The Luskey/Narayan Weekend-'O-Fun!

This past weekend was a B-L-A-S-T. My college roommate/bridesmaid, Alison Rae Hardin Narayan (aka Ali Rae) and her darling husband, Rishi Narayan, came to visit the Santa Monica Luskeys! It had been over a year (shameful, I know) since we'd seen each other and it was a blissful reunion from the moment we saw them waiting under the Delta sign in Arrivals to the moment we watched them disappear into the Departures security line. (The latter was definitely the worst part of the weekend.)

The weekend was an epic eat-fest starting with an evening of tapas at our newly discovered Bar Pinxto and continuing the next morning with some gourmet coffee from Caffe Luxxe followed by lunch at Malibu Seafood - all the while catching up, discussing the future, solving the world's problems and partaking in some good ole fashioned jewelry shopping! Saturday night we were treated to a romantic double date by our gracious house guests at Gjelina and in the spirit of keeping the eat-fest going until we had to leave for the airport, we brunched at Jack N' Jill's Sunday morning!

We finished the weekend committing to an annual (if not semi-annual) weekend reunion, promising to begin a master cleanse on Monday, and signing an arranged marriage document for our future children. All in all, a huge win for The Santa Monica Luskeys!
