Valentines Day weekend was GORGEOUS. L.A. had a bit of rain the past few weeks, so it was a nice surprise to greet the sun and enjoy the warmth. I got so used to layering and wearing tights, I didn’t even realize how hot I was gonna be until I actually went outside in this outfit. I’m not gonna lie, I sweating a little.
The weekend was FOOD-FILLED. We hit up the first ever LA Street Food Fest on Saturday and tried food from at least 5 of the gourmet food trucks. We had a major food coma afterwards, napped for 3 hours, then woke up and had a late salad and pasta dinner at CPK.
On Sunday, we discovered a hole in the wall pizza joint near my place – FRESH BAKED, CHEESY, YUMMY GOODNESS! It’s rare to find a good pizza-by-the-slice place here in LA, and this scored bonus points for being 3 minutes from my house. As if we haven’t had enough food already, we stopped by my family party shortly after, and of course, there was more food there – fried chicken, steak, spinach walnut salad, brownies, berries and cream, etc.!
FATTIES. I know.
For our official Valentines dinner-date, we tried Umami Burger for the first time. Umami Burger is an ultra-hip, upscale burger joint in Hollywood. Let me just say, JUICIEST burger I’ve ever had. It was DELISH paired with Thailand’s Nakhon beer!
Overall, it was a chill, casual weekend. Nothing fancy or special…but well-spent quality time with my boyfriend. He’s amazing because I can do everything with him or nothing with him. Either way, I’m happy. =)
