So here's a quick photo review of the trip.
|Our AH-mazing view of the city from the backyard of the place where we stayed.|
|The Chinese theater|
|Me fitting my hand perfectly into my fav leading lady's handprint, Miss Judy Garland.|
|I've been told I look like Hilary Swank (among other celebs, too), so I had to snap a pic of her star.|
|My first real great view of the Hollywood sign. We were staying up there in those hills!|
|Me and my mom at the WB studio VIP tour.|
|A "perk" of the VIP tour: getting to stand on the Central Perk set from FRIENDS. Ha, get it? Perk!|
|Another bonus? Me standing on Lorelai Gilmore's front porch!|
|Rodeo Drive is certainly not where a Cheapskate belongs! But it was fun to pretend :)|
|The beautiful palm tree lined streets of Beverly Hills.|
|The most amazing cupcakes. Second to my friend Peaches' cupcakes, which she makes with love.|
|Griffith Observatory - where the end of Rebel Without a Cause was filmed.|
|The life changing french toast I had at The Griddle Cafe — they were stuffed with Nutella! Yum!|
|The ferris wheel at the Santa Monica Pier. What a fun place! Perfect for family fun, or dare I say a date!|
|The stunningly gorgeous canals of Venice Beach.|
|Me at the canals|
|Venice street sign. I bought the fantastic vintage dress from yesterday's post at a store across the street.|
|If you know me, you know I love Disney! And now I love their fence posts at the Disney studios, too.|
|Can you see The Seven Dwarfs acting as columns and holding up the top of the building?|
|We had a great hike Sunday afternoon at Runyon Canyon.|
|Finally! We spotted a celebrity — LL Cool J — at Katsuya . He was so incredibly nice to us tourists!|
|Just one fantastic view from the PCH that we took up the California coast to Monterey.|
Another breathtaking view of God's creation via the Pacific Coast Highway to Northern CA.
|It was a long drive up the coast, but totally worth it to see my old college roomie Abbe! |
Here we are at the Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco.
|Lombard Street in San Fran - "the crookedest street in the world". Can you see how crazy curvy it is?|
|Funny little sea lions at the Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco.|
|The "Painted Ladies" in San Fran, or what I like to call the Full House houses!|
Hope you enjoyed my virtual tour of California! Happy Friday everyone!
