I {Heart} L.A.

I truly do {heart} L.A.
You might think I am crazy, but this is my homeland...born and bred.
And, yes, that could also explain a lot...

So, I am off this week visiting L.A. and my family and friends.
We love coming to visit..it has been 4 years since we moved,
and I still really miss it...I know, call me crazy!

I thank you all for stopping by...please keep on coming,
but just so you know, the posts and commenting will be sporadic,
as my parents do not have wireless so I am sitting on a stool
with the Mac perched on to of a home copier,
praying I do not wake the kiddos.

Not sure what we are doing...
every time we visit my son asks to go to China Town...
Will we make it this time? Who knows?
He also likes to take Grandma and Grandpa
to Long Beach to play games at Shoreline Village
...yes that one is probably happening.
Disneyland is on the list, but we were just there.
So I am hoping the bribe of the new

and a round of miniature golf with only mommy
(Joe LOVES miniature golf)
will work instead...and I should be about $250.00 ahead.

I had a few posts already prepared...Pumpkin pancakes anyone?
See, I was just whetting your appetite with Sunday Stealing.

Regularly scheduled posting and commenting
will begin again at the end of the week.

Have a great week!
Holly...
Lost in L.A. and lovin' it!

  3. Enjoy your time in LA! I hope you have a fabulous time to hold you over until the next time you get there!

    I feel the way you do about LA to Texas, where my dads side of the family is.

    And I think that the Diary of the Wimpy Kid just might hold them over!

  8. I always miss CA this time of year, when the snow is looming! (NoCal girl here) The new Diary of a Wimpy Kid is high on my 9 year olds must read list right now and I make sweet potato pancakes with vanilla maple syrup - to die for! Hope you have a great trip!

  10. I can't say that I feel the same way, but I wasn't born and raised there. Of course, I also don't understand why my mom misses New Jersey...

  16. Holly, have a wonderful visit! I love the pictures. I hope Joe takes what's behind door #2. Congrats on the awards, btw. Holly and Charisse gave me the great idea of putting them into a slide.com slideshow to save space. Thought you might enjoy that little tip-er-oo, since you're awards are stackin' up! Love ya, Jenn

  17. I just went to LA for the first time back in August to meet a new co-worker. She is from Long Beach. I had the BEST TIME, loved LA and guess what-we went to Shoreline Village, I got the cutest purses and wedges at one of the shops for dirt cheap! And we ate at that restaurant on the Marina. SO FUN! Have a great time!

  22. I think L.A is best when you explore the smaller cities and little treasures. Their are so many great cities surrounding L.A....that you will not even feel like you are in L.A. I love those little places...of course I love downtown L.A and the history and the Old Hollywood stuff. I learned a lot about those things when I was a wedding planner and had the opportunity to do some amazing things in some historical locales.

    Holly

    P.S. I did not take the golf ball photo, but it is cool, eh?

  23. Just letting you know I stopped by and love your blog - & also joined the wedding blog as I'm 33 and NEVER been married! I'm hoping that blog and information will come in handy some day....ya know - soon after hell freezes over! ;-)

    PS - CA is on my bucket list to visit... LA, Hollywood, whatever - just wanna see CA

  27. We'll be in withdrawl while you're gone, but have a fantastic time!

    I heard the Wimpy Kid author on NPR today, sounds interesting (though my kids aren't old enough to read yet and I haven't read them).

    And I'm dying over here waiting on that pumpkin pancake recipe...a few times I've just put in some canned pumpkin & cinnamon, but somehow I'm sure that won't be anything like whatever you have in store!

  28. Ah you are making me homesick! My mom still lives in Long Beach, MIL lives in Cerritos! I remember being pregnant, walking around Shoreline Villae with my mom and going into labor!
    Hm, I think I'm going to have to scrap about this! Hope you had a great vacation!

Thanks for stopping by! I read and appreciate all of your sweet words and the time you have spent on my blog. I try hard to respond to comments and visit your blogs... eventually, but I will be honest life is pretty crazy right now!

Thanks for swinging by my place. See ya soon!
