City of Angels...

Well, we're home from a wonderful weekend away visiting our very loved and dear friends Mark & Mere. I thought that I would break up the weekend into a few posts since we did so many things in such a short amount of time. We spent the weekend eating, laughing, having cocktails, wedding dress shopping, sightseeing and just hanging out. It was perfect in every way and I am so thankful that they decided to stay in LA over moving to NYC. We are soo thankful to have them only a very quick plane flight away! Our flight was delayed getting into LA so we headed directly to the Grove where Mere and I had an appointment with J Crew Bridal to look at Wedding dresses for her Big Day!

The famous Grove Shopping was so beautiful and festive for the Holidays! I was in heaven! There were reindeer in the sky, Santa's Gingerbread house, Snow Flakes, festive music and even a live Holiday performance!

Santa had gone home for the day, much to my disappointment.

Only in LA... a full on production in the middle of an outdoor mall!

As soon as Mere got off work and met us at the Grove, the men were sent on their merry way while we looked for the perfect dress!

Sorry folks.... private viewing will have to wait for the big day!

The lovely Bridal Suite Jewels to accessorize with..

They did have a selection of famous movie costumes on display... so I figured the Gone With the Wind Dress was a fair trade for not showing you the gowns she tried on ;)

The wedding gown shopping was a success and I think she might have found the one! If not I am more than happy to do it all over again! We spent the rest of the night catching up over dinner and drinks hanging out with these two always a blast.

My loves... Mr. Jones and the bride to be.

Happy as a clam.



Awesome local bar Birds!

Mark & Mere took us to soo many great restaurants and bars while we were there Malo being our first stop for dinner, amazing unique tacos, and Birds their local bar which definitely has a little bit of something for everybody, lets just say while we were there, we saw a hula hoop competition, a few dancers climb on the bar, a bum reading a newspaper with a flashlight at the bar, a birthday party, and to top it all off it was ladies night with drink bar ever... hahaha... seriously though we had a great first night.. can't wait to fill you all in on the rest of our weekend.. missed blogging and can't wait to catch up on all that I've missed!! Happy Monday is OVER!!

XOXO- Miss V
