Trip to Hollywood!
It has been a pretty long month since finishing my first half marathon and it seems like that I’ve either been traveling or just had a super busy schedule every weekend since then.
Even though I could hardly walk the next morning after the KC Marathon, I boarded a flight for LAX to attend a lodging conference. I’ve been to LA several times before however this one was a bit more unique considering that the conference was held at the famous historic Hotel Roosevelt in the heart of Hollywood.
I somehow lucked out and got a cabana room near the pool for the conference and that made for some interesting people watching from my patio and it was just a nice place to relax as well. Overall the hotel was very cool experience and it was interesting to get to check out all of the history behind it.
If you ever get a chance to make it out there, I highly recommend the restaurant onsite 25 degrees. We actually ate there 3 times during our stay and they’ve got some amazing burgers and breakfast. Get the #3 on the burger menu and you won’t be disappointed. I definitely enjoyed my time in LA and also made some time to head down to Santa Monica for a morning and I forgot how much I love the beach. Standing on the end of the pier just staring out over the water is really a relaxing moment and really gives you some perspective on where you life is at and the direction you’d like to go. At least it did for me anyway.
This was actually a pretty cool experience overall as I highly doubt that I ever personally stay in the Hotel Roosevelt again. Would I recommend it to others? If you’re up for paying top dollar, then I’d say at least do it for a night for a chance to check out the property and the history behind it. If you do go, be sure to get out and go check out all the craziness that Hollywood Blvd has to offer, you won’t be disappointed.
Kansas City Chiefs vs Cleveland Browns – October 27th, 2014
You’re probably wondering why I named this post “Travel & Family”? While I spent a ton of time traveling over the last few weeks one of the big things that have occurred to me is that regardless of anything you’re family will always be there for you. They’re my constant in my life and I know that no matter what they’ll always be there for me.
My dad has been a big Cleveland Browns fan for the longest time and so this year for his birthday my brother and I decided to pick-up some tickets since they were actually coming to KC. It was a pretty cold morning, but we were able to get out to Arrowhead early and do some good tailgating and just spend some quality time together. It actually was a really good game and I was hoping that the Browns my pull it off just for Dad’s sake of being there, but it didn’t actually happen. Regardless we had great seats for the game and Kyle and I were able to have a great time with our dad and that’s all that really matters.
I actually spent the rest of the month constantly busy and actually just got back from a 5 day trip to Minnesota earlier this week. Things are settling down a bit now and I’m looking forward to some stuff coming up. We’ve experience some change at our house over the last few weeks and I truly believe sometimes that change does everyone some good one way or another. Sometimes you just need to hit the reset button and start things over. So as I’ve said before I’m exciting for a lot of things coming up in the future and everything that I currently have as well. I’m blessed to have an amazing family and friends that’ll always be there for me no matter what. Whatever you do, don’t ever lose sight of the fact that your family should always be the first priority in your life and if you can remember that then rest of it will work itself out in the end.
More Music for You!
Anyone that knows me will tell you that I think the 90s are the greatest decade that ever existed and that’s because they were. So I thought I’d do a bit of a throwback for some music today. I’m a huge alternative music fan, especially from the 90s and I’m a big Pearl Jam fan. This is probably my favorite song from the album Ten and it’s a great live version of the song from the Pearl Jam “Twenty” film. I hope you enjoy it as much as I always do!
