This weekend was great. The weather has been so wonderful, it was the perfect weekend to be outdoors.
The bf and I started by surprising my roommate Stefana at work (Red Robin) for lunch. She's one of those people that it's great to surprise because she is such a happy energetic person. She was so excited.
I, of course, got my standard BBQ chicken wrap. Yum. Just looking at this photo makes me hungry
(I had to take a photo of the "No Jogging" sign because I don't think I've ever seen that before in my life. It made me laugh)
I've lived in the Long Beach area my whole life and I had never been, or even knew it existed but my boyfriend suggested it and so we went. It was so nice. Such a peaceful serene setting for an incredibly beautiful day.
We did the 1/4 mile trail and still wanted more so we also did the 1 mile trail also. The park is full of wildlife. We saw squirrels, lizards, ducks, and my favorite of the day, turtles. There were some teenie tiny ones and I was squealing with excitement. I asked Sam if he was embarrassed, he, of course, said no but he probably was. Haha.
We finished up and headed to the grocery store because we were planning on grilling out and having some friends over later that night. I love having an excuse to turn on my outside lights and use the beer pong table. It was great catching up with some old friends.
A late Saturday night of course leads to an early In-N-Out Burger run Sunday morning. Mmm, another photo that makes me hungry.
Sunday night my mom and I surprised my bf my visiting him at work. She jokingly said to me "Our waiter is cute, you should leave him your number" so I did! Haha. His boss said to him after we left "You sure perked up. All it takes is a couple girls, huh? I'm telling your girlfriend!". He, of course, responded with "That WAS my girlfriend! And her mom!" Haha.
Such a wonderful weekend. :)
Last night Sam and I finally got around to watching the movie "Drive". He had been telling me I needed to see it for awhile. As nice as it was to stare at Ryan Gosling for two hours, I didn't really care for the movie. Just so much blood and violence and evil. I'm one of those people who likes to feel better after watching a movie so, once it was over I made him watch "Peter Pan" with me. Haha. Not the cartoon but the 2003 live action "Peter Pan". I'm sure he hated it but it made me feel better about the world.
Tonight I'm gong to my favorite monthly comedy show, put on by my friend Ari Shaffir. He puts on a monthly storyteller show at the Improv and my friend Stefana and I are sure to never miss it. He keeps the price super low (only five bucks!) and never fails to have a GREAT lineup (He's had Joe Rogan, Bill Burr, John Caparulo, Joey Diaz, Ralphie May, and Steve Rannazzisi, just to name a few). Tonight he's having one of my very favorites Bobby Lee and the topic is "Shame". I'm so excited! If you're in the LA area tonight, I definitely recommend this show. It never disappoints.
