new years!

I spent my New Years with one of my best friends, Courtney. I drove down to Laguna Beach on the 29th of December ready for a few days of absolute fun. I made it there in 4 hours and 52 minutes, record to date. Once I arrived Courtney and I went and got Cafe Rio for dinner and then called it a night.
December 30th: Knott's Berry Farm amusement park... not very amusing. We had lots of fun, but everyone and their mom was at the park that day. We were there a total of about six hours and rode a total of two rides and in my book that counts as pathetic. All in all those two rides were a rush and we ate some great food!
Dined at Pink's, a famous diner right outside Knotts. Delicious!
Court and I dressed up like tourists, looks on our faces and all.
This picture was taken after two hours of waiting in line... finally almost there. Well not for the front row, which we waited another thirty minutes for.
December 31st: NewYearsEve! Court and I spent the day lounging and then met up with Gina at the Irvine Spectrum for shopping and dinner. We went back to Court's house and got ready for the Fire and Ice Singles dance. We picked up Katy and drove to the warehouse where it was located. It was so much fun! We danced away 2010 and kissed in 2011. Too bad I dont remember the guys name, but he was sure hot.
January 1st: Great way to start off the new year, with Venice Beach. And it just happens to be my favorite place in the world. I especially loved the crazies we saw. We walked the strip, shopped and gazed at the beautiful street art. Best part was the friendly and interesting people who decided to talk to us.
here is one of them...
Happy New Year, with my best friend.
I would kill to live on Venice Beach.
The graffiti is amazing...
I found a boyfriend...
We walked over to the skating area, watched the greatest dance moved I have ever seen and laughed until we had six packs on our abs. Then watched the skaters in the skate park. I was very impressed.
January 2nd: Church and packing up to leave. If I were in Idaho, the freeways would have been clear but because of a storm over the Grapevine, I-5 was closed all Sunday. I have to take a lovely trip through Santa Barbara to get home. I sat through four hours of traffic to get there too, where it should only take an hour from LA. I spent the night in Paso Robles and was finally home around 1:30 p.m. the next day, taking me a total of twenty-one hours to get home. Not a fun drive home, but it was one of the best trips to visit Courtney I have ever had.

I'm so glad that you had a wonderful trip...we still missed you with us though! Too bad you can't be two places at once sometimes. Anyway, we were so happy to have you home safe and sound after your getting home ordeal!!!
