L.A. Part II

The birthday girl's day we decided to wait in line and go to her favorite show, Chelsea Lately.
As you can see we both value fashion over comfort by our shoes while standing in line...
sometimes I question my intelligence. Unfortunately Chelsea Handler
was on her book tour, which we knew. But were excited to find out who the
surprise guest host was. When they announced Khloe Kardashian, we both
bust up laughing. Because earlier in the week Steph had joked that maybe my dreams 
would come true and I'd see a Kardashian. The whole story behind that is that when 
we used to live together I could not stop watching the train-wreck-of-a-show, The Kardashians.
Mostly I was intrigued by their ridiculousness, admittedly I was ashamed of such trashy television, 
but that sure didn't stop me. I have since cured that addiction and am now addicted to documentaries.

After having a good time at the show followed by a meet and photos
with Chelsea's side-kick Chuy we were on our way to explore more of L.A.
Naturally that included a cupcake stop at Georgetown Cupcake, so delicious!
From cupcakes we went to the beautiful LACMA. Unfortunately for us we got there 
about an hour too late to go inside, but fortunately the outside of the museum is just
as beautiful with all those palm trees and architecture. 

We ended the evening with dinner on the coast of Santa Monica, 
I'd say it was a grand birthday for Steph, one for the books!

L.A. Part I

 Last week was my friend's 30th birthday, so to kick off the start of a new
era we decided to head to L.A. for a little celebration. We started off our day with 
brunch at the swanky Tavern. It was the perfect way to start our festivities and it
being Easter Sunday we wanted a nice place to eat. After feasting on lemon ricotta pancakes
we made our way to a Dodger's game. It was such a fun time, the sun was shining, 
the game was good and of course we had some hotdogs, I swear they taste better at a baseball game.

The evening rolled around and we decided to do the infamous Hollywood walk, great 
people watching in my opinion. We ended the evening with some street tacos and
a drive up to the Griffith Observatory for some amazing star gazing and breathtaking sights of the 
city. I highly recommend the Griffith if you've never been before, it's free and 
the views up there are simply beautiful.
 ^^Brunching giddy.
 ^^The Tavern did not disappoint.
 ^^Ready to get our Dodger's spirit on.
^^Trying to tan my legs.
^^L.A. views.

Spring Outfit {Wish List}

Every Spring I tend to gravitate towards pastels, I think it's because
I've been wearing alot of dark shades for winter and I'm just ready for some
light and airy clothes.  Here are some of the pieces I've been eyeing.
1. Piperlime Sand Dollar Top
2. Loeffler Randall Mint Clutch
3. J. Crew White Pencil Skirt
4. Sole Society Caity Wedge

Well hello there! Spring has finally decided to make her
actual arrival here in Utah, and my oh my does this make me happy!

It wasn't until a few years ago that I realized I get SAD {seasonal affective disorder}
during the winter months.  So I am usually very well prepared with trips to sunny
locations to help me get through those long winter months.  This year
work was extra busy and I just didn't get around to a trip. So needless to say,
I'm thrilled that we've moved onto some sunshine!

Here are some snaps as of late, I'm now headed outside for a bike ride.
