Wanted to say Hi real quick before I head down to the airport and go to Creative Escape! I'm so excited to go to CE as I've never done anything like it! I will make sure I bring back lots of pictures to show you and I'm sure I will be bringing back some GREAT new techniques to share with you as well!
We've had a whirlwind of a week with going up to LA with my hubby for Legally Blond:
I forgot my camera so these aren't so great with the iPhone... But, the show was REALLY good and I would recommend this if it comes to your town because it was FUNNY and a GREAT message for girls in the end!!
It was a beautiful weekend and our hotel was really close to the Hollywood sign (seen in background but very blurry)
We couldn't go up to LA without hanging out at the Grove and Farmers Market or a quick stroll down Rodeo Drive:
Oh my STARS, this place is in the Farmers Market, right next to this:
How's a person to choose?? These donuts are FAB people, the Food Network star Giada goes here and talked about them on her show... So which one did we choose?
We both went for the HOMEMADE DRUMSTICKS from Bennets! And WOW, were they GREAT! My friend Stacey lives right by this place, I don't know how you stay so thin girl!?! ;)-
This Grove is so beautiful and has sooo many wonderful shops in an outdoor setting! I have to say, it's WAY better then walking down Rodeo Drive. If you come to LA, don't miss this place!! It's connected to the Farmers Market so don't miss that either. It's not really a "farmers market" like you think, but a wonderful place with lots of food places, food stalls, gift shops but all old school, with a "Old Hollywood" vibe... You'll see pictures of Frank Sinatra eating at the Pizza Place or you can imagine Dean Martin or Marilyn Monroe had coffee and donuts here... It's just COOL...
But we did manage to go to Rodeo Drive for a while and actually the street behind Rodeo has more fun and afforadable shops and restaurants. We NEVER had bought anything on Rodeo Drive before but lance got me something for my birthday at the Juicy store:
Yup, my very 1st Juicy PURSE!!! O.k. which one do you think I got?? I'll leave that as a surprise and show you on my actual birthday...
But check out this cool sign in their store:
Oh and a restaurant in LA had a HUGE wall that was a scene with Marie Antionette!! It was night time and I didn't have my good camera but it was super sweet! I'm working on my Marie album right now and hopefully can play with it some more at CE... I've heard we don't have much time though so not sure if I can finish it or not..
Lastly, we stopped in this Paper Source store and it was GREAT! I could have spent hours in here looking at everything but I will say that I did score some FINDS for the kits!!
O.k. I've got to run and get on an airplane... Please pray for safety...
Hugs to all,
