Last February, Elessa, Kevin and I pretended to be grownups and drove to Anaheim for Westpack, a super nerdy trade show showcasing “the best supplies and innovations in packaging.” We watched live demos of how packaging components are created and filled – it was pretty cool! I felt like we were on an episode of How It’s Made, but 1,000x better because we got to pose next to all the big machines and ask stupid questions like “Does this come in pink?” Elessa and I were the only girls there, so everyone was really nice to us and gave us free candy.
Look at this thingie! It does things.
Sexy hair blowing machine. To all business women who wish to be taken seriously, Elessa and I sincerely apologize for screwing it up.
Napping station! We got to see how these air pillows are made.
Totally random and out of place
But sure, I’ll apply to be an acrobat. PS. I don’t know what the heck is wrong with my face in this picture, but you can thank Elessa for her fine photography skills
After the convention, we went across the street to have dinner at Downtown Disney.
Creepy chef is mean to alligators. :-(
Then we walked around and browsed some shops. Albino Mickey!
We spent most of our time at the confectionery shop. SERIOUSLY LOOOOOOOOK AT ALL OF THIS
Elessa is having a panic attack trying to decide what she wants
We ended up getting these! They don’t look that big in the photo, but trust… we got super sick trying to finish them and kept trying to pawn our cookies off on each other.
You can see more pics on Elessa’s blog!
Still complaining about how full we were, Kevin and I did what any reasonable person would do – we met up with friends for a second dinner. Jason/Stuntkid was in town, so we went to the Federal Bar for some eating and drinking.
Kevin is confused by fancy cheese
Haha, his idea
Loving Xanthia’s boobs!
BEST! We have no idea who these two black guys are. They just happened to be walking past, and we grabbed them and forced them to be in the photo. This is our secret to appearing popular – pose with complete strangers!
The next morning, we had lunch at the delicious Ford’s Filling Station in Culver City. SO GOOD!
Yume and Michelle. Michelle is being shy even though she’s one of the cutest people without makeup ever.
Then we went to Ross, where I found ALL THESE TUTUS on clearance for $3-7 each! They are “Size: Preschool,” but for $3 apiece I will make this work.
That’s all for now. I have to get back to work… on a Saturday night. Wee! Hope everyone is having an awesome weekend!
