A last hurrah

As if he hadn't already spoiled me enough throughout this pregnancy, Matt treated me to an amazing Saturday in LA a couple weekends ago. We figured it'd be our last trip down South before the baby so it was a last hurrah of sorts. The day was perfect! It started off with a leisurely morning and a delicious pancake breakfast made by Matt. Then we hit the road and ended up at a day spa, where Matt gifted me a prenatal massage and facial. (I told you I am spoiled.) Oh my goodness, it was heavenly. And that is a major understatement.
Nothing quite like a big baby bump sticking out of a luxurious robe!
We did a little pre-birthday shopping afterward (Matt and I are both September babies) and then headed West to the beach. It was a bit chilly on the coast so we just held hands and walked barefoot along the shoreline for awhile, enjoying the serenity of the ocean and each other's company.
Then it was time to grab a treat for our impending picnic. Sprinkles fit the bill quite nicely.
We capped off the night with a symphony and fireworks at the Hollywood Bowl. Matt and I loved last summer's Tchaikovsky Spectacular so much that we decided to make summer symphonies at the Hollywood Bowl a yearly tradition. This time, the LA Philharomonic delivered an incredible performance of Fantasia -- providing the score while select scenes played on the big screens. The music was beautiful and it turns out Fantasia is highly entertaining (my 7-year-old self didn't think so). And really, you can't go wrong when fireworks are involved. It was a lovely date!
In case you missed it last year, this is what the Hollywood Bowl looks like. Check out the Hollywood sign underneath the lights on the hills in the background. It's such a pretty setting right in the middle of all the LA craziness.


  1. Wow, you really are spoiled! That looks like SUCH a fun day all around. :) Glad you got the star treatment before the baby comes... you deserve it!

  2. AW this is such an amazing last hurrah before the baby! Good job Matt! :D

He wisked me away from work that day and down to Mesquite, Nevada where he had a massage lined up for me (it was my first massage ever). It was HEAVENLY!! He had dinner and a motel stay lined up as well. Those were our wild and crazy days long ago! :) Now, we are busy with our cute children and poor as ever!...but happier than ever too! :) You and Matt are sooooo cute!
