sunshine and animal fries



our trip so far has been absolutely wonderful...and i'm a little bit in constant awe at how lovely california is! the mountains have stolen my heart. as well as in and out burger.
so far we've visited the santa monica pier and malibu...the ocean here is just beautiful! i didn't expect to notice a difference between it and the atlantic...but everything stands out as its own here. 
it's been breezy, almost chilly, which makes me feel right at home. and i may have brought the rain in ohio here with me. my body refuses to acknowledge that i'm in a new time zone or on vacation, so early los angeles mornings and i have become good friends.

yesterday was shopping on melrose and a movie at the arclight. every time the hollywood sign was in view from the car i would squeal the worst squeals. this gal is a sucker for these sorts of things!

i hope everyone is having a good week!
i can't wait to share pictures with you next week. although, i think 90% of them are of palm trees.

  5. Love it! I'm dying to experience California one of these days. We're going on a vacation to southern Florida at the end of the month and I've already thought about how many pictures of palm trees I know I'll take :)

  12. I meant to post this when you were asking for suggestions, but I forgot to. Here is one place you must go while in LA:
    http://www.mjt.org/main2.html
    That's the website, and you can get the address from there. It's the Museum of Jurassic Technology. Which maybe sounds boring or weird, but seriously, just GO there!! You will not be disappointed. It is one of the coolest places I have been. I don't want to say too much, because I think it's better to go into it knowing as little as possible. But basically, it is a museum full of weird things - many are real, some are not, but it's practically impossible to tell the difference!

  18. Ohmygoodness!! You're so close to me!! Next time, we need to get together. :) I've lived in Southern California my whole life, and seeing the Hollywood sign never ever gets old. It STILL makes me want to squeal - there's something magical about it.

    In-n-out = also magical. ;) And if you can, go rummage through the giant $1 vinyl section at Amoeba Records on Sunset. It will most likely turn into you sitting on the floor looking at stack and stacks of records for hours while drinking coffee. It's oddly calming, and you'll find treasures - it's a must if you're in LA, especially if it's raining. Also, driving through Bel Air while eating cupcakes is great fun. Fancy mansions and sugar, you can't go wrong. haha. <3
