Ice Skating L.A Live

Living in Southern California, we don’t have a frozen lake that we can ice skate on. But there are indoor ice skating rinks! Since, I used to rollerblade a lot as a kid, ice skating isn’t that tough for me. 3 years ago, I went to New York and wanted to ice skate at the Rockefeller Center – which is outdoors! I didn’t get a chance to do that because it was WAY to packed. THEN when L.A Live opened, I wanted to ice skate there. again never got around to doing it until Sunday night!

It was like the perfect Christmas atmosphere. Obviously it wasn’t snowing but it was still chilly outside. There were a ton of people. The ice rink wasn’t the biggest but still fun. For once, I was actually good at something while everyone else struggled. Normally, I’m the one that’s struggling and everyone else is trying to help me! Lol

still against the wall

this is as far as where patty made it.

David - who was such a good sport even though it was his first time ice skating!

Christmas 2011 with Nai, Patty, & Melissa

Hello everyone! So I did NOT do my 12 days of Christmas postings. Luckily I didn’t promise anything! LOL. I somehow got busy with Christmas that I didn’t get around to doing it.

I had my Christmas gift exchange with Nai, Melissa, and Patty. I wanted to share some pictures with you. Another great year with awesome presents with them! I'll explain some of the pictures now.

I gave Patty a set of bowls because she always invites us over soup but she doesn't have bowls. It's always BYOB = bring your own bowl.

I gave Nai a hairbrush because when she had us over for Thanksgiving, I told her to go get ready. She said "I AM READY!" haha so I was like "oh... go brush your hair or something so we can take pictures" hahaha





LOVE all my gifts!

Another great gift that I got was from my friend David. I was seriously touched by his gifts and how much trouble he went through. It was just really sweet. He went to Hobby Lobby(which by the way is AMAZING!!! I was like a kid in a candy store! I wish there was one closer to where I live.) He got me ribbons, stickers, BUTTONS, an artbin for my cricut cartridges, and a Cricut tool kit -- which I already had so we exchanged it for a Letter Press kit! It's probably one of the most thoughtful gifts I've ever received. Thank you SOOO much!!!

I love having people in my life who enables my crazy hobbies! Anyway I went ice skating last night. I'll have to share pictures tomorrow!
