[Live. Love. Dance.]


After many years of wanting to go to a taping of the ELLEN show, I finally just gave in and requested tickets and by golly...I GOT FOUR TICKETS! I am so glad I was able to find three great people to go with and we had a fun day full of laughing and dancing! Heidi Jo was willing to take a break from Mexico (and as an added bonus, she came up a couple days early and we got to spend some time together!), and my two friends from G7, Jason & Jonathan joined in on the fun too. We had amazing aisle seats and could be spotted randomly throughout the show.

Jonathan is in green. Heidi is next to him.
Jason is in black. I am next to him (in purple).
(guys are easier to spot in the crowd, for some odd reason!)

Just dancing with Ellen (spot me & Heidi)

Best shot! (Heidi & Jonathan)

The guests were Steve Harvey, Rachel Maddow, Matt Kemp, and musical guest Robyn. We walked away with Robyn's new CD, a Groupon giftcard, and some great memories!

[Love. Peace. Guacamole.]

Southern California Avocado Festival.
Saw an advertisement on Thursday.
Invited via text Friday.
Attended Saturday.

There were tons of fun things look at, people to watch, sunshine and sand to enjoy, and avocado-y food to try. I ate the BLT with Guacamole, Claire tried the BBQ beef with Guacamole, and Justine the taquitos...with Guacamole, of course! After walking down the shore line in Carpenteria and exploring the tide pools, we dared to try the famous avocado ice cream. It was interesting, but I still prefer a good 'ol strawberry cone.

Good friends. Good food. Good day.

[oh shoot]

I'm glad she's okay with me chasing her around with a camera in-hand. :)
