This Post Includes a Mozzarella Bar. Need I say more?

First up, you all need to head over to Alaina’s Blog where I am guest posting today in one of the most fun series I have seen yet. Alaina asked several bloggers questions about what the movie of their life would be like, and to say it sparked delusions of grandeur and superstardom in yours truly would be an understatement. Go check it out, and tell my friend Alaina you say hi!

I realized reading my guest post on Sogni y Sorrisi last week that I never gave y’all an update on my last trip to LaLaLand. Pete and I had a wonderful time, as I mentioned there was a lot of couples matching…

Quality time with some pals.

Aren’t our friends adorable?

And…some seriously amazing eating.

First up, Joan’s on Third. My chef friend Brittany told us to get lunch here and yowza…so glad we did.Super cute.

And runneth over with delicious cupcakes, and sammies and mountains of CHEESE.

Aka my kind of spot.

Pete had some roast beef yumminess and I had the above delicious brie and ham thing.

And then we split macaroons…And then red velvet cupcakes. No big deal.

Also on our MUST GO list? Cafe Midi.

Located in cutecutecute homegoods store Maison Midi.

I literally wanted everything in there.

Especially these glasses, but had to refrain because I couldn’t figure out how to get them home. Luckily they have an online store!

Oh and look who else shops there, the cutest person in the universe!

p.s. In case there was any confusion, I did not take this picture. I would be happy just being near Rachel Bilson. Although not immediately adjacent because I would feel like The Jolly Green Giant. But I cannot IMAGINE standing and taking this picture while R.Bils gave you this face. I think everytime R.Bils makes this face, a puppy cries.


I know some of you might find this shocking, but I can be a little bit of a brat and kiiinnddd of a control freak. And so I kind of had a meltdown when Pete told me we were going to get sushi in a strip mall. BUT I WANNA MINGLE WITH CELEBS YOU GOOF. Well I am glad we did. Because this was honestly the best sushi I have ever had in my life. Ever. And I have had a lot of sushi. Even better? The rest of the week when we told local Lala-ers that we had eaten there, they were super impressed, all “How did you guys know about that place? That’s the best place in LaLa.” Ohhh, just my Knight In Shimmery Armor, Mr. Pete! That’s how! But seriously, go.

Osteria Mozza

I know you guys don’t all REALLY know me, but I feel like you understand that my love for cheese is real.

So let me tell you, when I show up to a restaurant that has a straight up Mozzerella Menu, I pretty much couldn’t have been happier unless Britney Spears was there feeding it to me.

This place is pretty hyped, it being a Mario Batali production and all, but it’s legit amazing.

Tune in tomorrow when I rant and wail about how I just can’t figure out why I am not losing any weight with the wedding rapidly approaching. And just ignore this post and give me a serious long-distance side-eye.

    Clicked over as soon as I saw mozza bar in the title. Um, amazing. Looks so good. Maybe we should open a mozza bar in Chicago? You do the interior design and I do the marketing and try to speak Italian to people… :) LA trip looks super fun and Maison Midi looks really neat.

    You and your friends look like you just stepped out of a J. Crew ad. I am insanely jealous of your stylish crowd. Also read your guest post. You made it through a Chicago winter armed with only dresses and jeans? Share your tricks if the trade!

    when i am in LA i make up that i see celebrities. if anyone even slightly resembles someone famous i say that i actually saw the person they look like. i tend to do really cool things like this at all times.
