I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not the most organized host. Sure, I’ll save you a cat-free pillow case, fluff you a comforter, vacuum the couch, and have Jackie make pumpkin pancakes in the morning…but when it comes to figuring out what to do throughout your stay, I won’t have an entire agenda planned. LA is a wonderful city with a lot of things to do but it’s so widespread that you almost have to choose only 1 or 2 things a day. Typically those activities include food, shopping, or something active like a hike or a yoga class.
When Erin came to town, we didn’t do much of any of those things! I’ve known Erin since first grade, so whenever we’re together, it doesn’t take much to keep us happy and I love that about her. Instead of stressing over where to take her or what to do, we just decided to do whatever would make us happy at the moment, which ended up being the Stanley Kubrik exhibit at the LACMA (probably the closest either of us will get to seeing The Shining since we’re both babies!), climbing walls at Rockcreation, skipping the gym to play card games and eat pastries at Sweet Lady Jane, taking our time shopping/gawking at LA Marathoners at the Promenade, split-and-swapping at the new Burger Lounge, and a few more…[life-changing, totally awesome, wish-i-could-post-photos] unmentionables.
Come back soon, Erin! I promise not to plan anything!
