Los Angeles- WEHO Part Two

I thought my traveling/exploring was done for the year, and yet I have one of my ALL-TIME favorite ever travel posts to share with you! This reminds me you just never know what adventure lies around the corner. The first part was a joy to write, but I’m especially excited to share part two!!! (You can check out that first part here).

Sunday morning, I woke up and went for another nine-miler. I turned up my worship music and listened to it the entire time I ran. My favorite worship song is “In Christ Alone”. What’s your favorite? We wanted to try out a church in the area like Hillsong or C3 LA, but with the driving/activity we had planned for the day it would have been hard to do it all. Next time for sure!!!

We had been looking forward all weekend to trying out Jessica Biel’s restaurant Au Fudge. This is designed for couples/parents with kids, but we couldn’t resist. Everything about it screamed “Basic girl’s paradise”.

Basically how it works- you can choose to drop your kids off for the duration of your meal and au pairs watch them in the cutest little daycare center. They have tons of activities year round and if you want to dine with your kiddos, there is a precious list of delicious choices for them too. The menu options  for adults (especially the drinks) are hilariously witty & cute. Go check out that link above to see their adorable list of momma friendly options!

The food was fabulous as well. And incredibly photogenic!

  • Bacon Breakfast Sandwhich: Cheddar, avocado, rosemary digonaise, fried egg, brioche bun served with breakfast potatoes & melon
  • Chicken and Waffles: Buttermilk Waffles & Crispy fried chicken nuggets, spicy maple syrup
  • Vegan Hash: Potatoes, spinach, avocado, & fennel “sausage”

For drinks: Dani tried their bloody mary, I tried the grapefruit mimosa and coffee, and Tammy and Dani tried their green tea matcha latte!

For dessert: We couldn’t resist the vanilla birthday cake milkshake. Tell me that is not just the most darling dessert you have ever seen! They even gave us a couple pieces of complimentary fudge after which I found to be the sweetest thing ever (PUN TOTALLY INTENDED!).

After Brunch, Tammy took us to Runyon Canyon Park. This is where a lot of celebs will go hiking. See, this is why it’s great to go with someone who knows the area, because I would have never known this place even existed!!!!

* We didn’t actually spot anyone, but we speculated those covered with scarves, hats, and sunglasses on a cloudy day were probably “someone”.

img_8748-1

It was an AWESOME hike. The views of LA were insane. The clearness of the skyline was apparently a rare sight. Even though we were a bit unlucky with the rain, it meant we were able to see this beautiful overlook! But HINT: go to the bathroom before because there are not many options (meaning none) on the hike. I was doing the potty dance the whole way down the mountain.

img_8516-1img_8517img_8745-1img_8637-1img_8746img_8747img_8744

The pups we saw were SO. CUTE. I had serious puppy fever after the hike. I’m pretty sure Tammy was considering kidnapping a french bulldog at one point too 😜hahaha.

img_8809img_8808

After our hike, we went back to the Air bnb and got ready for the rest of the day. I am a neat freak right before I go to bed (like all dishes must be done, all rooms must be clean and picked up), but throughout the day the rooms in our home look like this- especially the bedroom/closet/and bathroom. DJ says, “Tornado Mack went through” . Dani kindly snagged this picture for her snap story- HA. I swear it was clean 20 minutes before she took this!

img_8515-1

Once we were ready for the day we headed to Melrose Place!!! We saw Fred Segal’s (the original department store), and tons of other infamous shopping locations!

We had to stop in Magnolia Bakery, just because it’s too darn cute. Tammy grabbed an ice coffee while we were in there, and we just snagged a whole bunch of pictures! I hear their cupcakes are divine, and I’d love to try them sometime!

img_8643img_8644img_8640img_8641img_8749

And of course…. we couldn’t leave West Hollywood without getting pictures by these famous  walls…

img_8737-1img_8507img_8506img_8813img_8754img_8504img_8803img_8511img_8509img_8510img_8514img_8513img_8508img_8796img_8797-1

Or stopping in D A S H! (prices were not quite as bad as I had expected!!)

img_8646img_8647

It was a bit chilly and I was craving a coffee or a pick-me-up by this point in the afternoon. All the coffee shops were out the door so we stumbled across Alfred’s Tea. This is apparently a super famous place, but we just wanted some coffee or tea gosh darnit. It was a long line, but Tammy had stopped in another store and said to take our time getting something to drink. Dani had her first bubble tea and I tried the kamboucha! By the time I got up to the cash register, I was feeling the cold drink more than the hot. It was crowded in there!

img_8648

Such a sassy little tea shop!

img_8649img_8691-1

For dinner, we had reservations at PUMP (another of Lisa Vanderpump’s restaurants). We didn’t hit Villa Rosa- the third and last, but maybe next time! I can’t describe truly in words how spectacular PUMP was. I swear, it was easily the most stunningly decorated restaurant I have ever been to. Think- garden oasis, chandeliers, fairytale all wrapped up in one place. Plus, the menu wasn’t outrageously expensive. (Yes- expensive, but not like you would expect somewhere like this to cost!). The food was divine.

