After our wedding since my parents paid for it, we thought we’d take them on a trip to Los Angeles as a thank you. We rented a cute cottage in West Hollywood. My mom ended up not coming because we wouldn’t allow her husband at the time to come (long story). I’m sure she regrets her decision now! Anyway my dad still came and it was a great time. We ate all over LA which though I even lived there years ago for a summer I never really did.Also finally went to Santa Monica! Which again had never done. I’m only sad we never made it over to Malibu even though I’ve been there as a kid I barely remember it. My hubs also didn’t get to see Venice Beach. I loved sitting outside Urth Cafe having hot chocolate being a huge Entourage fan that I am (they were always there on the show). I made sure to look all celeb like putting my sunglasses on and my hair looked amazing lol. I also took a random selfie before heading to Santa Monica, and another picture my hubs took of me in Beverly hills at Villa Blanca which are still two of my favorite pics. The cottage we rented was a huge inspiration for our renovated home, seriously our kitchen will look very similar! Also the best part of our trip was going on the Dearly Departed tour! I love horror and am obsessed with all things like serial killers, murders, deaths, etc so obviously I loved it. Anyway Los Angeles is great if not superficial as hell. I’m happy I got to share one of my favorite places with my hubs.
When in Los Angeles of course we had to go to Mario Batali’s restaurant Osteria Mozza! I remember thinking a ricotta ravioli with an egg in it? Seems sort of interesting. Interesting and delicious it was!
