Well my vacation is off to an amazing start! The best feeling in the world is not having to work for 1 week! I kicked off spring break and vacation with a little dinner party and get together with the girls at Erin’s place in Phoenix. We (and by we, I mean she) made fish tacos with rice and beans. And dare I say it was delicious beyond reason. We drank wine and ate tacos and dished on all our recent scandals. Girls night doesn’t happen nearly enough.
I forgot to take pictures of the amazing organic chocolate chip cookies she baked afterward. Whoa, I ate like 4… 0r 9, who’s counting?
After sleeping for 2 and 1/2 hours I was up and packing for California in a flurry. I headed off with a cooler filled with Smucker’s Uncrustables and Sugar Free Red Bulls. After about 2 hours I was already completely sick of hearing myself sing, but I carried on belting out my jams nonetheless. 5 and 1/2 hours later I arrived in Long Beach where my friends live. We quickly readied ourselves in our fabulous cocktail attire and drove off to LA. We made a stop at the X Repertory Theatre where Logan is taking conservatory classes and I will be interning this summer. We said hi to everyone and we were off to the pilot taping for Tyger’s Aunt. We creeped along the Hollywood 101 and drove down Sunset looking for our destination. Finally we found wine bar Vintage Enoteca, now the challenge of finding parking. We didn’t partake in any of the wine but the food was amazing. I had a spicy tuna panini and Tyger had Ox-tail pasta. We were riding high on food. Not to mention the amazing variety of people to watch and all the people who showed up to help out with the pilot to mingle with. Everyone was super nice and we made friends to hang out with in the future. After hanging out for awhile it was time for the taping to start. Lisa (the star) is a hand analyst and she really knows her stuff. She started out analyzing everyone’s hands to find “love matches” to show her setting up. Mine didn’t match up with anyone’s but Tyger’s matched up with Willough’s. Their pairing wasn’t needed for the taping, however. But as were prepped to leave she did one last hand analyst of the four of us standing outside (Tyger, Will, Willough, and me.) Turns out that the curved lines on my hands mean that I like to enjoy the journey to the fullest. Couldn’t be more true.
On Tuesday, after catching up on my zzz’s and Tyger’s audition for a student film, we hit Huntington Beach. Stopping for amazing fish tacos at Wahoo’s, of course. So much good food so far! We hung out at the beach for awhile, the breeze picked up and made us cold so we hit the road back to Long Beach and stopped for frozen yogurt at Yogurtland in the Belmont Shore area. So far this has been an amazing trip and I can’t wait to see what tomorrow has in store for me! It’s so amazing not having a plan and being here to just chillax.
