And a few weeks later...

Sorry! I meant to come back to post some photos, but I got distracted. With good food, finding my way around, getting stuck in crazy traffic, and people watching. Let's not forget meeting up with Stacy and Lisa for lunch. And the beach. I hope you'll forgive me.

Our stuff is finally coming this week, so woohoo for being able to sleep in my own bed and no longer camping out in the house. I'll be happily unpacking. And thank you all for the lovely encouraging words!

First thing to do in LA? Eat at In-N-Out.
Or find a good boba restaurant.
Maybe even hunt down a Beard Papa for creme puffs.
Uh, yeah, I had one too. Just one though. I was good.
Then, we started our weekly search for the best dim sum in LA (this was 888 Seafood Restaurant, the search continues.) Yes, there they are again, my well-trained Chinese kids who can use chopsticks. Never mind they are crossing their chopsticks. Bad form!
A dim sum bill. Each of those stamps is a dish, it all gets added up in the end.
For Easter dinner,  we found a nice banh mi joint. (Banh Mi = Vietnamese sandwiches, the most amazing sammies, ever!)
And because that was not enough food for us, we went to a Chinese candy store. Amazing for kids and slightly older people too.
Yes, we did something other than eat! Really. We went to Venice beach.
And my kids, who will brave any water temps because they love water. But they can't swim that well. Go figure.
This photo is for Kim. I found a spot to take closer photos of the Hollywood sign. So next time you are visiting, that's where we'll go!

Before I go direct the movers, Creating Keepsakes is celebrating National Scrapbooking Day for the entire week with some great giveaways. I have a little challenge there today, and the giveaway is a full year's subscription to CK mag. Get more info here.

Also, at the Lily Bee blog, we are doing a full week of Mother's Day celebration. Because really, as a mom, I think we deserve it! Which reminds me I should also direct the purchasing of a Mother's Day present. For me!

You've been busy! Finding the good places to eat may take a while now that you've gone urban...pace yourself! :)

Good luck with the unpacking...and subsequent toting to donation drop off!

Geez, do I have to lose 50 lbs. before I come out and visit you? Too many good places to eat there, it seems. Glad you're having fun exploring! xo
