What a trip! The week seems to have flown by and now I'm HERE! Unbelievable. Still getting settled and finding my way around, but it feels great to be here. Also still adjusting to the time change - I keep waking up at 6am. Let's face it, we all know that won't last. Weather is gorgeous. Kitties are sooo happy to be done with those car rides! [Rob and I are pretty glad too]. Now its time to figure out what the heck I am doing here! Waiting to hear back from a few companies, basically. Since its a holiday weekend I'm sure I won't hear anything til Tuesday, so I get to hang out til then. Too much to do and see here!  

Rob and I got in yesterday around 3pm. Found a cool pizza joint to grab food at, left the cats at the hotel, and drove into LA to see the Hollywood sign. We ended up in Hollywood Hills, which is a crazy winding road neighborhood that is literally on a very steep hill!! It was awesome, but I think I scared Rob a bit. Haha. I have good distance judgement, luckily, and we made it through some close spots. There's a great spot to get pics and a dog park and picnic area for those brave enough to make the drive there. That's where we got these couple of pics of us, and the surrounding area. Saw Hollywood Lake Drive too. 

Then it was only 4:30 and I was pretty determined to get to the beach [lets face it, Rob didn't really have a choice], so we headed off to Santa Monica. We drove past the boardwalk and down to a less crowded part of the beach and walked around a bit. The water was definitely cold but I think I've swam in colder! And there were some brave souls attempting to go all the way in. Crazy. Back towards the boardwalk, we saw some guy putting on a show with snakes, which I really wanted to see! Wouldn't that have been awesome, mom?!? But we didn't want to walk 5 miles back up there with all the crowds. 

Sun started going down so we drove back, got some not-so-great Chinese food [oh well, now I know] and ate in the hotel room. Then we both pretty much passed out! Whew! 

This morning I got a bunch accomplished:

1) took Rob to the airport

2) found my closest Starbucks [duh]

3) went to a close church

4) washed the car at a coin-op wash [I like to do it myself] - had to get the bugs off the windshield! 

Thats enough for a Sunday :) Going to workout then pool, dinner, and sleep!  

Thanks for reading my silly thoughts and memories on this trip. I may keep writing just for fun. Soon I'm going to put all the pictures on Facebook, so look for them there. Love you guys!!
