Here’s a giveaway for all my West Coast readers! Although, this show is so star packed, if you win, it would be worth a flight from just about anywhere in the world.

For anyone that is familiar with my trashy dietary intake, you probably know that I heart me a food court.  And I frequent them often.  In fact, if you’re ever in a mall and can’t find your way to the Orange Julius or the Panda Express, shoot me a text.  Using my powers of ESP (extra sodium perception) I’ll give you Google Maps step-by-step directions in a jif.