img_8502img_8759img_8763img_8483img_8756img_8757

AND GUESS WHO WE BUMPED INTO!?!?!? That’s right- Conrad Ricamora (Oliver from How to Get Away With Murder). I think I freaked out more about seeing him than the Bachelor contestants. Ok, it’s a toss up. But he was SO sweet about getting a picture with us. I always hate to be that person, but come on, CONRAD RICAMORA!

img_8800

For dinner, they start you off with artisan bread with salted butter and chives with olive pieces in the bread. I’m such a big olive fan, so anything with olives…send it my way! I think I ate half the bread myself (thanks for helping a little, Dani). Tammy- next time, I’m making you try it. 😜

ALSO… SALTED BUTTER! See! **If you didn’t hear my rant in a previous post, basically I think salting your bread and butter is the BEST and only way to eat it, and apparently Farallon and PUMP agree 😉

While waiting for our table, they offered us drinks from the bar, but I didn’t finish mine and had to resort back to good ole’ red wine. This place and the ambiance demanded it!

Tammy and I had the Tiger Prawn and Farro Salad. This included tiger prawns tossed with farro grains, baby arugula, dried fruits, scallions, cucumbers, micro cilantro, and candied pecans in a light lemon citronette. This may be one of my favorite meals I’ve ever had. I am definitely going to try to recreate it at home.

I also ordered a side of the wasabi cauliflower mashed potatoes. Not gonna brag, but I think the ones I make are a bit better 😎

img_8791img_8762

Dani tried the chicken milanese with lightly breaded chicken breast, pan-fried with fresh lemon, served with Lisa’s homemade potato salad with scallions and turkey bacon and a small arugula salad with pine nuts, tomatoes, and red onion.

I have to say- Lisa’s homemade potato salad may be the best potato salad I have ever had!😋

On Monday morning, I ran about six miles at 6:30 AM then we scrambled to get the air b n’ b clean before getting on the road. We stopped into Urth Caffe one last time to grab some quick on-the-go fuel.

img_8776

I tried their green tea matcha muffin  with their green tea match latte (JJ, I know you’re freaking out, girl- yes, it was the muffin was as good as it sounds!). Like I said in my last post, it would be DANGEROUS if this place was nearby. I would probably live here!

img_8764img_8768img_8772

At 9 am we were on the road and heading to Warner Bros. studio!

img_8486-2img_8773

Lucky for you, I’m going to take you on the tour with us! We were able to see the back and front set of the studio- and it was MAMMOTH! I had no idea this studio was so huge. You see the staircase at the very back of the alley? That’s where the famous spiderman kiss was filmed!

img_8774

Look familiar?? Luke’s Diner!

img_8495

How about this one? Miss Patty’s dance studio!

Mona’s House from Pretty Little Liars

THE GILMORE GIRLS’ HOUSE!

The famous Gazebo from Gilmore Girl’s is below too!

This is the ladder autographed that Lady Gaga jumped off of from the Super Bowl this year!

img_8779

I loved seeing the Dexter chair and the Full House “house”. Although, we have the real painted ladies right here in SF!

img_8476img_8488-1

We were able to see where they stored all the bat mobiles!

img_8477img_8475-1¨

Dani and I did the green screen for Harry Potter and were incorporated into a video- it was so much fun and the nerd was just oozing out of us!

img_8801img_84912fiy1dtmabo2077tkewr4gf5rqicluxfihkiwhr87pjerzvaxx.jpeg

Here is my imitation of Phoebe’s famous run right where she did it!

And our favorite- getting this picture on the Friend’s set ❤

img_8492-1

It was about a three hour tour, and so worth it. I can’t begin to even cover all the epic knowledge you learn about the pure magic of creating a movie/TV show. My mind was blown! Hands-down worth your time!

We were super hungry after but didn’t want to take too long to get lunch. Tammy found this darling cafe called Olive & Thyme, and we ordered food to go! Tammy said it may have been the best tuna sandwich of her life and the avocado toast with poached eggs that I had was absolutely superb. The coffee was not so great though. If you go, get a latte instead of just plain ole’ joe!

img_8595-1img_8587img_8783img_8589img_8593

On our way out we spotted Katie Holmes. We walked right by them and I took about a million photos secretly and to my elation (and surprise) a couple turned out!

img_8586img_8786

We then headed back, leaving behind the marvelous City of Angels, but taking some unforgettable memories home with us.

img_8782

We hit some horrible weather on the way home and it reminded me of gripping the steering wheel as I did so many times in Ohio. I was under the impression this didn’t happen in California? We looked on the news the next morning and the route we had taken home was impassable and entirely flooded. We got out of the thick of it just in time! (We also made it home for Bachelor just in time).

