Walking in L.A. - Blogger Meetup Video Diary


Here is a video I've compiled of my weekend in L.A. featuring my hubby, a couple friends and a blogger meetup!


featuring "Lights Out" by Santigold

Last weekend the hubs and I took a little trip to Los Angeles for his 26th birthday. We have a couple of friends who live there, and since we live in Phoenix now we thought it would be a pretty easy drive.

It took us about six hours to get there, but we had a nice hotel on Venice Beach. Friday we just went out for some drinks since we got in pretty late. We spent Saturday getting a large Dim Sum breakfast, hitting up the beach, driving around Venice and then taking a trip to Hollywood.

blogger-meetupWe went to a really funny improv show hosted by the Upright Citizens Brigade. Afterward we had breakfast for dinner at 101 Coffee Shop before heading to a club on Hollywood Boulevard. We were hoping to go to an 80s night theme but instead got caught up in a Gothic Alice in Wonderland theme. It was a bit weird to say the least.

Sunday I met up with two lovely bloggers: Jamie from Glam Latte and Mel of Modanista Junkie. We went to the Venice boardwalk and had breakfast and mimosas at Sidewalk Cafe. It was so great to finally meet some bloggers, especially ones as fun and great as Mel and Jamie!

Have you been a part of a blogger meetup?

Happy Mother's Day!

What a great weekend you had!! Those seaslugs - OMG!
i've never been to a blogger meet up but it is my ambition to do it one day!! It looks like so much fun! Is it strange meeting fellow bloggers "in real life" and were people the same as you thought they would be!? (If u get what I mean?!)

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Awww the video isn't working on my crappy laptop. :( Sigh.

You are so lucky to live somewhere where LA is just a simple road trip away. :)

I love blogger meet ups! I flew out to LA two years ago to meet up with one of my first blogging buddies. And then I met another blogging buddy in my own town a year ago. I really don't know what I would do without all my blogging friends (including you)! xoxo

Audrey Allure said...

That sounded like a great weekend! I haven't been to an actually blogger meet up event but I have met a couple of bloggers in NY :) That's hilarious about the gothic Alice in Wonderland although I'm not sure what I'd do if I stumbled in there.

Diego R. Wyatt said...

This looked like so much fun. Funny enough, I have never met up with another blogger, which is weird because I am sure I walk past the all of the time in NYC. I definitely need to make it happen. Hope your Mother's Day was fab and your trip with the hubby too!
