This & that in LA

This past Saturday we headed over the
mountains to LA.
We started out with a trip to IKEA
for a few items we'd been needing.
This recycling sorter, for example.
Nothing fancy, but it saves spaces
& makes recycling easier,
which is always a good thing.
Plus it came with blank labels,
so I had fun customizing them!

From there we made our way to the Fashion District
to visit Unique LA. All the jewelry, clothing, crafts,
talented designers, and food were awesome.
We had so much fun browsing
& picking out a few special items.

From the Fashion District we made our way
over to Echo Park.

We are big McSweeney's fans
and had been interested in 826LA for all the
awesome work they do.
So when we found out they were having
a writing workshop for adults,
we had to be there.
We were so busy writing & editing
that I didn't take any photos,
but both of us had lots of fun
and met some really great folks.

Finally, we headed home,
grabbing veggie 'burgers' & fries
from the most crowded In-N-Out Burger
ever in Santa Clarita.

I'll leave you with some images of the
'Christmas' light show from our trip back to Bako.
