Is there anything better than eating a hotdog with EVERYTHING on it, while sitting on the curb in the garment district of Los Angeles?  Yes! Eating the hotdog with Everything on it while sitting with my daughters and my [mom who wouldn't sit] on the curb in LA.  What began as a day empty of too many obligations except to blog, work on our website that we are building and maybe toss in a little grocery shopping, turned in to a full blown Green Girl Adventure day!

We accidently detoured to LA after picking up my lovely second daughter, who mistakenly thought we were just, I don't know, going to the local shopping mall and was not too happy about 'being kidnapped.' In the end, she was very satisfied with the whole trip.  Most of all, #1 Green Girl, mom, had a great time with her daughter (me!) and granddaughters. 

  There are street vendors selling the best hot dogs ever with bacon, grilled onions, guacamole, ketchup, mayo, and mustard.......I am sure that I am missing something.

The shopping was terrific, we found everything we were looking for: two maid of honor dresses, a flower girl dress, MAC makeup and a cool hippie style messenger bag that I really wanted ($15). 

If you are looking for formal dresses for little girls and tweens, we found amazing deals on really cute stuff priced between $9 and $15.  Can't beat that.

Madi got to try on some couture dresses, she had fun and was stunningly beautiful.  Her and Jocelyn purchased their bridesmaid dress for a song and a dance, I sang and they danced.
