It was the grand opening of the observation deck at #SkySpace #USBankTower in DTLA. I had it in my calendar months ago for the slide and about two weeks prior, I went on the site to get tickets. I wished I had a go pro but I didn’t need one at all. I was upset at the fact that we weren’t able to hold anything (phone) in our hands while sliding down. The cool part about it was that they took a photo of you coming down the slide. Just like at an amusement park! When we had all came down, we went to the kiosk to look at the photos. Of course, mine was the only one that wasn’t showing. They tried to mess with it for over 15 minutes and then I asked to speak to a manager. I nicely said, “I waited in line for over an hour and paid $30 to go down a slide and not be able to get a photo? I’d like to go down again.” He obliged and took me back to the slide, cut in front of the crowd and I got to go on again! This time, my photo came out! I was most appreciative of their accommodation and so happy that we as a family got to experience such an amazing part of our city. The space is beautiful and the views are breathtaking. Even my husband who’s scared of heights enjoyed the visit. I can’t wait to come again and go down the slide over and over again when there is no line!
Tyler and I had a really great weekend together. I enjoy picking him up on Fridays even though I have to sit in traffic for 2-3 hours from BH to South OC. But that extra night I get to have him under the same roof means a lot. He’s growing so fast and any time spent away from each other is detrimental to our relationship. It’s crazy because one week we’ll get along great and he’ll go home happy. The next weekend, I will yell and be upset and he won’t go home happy, neither will I. But I understand. There are times I can’t always be the #partimemom and do whatever he wants. I still need to put my foot down and do my part as if I was a #fulltimemom. I can’t let him slide on things because I will not allow him to get away with things because I see him on the weekends.
It’s difficult. I will say the most difficult part is the fact that I can implement mannerisms and behaviors that I think he should learn and carry as he gets older because I don’t see him that often. I don’t get to use the good that I’ve learned growing up to make sure that he has the same upbringing. And as much as it’s unfair, it’s also fair. I realized that no matter how the situation would be, there will never be a fair way to raise a child with divorced parents. One person will always feel like they get the short end of the stick. And i think I’ve come to just accept that fact. Once it’ll be me, another time it’ll be my first husband. (But I feel like it’s me most of the time! :P)
JL gave me her bridesmaid’s sandals from when she was one not too long ago in Mexico. I borrowed it when I went to #doJim in NY and kind of loved the idea of having really cute shower slippers in the locker room. I felt fancy and she offered them to me so #duh, I took it.
I love seeing my cute little tootsies at Equinox and I’m sure people are wondering why they didn’t think to get cute ones before!😛
Not only do they envy my bag, they now envy my slippers!
Thanks JL!! I love you~

I needed a nap when I woke up and Bear had to drag me to do Jim but I’m so glad I went. I warmed up for five minutes and joined him to do weights… I’ve been overeating lately since I had planned to start a detox on Monday. Need to get back into #doingjim in the ams before work.
I had a very busy Saturday planned. Tyler was away and I had a bunch of errands to run.
8am: Doing Jim
10am: Jewelry District
1pm: Irvine BMW/Lunch/NM
Carwash didn’t open at 7am. So I went to Porto’s and back home. Came back to the carwash at 8am. Didn’t make it to do jim, got the jewelry district and made the rest of the scheduled plans.
I got home around 3pm and passed out. I have been still feeling under the weather and I used the weekend to rest.
My second video on the Canon G7X and I’m loving it!
Don’t mind my ugly face.
I love Uber and their services but I hate that their drivers are inconsiderate of other vehicles on the road. I was behind this idiot trying to get into the parking garage and he pulls in before me and blocks the damn driveway so he can drop his passengers off.
Please have your drivers pull up and stop in front of a curb instead of blocking traffic. Thank you.
Fellow driver on the road…
One random night… can’t remember when since I wait too long to blog.
I have all these photos uploaded to post but I never get around to it…
Either way, we ended up at Continental Club and enjoyed listening to Standards and discussing life.
While my gf was going here, we just went around doing random stuff. One of the days, we went to DTLA to go to World Jewlerly, but St. Vincent was closed and we weren’t able to get in. We did however hop into the other stores that were open to check out diamonds and rings.
We had a quiet celebration this year… we actually sat around after dinner for an extra hour just to experience the countdown at the restaurant. I only made reservations to L.A. Prime assuming it wasn’t a prix fixe menu, but it was. And almost $400 later, we went home.
I only wanted to be there because of the view. And their menu is good, their prix fixe was okay. I wasn’t even in the mood to drink. (I realized after my second drink)
Happy 2016 everyone, hope you all partied safely while my old ass went straight to bed when I got home.😛
Wednesday morning meetings in DTLA overlooking the site… what a view~
Our date for the tour finally came around and we got to experience the unforgettable exhibits at The Broad Museum!!! This museum was exceptional and I suggest everyone to go visit The Broad if you can get tickets.
We were also able to get a peek into the Infinity Room (for ONLY 45 seconds!!!!) but well worth the short amount of time! The room was spectacular and super visually appealing. I didn’t want to leave!
Of course I went to the Frank Sinatra exhibit at The Grammy Museum at L.A. LIVE! This year, I will do and see as many Frank Sinatra related things to commemorate his centennial!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY FRANK SINATRA!!!
