Malibu Sunday

This past weekend was so needed. I slept in every day, finished up the paperwork for a 300 person wedding this Saturday, cleaned out my closet, got a Thai massage, and took multiple naps. Last week just kicked my butt. Oh yeah, and it was 100 degrees here in LA and yesterday's walk through for an August wedding out at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu was the perfect opportunity to drag the husband along so we could head to the beach after the meeting. He crashed a birthday party and snagged some corn on the cob while I was in the 2 hour meeting. Trust me, it wasn't as bad as it sounds--he's such a cool guy that he makes friends wherever he goes, so he was actually offered the corn on the cob and invited to the party!
"Crashing" just sounds more exciting. He never fails to create an adventure wherever he goes!

Calamigos Ranch as 3 or 4 locations that are gorgeous for weddings, yet the Ranch House, where my August bride is getting married is my favorite. It is like an enchanted forest with the waterfalls, whimsical statuary, and twinkle lights hanging down from the gigantic oak trees. It is so great to have a venue that is so spectacular on its own you really don't have to do much in terms of decor. It's going to be a great wedding. With a gorgeous venue, great food, and the premium bar package chosen, you can't go wrong!

After our meeting, the husband and I went to one of the beaches in Malibu, along with everyone else in Los Angeles. It was waaaaay too crowded for us. Ugh. We didn't want to double back to get to the Thai restaurant on PCH that we love, so we settled for the Malibu Inn. Settled is the right term. My fish tacos were bad and the service was worse.

All in all though, it was a lovely Sunday.
