Tourists Take Rodeo Drive

Our second and last full day in the LA area we spent the day driving around, trying to fit in as many sights as possible.  Our GPS, Sally, proudly told us we had arrived at Rodeo Drive, except she pronounced it like we were are a cattle wrangling show, which made me laugh.

We were obvious tourists in our hoodies, jeans, pushing a stroller but that just made it even more fun!  Tourists Take Rodeo (cattle wrangling) Drive!!

Wandering up and down the Drive, we passed a commercial being shot, the Rolex store, and Tiffany's where we ducked in to check it out.

The day before, at Disney, Shannon picked up a huge pink gem ring for a friend of hers.  She had the great idea to ask Tiffany's for a small bag to deliver it in.  Not only did they give her a bag but they also had a small ring box.  Very classy!

While Shannon talked to the ladies about the bag, Heidi and I looked around the store.  Heidi touched every display case in the place and I got a lot of dirty looks which just made me laugh.  I just know they get people like us in there every day, looking around because they are in town on vacation but not at all intending to buy anything.

When we left, the doorman all but shoved us out the door, pushing our stroller and carrying our tiny, empty shopping bag.  Marking this as one of the many highlights of our trip.

Another stop on our Tourists Take Rodeo (cattle wrangling) Drive trip was the Coach store.

A few days before our trip, Shannon is asking what kind of bag I am going to use when we go out exploring.  I had this white canvas bag that would hold anything, I planned to bring that. 

She, on the other hand, had picked up a bag from Marshall's.  She said I would probably tease her for it but it was similar to one she saw at the Coach store.

As we passed the Coach store on Rodeo Drive, she spotted it right inside the door.  And, as she had predicted, Shawn did tease her for her sparkly pink stripper bag.

Seeing it sitting there, she just had to take a picture to prove to him that this was a classy bag.  Not a stripper bag.

Do you see it?  It's that pink, shimmery, stripper bag in the center. 

Well, it turns out that Coach does not want people photographing their merchandise!  As Shannon snapped the picture, a sales girl quickly approached her to scold her for taking the picture. 

Shannon quickly turned on her heal and high tailed it out the door.  We all briskly hiked away from the store before our cameras were confiscated!

I am already looking forward to our next Tourists Take Rodeo (cattle wrangling) Drive trip!
