Monique comes to Visit LA!

My good girlfriend from college, Moniqe, came to visit me in Los Angeles over Labor Day weekend and it was just like old times! Although I am gone from the wonderful city of New Orleans, I will never leave my friendships that I made while I was there. I treasure all my friends from the Big Easy, whether they are still there or not, we all still stay in touch & feel like our friendships are stronger than ever. And even though we don't talk every day, week or even month- when we do talk or see each other, it is like we haven't missed a beat! I love that. That's what true friends are all about. Well Monique just so happen to book her flight the same weekend that Gustav was coming straight for New Orleans. We both went back and forth whether she should come or wait it out... but at the end of the day- there was no need to sit and just wonder what was going to happen and waste the weekend. So she decided to just come out no matter if it was just for the weekend or for a few weeks (we didn't know how bad conditions were going to be)!

We had a great time when she was here! We ate at some great restaurants including Lido- my fav tapas restaurant! We spent the day at Glen Ivy Hot Springs Spa... my fav spa here in Cali!.... We ran a 10K - Nike's Human Race Run We went biking around Venice and Santa Monica.... We grilled out and had a bbq on Labor Day with fam and friends....
I can't wait until she comes back!
