I’m really bad at blogging lately and I know I need to catch up! So, here’s a quick update about last weekend:
This past weekend Ryan and I headed down to L.A. to see the fabulous, talented, incomperable, amazing and gifted Brandi Carlile. Brandi is my favorite musician and though Ryan isn’t nearly as obsessed as I am, also really likes her and her crazy-talented band. She draws a very interesting and diverse crowd so it’s always fun to do people watching (and sometimes people-staring) at her shows.
We headed out on Saturday late-morning, stopped for a quick lunch in Valencia, checked into our hotel in Burbank and made a quick and chaotic stop at Ikea for a kitchen cart that we’ve needed for months (due to a lack of usable counter-space in our kitchen). The place was a complete zoo but we found what we needed and got our relatively easily.
After that it was time to head to The Wiltern and catch the show. There was a huge crowd wrapped around the block, but we ended up with some pretty good seats. I forgot to bring my camera with me, so I’m left with a few dark and grainy images from my iPhone. Oh well. The show was fantastic and the memory is burned into my mind anyway.
