SLO STAYCATION WITH LANA

Lana came to visit last weekend!!! When she got into SLO I showed her my favorite shops: Huckleberry Market, Left Field, and Ruby Rose. I bought a gold geometric airplant holder for our bathroom and I scored a rad vintage plaid onesie swimsuit. We split a sandwich at Giant Grinders and spent the afternoon soaking up the sun and splashing around at the Madonna Inn pool :) 

Madonna Inn was dressed up the nines (more than usual) for Valentine's Day weekend, so we decided to grab a drink at the bar. Per Lana's recommendation I had my first Dirty Shirley—a Shirley Temple spiked with Vodka! Then we grabbed  sushi and ended the night at Luis Wine Bar. On Sunday morning we went to Mama's Meatball so that I could photograph a recipe for the SLO Farmers' Market Cookbook, which happens to be Lana's favorite restaurant in town. Then we went on a leisurely hike at the South Hills Trail, met up with Shea at Luna Red for tapas on the patio during happy hour, and ended the night playing cards (the French card game L'asenseur a.k.a. Elevator) with Family Dinner folks. It was a great SLO staycation filled with food and friends; my favorite combo of all-time :)
