The time we got a passport

When we saw that Leigh Bardugo was going to be in LA for King of Scars, going was a sure thing. Michelle and I got our tickets right when they were announced and we eagerly waited for the day of the event. We pressured Jessica into getting a ticket and we all headed up early in the day. We stopped at The Ripped […]

I put it on the calendar and monitored The Grove event page to see if the event would become wristbanded. Since we live in San Diego and wristbands go on sale at 9am, we […]

Hubs and I have always been big Blink-182 fans. We went to one of their concerts on our first date and with Mark and Tom being from San Diego, we couldn’t help but love them. We’ve met Travis a few times at a music convention, but once I found out that he was going to be signing his new book at The Grove, […]

The time we met a horror master

The time we met a horror master

We saw that John Carpenter was doing at signing at The Grove and we definitely wanted to go. We got married on Halloween {on purpose} and walked into our reception to the theme music from the movie Halloween. We got up to the store and bought the graphic novel and then wandered around The Grove to kill time. We ended up getting snacks […]
