LA Weekend

PART 1Hubby & I went to LA last weekend with all the cool kids to celebrate Himbo's birthday, we all stayed at The Beverly Hilton.

The Bev. Hilton (that's what we call it, cause we're "cool" like that) was hosting the press junket for "He's just not that into you" we did see a couple of celebrities and even a cast member from the movie! Himbo's suite was on the same floor as the make-up room, we were acting like groupies.

Himbo's birthday extravaganza. The plan was to party in "We Ho" (West Hollywood for all you squares out there) and in case you are not familiar, West Hollywood is the Gay Capital of California. We had a few drinks in Himbo's suite then headed out for the night.

Before we all piled into the elevator, we made friends with a few old timers who knew how to party! They came off the elevator loud, drunk and carrying bottles of booze... my kind of people!

We made it over to the club and met up with more cool kids.

Did I mention retired blog-ebritys attended this major event as well?
MzTapz graced us with her presence.

We made new friends...

Those new friends really showed their hospitality and put on a little show for us...

We met pretty classy ladies, we swapped make-up tips and did each other's hair in the restroom...
We danced, or at least attempted to move around while trying not to spill our drinks...

We rested before we hit the next club...

(My bitches)
(he's my bitch too...Happy Birthday Himbo)

There were WAYyyy more pictures but it's starting to feel like I'm one of those people who makes you sit through a million photo albums when you come over to visit me!
Moving right along now...


PART 2

The next day we all headed out to Bossa Nova for lunch.I think everyone was still drunk...

No... scratch that... I know everyone was still drunk

This could be incriminating evidence, or not. maybe she found it?

After lunch we just cruised around the city

We acted like paparazzi at the Ivy

We did some window shopping on Rodeo Drive

We people watched and brushed up on our fashion skills to blend in with those hip LA peeps!

We seen Tyrese getting his Bentley's tire changed... but I wasn't fast enough with the camera.
PART 3
After a long day of sight seeing we head back to the OC, we parted ways with everyone then went out to dinner and celebrated our lovely anniversary
Aww... Happy Anniversary my love!
Yay for weekend getaways!

Nice Party. I am a member of OC Poetry Hosts. If you interested get at me about it. They placed LBC along with OC but it's really LA County. Oh, well.

Just remember if you drink enough, you might find that a really really good looking chick really does understand what it means to be a man. Really understands but I digress. (Smile)

Desert Rat said...

Please take off that crazy follower ticker whatever it's called thing...I look like a crazy stalker sister but it's really because your blog is on my favorites so through your blog I go to my blog and everyone else's blog because other wise I don't know how to get to my blog so see a little less stalker sister on my part! ;-)
