Park You

Tuesday, November 19, 2013 , , , , 0

Alex:  Parking enforcement does not mess around out here. In Wisconsin you could get away with a lot more! Today I went to Runyon to hike. It has such a different vibe than Temescal. Can’t complain though, I’m happy hiking anywhere. Whenever I’m this cheesy, I actually crave cheese. Is that weird? Anyway, I loved how many dogs were at Runyon. I felt like I was walking up a mountain, surrounded by puppies and a ...

Spin Cycle aka In The Hoop

Alex:  It's really therapeutic to write down what happened, what you’re thinking or what you're feeling when something is bothering you. Then reread it. Then reread it out loud. Then listen to what you’re saying. You can learn a lot about yourself and your thinking habits when you do this. I have a tendency to over think. Mainly the little things. So now when something or someone is bothering me, I do this exercise before ...

Growing Up Sucks

Alex:  It’s official. I’m almost a grandma. My hair is falling out, I get tired by 10pm and when I get home, the first thing I do, is take my clothes off and change into sweats. The worst part is when I have a couple of drinks I’m hungover for like two days! WHAT IS GOING ON!? Not to mention the bills on bills on bills. They never stop. Cell phone, car insurance, gas, electricity, ...

Running errands in LA… Blows!

Wednesday, October 23, 2013 , , , , 0

Alex:  One thing I really miss about Wisconsin is how easy it was to run errands. I could get a lot accomplished in one day. Or should I say one hour! Out here in LA running errands takes an entire day. Hey that rhymed, sorta. Anyway, yesterday I had a few things I needed from CVS, a check to deposit and my tank was on E. You know how long that took me? 3 hours! ...

Caught a Baditude?

Alex:  I just had a run in with Cruella De Vil’s sister. The Palisades is busy this morning. I start work at 8am and it just so happens to be the same time school starts. The streets are flooded with cars, kids, and parents. As I approach my building, someone is blocking the entrance of my parking structure. Now the cars behind me have to wait too and let me tell you the one directly ...

I’m obsessed with… Swedish Dream Sea Salt Soap

Nik:  You know how good your skin is after swimming in the ocean? This soap has all the benefits of a Pacific dip without the sand between your toes.
Alex:  Speaking of ocean, let’s go to the beach soon!
Nik:  It’s too cold.
Alex:  Are you kidding me? It’s 70 degrees out!
Nik:  It’s 69.  And when you’ve been in LA as long as I have, 69 is not beach weather.
Alex:  I’m always down to get wet when it’s 69.
Nik:  Ew. No.
