Wicked Weekend

In January I was able to go with 15 other UOP Dental wives to L.A. to see Wicked! Our big adventure started with a super early flight out of SFO on Saturday morning, down to L.A. Here is me, Sandee and Katie on the plane, we're so excited!
We had four rooms booked at the Renaissance Marriot Hotel right at the Hollywood and Highland shopping center. After getting settled in our rooms and grabbing some lunch we decided to head out to the Grove for some shopping. Here is Christina bravely riding in the front seat of our Taxi.
Katie, me and Sandee in the back seat.
The Grove was so fun. They had just about every store you could ever want, and tons of restaurants. It is just the most fun place to shop and if you havn't ever been there , you need to go. It's amazing and the way it is set up with the little street down the middle and the trolley cars going up and down is adorable.
Not to mention all of the "celebrity" sightings! While we were there we saw Jose Canseco, and Shane Sparks from So You Think You Can Dance! We had to get a picture with him, he was definately a favorite choreographer from the show. I love him!
For some reason these are the only pictures I can find of this glorious weekend I know there were a ton more taken, just don't know where they are. I just have to recap the days so I don't forget. After we got back from shopping we got ready to go to dinner and the show. We ate dinner at this Italian restaurant in Hollywood and Highland and then on to the show! It was amazing! I LOVED every second of it. The girl who played Glinda was so perfect, she couldn't have been any cuter. I can't wait to see it again, and hopefully soon! After the show some of us girls went to Johnny Rockets for some shakes and fries. While trying to get a group picture I slipped on the table and knocked an entire glass of ice water in Sandee's lap! I was so shocked and felt so bad, but thankfully Sandee and I are still friends! After Johnny Rockets about ten of us got together in one of the rooms to watch WWF between some of the girls, and dance routines from others. I don't think I have ever laughed so hard in my life! The next morning we had to get up bright and early for our flight home. It was the most fun weekend with the greatest group of girls, I had a blast! None of it would have come together if it weren't for sweet Katie - thank you again for working so hard, it was the perfect trip!
