Orange County and Beyond!

Hey, I'm back!

My internet is fired up and roaring. My cold has subsided. And I have pictures from LA to share!

Leslie and I drove! It's only about a 7 hour drive! We were so excited when we got there that I had a hard time falling asleep. It was nice to see Erica! I miss her all the time.

The first day in the OC was spent in downtown Orange. We went to Cuban food, explored around Chapman University, took lots of pictures, saw Tangled (for free!!), and then we went to downtown Fullerton that night for drinks and ended the night with a bowl of Pho at 3:30am. The trip started off with a bang! It was the longest day ever! 9am-4am (the next day)

Saturday, Chris (Ericas boyfriend) picked Leslie and I up. We went to Disneyland for a little bit and waited for Erica to get off work. We decided to do dinner that night at the Boiling Crab. It was a fun place to eat. After dinner, we had a Joe Latti (the best thing ever) and then we all went to Dave and Busters to hangout with a group of people. ended up being a semi early night for a Saturday.

Sunday was our day to go play in LA. We started off with brunch that turned into being a late lunch because the wait was so long at the Griddle Cafe in West Hollywood. It was bomb! The serving sizes of the pancakes is ridiculous! After, we drove up the crazy streets of Hollywood to go to the Hollywood sign. It was a really nice day in the city. Walked around the walk of fame and drink some coffee. Drove through Beverly Hills and then to Pinks for Dinner. Then we went to City Walk in Universal Studios to go to a dueling piano bar. We saw Quentin Tarantino in the parking garage of the city walk. It was really exciting to say the least. We said hi to him. haha

Monday, we drove to Venice Beach to meet up with our friend, Dan. What an interesting area. Lots of people to look at and lots going on. While we were there they were filming 90210 (or so we were told). It was an awesome day to be at the beach...cool but perfect visbility. We watched the sunset then headed to a local bar for food and drinks. Played fun games and talked for a few more hours. Then headed back to Fullerton to go out for a little bit. Had a couple drinks, late night pastrami sandwiches at the Hat and went to bed.

Tuesday, I woke up feeling funny. Packed. Ate. Drove home. By the time I got home I was feeling really crappy.
I was supposed to go back to work Wednesday but I ended up staying home with a fever, achy body and head. for 3 days. with no internet working. I was just thankful my sickness held off until I got home. ha!

I can't wait to go back down to visit Erica. We always have so much fun and eat way too much. But who doesn't when they are on vacation? She is coming back up to Nor Cal in Feb. yay!
