La La Land

As a Christmas gift to my fiancé I bought him tickets to see Alton Brown live. This would be our second time seeing Alton. The first time was in October of 2013. I'm pretty sure my fiancé loves Alton just as much as he loves me, if not more. I put on my Spiderman shirt first, by the way. He wanted to be my twinsy. 

I don't know why anyone would want to live in LA. It is absolutely disgusting and the traffic is horrendous. Once we got to our hotel {after sitting in traffic} we decided to walk to the nearest mall where we grabbed some linner {that's lunch and dinner combined}. We saw some very interesting people. 

That's the Hollywood sign above my head. All the tourists were gathered around taking pictures so I decided to join in. 

{Side note - I am way too hard on myself. I constantly put myself down for being too heavy and not being thin enough. But what is thin enough? If I did lose more weight would I ever truly be happy with the way I look? I saw this photo of myself and I thought, "Wow! I actually look fit and trim!" Why can't I see myself that way all the time? I really need to work on that because I've come a LONG way and I should be proud.}


As my fiancé was getting his vest and jacket on I couldn't help but stare. He kept asking me, "What?" But all I could do was smile. He is just so unbelievably good looking.

You can't tell because he's in all black but he wore his brand new three piece suit for Alton. 

It was a lot of fun dressing up.

The last time I saw my fiancé laugh so hard was the last time we went to see Alton Brown. Every time I looked over at him he was smiling. I'm so glad he enjoyed himself. 

Here is Alton's photo of the audience that night. Yep, we're in there. We were on the left hand side below the balcony. 

On Sunday we went to the Grove in LA. We don't normally go shopping at the Grove, we like to spend most of our time in the farmers market behind the Grove. They have food from all over the world so my fiancé loves eating there. I enjoyed a coffee from the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. 

We took a photo in this same exact spot over two years ago now. I need to find that photo and put them side by side. 

After walking around for a bit we headed home. Yes, we sat in traffic again! We stopped for groceries and meal prepped. My fiancé helped me season my ground turkey and he made me homemade marinara for my lunches. The ground turkey is so delicious! I actually want to eat it. It tastes like Italian sausage but it's so much healthier for me. I had a request for the recipe and he was kind enough to post it on his blog. Head on over if you're interested. I'm so glad I have him around to help me get through my last week on the Whole 30. 

I apologize for not blogging as much. I love my new job but it keeps me very very busy! I'm trying to get in my workouts and spend time with my fiancé as well.
