|and some Friday; Me, Cory, Dennis road tripping home. |
SO MUCH DRIVING IN TWO DAYS TIME.
CA-> Vegas// not bad;
Vegas -> UT, UT-> Vegas in two days... yeah I was sick of being in a fart box.
Monday! The week begins!
I was really excited to get on the road and show Dennis Orange County, California! By excited I mean SO FREAKING EXCITED THAT I COULD NOT CONTAIN MYSELF! I forget now that my windows are no longer tinted, so drivers around me got a nice view of my dance party on the way home. HAHA. I don't even care. I enjoyed myself, it was fun and I was going home! We got home on Monday, took care of some business (Dennis's oil needed to be changed) and then went to the gym! I missed my gym buddy! :) Good to have him back! I then took him to Don Gustavos! In my opinion the best mexican in the MV. Check off for day one! Full bellies are always a good sign.

What a wonderful day that was. Dennis went up to LA and I was able to go see my Grandma Hannah and Uncle Bruce! I brought my grandma lunch and we were able to talk for some time before the doctors took her back to physical therapy. I then went over and visited with Uncle Bruce for a couple hours. He is the most amazing man. I admire him so much. He is so loving and service oriented. I seriously wonder how he is still single! I can't wait to see who you end up with eventually Uncle Bruce! :) After I got home from visiting with them, I did some homework and headed to temple prep! I absolutely love the Herscherrs and their flexibility to work with me so I can be ready to enter into the Holy Temple. I can not wait! When I got home from that, my Dad made Dennis a Mitchell B meal. After dinner, I took Dennis to Altisima Park to watch the Disneyland Fireworks, but we couldn't end up seeing them that night. It was ok because the view was absolutely gorgeous and we were able to talk! We watched some netflix, Leslie G and Christine D came over and met Dennis and then we all went to bed. It was a long day!
|you can't see the size of the waves, but they were ginormous.|
After the beach, we came home, cleaned up and went to the Angels game! We were able to take the train which was such a cool experience! We had both never taken that train before and boy was it so much better (and cheaper) than driving!!
|we were really excited!|
We got tickets from one of my mom's hookups. They were NOSE. BLEEDS. Straight-up we were three rows from the last row. We moved up. two reasons: there were sets closer & Jeff and his buddies all had tickets by us and we didn't really want to sit by them. It was a great game! Angels whooped the Marlin's tooshies!
|Even though we were in the nosebleeds, we still had a pretty great view.|

Bagels and Brew first timer!! I have grown up on this place and it is amazing! Seriously, if you haven't been, there are three local locations. GO ASAP. It's not 5 star or anything, but boy will it fill your tummy up. Bagel sandwiches are my personal favorite. Dennis enjoyed this place so much he wanted to go back! :) WIN!

The club was amazing, as always. Our waiter was awesome and he knew my dad which made everything so much better. He treated us like royalty. We both got steak and shared veggies and cheesecake. It was a great night! :)

Kind of a spontaneous day! Hurricane Marie still wasn't allowing us to enjoy the beach so plans were changed. We started the morning off at Bowl of Heaven and I thought it was delicious, but Dennis just thought it was like "froyo in the morning!" Haha! I got a kick out of that.
(Side note: All week I was telling Dennis how safe it is around town and how we can leave our stuff right by the tree at the lake and it will be fine. Never once in my life has anyone taken it from the tree in all the times I've rented boats at the lake. This would be the time someone takes my stuff right? Right. We got out the boat dock and walked over to where our stuff was...... but nothing was there. GREAAAAAT. Fortunately, some kind soul had thought that we had forgotten it there and turned it in. Bless them. But really, you could have just left it there.)
So, after the lake we decided to head up to Long Beach to get Roscoe's House of Chicken n Waffles. I was excited but a little weirded out because of the combination. IT WAS SO GOOD THOUGH. FOR REAL. Black people know what's up. I didn't think the combination would be exciting, but man, it was delicious! Our waitress was the typical sassy black woman and our food came out very quick! I enjoyed my meal! I think Dennis enjoyed his more than I did because he was mixing all kids of stuff... hot sauce on pancakes- all I'm gonna say. So we got done there and realized Jeffrey's game was in Long Beach also and didn't want to waste the gas going home and coming back out again so we had to find something to do with our time. We ended up at the Queen Mary and turned back once we saw the ticket prices. Our final destination was the Aquarium of the Pacific!!! Can I tell you how much I LOVE aquariums? Like a lot. A LOT. I love looking at all of the fish and sharks. We were able to pet some sharks and rays too. It was awesome!

The only day you can drive into LA and make it there in under 2 hours. YES. On a Saturday. Morning.... or noon, like what we ended up doing. HAHA. Pretty much snuggling was more comfortable than moving and getting ready so we snuggled way past the time we had originally planned on leaving. Breakfast was pushed back and everything evened up working out!

After dinner we headed up to Anaheim to meet up with Dennis's brother, Kenny and his girl friend, Erin. They were at the Angels game and were going to grab desert with us after. We ended up waiting an hour in the hotel lobby for them because they had to drop people off and take people places, but it was great because I got a mini nap in. We were out until about 12:30 and came home and Netflixed until 3am. Katie H had called me earlier that night asking to crash at my place and I told her of course. She didn't show up until 5 am!!!! So I didn't get to bed until 5 am... woo that was fun! I slept in until 11. Thanks Dennis for just waiting around for me! Haha, sorry I slept so long!
