Ok, if you’re just tuning in- In my last post, I was just talking about how crazy life has been these last couple weeks around our house. Might I add, that I LOVED every second of it!
And so the nutty-ness continues…
Every year my favorite meat heads, Bauer and his brother Kobi, come to town for our Family Super Bowl Party Extravaganza. Each and every year we have this ridiculously awesome party at my brothers’ house for the occasion. It usually ends in people passed out on couches and my guts hurting from eating way too much random delicious stuff. (Shout out to my girl Sylvia for her delicious cheese stuffed, bacon wrapped dates!) This year it ended with me kickin’ everyone’s’ butts at The Michael Jackson Experience Wii game. (I had no idea how well I knew his dance moves! It’s almost freakish! I AM A NERD!) Well, each and every year (without fail) Bauer and Kobi fly in from Albuquerque for the wild festivities. This year Bauer made the trek from Paris… YES!… Paris, France! Only Bauer would do this! (His job relocated him there.) He’s a crazy like that! 😉 This is the same dude who on his 21st birthday, allowed our friends to color in his front tooth with black Sharpie, so he could look like a pirate! Even our good homie, Raj made it out from Arizona for the fun. (And yes, that is Raj dressed as “Ramathorn” from the movie “Super Troopers“. Yes, I know!… My friends are awesome!) So, needless to say, Casa de Burlygirly smelt like a frat house that week and we spent all of our time running around pulling all sorts of shenanigans!
We ate a lot of burritos! Ate “All You Can Eat Sushi” that was actually good. And I would also like to add that nobody got sick! If you like sushi, go here! $25 for All You Can Eat and they definitely don’t skimp on anything. Come to think of it… We ate a lot! The boys even found time to go sky diving while they were here…twice! Here are some highlights…
This is Bauer and Raj from when we were at an oxygen bar. Don’t ask how we ended up here. I just remember that right before this, Bauer bought dress socks that had T-bone Steaks printed on them. [Shrug] Anyways— while we were at the oxygen bar, they put these electrode patches on our backs and gave us each a little controller. Basically you can pick and choose how strong the current is on your back and it’s suppose to massage you. I think I would have rather just gave $10 to a giant linebacker and had him dig his elbow into my back, but I guess supposedly normal people find this electrode thing is relaxing. Bauer thought it would be a brilliant idea to put the patches on his face. Thus was the birth of the Electrode Facial. He put them on his face, cranked up the electricity and then continued to twitch around in his seat every time the pad pulsated. Pretty hilarious!
One day we made a pit stop by Union Station in downtown L.A. It’s gorgeous in there! It’s all Art Deco and a lot of really famous movies have been shot their. (Possible wedding venue for the nuptials of one Miss Burlygirly to a certain Mr. Veau??? Maybe.)
On this day we grabbed a bite at one of my all-time favorite eateries- Philippe’s! My Dad has been bringing us here since I was a little kid! It’s all about the French dips and coffee that’s only 9 cents a cup! It’s definitely an L.A. historical landmark. The above pic is of Mr. Nick Bauer getting excited to grub!
All in all, it was a great week! I’m still tired from it! Our house is so quiet with them gone. We decided that next time they are here, we are all getting matching Goonies tattoos! How rad would that be!?!?!? Also (and this is totally random), if you’re into old photos like me- Go check out this chick’s photo project! It’s so stinkin’ rad! And if you like that, then check this out!
P.s. Thank you to my amazing friends! I can’t thank you enough for making my life so kick-ass!
I leave you with the best movie clip eva!!!
