LA Getaway

Thanks all for your patience while I worked through some things. I was definitely burnt out and needed a break, but I’m back and I feel great! Last weekend I went to LA to visit one of my best friends and go to Paleyfest. It was a small getaway trip but it was just what I needed.

Since Jessica moved to LA a few years ago, I’ve been going down to visit her every couple of months. This past weekend ended up being the first sunny weekend LA has had for a while so it was perfect timing. I rented a car for $89 for two days through Hotwire at NU Car Rentals. It’s pretty easy to find cheap rental cars for LA you just have to be patient and check different websites.

That weekend we decided we were going to visit Santa Barbara, but on our way we took a detour to Carpinteria and I fell in love. It is about 2 hours from Los Angeles. It’s a smaller town than Santa Barbara, but just as beautiful and less people. The sun was shining, we had mimosas and laid out on the beach. After our beach time, we went to a quaint Thai restaurant in Carpinteria that was really well priced, $15.00 for our lunch special.

That Saturday we attended Paleyfest with Stephen Colbert. For those who don’t know what Paleyfest is (I didn’t either), it is a Q&A with actors, writers and other people in different tv shows. They have them with the cast of This Is Us, Hawaii Five – O, etc etc. Pretty much any major popular show has done a Paleyfest. The last time I saw Stephen Colbert was when I was in New York in 2017 so it was long overdue to see him again.

Sunday we went and got brunch on Melrose and walked down Melrose. I’ve never been to this area so it was fun to check out and explore. It was also so hot that I was regretting my choice of wearing jeans and was being a baby and complaining I needed Seattle’s colder climate. HAH

Anyways all in all it was a good weekend that I needed to help recover from my rut and now I’m back!
