Well would ya look at that! Last week just FLEW by!!! It was awesome just having a week off from everything and enjoying time with my family in beautiful L.A.
However, it is pretty nice to be able to sleep in my bed, in my own room. I’m feeling SUPER stressed though! I have so, so, so much to get done before school starts that I’ve had about .2 seconds to even do anything with the blog. So here is a wrap up of everything else that happened in L.A. that I have not had a chance to talk about yet. Recipe comin’ at ya on Wednesday!
We of course had to make a special stop at the L.A. Farmer’s Market! SO MANY yummy things in there and sweet little shops. The place is huge! It’s the oldest farmer’s market and certainly something extraordinary that you should for sure check out if you are ever in the area.
So many yummy looking treats everywhere!!!
yummy yummy yummy! As I’m sure you can all tell, I was super busy snapping away pictures on my phone, I can’t even imagine what a nut-job I must’ve looked like. oh well! The sacrifices of a food blogger
After that, we went on a long drive along the Pacific Coast Highway and saw all the beautiful sights along the way.
So cool how the road just splits the rocks apart!
Crazy how the rock is on one side, then the ocean (below) is on the other side!
I’m such a sucker for the ocean, I could just stare at it forever!
It seemed like we saw in infinite number of doughnut shops in L.A. for some reason! So maybe Californians aren’t as healthy as well think…
We also did some hiking! We went by the Hollywood sign and had an incredible view from the top
Another stop we made was at the Santa Monica pier. It was a fun little place with a few little shops along the pier and a cute carnival, theme-park sort of thing going on. I can’t even imagine how pretty it looks at night-time!
Venice Beach was quite an adventure. There was definitely plenty of interesting, funny things to keep you entertained around there. It’s pretty funny what some people will do for a little money!
Have the gas prices been going up everywhere?? I’m sure they have! They were pretty steep in L.A., but they’re even worse in Chicago. This (above) was just the line to get gas at Costco!!! It’s usually quite a bit cheaper there so I’m assuming that’s why the line was so ridiculous. Absolute craziness
Bye L.A., it was fun, I’ll miss ya and hope to see you again soon!!! :’( And I’ll of course miss my big brother, who works out there, with all my heart!
