    Disneyland Parade

    Disneyland Parade Disneyland! Best place to take a picture with Sleeping Beauty’s Castle – the right side…you’ll get the water, the whole castle and very little foot traffic interruption (plus, no one in the background). Awesome spot. For watching the Parade…watch between the Castle and the Matterhorn Bobsleds – you can only sit on the Castle side (you can’t sit along the fence opposite) which means that all the characters will look directly at you…it’s so much fun. Sit on the ground right up until…

    Fashion & Fabric District – Downtown LA

    Buying fabric in Canada can be limiting at times. Very few stores and very few different products. When Bryce and I decided we’d take a small vacation in October I wanted to visit either New York City or Los Angeles (yes, both have fashion/fabric districts). Together we decided on LA – neither one of us had ever been there before, the flights from Edmonton were 3 hours (not like the red-eyes we’d be taking to New York City), and well, the weather was beautiful. Below…

    CalTech…I’m a nerd!

    CalTech Some people like to visit stadiums in cities they visit, museums or even local landmarks. Me, I live to visit university campuses – I’m a nerd, I know. I was 12 when my dad took me and my brother to Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana. He had a coaches football conference and I got to wander the university (taking pictures on a very old camera)…I felt inspired, like I was a part of a secret or inner world. When it came time to…

    Los Angeles Shopping…The Grove & Rodeo Drive

    The Grove Where to shop in Los Angeles?…The Grove!  My mom visited LA a few years ago and raved about The Grove, plus, I think TMZ films there from time to time. Lots of places to shop and lots of places to eat. Gossip is a pretty big thing in LA, as well as in a 15 year olds life, but I’m not 15, so LA it is! The television show Extra brings a lot of celebrity gossip, entertainment news and celebrity photos right into…

    Food Truck Wonderland

    Edmonton has maybe a handful of food trucks – nothing too exciting. Popular shows, such as Eat St. and The Great Food Truck Race have made the mobile kitchen quite an intriguing dining experience. So, being in LA we had to buckle and eat off the street!  This location?  The Foothills in Sunland (metro Los Angeles) California. The Green Truck above – all organic and lots of vegan options. We arrived at 4:30 and most trucks opened around 5 – the best part, we got…
