Andrew and I will have been married 17 years later this month. Hijole! but that's a long time--and I mean that in a good way.
Well in celebration he called me last week with the surprise that he's got a conference in Los Angeles the week of our anniversary (and while that's a surprise it's not necessarily the good kind unless you keep reading) and has made arrangements to take me with him. Woo hoo!
I'm going to California!
So we're heading south on June 16th and will be staying through the Friday night but my issue is this: I've been to Los Angeles quite a few times but this will be the first time I'll be hanging out by myself for a few days. Andrew will be in conferences until Friday and we've got plans for that day but on Wednesday and Thursday I want to have some fun.
What would you recommend I see or do those days? I've done the theme parks to death, seen Hollywood and Beverly Hills, been up and down the coast but there have got to be some great off-the-beaten-path things to do in L.A. that are just begging for my attention.
Any good places to eat? Fun museums? Fun stores? Must-see attractions not affiliated with a mouse? Help! If I don't get some good ideas I may end up wandering the floor at Ikea for two days.
And if you're looking for something to do please consider entering the Write-Away Contest this month. The topic is "food" and Michelle at Bleeding Espresso is the beautiful Italian judge just waiting to read about your food forays--deadline is June 21st so starting writing! You might just win a picnic basket with fixins for two!
If I can mention one more thing--seems I just learned I'm up for a blog award at BlogLuxe by A Classic Housewife (how sweet of her!) Who would have thought? They allow a vote a day per person and it's under "Blog I've Learned the Most From" and if you feel like making an Alaskan mom's day . . . just click on that BlogLuxe link, pick the bottom category and scroll down till you see me.
