LA Galaxy with J&J May 9, 2011

Saturday night, we took Jake and Janie to an LA Galaxy game (sort of a late Christmas gift!) We got to the stadium really early and had fun walking around before the action started.

Instead of watching the game from our seats, we had reservations at the Stadium Club!

They had a great buffet and the food was amazing. Everything was fresh and tasted homemade.

Our seats were pretty good too. A neat perspective on the game.

Irving loved it. He’s a huge soccer fan, remember?

Rumor has it that Leonardo DiCaprio was at the game too. They showed him on the big monitor, so I whipped my binoculars out (not kidding) and tried to find him, but I guess he was hiding.

The game ended at 1-1.

Hi David Beckham, you looked dapper at the Royal Wedding!

In other news from the weekend, we saw Jay Leno on Saturday at Menchies! He pulled up in an old Bentley and parked right next to me!

He said hi, got his ice cream and left. Just a typical Saturday living in LA. We were with Erika and Timmy and Jake and Janie too, it was fun to see a celeb so up close and personal.

Yesterday, we had brunch at Porto’s in Burbank (so good!) We sat outside and dined al fresco. It was so relaxing and nice.

Yesterday, we both felt a little blah. Just not motivated, a little sluggish and sad. Clearly, we were lacking endorphins. So we laced up our sneakers, gave ourselves a pep talk, and headed out for a four mile walk. Muuuuuch better. The fresh air and exercise were just what we needed to end a great weekend on a high note.

Happy Monday!

By popular demand, here’s some more our pictures from when we had Red Carpet Access during the 2005 Oscars! We were just in the right place at the right time and scored media tickets to the arrivals line. (And then we got to watch the show from the Press Room). It was my 10 minutes of (standing next to the) fame, so enjoy!

When Irving and I moved out to Los Angeles, we had no jobs, no cars and no plan. We had a rented minivan full of stuff and one-room studio apartment that was steps away from Hollywood Blvd. Our address was located in ‘Hollywood, California’. My relatives back in Boston just thought that was the coolest thing in the world. We had three un-employed months of Southern California Bliss. We were sleeping on a futon mattress, sipping mimosas at noon, and soaking in the glitz of Hollywood.

Just a few short weeks after moving out here, we got invited to attend the 2005 Oscars — on the RED CARPET! We couldn’t believe how lucky we were. We got all glammed up and waited to mingle with the stars!

Welcome to Hollywood, Kelley and Irving!

I have lots more pics of celebs from that day. Let me know if you’re interested and I can roll them out little by little.

If you could meet one celebrity, who would it be? I used to want to meet Prince William.
