So most of you know I spent all of last week, down in LA - and what a week it was!
First off, my husband and I went to Osteria Mozza last Monday night for dinner - and you'll never guess who sat down next to me...as in, not even two feet away...as in, I seriously could've leaned over and touched his beautiful arm.
Holy bejeezus it was none other than Lenny Kravitz, aka Cinna from THE HUNGER GAMES!!!
Now normally I think I do pretty well when faced with those of celebrity status - after all, they're only human, too, right?
But...I am a huge Lenny Kravitz fan - and well, we don't need to delve into how much I love THE HUNGER GAMES. So needless to say, I was a little, uh, star struck, when he sat down. And a little embarrassed to say, when he turned and smiled at me, I sheepishly giggled and looked at my toes, and I possibly may have even blushed.
And then awhile later, I sneezed - and he turned and said, "Bless you"...and I could barely muster a mumbled, "thank you" in response.
No idea what was wrong with me. But at least by the time we left, I managed to say something somewhat intelligent about hoping he enjoys his dinner. Even though I really wanted to gush all over him and tell him how much of a fan I am.
And while that may have been the highlight of my week, we still did a ton of other things - like Disneyland on my birthday.
I even got me a pair of Mickey ears, with my name and birthday embroidered on the back. Didn't even blink that for 2 pairs of ears (my husband wanted a pair, too), it ran me $60, cause it was all about the experience!
And dinner at Yamashiro's was amazing - no celebrity spottings there, but I did manage to drag my husband to the mall down the street afterwards, and buy my copy of INSURGENT!!! Which, holy bajolly, I loved and devoured in 3 days. I would've read it faster, had I been allowed to hole up in my hotel room and plow through it...but my husband had other plans, such as:
Six Flags Magic Mountain.
And let me tell you, all the anti-nausea meds in the world, didn't have a chance against the thrill rides of this park.
But mostly because, I've come to learn that my husband is crazy.
There wasn't a kid in that entire park, that had the energy my husband had. Seriously, he ran from getting off the ride, back around to getting back in line for it again. And it wasn't like we just sat in any ole' seat.
We always had to sit either in the front or the back.
And while I may have felt like crap, my husband was having the time of his life...and considering he let me oogle like a school girl over Cinna, I at least had to give him this. And I'll admit, I was having a great time, as well.
But while the weather was poop - cloudy, overcast, and mid-sixties the entire week - I will say that it was so much better than having to be in the office!!
And at least we finished off the week with one of my favorite all-time eateries:
All I can say is, yum - and I wish we had one up in Seattle!
Net / net: LA was a blast. And I'm sad to have to trudge back to work. But I can't believe Lenny Kravitz spoke to me! Holy squeeeeeee!
Which leaves me to ask:
