Our Little Getaway...

My husband surprised me and said we would drive over to Hollywood for a day.  We were already in Cali, which I will tell more of that later.  I was so excited.  Karen will vouch for this as I kept talking about it when I was by her place this past spring..
I am telling you, I was giddy with excitement when I saw this sign.

But a little too close for comfort for my taste.

We drove by Capitol records...
and Paramount Pictures....
LOOK, can you believe little ole Ceekay got to see this?  and let me tell you, it is not EASY to get a picture of it.  As you get closer you go further into the valley and the buildings obscure it.  On the freeway, you are going too fast....this was the best I could do....but it is so fun to see it in Real!
But what did we really go for?   PINKS!!
We stood in line over an hour...which really is fast.  It was so fun.  Everyone was so friendly and happy to be there.
We met some Badger fans there for the Rose Bowl.  Hi girls if you stop by to visit me!! 
See the Bacon Chili Cheese Dog?  that was my husband's choice!
But I gotta tell you, the fries are the BEST!
Hubby took this pic for all you PINK girls!
Me standing by the wall of fame.  There is good ole Guy, and no, Rose, Kevin Bacon was not there
:(....( I really like Kevin Bacon)
another place we can check off the Bucket list.  And for your info, a lot of them involve FOOD!

It's nice to see the HOLLYWOOD sign from a differnt point of view...great picture! I have often thought of another trip to California where I can see some of the more popular sights, I went alone when I was in my 20's and pretty much lived on the beach!!

What fun you had. And you look beautiful.

XO,
Jane

The food looks delicious! I've been dieting, so something that appetizing just whets my whistle fast. I love your Keep Calm & Write A Blog sign in your sidebar. Haven't seen that one! Love it! I may have to steal it from you. Do you mind?

Oh how much fun did you have~woohoo! I have always wanted to go to Pinks but am horrible about standing in lines particularly when I am hungry. :)

Connie said...

Sounds like fun! Good pic of Hollywood.

Not to sound out of touch, but what is PINKS supposed to be - just a restaurant?

Love ya,
Constance

Hi Ceekay! Oh, looks like you had a marvelous time! I've been to Hollywood a few times too. I like that kind of food too and I do love some yummy fries.
I love your new header! It IS FANCY! You did good. Now if I can just figure out why some of my pictures are bleeding over into my sidebar. :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)
