LA Confidential (See Jane Weekend)

I journeyed from San Francisco to Los Angeles this past weekend to visit my beloved brother and sister-in-law.  As a regular visitor to LA (their couch gets a lot of action from me), I pride myself on sort of knowing my way around the city.  From shopping on 3rd street to drinks in West Hollywood to watching Bravo on the couch, every moment was filled.  The weekend was filled with laughs, sarcastic jabs, and calorie-laden foods.  In other words, it was perfection.

 cookie bar from Magnolia Bakery (didn't know there was an LA location!)
hanging with my neph-cat, Gary (he says hey)

last meal of the weekend (go big or go home)
I even met a favorite blogger of mine, Carrie from This Free Bird, at the Hungry Cat in Hollywood.  Her and le Chef were real gems and we had a great time bonding over seafood and salads!  When I return to LA, I will definitely be meeting up with her again, especially since I'm a bonehead and forgot my camera so I didn't get any pictures of our rendezvous.  Next time, Carrie!
