I am fortunate enough to be a Mom who’s children like to spend time with me.
My son Bowen moved out to Los Angeles almost 3 1/2 years ago…time has flown!!!
When he left I thought how can I do this?? Being so far way from him was going to be so hard!
Now, I LOOK back and think of the amazing trips and time we have had together in California. The time together is surely more special and I am thankful to have it to enjoy.
This was a quick trip but very timely. Bowen went out to LA because he studied film and media in college and is going after his dream. January, 17th Bad Boys for Life hit the screen and Bowen Tibbetts appeared in the credits!!!
We went to the Fox Theatre in Westwood Village to watch, both of us seeing the entire movie for the first time together. It was a fun movie with action, comedy and the love of family. I literally was on the edge of my seat clapping for Will Smith to do his thing at the end of the movie. Bowen found this amusing. I think my emotions were high with pride for his involvement in the movie and name in the credits. Proud Mom moment!!!
I arrived mid day Saturday and of course our first stop was In and Out Burger, a MUST when visiting LA.
Enjoyed a little ping pong too!
The museum was close to the Fox theatre but we still had some time so he took me to his favorite cookie place for the best bargain in LA! Cookies for .50 and an ice cream sandwich cookie for $3.00 his treat. HAHAHAHAHA YUMMMY!!
Sunday is brunch day!!!
One of my favorite places for brunch is Fig at the Fairmont Bungalows in Santa Monica. Now…I am going to tell you a secret but SHHHH…don't tell anyone because the couch is mine! There is an outside terrace if you enter the doors to the Bungalows and turn right. There is a lovely spot by a fish pond AND the menu is the Fig menu. It is relaxing, quiet and yummy!!! BUT keep this to yourself:)
Monday is our last day together and we planned a hike at the Malibu State Park.
We had lunch and walked around the Malibu Country Mart. A wonderful spot with food, art, shopping, zen garden and a play ground. Something for everyone!!
So fun!! I am a sucker for this kind of stuff. LOOKing forward to The LOOK Book, Casey coming soon!!
