So, my brain has turned into wedding mush. Danny and I are less than 2 months out and we have dove into the details. I can't wait to share more of everything but the time is not right... yet. Soon.

Anyway... last weekend we took a daycation to Ventura for my future mother-in-law's (aka "Ma") birthday and well... wedding things.  Last year, I ran the Malibu Half Marathon with my favorite Canadians and we stayed in Ventura. I never really spent time there before, but it's cute! So when the opportunity came to go back and celebrate a great occasion there... let's go!

Our first stop was to Copper Mug Company's warehouse! Again, if you know me, you know I love copper and I loveeee moscow mules!!!  I fell in love with Copper Mug Co's products about 3 years ago when we came across their booth at the monthly Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena, CA. Their mugs are made with utmost quality copper, craftsmanship, and are utterly beautiful. It was so awesome to visit their location, see and touch all their products, talk to one of the owners, Eric, in person, learn more about them, and pick up some exciting stuff!!

Next, we headed to the pier and schmoozed about. I actually really love their port. So many cool boats and it's fun to read their names and where they came from! We then saw the mission - v pretty - and headed for some seafood!

We chose the former Erik Erikson, now Beach House Fish, and it did not disappoint! Unlike most places, their more formal restaurant is located downstairs and offers a wonderful array of fresh seafood, prepared the way you wish, located right on the pier with awesome views (the bartender has the best view... really). My fiancé's sister and I came prepared with mini party hats - since Ma hates tiny hates - and we became affectionally called "the tiny hat table." I ordered their blackened salmon salad and it was perfect. Would definitely eat here again!!

I think Ma had a good birthday. I love her and can't wait to officially become her daughter.
