I’m finally here! My first week in LA has had its ups and downs, but I’ve loved every minute. Since I arrived last Saturday, I experienced two firsts–a Dodgers game and an acting class. My wonderful roommate, Lauren, and I have also spent our free time exploring and photographing the city.
Anyone who knows me knows that I am obsessed with ice cream. So, to be honest, the yogurt shops in LA have been one of my favorite parts of the experience. So far I have been to Pinkberry, Yogurtland, and Menchees. Yes, Pinkberry started the trend and has a cult following. I liked the other two better, though. Basically, you walk into each store, grab a cup (more like a bucket), and start filling it with yogurt and toppings. These stores have exotic flavors like taro and lychee, and you can try as many as you want before committing. Naturally, Lauren and I tried almost every flavor. Once you’ve decided, you fill your cup with yogurt and toppings and pay for it by the ounce. Delicious. I’ve already said more than once that Elon needs one of these yogurt stores. Any other recommendations?
This weekend will be just as exciting. Lauren and I are attending a Jimmy Kimmel Live taping (featuring Jessica Alba) tonight. Then, the entire group is making the trip to Santa Monica tomorrow. Below is a picture of Lauren and I posing with Marilyn Monroe on Hollywood Blvd.