Truly I could not have asked for a better first experience of LA! I can’t wait to go back. Thanks for sharing in our adventure with us!!!

  1. Why do I always feel hungry when I visit your Blog Mackenzie, great photos, I enjoyed the journey with you too.

    I have a few favorite Songs and yes “In Christ Alone”, is powerful and heart touching, when I was going through a really hard time in my life God gave me the Scriptures below and the Song uplifts me greatly too, I hope your blessed by them.

    Isaiah 43:1-3 – Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression,you will not be burned up the flames will not consume you. “For I am the LORD your God The Holy One of Israel your Saviour.”

    Jeremiah 29 :11-12 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of Peace and not of evil, to give you a Future and a Hope.

    Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the Children of Men.

    Christian Love Always – Anne.

    1. Wow, thank you for sharing Anne!! Isaiah 43:1-3 is actually my “life” verse! God really used it to get me through some of the hardest times of my life as well. I so appreciate you sharing this- it was very sweet of you and I’m thankful to have met such a sincere hearted sister in Christ! ❤

  2. Omg the Warner Brothers Studio tour!!!! AH how incredible!!! I’m sitting here with chills scrolling down through your pictures and seeing HOW COOL it is! I love that they let you actually into some of the sets, its nice that they make it semi interactive like that. How does the tour work, do you have to buy tickets in advance? pick a time slot? is there a whole group of people or do you get to wander freely. So many questions lol Oh HELLOO green tea matcha muffin!!! I read “green tea matcha” and was like yup commenting on this until I read like three words over and you already shouted me out 😉 You know me so well! All those cute cafes, bakeries, and amazing restaurants….did your friend just know of them/have been there before or were some of them just kind of like “this place looks good, lets go in” Every single place you guys chose to go to looks amazing. And starstruck much!! Its crazy to think that these ‘famous’ people can just happen to be right where you are! I mean, I guess it is where they live after all, but still- definitely awesome. I feel like an LA trip can’t be completed without seeing at least 1 famous person lol I didn’t even know about these Paul Smith walls, but those are some perfect photo op back drops! Love the pink wall, you gals are so pretty in pink 🙂 I love that you shared your LA trip with us! Wheres the next Cali location trip so that I can live vicariously through you!?! ❤ ❤ ❤

    1. GIRLLLL. If you get the chance you HAVE to go to Warner Bros! It’s AMAZINGGGG! Like blew me away! So you choose a time slot online then you go during that time slot with a tour guide and about 10 other people! At the end you can take as long as you wish in their big studio with the Friend’s set, green screen, etc.! My friend knew about most of the places we went before we did, and she did not lead us astray! Especially Urth Caffe. Such a gem! Thanks for your sweet words and sharing in our adventure with us, lady!!! Unfortunately I don’t know if there is another trip in the mix coming up with the job starting, but I know I will get the itch again very soon! There are a few national parks close by- so maybe that?! Hope you guys are having a great start to your weekend ☺

Love the song “In Christ Alone” There are so many favourites but I like This is Amazing Grace, Your Grace is Enough, and Everlasting God. It’s great to go for a nice run or walk and worship! LOVE, love the butterfly pic and actually the photo shoot with your girlfriends by all the famous walls was such a great idea. Perfect memories of your weekend together.

Absolutely DO Warner Bros. on the next trip! It's AMAZING. The whole tour was magical. We truly tried to fit in as much as possible, but I still feel like there is a lot of ground to cover there! 🙂 I hope you had a beautiful weekend and a beautiful Sunday!

And you can people watch all day. Other than that, I’d just suggest walking around the Pier and also Main Street in Santa Monica and Venice, as well as Abbott Kinney Blvd in Venice. Santa Monica is my old hood so I could definitely hang out if the timing works for us!! ❤ Blessings Mack.

How about you, JJ, and I do a girls trip to WEHO sometime in our lives. We can hit all the cute walls, do Runyon, and WB (and of course eat all the yums!). Have such a great rest of your week, love!

  15. What a wonderful Part 2 of your trip (I thoroughly enjoyed Part 1 as well!). First off, I am so glad you made it home safely despite the foul & dangerous weather conditions! You are protected!

    I LOVE “In Christ Alone”! I have so many favourite songs and so many favourite Keith & Kristyn Getty songs. Another one of mine is “Behold the Lamb”.

    The food pics were awesome! I particularly love those taken at Au Fudge!

    And you got to go to the Gilmore Girls set! My daughters would go mad if they could be there!

    1. Awwwww thank you, Ju Lyn!!! 🙂 I so appreciate you taking the time to read!!!! And I LOVEEEEE Behold the Lamb but haven’t listened to it in a while. I’m going to play it right now ❤ Thank you for sharing! And if you ever get the chance to visit West Hollywood Au Fudge and the WB tour will not let you down 🙂 It's pretty amazing to see the Gilmore House and Luke's Diner (and all the other movie sets) in person! Surreal!
