Today we all woke up at 5am...maybe we're not over the jet lag just yet...but at least it makes getting up easier!!
We left the room about 7.30am and had breakfast, then headed over to Universal Studios...and guess who we drove past on the way??...................only ZAC FRICKIN' EFRON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We were soooo chuffed!!! He lives about 20 mins from us on the way to Universal! What are the chances he'd be driving down the road the same time as us :)
When we got to Universal we picked up our free tickets and VIP front of line passes (we're so important).
The weather was a bit cloudy today, sun never really burnt through, so at this rate you guys back home will have better tans than us!!!!!! Although its supposed to be nice this weekend :)
Universal was really fun, as well as the usual rides we also had a studio tour which took us around some of the working sets and back lots that have been used for movies and still used for movies/TV shows...Bear, one you'd be interested in....we drove down Wysteria Lane!! We've got some pics and taken some camera footage!
Afterwards we drove to Rodeo Drive, parked up and wandered down past all the shops...can't believe how many designer shops are on one small road!!! Most of them being "appointment only"!!
Then we went down the street parallel, North Beverly Drive, to eat dinner at The Cheesecake Factory...the main courses were delish (and HUGE) but then OMG the cheesecakes were DELICIOUS!!! Flouse had a strawberry topped one and me and Puds had a peanut butter cup one!!! It was gorrrrggeeeooousss!!
We were meant to be going out on the town tonight but we've run out of energy...we'll see how we feel another night!!
Tomorrow morning we're going to go shopping, then go up to Runyon Canyon Park to see better views of the Hollywood sign, and then swapping our little car to the big scary 4x4 and then driving down to Laguna Beach for the afternoon/evening!
