Look at that, I stayed on schedule all week. Major points for me!
And now I’m back to share this week’s odds n’ ends. Enjoy!
A Peek Into My Week 9/21-9/27:
Things I Did:
One of my best friends, Shelby, and I decided to make our ‘girl’s nights’ a weekly affair. We’re going to alternate between our apartments- the host cooks and provides food, the guest provides wine. We got together for installment #2 on Sunday night at my place. On the menu: finger foods (hummus, fruit, veggies, crackers, cheese, etc.) and wine (duh) which was all consumed while watching The Emmy’s.
Like I mentioned last week, I’ve been trying to eat a little healthier. So, I bought kale because it’s the epitome of “healthy food”- kidding (kind of). Then I made the most amazing salad ever. And ate it over and over again. I usually pair it with almond butter toast or crackers with hummus ’cause I like carbs.
The anti-recipe: Toss kale (washed/de-stemmed) in a bowl with shredded carrots, scallions, tomatoes, half of an avocado, the juice from one lemon, sea salt (be generous), and pepper. Massage it all together and really mash up the avocado so it’s like a dressing. Devour. Holy yum.
3. Did some fall shopping
Nordstrom Rack is dangerous. End of story.
Oh, the perks of going on a massive cleaning/organizing rampage.
On Thursday night my friend Robby and I had tickets to see The Sunshine Boys in downtown LA. The play stars Danny DeVito and Judd Hirsh and was absolutely hilarious. Being that I spent 75% of my childhood watching Matilda, I was giddy about seeing Danny DeVito live and he definitely didn’t disappoint. If you live in the LA area, I highly recommend snatching up tickets!
Things I Learned:
2. The StairMaster is death (especially when you haven’t been exercising much)
3. Miley Cyrus isn’t stopping (source)
4. Gratitude really does bring happiness (source)
5. i0S 7 isn’t so bad after all (I gave in)
Overall, it was a really good week. I made a few much-needed changes and decided to step back and just be thankful for all of the amazing things I do have in my life. I decided to focus on the positive. I decided to finally be a “yes” person- more about that on Monday! Have a beautiful weekend, everyone!
Here’s to being blessed with another week…
