A Pizza Date

I have come to realize that I don’t give pizza as much credit as it deserves. I have always been a pasta girl…and most likely always will be. But, within the last few months, I have discovered just how much I love pizza. (Want to guess how much? I’ll tell you…A lot.) And that it is becoming a very close second to pasta.

Also, cold pizza is probably my favorite. But, a pizza like this one that I had on a dinner date with my sister at 800 degrees also serves my craving just perfectly too!

Hello Spring

Happy first day of spring! I love, love, love winter…but I am so ready for spring! The weather here has been a bit ugly with lots of grey, fog, and cold breezes. But, the sun managed to break through today for this lovely occasion and it feels so good! I am ready for dresses and skirts, and flowers everywhere. So, hopefully the sunny weather sticks around for good so I can unpack the suitcase under my bed of spring/summer clothes and pack my winter clothes away. Until then, here are a few pictures that have helped me get excited for the spring that is, hopefully, here to stay!

P.S. A lady bug landed on me today…I am hoping that means it really is here today! Happy Spring to each and every one of you. I hope you’re as excited as I am!

Sunday Funday at The Beverly Hills Hotel

“Her recommendations for a campsite were totally unsuitable. There were no outlets. And there was dirt, and bugs, and… and it rains there. So anyway, we’ve found a place that’s much more us: the Beverly Hills Hotel.”

 – Phyllis, Troop Beverly Hills

Caroline and I went to the Beverly Hills Hotel last Sunday for a lovely brunch, as a part of our Quest for the Best Breakfast in Los Angeles. You can check what we had for breakfast out on her blog.  The Beverly Hills Hotel is a legendary spot in the BH.  It has been officially named Beverly Hills first Historic Landmark.  Her nickname: The “Pink Palace”.

^ Bungalows!! Bungalow is such a fun word to say. Say it. See, it’s fun!


I tried to find some good gossip stories about the Beverly Hills Hotel but I couldn’t find any!  I guess, “What happens at the BH Hotel, stays at the BH Hotel”.  If only those Bungalow walls could talk….
