Los Angeles Birthday

For my 24th birthday (also my golden birthday), Kyle surprised me with tickets to visit my best friend, Emma and her boyfriend, in Los Angeles. I was thrilled! I love LA and Emma is such a fabulous host. It is always fun to visit her and experience things that you would never find in the prairies of South Dakota.

I had a wish list of things that I wanted to do and see while there—

First, I am obsessed with Cupcakes. I love Sprinkles Cupcakes, the first Cupcake Bakery in the United States, and it started in LA.

Second, I wanted to see a celebrity. I didn’t think this would be too hard, since the Oscar’s were in town the same weekend. We enjoyed watching the Oscar's from Emma's apartment which was less than 5 miles away from the location the Oscar's took place. However, on Saturday night, we went to the Comedy Store in Hollywood. Daniel Tosh, from Comedy Central's: Tosh.0; made a surprise stop and it made our night complete. It was so much fun to laugh at these comedians jokes. 

Third, I wanted to go to the beach and enjoy being a California girl for a weekend. We went to Venice Beach on Sunday. It was a beautiful day and we saw performers, artists, dancers and muscle men. I also got to check "Run along the beach" off my Bucket List.
