LA Trip

21 Aug

Hey guys!

First I wanted to thank everyone who has checked out my blog and favorited or followed the blog!  I’m still rather new to this, but it makes me happy that others can enjoy some of the silly things I do : ).

In other news, I just got back from a absolutely phenomenal trip to my home town of Los Angeles!  It’s actually been a few years (2008) since I last visited.  And oh gosh, do I love the West coast.  As with any of my trips, it was filled with foodie adventures, and with a place like LA, well, the adventures can seem endless!  So if you’re interested in reading/seeing what shenanigans I’ve been up to, read on : ).

Some of our birthday party attendants included a royal alpaca, and a not so happy money octopus.
