I just want to do hoodrat things with my friends lol JK but I have been more inspired to leave my house and do more things around the city lately. I have to admit, I can be a home body sometimes… a lot of times. But I’m trying to break the habit.
I met up with Melissa the other day and the day and it ended up being so hot that we walked 2 miles (back and forth) to get ice cream at Salt + Straw. This is the result of finding a great parking spot in LA. The meters were already paid before we got there so why try to move and search 20 minutes for another spot. So walking it was. Plus it’s like we were burning off the ice cream we just ate right? My favorite flavor is the Almond Brittle, just writing about it is making me crave it right now. So much for me only “cheating” on the weekends.
Afterwards we headed to the American Tea Room because tea and ice cream are probably my two favorite things in life. I really wanted hot tea but it was way too warm outside. LA skipped Spring and went straight to Summer apparently. So I ordered the Marrakesh Mojito which was so good and refreshing. Mint tea will forever be my all time favorite.
