Camping : Joshua Tree


IMG_2320, originally uploaded by rizanola.

My bro and I went camping this past weekend with some friends and even though the trip was short... it was definitely good times. We stayed at Black Canyon Rock and had 3 adjacent campsites. There were 10 of us that went and it was a fun group... my sides still hurt from laughing so much! Can't wait to go back....

Meet Barb Palser

When I was in San Diego, I reconnected with a former IB co-worker,
barb palser, who is now with McGraw-Hill. I was meeting with her in
her office and noticed she had a Katrina book-- which she wrote! Check
it out... She also had jazz fest posters up in her office!!! It was
like a double blast from the past!

Views from downtown la

I had a big appt downtown this week---yes, I finally got to dress up
and get out of my house! It was actually nice going to an office and
presenting to people wearing suits and not sweats! The appointment was
actually with a friend who got me into his company. Here are some
views from his office!

Abbott kinney festival

It's funny that every festival I go to has a booth with new Orleans
food! It's refreshing to see these booths! This year, this festival
seemed to have double the amount of people in previous years! They
actually ran out of kettle korn at the end... Who runs out of kettle
korn at a festival!? We all ended up meeting up ( minus Maeve and
Kara) but it was tough bc of cell coverage! Note to self: defintely
only bike as an option to get there and have set plans as to where to
meet up and don't change ur plans!

Riza and myla

It's been 7years since I've seen myla, back then she used to go by My.
She was my intern at nola.com! She now is a marketing professor at
loyola maramount here in los Angeles and now lives down the street
from me! Thanks facebook!!! That's how we found each other after all
these years!!!
