I caught up to Glenn

My 23rd Birthday was on August 24, yes, exactly one week after Glenn's! To celebrate, we went to Hamasaku, a trendy Japanese restaurant in LA known for being the favorite of celebs such as Harrison Ford, Stephen Spielburg, Christina Aguilera, and basically every A-list celeb on the planet! Supposedly it was the first place that Mary Kate Olsen ate after she got out of anorexia rehab haha! It is also fun, because they name the star's favorite rolls after them, so you can imagine being a star while you eat your sushi!

Unfortunately, we did not have any celeb sightings, but if there had been a famous person in there, they couldn't hide because it is such a small restaurant with no back rooms or anything. On the way to the restrooms there are oodles of very new signed movie posters!

Aside from the celeb popularity, (and Most Importantly!) the sushi was DELICIOUS and presented very well. I enjoyed every single bite! It is definitely a place we will go again when we have a special occasion to celebrate! They even sang me happy birthday and wrote my name on the dessert plate! Unfortunately I forgot to bring my camera because we were rushing out the door to make our reservation, so I took the picture above right when we got back to our apartment.

Also, today I went shopping for the first time in a really long time at Center mall! We got a little bit lost finding it, and it was extremely crowded, but I got to shop at H&M so it was all worth it! If you aren't familiar with H&M, you are missing out! They have trendy designer-looking clothes for prices cheaper than gap or express. (and they hold up much better than forever 21) I'm so happy to be living in a city that has one! Glenn bought some jeans at Express and I also picked up my free birthday gift from the Aveda store; a neat little custom-mixed perfume spray!
