Kristen Bell and her fiancé Dax Shepard got out to enjoy the warm LA weather on Saturday. They met up with friends at Griffith Park, where they hung out at a picnic table, showed sweet PDA, and played with their dog before heading off on a hike. Kristen and Dax watched the documentary Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead later that night before Kristen caught a flight out of town on Sunday morning. She headed to Wilmington, NC to start filming Writers alongside Lily Collins, Greg Kinnear, and Jennifer Connelly. Kristen's been juggling multiple projects lately including her Showtime series House of Lies and her ongoing narrating job on Gossip Girl. In addition to her small screen roles, she has Movie 43 and Outrun, which also stars Dax, in the works.
Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard relaxed at an LA park together on Saturday. The couple, who have been engaged since 2010, read magazines while their dogs played nearby. Kristen recently stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to chat about her upcoming movie Big Miracle, though talk turned to her 31st birthday last Summer when Dax presented Kristen with a gift she'd been dreaming about her whole life. Dax arranged for a sloth to be at their house during the bash, and in her extreme excitement, Kristen cried hysterically — the Kristen Bell with a sloth video is too funny to miss!
Kristen and Dax are keeping busy with multiple projects on both the big and small screens.

Lauren Conrad got Punk'd as she left lunch at King's Road Cafe in LA a few days ago! The MTV series returns to the airwaves soon, and Lauren was one of the revamped show's first victims last Friday. After Lauren and her friend finished their meal, she was apparently tricked into thinking a woman was stuck in the trash compactor of a passing garbage truck. A visibly concerned Lauren even got in on the rescue effort, helping unload bags of recycling from the vehicle, as a group of people tried to "free" the woman. Lauren realized she was on the receiving end of a major prank, however, when Dax Shepard showed up on the scene. Lauren looked genuinely surprised — and relieved — as he gave her a hug and reassured her that no one had really been in danger. Lauren was with a female pal during the unexpected TV appearance, but last night, Lauren and her rumored boyfriend Derek Hough hung out at dinner and a nightclub. The cute new pair were also seen kissing on the dance floor during another recent night out together.

Kristen said she actually wants a very small wedding, and isn't going overboard planning for the big day. Kristen did, though, act like a big spender during a prefilm trip to Costco. She tweeted a photo of one of her purchases and wrote, "A day at Costco often leads to months of regret."
