"Neither, I prefer the bananna I brought from home"

Gooooooooooooooooooooooood afternoon everybody! So this weekend I went to LA to see my gorgeous sister who lives with one of the kindest, most talented and funny roommates EVER!

His house is adorable red brick and blue painted shutters and borders. Pink roses lining the wall and little mini lanterns lighting the path way to the door steps. Think Monicas' apartment in FRIENDS since everyone one of their friends just seems to come and go as they please. They hang out, eat and end their days with funny recaps of their nights out on the town.

Wine was bought by the fist fulls from the neighborhood (and by neighborhood I mean one house down from) convenient store that was in the movie Super Bad.

We stalked Shia LaBouf mothers' house (which was about two blocks away) and were total creepers with our mugs of wine listening to him talk (in the tree covered front court yard) while giggling tipsily in the rain.

but ugh how he has grown up :) my my

yeah I for sure had a crush on him when he was young. You know you did too!

Our first night there pretty much lasted from 2pm-2am with an amazing dinner at a nice downtown Burbank restaurant, vinyl record perusing, jam session on drums and piano (talented I say!) huddled around the smokers outside for support and to hear their funny stories in the wee hours of the morning. I had woken up at about 3:45 am Saturday morning so I pretty much crashed out at 1am with the party still in full swing out in the house.

My mom and her bestie Elle, left at the crack of dawn (poor ladies, don't know how they drove with just a hand full of hours of sleep) Mary and I bummed around the next day waking up some what late and snacking on vegan Thai food, KitKats and watching The Grizzly Man. A documentary of sorts. Then brown bagged it with our Micky's beer to the Improv show (hence the odd blog title. By far the funniest punch line I could have never imagined at the time) followed by more drinks and mass amounts of Mexican food at home.

Monday we woke up bright eyed and bushy tailed! We showered, shaved, and went to pick out my replacement ring! She bought me the most amazing ring last Christmas which was for many special reasons. Unfortunately I am a highly acidic individual, so the ring, left a ring of green on my hand. She returned it and it was only until this weekend that I picked out another. It is B-A-YOU-TI-FULL! Silver band, gold looping on both sides of a polish Garnet stone.

Her roommate some how worked his mojo online and managed to snag us three tickets to the SOLD OUT Mumford and Sons concert that night at the Palladium in Hollywood! The two opening acts were not good. I can not lie. The only thing we enjoyed about the first act was his hair. No joke the man looked like Amy Winehouse meets British Pirate. His hair had it goin' on. The second band was ... ok. but so bland that about three songs in we pretty much just turned to one another and started talking. Something none of us do on a regular basis because of how rude that is. But I was standing there for far too long to pull out my "Be quiet, polite and stand there" manners from my days at church as a child. No Thank You. then there was 30min! I kid you not before Mumford came on stage.

Mumford is so adorable and talented! had no idea he played so many instruments all the while singing so beautifully! if you haven't listened to them I so highly recommend you do! The venue was beautiful! Chandeliers hanging all around the the second floor, with a sting of bulbs over head on the main floor, plenty of bathrooms, and great sound!  They are so completely adorable on stage with one another too. Fun conversations with the audience. Just watching their faces as they sang some of these songs was breath taking. These boys sing to romance your pants off, and get you jumping up and down singing at the top of your lungs.  My favorite thing they did though was unplug for their last number and played their song "sister" acapella which had everyone move in oh so close. It was beautiful, and we were still as could be in order to hear them. I loved it! I love them!

Ugh what a wonderful weekend!
Who else had a great weekend, or favorite concert?
