Los Angeles Vacation Day 1....
Last weekend I drove out to LA to see Claudia. The night I got there Friday, we went out to dinner by her house and caught up. Then Saturday... the adventure began!! We woke up early and went to yoga. The yoga studio was so beautiful and the teachers energy reminded me why I love yoga so much. However.... the best part was my celebrity sighting outside of the studio.... who was it?? wait for it.... Jacqueline's husband from 'The Real Housewives of NJ'. I feel slightly pathetic for recognizing this guy but am a true fan! After yoga and coffee... We rented beach cruisers and rode from VENICE to HERMOSA!.. yes... for those of you who are unaware.. that is about a 40 mile bike ride.

This is Venice Beach or "Muscle Beach" .. My dad is a power lifter, and use to have competitions here. It was nostalgic being here and thinking of my Dad working out in this gym.


The view from my bike... Yes, I had a low rider with a leopard print seat. I guess since my name is "Misty" the guy at the bike shop assumed I would want a bad ass porn star looking bike??


Me riding... Yes I almost crashed taking a picture of myself.. ha ha ha ha


Me and Claudia .. about half way to Hermosa.....


And Finally!! 20 Miles later.... we met Liz in Hermosa!!!! yay!!!!!


We had a lot of fun with Liz and her Boyfriend in Hermosa.. up until we realized that we had to bike all the way back! My legs felt like noodles at best.. and my butt hurt from my non-cushioned leopard seat, like you would not believe! We had dinner reservations for Liz's Birthday at 8:30 and it was already 6! Claudia and I biked our little butts off to get back in time but unfortunately, by the time we got back to Venice, we only had time to go straight to dinner. We were dirty, sweaty and tired, and had no time to shower. So... we hurried to the fancy hotel.. brought a beach bag with us, changed in the bathroom... stored our beach bag with the bellhop and sat at our table. (picture below is us in the bathroom..hahaha)


We were so proud of ourselves for actually making dinner on time despite all the -self inflicted- obstacles. Well... Liz ended up not showing up for her birthday dinner sooo... we ate very quickly, and went home to pass out!!! ha ha ha....

LA is my place! I love that town! I'm trying to move there even! I'm not gonna lie, I'm jealous that you ran into her husband. I love that show!

And I love yoga! I just started getting into it.
