so i know that everyone thinks our life revolves around food and shopping.
and they're right.
there, i said it. somehow the combination of food and shopping has given us:
joyous nights out,
amazing travel stories,
tons of new friends,
reconnections with family,
and rather full lives.
so, tim's birthday happened mid-transition down here, and we decided to break the mold a bit.
we shopped AFTER we ate.
first stop, a perennial los angeles favorite,
where tim gets his salmon pastrami reuben sandwich,
and we contemplate the hollywood sign
while sitting on the roof barney's in beverley hills,
the greengrass cafe:
now tim's brother may chastise him for the gray that has crept into his hair,
tim's developing this craig meets clooney thing that i kinda adore.
plus, he still puts up with my need to pose with store displays:
and then, a drive cross town to the new location of blackman cruz.
i'll post more on this in a seperate post. but it's beyond my favorite store in america:
the walking the dogs,
then off to a very special dinner.
see, i told tim we were going to a place that served his favorite food in the world.
the man loves ketchup more than anything else in the world food-wise. it's sick.
when we first met, i could almost not get him to put down the bottle.
until i started wearing low-cut things to dinner. but i digress.
it's not the best food in l.a.
but this place may have the most FUN food in l.a.
five types of ketchup. with three types of fries.
i was lost.
he was in heaven.
there is a lot of small food. all ketchup based:
(must admit: chili puppy dogs were amazing.)
it was, as we like, a FUN birthday.
