Yesterday, My girl Abby and I decided to take a little break from the 4-day-long party that has been this trip. You gotta relax a little on vacation, right?

By the way, if you missed previous posts from this trip, check them all out here: Venice Beach (Part I & Part II), Hollywood (Part I & Part II), and my favorite restaurant… seriously, the best.

We tried out this little cafe near our house called Solar De Cahuenga. Not only did I see the love of my life [comedian: Chris D’elia], but I enjoyed a crepe and some freshly-pressed juice.

Good Start Crepe: Eggs, Roma tomatoes, spinach & onions, with hot sauce [instead of sour cream] with a side of fruit.

Another one of my favorite Los Angeles activities: hiking the Runyon Canyon Trails. The weather here is so perfect; it makes me want to spend the entire day outside.. so different from Texas [wow].

The weather has crazy-intense control over my daily happiness… part of the reason I’m moving to Los Angeles ASAP. I absolutely LOVE this place and the way it makes me feel on a daily basis.

Runyon Canyon, Los Angeles Runyan Canyon, Los Angeles We decided to stay in and grill out on our badass balcony [more about our house here]. We grilled Lemon-Herb Chicken [found here] in tin foil, whipped up some quinoa [Trader Joe’s] and brussels sprouts, and drank some vino. And enjoyed the weather and the view.. of course.

Venice Beach, CA: Part I

Okay so, I’m never leaving this place. It is the perfect mix of beach, good food, good shopping, and weirdos. Here’s day numero uno in pics, ya dig?

We are staying in this perfect little apartment [found here] on the beach in a complex called The Ellison. This place is one hundred years old.. so freaking cool, right?

I got the Huevos Cancun:: three organic eggs scrambled with cilantro, topped with roasted corn, black bean salsa, and fresh avocado.
