probably my favorite thing about LA was this stack of oreo pancakes (they call it the black magic on the menu) we enjoyed at the griddle. why had i never thought about that combo before? so dangerous. and so so delicious.

    I just found your lovely blog! I am so happy I did. I am originally from the suburbs of DC…miss it everyday.

    I would love to speak more with you about you possibly being featured as a mod mama on life in mod. Let me know!

    I loooveee CA. Now I am craving In N' Out. YIKES.

  46. Oh my, oreo pancakes! Yum! Beautiful photos as usual. It looks like you're having an amazing time. xx

  47. 21 Choices! You were in my neighborhood :). Hope Pasadena did itself justice compared to all of the other spots you visited in LA. Great photos! And I'm an LA native and have never been to the griddle…but those oreo pancakes are warranting a visit very soon!

  48. Anything from the Griddle is dangerously good.

  49. Kelle

    it's so funny to see l.a. through the eyes of someone who had never been here. i've lived here all my life and i think sometimes i take it for granted and get too wrapped up in wishing i could be somewhere on the east coast for a change. especially all your tweets about the lack of humidity – one other thing i take for granted! :)

  50. Mariela

    Beautiful California, love it!

  51. Kalani

    Do you take these picts with your phone? amazing! fun times! Where did you get your baby sling I need one asap!

  52. haley

    Wonderful photos as always! Looks like a great trip :) Eleanor is too precious!

  53. Only you could make takeout look so beautiful! Glad to see it looks like you guys are enjoying your time!

  54. Rach

    How do you stay so slim? Very lucky!

  55. Hannah

    gorgeous photos, looks like you're having a fab time


  56. When on your vacations do you get stopped a lot by followers of your blog/instagram? I'm sure with your 78k followers it has to happen right?! Are you used to it? Does it freak your husband out? And does it bother you when people recognize Eleanor on the street?
    Always wondered what the "famous bloggers" think about their fans.


  57. izznit

    Will be trying those pancakes for the first time this week thanks to you, so excited! Embarrassed to say as I'm an LA native but your IG feed introduced me to a few new places!

  58. Meghan
