my birthday weekend...

kaleo came to visit me in california for my birthday weekend.
i always have the greatest time when people come to visit because that is when i get to try new touristy things. 
little by little i get to check off items on my bucket list.
while he was here we "hiked" up close to the hollywood sign, we drove up mulholland drive, and we went to a lakers game. 
we didn't make the official hike to the sign because we couldn't find the trail, so i'm not sure if that one counts or not. 
but still, it was amazing to see the hollywood hills. 
as some of you know, i'm kind of still obsessed with "the hills" even long after it has stopped airing.
so i always get so dang excited to see where lauren, heidi, and audrina have been! 
we also did some other things that aren't on my bucket list, but still worth sharing.
we explored laguna and drank smoothies on the beach, watched a surf competition in huntington, ate corn dogs on the santa monica pier, ate dinner twice at downtown disney, and went to malibu for the very first time to eat at Duke's. 
when he is here, it helps to make california feel a little more like my home. 
and if you ask me, it was the perfect southern california weekend. 
i made a short video with some of the pictures that we took over the weekend.
