Where's The Food?

Since the season wrapped 3 weeks ago, life has been CRAZY! I do have a few recipes I've been meaning to post, but for today I thought I'd share a few photos from what's been keeping me so busy! 

First stop...48 hours in Chicago!

After being on hiatus for 2 days, I planned a surprise trip to Chicago for my friends baby shower. This was possibly the hardest secret I've ever kept.  When I got to town on Sat night, I headed straight to my fav pizza place. It wouldn't be a trip to Chicago w/o some deep dish!

Before pulling off the greatest surprise ever, I met up for brunch with some old Chicago friends that happened to be in town. Look at those pancakes!

The mom-to-be looked beautiful & was quite surprised when I just walked into her shower!

I was also able to surprise the amazing hosts!

Up next...back to LA to prep for Visitor #1

This lovely lady & I have been trying to plan her first visit to LA for so long...I almost couldn't believe she was here! We did tons of stuff around LA, but my absolute favorite part included my first trip to Malibu Wines!

This place was AMAZING & a great place to spend the afternoon. The wine was delicious, the scenery was beautiful & I couldn't beat the company!

The trip came to an end with an unlimited Champaign Brunch at The Four Seasons in Santa Barbara.
This was just plate #1 of 3!

No time for rest... Visitor #2 was coming in less than 4 days!

This decision to come visit was quite spontaneous, but I was SO happy to have yet another one of my closest friends come visit for the first time!

We managed to squeeze in a hike, a trip to the beach, Grauman's Chinese Theater, Santa Monica, Malibu, The Hollywood sign, some of my fav restaurants & celebrate Cinco de Mayo.  It was a whirlwind but awesome few days!

So that's what I've been up to. I have another big trip coming up in less than a week, but I WILL be posting some recipes soon!
