Saturday: LACMA Visit, Salmon, and Martinis!

On Saturday we went to the World Famous Canter's Deli on Fairfax with a groupon I'd purchased!  J got the pastrami sandwich which was sooooooo goood.  It didn't need mustard or anything.  Mmmmm I could eat that pastrami every single day and we gobbled it up before I could take a picture ooops!

Afterwards we walked over to a thrift shop where I got the cutest top ever for $5 :) pics coming soon!

Then we went to LACMA for some culture.  I love LACMA!  I have a membership and it's great because it's good for me and another adult for a whole year.  It definitely pays to have a membership because now we always have something to "do" when we have no other plans and we don't want to spend a bunch of money!  We fed the parking meters two or three dollars and took in a couple hours of culture (which is about my limit at museums!)

Zillions of streetlamps!

Later that night we used a travelzoo deal that J purchased for dinner at The 6 Restaurant where we feasted on corn saute and tacos for appetizers followed by salmon and steak frites.  YUM!!  The deal also included two glasses of wine :) 

I just LOVE groupon and travelzoo deals.  All you pay is tax and tip for delicious meals!!!

We were soooo stuffed but still had just enough room for dessert.  So on the way back to J's we stopped at  Lucys 51 where we had awesome martinis and the BEST creme brulee we have ever had.  I wish I could eat it all day, every day.  

What a great Saturday!  Hope yours was great too xo

Hello Again!

Wow, I haven't been around in a long time but Megan of Mackey Madness left me a sweet comment on an old post thanking me for commenting on her blog!  
So now I feel inspired :)

Life has been good.  I started a job for a cruise line in September and met my boyfriend a couple weeks later.  Been busy with work and my relationship.

A wonderful perk of my job is a free 7 night cruise every year.  At the end of March my mom and I went to Vietnam and Cambodia to cruise the Mekong Delta!  We spent three nights in Siem Reap, Cambodia touring Angkor Wat and all the temples before embarking a 7 nights cruise.  
It.  Was.  Ah.  May.  Zing.

Amazing Temples

My Silly Mama

I loved the columns for some reason

Monks at Angkor Wat!

I will definitely share a few more pics from my adventure later!  
For now I'll leave you with a couple pics from Memorial Day Weekend.  
On Sunday we went to Topanga Days - it has great music, food, beer, crafts, etc.
It's been going on every MDW since the 60s and is a bit of a hippie festival but I love it!  

A few pic from Topanga Days:

Face Painting!  A must at Topanga Days

Me and J.  Big hats are also a must!  Or umbrellas....I brought both!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone xo
