Happy 1st Day of Summer y’all!
So excited to announce that we’re leaving for our honeymoon this weekend woOoHoOoo!!!
It’s only taken us a mere 6 months after getting hitched back in January to plan this vacation and while I toyed with tropical locales (for him), cultural foodie destinations (for me), we finally settled on the best of both worlds… Europe here we come!
Happy Friday luvahs!!!
It’s been birthday after birthday, gathering with my girls and eating up a storm all over SoCal. I love that we make an effort to not only celebrate in style, but to find new and notable restaurants with a little more to them than just fine dining. Caitlin’s birthday took us down to the Strand House in Manhattan Beach, where libations overflowed into beautiful ocean views and dinner took us right into after hours dancing.
Here’s what’s on the menu today:
Happy Friday hunnies!
Today’s #foodpornfriday features a SUPER special surprise anniversary dinner from the fellas who have brought you past Chef’s Bet Dinners here, here, here, here, here, and here! Phew! Yup, these husbands have TRULY outdone themselves once again for our dear friends Viet and Fawn’s 12 year wedding anniversary dinner.
Having been raised in Southern California since I was 5 years old, I’ve grown quite accustomed to seeing towering palm trees every which way I turn. So it was no surprise that my entire courtyard, literally covered in miniature palms, completely sold the house for me. Something about the rich vibrant color and organic shapes of the oversized leaves just screams retro glamour!
We ventured out to Downtown Santa Ana for Cinco de Mayo hoping to get our drink and grub on at any proper Mexican spot, but sadly, everything was booked for a last minute reservation that day bringing us to Eqeko Peruvian Cuisine as a backup.
I have been designing this incredible residential estate in Huntington Harbor for a solid 3 years now and while the clients are taking a mini-break from remodeling I’m sharing some much overdue sneak peeks into how the home’s shaping up so far…
