On Saturday, Kelsey (AKA BFFFFFF&F) drove up from San Diego to see me! We ate an early (and long) lunch in downtown Pasadena at a place called Slaters 50/50. Their burger patty was made from 50% ground beef and 50% ground bacon. Yes. You read that right.
Afterwards we decided to visit Griffith Park Observatory and try to get a good view of the Hollywood sign. We only got lost once. Or twice. Or three times. I don't remember. Driving in LA is hard. We finally got there and it was beautiful.
After that we headed to the Chinese Theater and Hollywood Walk of Fame. That picture was actually taken when I was there on Thursday before Kimmel. We decided to try to get to Rodeo drive and walk around for a bit, but I had to be back in Pasadena earlier than expected so our day was cut short. We ended up heading to my hotel and having a drink at the bar before Kelsey drove home to San Diego.
Saturday night we had a nice dinner and then went to the Miss California USA preliminary pageant (the real reason for our entire trip to LA), and on Sunday afternoon we went to the final competition. Sorry, all I had was my cell phone.
Monday we had a few hours to kill, so we drove around Santa Monica and Beverly Hills. Again, I was in awe. It's so beautiful!
I really didn't want to leave and wish we'd had a few more WEEKS to explore. I'm so glad I got to go, it really was an amazing weekend.
