This was the absolute perfect weekend. After weeks of running around like crazy people, Markel and I finally had 1 weekend of almost nothing. =)
Friday, I met up with a friend who was proposing the next day! (eek!!) We went over some last minute details at Susina Bakery in Beverly Hills. BEST latte I’ve ever had and the most amazing white chocolate cake!
After our little pow wow, I picked up Mulberry Pizza for dinner with Markel. A romantic dinner for two ❤ We’ve been craving New York Style Pizza all week and it we FINALLY filled that craving. Mulberry has 5 locations in southern California and…boy…it is FANTASTIC.
We spent the night hanging out, talking, drinking, watching a movie and spending much needed 1:1 time together. For the first time in a long time, it felt like we were 23 again having a super fun night together. Usually we’re so exhausted that we go straight to bed or watch a few shows in silence~ destressing from our week.
I guess Mulberry Pizza + wine + netflix is exactly what the doctor ordered =)
After the proposal, we walked along the canals and went to Canali cafe on Washington Blvd. We all celebrated together in one big group and just got to really love the newly engaged couple. ❤ Canali was aiite, but only because I hated our 1 waiter. The chai latte was amazing and I loved Markel’s meatball sandwich and my tofu sandwich.
My adorable hubby. xoxo as we waited for our food. ❤
We spent the rest of the afternoon shopping for our Halloween party. ❤ We had lots of fun eating, drinking and carving pumpkins!
We made the most delicious Hallo-Tini’s =) They tasted like orange creamsicles and you couldn’t even taste the alcohol! SOOOOOOOO deliiiiic xoxo
Our dear friend also made homemade whoopie pies that were TO DIE FOR.
ANDDDD for the grand dessert finale, another friend brought Big Man Bakes Cupcakes!!
(I was so hungry I forgot to take pictures of the real food…oops! lol)
Party decorations! =) This is the first time I’ve ever used the spider web decorations and it was the perfect touch! I’m definitely buying them again next year. ❤
Pumpkin Carving! =)
My pumpkin has a perm. LOL
What I would look like at my mom’s age! hahaha Biggest Korean Perm for the girl that LOVES volume in her hair. LOL
Sunday has been the best day to unwind from the weekend and just relax. We woke up this morning and named it Markel’s day. We did only relaxing things. =) He’s been working so hard the past few weeks…MONTHS really… that today was all about him!
My au natural makeup look for today~
Today was the day that our good friends moved into our building!! We are SO EXCIIIIITED!! xoxo Can’t wait for the fun to commence! ❤
Markel and I grabbed brunch at Doughland a block away (we’re trying to walk more and explore our ‘hood). This restaurant was a great surprise. The food was SUPER good, the service was impeccable and the hefe beer was aaamaaazingggg. Markel and I have totally decided that this was our new “spot” for weekend brunches, dinners, and weekday happy hours! =)
Coming home from brunch =) our last pic of the day. xo
We spent the rest of the day/night watching football (Markel) and Sons of Anarchy (me). There are so many TV series’ that I’ve been dying to watch lately!!
