Connor and I spent the weekend in one of my favorite cities, Los Angeles, with some of my favorite people.  If you’ve been reading the blog for awhile you might remember my friend Sam, that I actually started the blog with back in our law school days.  Well Sam now lives in LA, and planned an amazing girls weekend for our good friends. Some of the highlights were…

-We used airbnb for the first time and found the cutest house to rent just a few doors down from Sam.  I already can’t wait to plan another trip using the site!

-Sam took us to one of her favorite restaurants, Gracias Madre, and we couldn’t have loved it any more! It’s actually a vegan Mexican restaurant, and despite the fact that none of us are vegan we were obsessed with the fresh and flavorful dishes.  The cocktail menu was also amazing!

-A trip to Venice Beach was just what we needed coming from Chicago in February.  We had an awesome lunch at Venice Ale House, and spent the afternoon shopping on Abbot Kinney.

-We got awesome (and affordable) massages at The Now, where the decor is as rejuvenating as the treatments.

-Took in the amazing views from the Griffith Observatory.

-Enjoyed delicious sushi at Sugar Fish.

Oh, and on our way back to Chicago we bumped into Rachel Zoe, one of my all time favorite interviews, at LAX on her way to New York Fashion Week. The perfect end to an amazing few days in LA!
