Hey Hollywood...

Monday was my first full day in L.A. and I think I squealed twice. Once, when I saw the Hollywood sign the first time out of my room window, and two, when I saw my first Pinkberry.

I woke up at 4:30 am, worked out, ate breakfast, worked on my laptop a bit and then had to go kick off the tradeshow we're out here for. Mid afternoon, walked around downtown a bit and had a Hollywood encounter: walked right through a shooting of 24! It was pretty exciting, but it didn't get a squeal because I don't watch that show. On the other hand, my mom squealed pretty high when I told her about it.

After a couple of more hours on the laptop, I met up with a sweet friend of mine from high school that lives here and he showed us around. We drove down Sunset, saw the official Beverly Hills sign, parked on Hollywood and walked around on the stars. We stood in front of the Chinese theatre, and saw a real red carpet. Unfortunately, it was being rolled away because we had just missed the world premier of Robin Williams' and John Travolta's new Disney movie. The security guys actually said they were still in the theatre watching the movie!

Then we had dinner at a local spot (the most wonderful buttersquash ravioli EVER!!!!) and we headed back to the hotel. I was out as soon as my head hit the pillow.


Stay tuned for tomorrow's post - had a real celebrity encounter today!!!!


  1. ooooooh how exciting!!!

    24?? Jack Bauer??? Oh.My.

  2. You saw the taping of "24"? Awesome!!! Did you see Jack? How are the "lights?"

  3. Sounds like you're having a blast! Can't wait to read the next post!

  4. Egads! Can't wait to hear which celebrity it was.

    And, as = beauty!

  5. I am so jealous right now! The only time I went to LA I was sequestered for two weeks for a stupid reality tv show that I didn't even get onto... and i literally couldn't leave my hotel room except for dr appts, and to eat.

  6. Did you get to try the most buzzed about Pinkberry?! Is it everything you imagined & more?

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
