|Santa Monica Pier|
Did you miss me??? I know I have been MIA for a few days, well a week, but for good reason! My family and I were on a Spring Vacation to my homeland of Los Angeles and then off to Vegas for a Very Special Vegas Wedding, Baby!!! And, my baby made his debut as the ring bearer du jour!!! (And he did a good job, too). Yes, I was in LaLa land and made it to all my favorite eateries, including In an; Out, Fatburger, and Roscoe's and even worked in a new spot, that was quite delish: Paul Martin's in El Segundo( which is truly the new it area in town). If you make it there, be sure and try the Linguine with Prawns...OH MY Lord, it was divine! My hubby and I also managed to work in a trip to the LA Zoo with our fabulous 2 year-old and Santa Monica Pier (I also checked out the new outdoor shopping center too--very nice, worth checking out). Then we were off to Vegas, where we stayed in the bright and attractive City Center at the Aria(rooms were fab, but the vanilla pumping through the lobby/casino drove me nuts, could be the pregnancy, but mostly it was just over the top). If you are all about the high-end retail, then City Center is for you! And if you are getting hitched anytime soon, and you want a Vegas wedding minus all the glitz and lights, you should definitely check out the Springs Preserve(which is where my friend's wedding was held--BEAUTIFUL and unexpected for Vegas). It was an amazing, relaxing, tummy-filling trip! Makes me want to be on Spring Break at least once a month!!!
Before signing off, I have to send out a great big ol' congratulations to the newlyweds, Dyan and Derrick! It was a perfect affair and we wish you all the best in Love and Life as you venture into the journey of Marriage together!
