California Adventures: Day One

The first time I came to LA was with my dad and he surprised me by pulling a giant bag of candy out of his suitcase when we got to the hotel. The only thing better than that, is coming to see California Girl. She is the perfect reminder that everything is better when you do it with a friend.

Every weekend with California Girl involves at least one visit to a fabric store, and Michael Levine’s is the mother of them all:

All of that creative inspiration made us hungry, so we hit up the most appropriate place for two hungry girls to eat, The Homegirl Café.

We saw a little local wildlife:

And then needed some dessert. I scream, you scream, we all scream for raw, vegan ice cream? We did and sampled some Kind Kreme, it was delicious.

Eventually we made it back to the California Girl B&B where I was served tea and biscuits (actually a tasty homemade gluten-free muffin) while she pretended to work for a little bit:

And before long, we tucked in for a little television and dinner. I like to think that I changed California Girl’s life by introducing her to ONCE UPON A TIME.

All in all, the perfect Date Night (for One): Girlfriends Edition.
