonald’s or Burger King or usually any fast food at all, but this place is phenomenal!
Yup, we sure had an amazing week! However, it’s always nice to come home too! I missed my own bed and my morning cup of Irish tea! I’ve got some exciting give-a-ways and tutorials coming up on the blog in the next few weeks….so I hope you’ll check in frequently!
