After my theatre conference in Kansas City I flew to Los Angeles to meet the Dotter's and Dotter Dad for a little Spring fling vacation. I've missed the last 2 Artful Thursdays and have been itching to craft however I got lot's of great inspiration in L.A.

Like the Randy Newman song " I Love L.A.", I really do love LA and miss living there. My husband and I lived there 9 years and 2 of my dotter's were born there. It was fun to go back and the dotter's are old enough that we could share some of the places and things we love about L.A. Since I don't have a Artful Thursday post I thought I would share "our L.A." with you.

I love downtown L.A. especially the fabric and garment district. The dotter's had a great time going down Santee Alley and buying lot's of fun jewelry.

Lunch at Philippe's an L.A. iconic establishment. They serve the best French Dips in the world. The place is over 100 years old so they've had plenty of time to perfect it.
Next up is the American Girl Doll store. Need I say more?

While the other 2 dotters have dolls, Dotter #3 got her first one. As you can see, they became fast friends instantly.
This is just the first day. More to come when I get a few extra minutes.

Us too! We love L.A. as well, and as much as I've come to love living in OC I still think fondly of the time we lived closer to the city. Glad you had such a fun trip
and can keep your family connected to California!

Love your post. Wish I could get the "Jennifer L.A. Tour!" Your girls are gorgeous and I'm loving the American Girl store. Is 3 months old too early for me to buy Madeline a one?! HAHA

I just had to comment on the photo of your girls buying the jewelry - my daughters wore the same 2 dresses on easter - wow great taste eh?

I also love LA, that is why we are living there! Wish we could come say hello but we're in England! I hope you guys are enjoying yourselves, it certainly seems like you are!

I love LA and I love Santee Alley. You got me thinking I need to make a day trip it's been a while since I have been there.

Your pictures are great. I didn't get to put up an Artful Thursday post this week either, so it was nice to see what you're up to. I've never been to LA, would love to go one of these days!
