I feel like I'm still trying to process what all happened this weekend, it was such a whirlwind! We had some a.maz.ing food while there so let's start with that shall we? Blu Jam Cafe (highly recommend the California Omelette - but really you can get anything and won't go wrong), Urth Caffé (everything is delicious and fast), and Bricks & Scones (which essentially just looked like an upscale library). We also had some yummy Pho and Chinese food but the restaurant names are on the tip of my tongue at the moment so just take my word for it.
Since our coming down was a complete surprise to Gavi we didn't have time to plan out every detail or go to all the places we could have, but trust me when I tell you we made the very most of it. Just walking down the streets of Melrose Place and Larchmont Village was more than enough. The overwhelming amounts of ivy covered buildings, pretty streets lined with palm trees, and the most perfect graffitied walls - I was a very happy girl! It was basically a miracle Gavi and I didn't flood our phones with pictures (but yes, there was lots documented thanks to our handsome men who accommodated our every silly wish)!
Isn't she a beaut?! To celebrate the birthday girl, we had Chinese take-out on the roof over sunset (twinkle lights and balloons included) and then took ubers downtown to Honeycut to finish off the night with some serious dancing on a multi-colored lit up dance floor. The music was so incredible, I felt like I was zapped back to my thirteen year old self. Even Eric busted some moves - this coming from the guy who refused to dance at our own wedding. Yeah, it was that good!
Now excuse me while I hunt down more pictures from this trip! Trust me, there are some real gems you don't want to miss! Moral of the story, I need to come to LA more often!!
