We had such a great time with Erika and Timmy this weekend!

We took them to Philippe’s in Downtown LA. If you haven’t been yet, you really should. It’s one of those old Hollywood joints, where coffee is still 9 cents a cup! They are best known for inventing the original French Dip sandwich!

In typical Kelley fashion, I didn’t order the French Dip…. I got the cheese sandwich!

It was thick cheddar cheese on a crusty roll. Yes please!

Erika and I both got Pickles… of course.

After we ate, we headed down to the Home Depot Center to catch a LA Galaxy game!
JR and Ashley met us down there too!! It was a great game.

The boys (JR, Irving, Timmy):

I spent most of the game trying to get a good picture of Landon Donovan. haha

Because of our amazing seats, we were just a few rows down from where David Beckham was sitting! He had a private box. Yes, we saw him. Yes, there are pictures to prove it. But my camera died, and I’m going to have to bribe Erika to give them to me. 🙂

It was a great weekend. One of those weekends that feels like 5 days long. It was great. Erika and Timmy are moving out to LA soon and we are SO excited they will be our neighbors!!

 

Lots to catch up on! May 15, 2010

Doesn’t that look AMAZING? Whoever thought of that is seriously genius.

And I love the card.
That is love for SURE!

This week, we were so excited to have our friends Erika and Timmy in town!
They will be moving out here soon and are here trying to find the perfect apartment!

We baked them some chocolate chip cookies!

Somebody’s hand was caught stealing one, fresh out of the oven!

I am in love with bright flowers. How cute are these!

And we stopped for lunch at Henry’s Tacos! It’s this little hole-in-the-wall taco stand that everyone raves about.

The menu was simple, but awesome.

I was expecting cheap, greasy Mexican food, but it was surprisingly good! It was fresh, light and filling. We will definitely be going back to that place!

And today is my parent’s 28th wedding anniversary!
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, MOM AND DAD!!

Pre-Christmas Presents! December 14, 2009

Wow, I came home to find a whole bunch of good mail today! A whole bunch of great christmas cards (thanks for thinking of us, friends!) We also got an early Christmas Present from Jake and Janie (hi guys!) but Irving wouldn’t let me open them til Christmas! But I did grab the cute Ornament they sent and put it promptly on the tree!! It combines my three favorite things: Cupcakes, Christmas and Ornament. 🙂 

And then Erika sent us a HUGE box of homemade Christmas cookies!!! THANK YOU!!!!! Not only were they gorgeously wrapped, but they tasted ah-mazing. Look how pretty they look!


The note read: One great way of spreading cheer, is singing loud for all to hear. (or eating cookies!)


There were candy cane shaped almond cookies, chocolate cookies, sugar cookies and this amazing one:

I mean, how awesome is that combination! We quickly ate one of everything before dinner!

Irving was caught going back for seconds!

 

Thanks for the awesome christmas treats! We love them… and have to resist eating one everytime we walk past them! YUM YUM!

I was only in North Carolina for a quick 48 hours, but it was still so fun to catch up and hang out and chat too. We had a few more adventures that included a stop in Dunkin Donuts! MMmm Had to have my DD Fix!

We also got shakes at Chick Filet (OMG Ice Cream HEAVEN!)

We had an awesome lunch in downtown Raleigh at The Mellow Mushroom! I had an awesome Avocado Melt!

And of course, we spent plenty of time hanging out with the kids dogs.


Thanks for an AWESOME weekend Erika!!!!!

We also ventured off to Duke University’s Campus. It was GORGEOUS!!! We loved it! We just walked around and imagined what it must be like to go to school there. It looked like a movie set. A Hogwartz perhaps? So unreal. 

 

Check out these awesome rocking chairs… perfect for studying! They looked so comfy!

I LOOVED the leaves! Look how orange and Crunchy!

A Mini Photoshoot with Timmy and Erika!

Reese is going to apply to Duke when she’s out of High School.

Check out these Benches!!!!

In my next life, I’m totally going to Duke. So awesome!!

I went to North Carolina this weekend to visit my friend Erika and her husband Timmy. It was so great seeing them and their family. Even though I only see Erika once or twice a year, it’s always like no time at all has passed when we’re together. She just cracks me up. Thanks for a great weekend!!

I was only there for 48 hours, so we made the most of our time there. It was an awesome balance of conversation,exploring and enjoying the east coast fall weather. 

On Saturday, we went to the North Carolina Zoo!

 

Lions!

Zebras!
Gorillas!
Polar Bear! (I love his reflection in the water!
Bald Eagle. It was actually pretty cool to see one this close. I felt so American!

The Sea Otters…. so sleepy!
How awesome is this fall scenery?
 

I’ve waited my whole life to see a Venus Flytrap!!!!

Bobcat!

These Orange Pine Needles remind me of building forts at home!

A Polar Bear? Poor Guy. He was totally out of place here. I kinda felt bad. He looked so sad and lonely. And for the record, mud is NOT the same as snow. He needs a bath!


 


Long lost friends! Together at last!

A Lion!

Gorilla… an ANGRY gorilla!

Where are the Elephants?

There they are!
