so, my actual birthday was (is) june 11th, however, my 30-for-30 birthday celebration challenge was throughout the month of june. (hopefully admitting this will excuse my late blog posts). anywho, i think it’ll be best to combine the next few “chapter 30″ blog posts into three. that way, we can have quantity versus quality. and i can finally close out this blog series.

the birthday pictures above are pictures of:

  • grand park in downtown los angeles
  • california fish grill
  • LA county museum of art (LACMA)
  • i didn’t capture my new iphone6 that my parents bought me. neither did i capture my new life insurance policy and retirement plan. these things were actually on my birthday bucket list if you will, and i’m glad that God worked things out for me.

#thankfultuesday: waaaay up, i feel blessed.

thankful tuesday

i woke up this morning feeling very thankful. the work day is going by relatively smoothly. of course i’m extremely tired because i’m the genius who stays up past my bedtime (which is around 11pm), but i’m just thankful to be alive. i’m thankful for this fabulous los angeles sunny weather. i’m thankful that my mcdonald’s lunch was fresh: a filet-o-fish, a big mac and value fries. (don’t judge me. i at least guzzled it down with water). i’m thankful that i have new clean music to listen to by ms. tori kelly and i’m thankful that she’s getting such a great response for her work. tori’s music and message is pure and she’s not afraid to rep christianity. that’s super cool. i feel like i know tori.

anyway, the moral of the story is I’M THANKFUL. i feel blessed. waaaay up! (sorry, i couldn’t resist).

love y’all.

miscellaneously,

#CHAPTER30: egg slut.

i love working in downtown los angeles because i get to act like a tourist and explore all of the cool new architecture, museums, real estate, landmarks and restaurants. i recently hit up the infamous “grand central market” just for the even more infamous eatery, EGGSLUT. i kept it simple with a bacon, egg & cheese sandwich. according to the eggslut menu, the ingredients for this particular sandwich include: hardwood smoked bacon, over medium egg, cheddar cheese and chipotle ketchup in a warm brioche bun. oooh, fancy!

and you know what? it was eggcellent!

what’s your favorite eatery at grand central market in downtown la?

first up in my #CHAPTER30 blog series, also known as my ode to my (upcoming) 30th birthday, is the westin bonaventure hotel in downtown los angeles! ever since usher’s music video for “you don’t have to call,” i’ve wanted to face my slight fear of heights and ride the infamous outside elevator.

well, i did it. by myself . and i almost passed out, but i’m still alive. LOL.

there’s more southern california fun to come. if you’ve missed my introduction to this new blog series, you can catch up by clicking here!
