Happy Friday everyone!! I am finally in Houston, Texas! I'm taking some time to do a few things around the city before I drive out to my next location later this afternoon. Be sure to follow me on Instagram to see what I'm doing before I blog about it!
I'm back with more photos and details of my Southern California trip I took a few weeks ago. The main reason I event went to California was to cheer on the U.S. Men's National Team in the Gold Cup! The game was hosted at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. The U.S. played Mexico and of the 93,000 people in attendance, I'm sure 80,000 of the people there were cheering for Mexico. I ended up smack dab in the middle of a group of Mexican supporters but I ended up having a blast and making some new friends!
Here's a panoramic view of the Rose Bowl Stadium. Look at the beautiful mountains in the background!
The Gold Cup was only my fourth soccer game ever, but this one was by far the BEST! The atmosphere was electric and I was on edge almost the entire time. I was so pumped when the game headed to overtime!
My new friends made me wear the sombrero after Mexico defeated the US 3-2 in overtime. All in good fun!
Even though my team didn't win, I still had an amazing time while out in Pasadena. Prior to the game that night, I spent some time in Glendale to do a little bit of shopping. California has so many more options than what I have at home! I was kind of overwhelmed to be honest!
*Visit Americana at Brand and Glendale Galleria.
I grabbed a red velvet cupcake from Sprinkles before the Dodgers game Friday night, so I decided to test out the red velvet ice cream while at The Americana. Definitely two thumbs up from me!
And like all things California fresh, I had to get lunch at Lemonade. The offer a variety of salads, fresh veggies, and (think kale salad, beet salad, etc.) and entrees. I opted for a kale salad, white truffle mac & cheese and citrus poached salmon filet. The salmon was delicious and I fully enjoyed the kale salad. And I couldn't leave without getting what else? Lemonade!
The Altadena/Pasadena area needs to be on your list of places to visit while out west! Feel free to ask me more in the comment section below.
