California Dreaming.

Ah, the glamorous life was fun for a weekend! We spent Friday - Sun in our old stomping grounds - Los Angeles! It was a super quick weekend but filled with some really great quality time with our friends. Thanks so much, friends, for making it a great weekend - even good enough to make us thinking about moving back! Well, not so fast - THINK about it - not actually PLAN it. Nice to day dream about, though.
As some of you know, we were able to stay at a very swanky hotel The SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills- courtesy of our friend Christina back home who let us use a gift certificate she received and couldnt use. Here is a shot of me in the bathroom and of a room. The decor was very high end, abstract, modern - and random. It was just a really fun experience to say the least!

We started out Friday night with a bang when we arrived at the hotel and they were hosting the Image Awards for the NAACP. We ride up in a rental and work clothes to find a red carpet and everyone in gowns! We immediately rushed out the door to meet our friend Torrie at one of our favorite LA eats: Cube on La Brea. We had a lovely time there as you can order wine now and the cheese menu continues to be off the hook. I had a truffle burger which was delicious. We saw Creepy Ethan from Lost there. Once I saw a celebrity I felt at home. Afterwards we had Torrie back to the hotel where Shawn and I and her decided it was time to take some ExtenZe. Warning: I took it and went to bed. False advertising.

Saturday was a rainy day in Hollywood but definitely not a slow one. We started the day with breakfast with Pam and Lev @ Tres, the hotel restaurant. Included in the gift certificate was $100 a day credit for food and boy did we ever stretch that dollar to the end. We dined on a swanky continental breakfast (both mornings) but I ordered the Eggs Benedict with Hollandaise AIR. Yes, you heard that correctly. AIR. Molecular Gastronomy Light, Id say.

Then I met Evie for some Milkshakes and pedicures at La Vie Lorange. What a treat it was to be able to chat and catch up all while getting pampered! We then stopped by Meagan's new place to see where shell be living. What a great apartment!

In the evening a bunch of my friends (Evie, Lappin, Meag, Pam, Lev, Torrie) all went out to this Brazilian restaurant in Los Feliz for dinner. Excellent food and great friends and so so ambiance. I actually forgot to take many photos but rest assured a good time was had and there were many topics debated: The Reader, Mormonism and Babies.

We finished the night with a drink at Ye Rustic Inn and called it a night! The next day was short and sweet. We hiked Runyon Canyon quickly and I made Shawn eat a Mos salad.
