Last weekend, I flew to Los Angeles for a girls' weekend with two of my college girlfriends, Peaches and Sarah C. It was a fun whirlwind of a trip that included (among other things): wine, margaritas-in-a-box with lime flavored ice, Swedish fish, gummy bears, hummus, Mexican food, Ke$ha, cranes at crosswalks, an inflatable mattress, 4 AM, Twilight, almost driving to see to the store "Dash", traffic, stalking Conan O'Brien (sort of), two broken toilets, many hours in the car and a whole lot of indecision.
The highlight for me, though, was hiking to the Hollywood sign last Saturday night. There is something uniquely special about walking on dirt roads in danger of collapse and/or mud slides at dusk with two of your best friends from college. And just WHERE did that cop car go?!
If you look closely, you can see the "H-O-L-L" of the Hollywood sign...
Another trip highlight was getting to see Susie and Aaron completely out of context in a different city. Although I am sad that Susie will be leaving Dallas soon to move to LA, it is good to know that she will only be a short plane ride away. And, if you play your cards right, that plane ticket may only cost $7.50 (thank goodness for free Southwest flight coupons and the wonderful Grammy Pammy!).
Peaches, Sarah C, Susie, Aaron...

Aaron: "I once spoke Harrison Ford once. He was flying around with two men in his Beaver."
