so, after our normal tripLa La and i snuck over to L.A. (with my mom) for a few days to celebrate her 10th birthday.  we had a really fun time. and, although i wish i could have explored, all the places i read about from blogs and my goop app, there just wasn’t time for it.  we stayed in santa monica and rode bikes by the beach every morning (gosh i could get used to that), got as close to the oscars as we possibly could (we saw many a black suv’s escorting the stars but no stars themselves), shopped (because that is what girls seem to like to do, even 10 year old ones), went to disneyland, and ate lots of great food.  we even got to stay an extra day because our flight got cancelled, due to snow back home (many a tears were shed – tears of joy!).  it’s definitley a memory i will always treasure.  i’ll take a trip over things any day.  memories and experiences are pretty much priceless.  i’m hoping to make many ad to my menagerie that i’m carefully curating.

if you are headed that way here are places to eat at that i would return to in a minute:

+blue plate taco
+the ivy by the shore
+pizzeria mozza

and yes…. i pretty much need to go on a major diet, now yesterday.

and the only downside to travel is that it only makes you want to travel more.  i have a few ideas of where i’d like to go next just not sure how it will happen….yet.

    #1 Cannot believe how much Ella is growing up! Always a doll but growing into such a young lady <3
    #2 Santa Monica is SO fun. We stopped there on our Cali trip a few years ago. Loved it!
    #3 Love your photos and how you managed to find little pops of color around the city. The bike pic is my favorite.

    Xo XO!
