Our Favorite Local Brunch Spots

Not to sound too basic, but…

we LOVE brunch.

Like, borderline obsessed. And what’s not to love? Delicious, insta-worthy food. Acceptable day drinking, in public. Catching up with good friends. Beautiful, outdoor patios [our favorite, and — thanks to the 805 — it’s almost always patio-sitting weather :)]!

Today we’re sharing some of our fave brunch spots in the 805.  But friends, this is a two-way street — so if you have a fave brunch spot or two that we haven’t listed, please share in the comments below 🙂

We’re so fortunate to have access to numerous farms who provide their locally grown produce, honey & jams, eggs, meats, nuts, flowers and more to our local farmers markets. Pretty amazing, right!?

So now to the important questions, when and where can you find your nearest farmers market? Well, …

A Budget-Friendly Romantic Date Night in Malibu Canyon {it does exist}

I know, I know — Saddle Peak Lodge is hardly aligning with our mission statement of “ballin’ on a budget” …or is it, actually?

This is a place that I’ve always wanted to go [once my “money tree” started bearing fruit].  But, good news, guys — they’ve got HAPPY HOUR and a Supper Special!

Last year, Brett + I decided to have a late Valentine’s Day celebration.  We made resos on Open Table for 5pm, so we could make sure not to miss the sunset.  We both ordered from …

The Ultimate Workout Trio at SPN Pilates {3 ways to work your buns}

I, for one, am all about getting more for my money — high intensity, full body workouts. I like to sweat when I work out and I love being sore from a good workout (is that weird??). It’s my way of knowing that I’m making a difference.
