L.A. Story


Hubby and I lead pretty quiet lives but we are amazed by the celebrities we see day in and day out. Last night we went to out local sushi place and as we were walking in, noticed a very teen age Dakota Fanning behind us. She is tall! She was with a boyfriend.

We were lead to our table and saw sitting across from us was Jonathan Schaech. He was looking good I must say. Remember how hot he was in How To make an American Quilt? HOT. At this point I was just amazed because this is the local sushi place two seconds from my house.

That's when I spotted David Moscow. He was the kid from "Big" and was in the movie Honey with Jessica Alba. Random I know but he counts!!!

Then we headed to Santa Monica to hear a friends band play. Low and behold Slash came up and played a few songs. This is when I said to myself, living here is not like living anywhere else!

Yes there are negatives about living here: earthquakes, plastic surgery every where you look, girls who are a size two two minutes after giving birth....but there are positives too. Great weather, exciting happenings, beach and mountains close by, incredible resources available, and this is where magic can happen.

I love it here, although it's expensive as hell. So far it's been a great adventure!

It seems to me you lead a very exciting life! I grew up in CA. but up in the S.F. Bay Area. I met no movie stars there unless you count Carol Doda!

I've had a few days like that where I see a bunch of celebs and then no one for months!

Now I am in the land of politicians. Not as exciting for me but still pretty cool!

I used to live in Santa Monica and I miss it sooo much. Really, it's like a fairy tale, if you can afford it.

I nominated you for an "I heart your blog" award. Stop by me, pick it up, and share the love!

I'm so unaware that I'd probably see people and then not know who they are. The guys from Dave Matthews Band are from my town but, when I do see them (two of them have relatives on my street), I pretty much never recognize them.

In my town, there are actually quite a few well-known authors (John Grisham), athletes (Howie Long), actors (Sissy Spacek), etc. and, when I do see them, there's always a small thrill in my heart because it is kind of cool to see famous people being doing normal things.

How fun! I do envy your weather, I could do without our cold weather.
Hope you've had a great Labor Day Weekend!
