LA with Lin Lin

I went to LA last weekend as a friend of mine was surprising his gf (now fiancee) and proposing on Laguna beach. Yes, the Laguna beach with LC, Steven and Kristin! That was my favorite show in high school... or was it college? I was pretty excited about driving around looking for where Steven used to work haha. So now that we've gotten that out of the way... :)

My friend Kert asked me to take pictures for them during the proposal and we had to hide around a spot where it was going to happen. I swear, I didn't expect the weather to be so nice that day and I was in my skinny jeans and not prepared for the sun. Ultimately, my forehead was sunburned because I didn't even think about using sunscreen. The whole thing was so much fun because of the suspense of all these unknowns. When are they coming down the beach? Are they going to see us? Am I going to screw it up? Am I going to miss the moment? In the end, everything turned out perfect and she said yes! This proposal was extra special because of knowing how difficult their tough long distance relationships has been and how they've made it. All that made this moment that much more special. 

Honestly, I didn't think I was going to like LA as much as I did but the food scene won me over again. It's so much better than Seattle; especially with Asian food. I am sure I will be back soon. Enjoy the pics!

 Ohh HEY...

Ohh HEY...

 Here they come.....time to hide!
