It was so nice to have my mom in town this week. We had a blast at my shower and it was so cool she was able to be there. The rest of the week was filled with a mix of relaxation, touristy things, and putting the baby’s room together.

Sunday night after the shower, we stayed in and cooked sliders on the grill. Delicious!

Monday, was ‘Marathon Monday’! Wish I could have been there to cheer on all the runners! I heard it was super hot! Can’t believe it’s now been TWO years since I ran it!

We decided to go enjoy downtown Los Angeles for the day. We went to the gorgeous Public Library and then to City Hall. You can go to the top of the building and see the amazing views of the city. I had never been!

Mom is afraid of heights, but I think she really liked it.

We saw the Disney Concert Hall, where we took some photos a few weeks back!

We were told to put our ‘visitor’ sticker in an ‘obvious place’. I chose my belly since you can’t miss it!



It was SO hot that all that walking downtown really did me in. I was completely pooped by the end. We spent the rest of the day home after that.

Tuesday, we had a VIP tour of Warner Brothers scheduled…. or so we thought. Apparently I had booked it for the wrong day. Oops, blame the baby brain! But thankfully they let us on anyways. I had been on the WB lot before, but I had never done the official tour.

This was the old exterior set of ER! It is supposed to look like the L-Train in Chicago.

This is the soundstage that ‘Friends’ was filmed in!

They still have the ‘Central Perk’ set assembled in another building.

The famous friends couch!!

I wear sunglasses inside because we were in Hollywood and I have to be cool. Bahaha.

I just realized how coordinated our shirts were! Totally on purpose.



We saw a bunch more sets and got to visit the prop house. If anyone needs a ‘Seal of the President’, take your pick!

I believe after the tour, we went home to take an afternoon nap, but before sunset, we headed out again to snap some photos of the Hollywood Sign.




Hi Daddy! Can you believe our baby will be born in Los Angeles? So surreal we live here!

I have some more pictures from this little photoshoot, but I’ll save them for my weekly update. =) Oh, the suspense!

After this, we made a simple ‘Make-Your-Own-Tacos’ meal and then headed over to see a taping of the Jimmy Kimmel Show. PS. This was the first time my mom had ever had guacamole! What?!

The last day of my mom’s visit was all about baby. We had an OB appointment first. Baby is expected to be around 7lbs, 9oz! We’ll see if that’s accurate! Heartbeat is still strong and baby is still head down. YAY!

That night, we had our maternity tour at the hospital. It was awesome. I’ll fill you in on that in my weekly update post as well.


What a week! Had a blast! And now I need another nap. ha!

    Those sliders look fabulous. I need to make sliders again.

    I haven’t seen any of the places you posted about! This is sad considering I’ve lived in So. California for my entire life. I am horrible!

    Guacamole? Did she love it? I can’t imagine life without it!

      It’s so true. I never venture out to do touristy things unless people come to visit. I have to get out more, there is SO much to do in LA! That’s why I love this town!
