Our trip to LA

This last Monday and Tuesday, Dana and I took a little trip to LA. Dana has friends from Michigan who were on their way to Hawaii to celebrate their 10 year wedding anniversary. They decided to break up their trip a little and make a pit stop in Los Angeles, so that we could meet up with them for a day. Since we never make it to the area, we decided to fit in as much as we could in the two days that we were there. We left Monday morning and went to the fashion district so that I could shop for fabrics. I was a little disappointed that I didn't find anything that I liked, but was happy that Dana decided to join me in the adventure and not just drop me off like we planned. The key to keeping him content was to buy him a bacon wrapped hot dog at the Mexican stand and allow him to do whatever you wanted on his iPhone while I looked around. Surprisingly, he was very supportive and didn't complain at all. As soon as I was done with my business, I returned the favor to Dana by joining him in meeting one of his clients whose office is in LA. We visited for a little over an hour about websites, music, and business in general. Then the fun began. We drove over to my college friend, Dana's place. She lives with her boyfriend Edward in a cute apartment in Marine del Ray. We all went out and had some amazing sushi, picked up some wine, and then spent the rest of the night listening to music, talking, and drinking at the apartment. It had been a while since we've all been together, so we ended up staying up really late, we just didn't want it to end. In the morning, we left them and went to pick up Marty and Monica (the couple who were on their way to Hawaii) and spent the day sightseeing, eating, and hanging out. It was nice to catch up with them and see how happy they are at 10 years of marriage. They gave us a few pointers for our future marriage.  Check out our pics below: (1) The group--look close between Monica and I and you will see the Hollywood sign.
