Los Angeles and the Grove

I had the chance to hang out in Los Angeles last week ~ see...I was born and raised in lala land and I miss everything but the traffic!
It's crazy how I took L.A. for when I drive up from SD I make sure I go visit one of my favorite locations and take in a great meal! Don't get me wrong...I love San Diego and I love that I pretty much only wear flip flops nowadays...but I miss knowing where I am at all times ~ I'm constantly getting lost in SD!! In L.A. I know what freeway exit I need ten miles before I get to it...whereas now I'm pretty much glued to a Thomas Guide or my Google map!
I made my way over to The Grove for lunch and a little photo action ~ I just love the Farmer's Market. It's a great place to just hang out and enjoy life! So many people, tons of great food, plus all the window shopping makes me happy!!
While dining on my yummy chicken salad sandwich, I popped off a shot of my favorite ice cream sign...just because it's ice cream! After lunch, I followed my heart into the french I love cheese!!! Ohh!!! As I walked through the mall I passed J. Crew and noticed that their window display had a wedding dress in it! So exciting ~ they do brides now!!! Now, one of my favorite things to do is rest my weary feet on the trolley and people watch ~ but I was so busy looking around and enjoying that I didn't take any I grabbed a shot of the trolley sign in front of the Cheesecake Factory for you! Can't wait to head back up!
