finally no labor on labor day

Olivia and I decided to take a spontaneous Labor Day Weekend trip since we amazingly didn't have work!
We started our little road trip late on Friday night, 
so after plenty of little snacks and coffee/energy drinks to keep us awake, 
we arrived in the valley around 2 am.
Saturday morning, we woke up and had delicious bagels at Bagel Bagel Cafe 
in Porter Ranch where Olivia's sister works.
Afterwards, we drove with the windows down and the music up to Malibu for a beach day!
It was absolutely gorgeous outside.
After the beach, we went to get our nails done (I finally got the mint green I've been wanting!!) 
and headed back to Olivia's parents house for a fun BBQ.
The food was incredible: hummus, baba ganoush, taboule, eggplant salad, veggie burgers,
skinny girl margaritas, and someone brought Diddy Riese for dessert!!
Sunday was filled with fun.
Our friend Oren had a pool party that turned into a night time party as well.
I was carried out of the kitchen on a bar stool and thrown into the pool...totally bat mitzvah style.
We went home to change into our night time clothes and stopped at In-N-Out on the way back...
might I just add that adding the sliced peppers to the "grilled cheese" changes everything.
It was incredible.

We left Monday morning at 6 am and got back to Arizona around 1 pm.
I was insanely tired, but the view of the sun rising on our drive out was beautiful, and it was great to have a full day ahead of us once we got back home.
I hope you all had a fun Labor Day Weekend!
I don't think I've ever celebrated Labor Day...usually I'm working, so it was fabulous!
