Yeee! We’ve made it to another Friday. I wish that meant relaxing time but, for me, it just means prepping for a weekend of work. Anyone with a job in the food industry can relate, I’m sure. My bank account and I are definitely not complaining though. The bills never stop rolling in…
Busy weeks always fly by- it’s a blessing and a curse. I love it but simultaneously wish time would slow down a little bit. The happier I get, the more I want to hold on to each precious moment.
Alright, I’m done rambling. Here’s my week in a nutshell- hopefully you’ll link up so I can see yours!
Things I Did:
1. Had installment #3 of girl’s night
It was Shelby’s week to host and she whipped up goat cheese & spinach ravioli (YUM), salad, and garlic bread. Wine, Clueless, and lots of gossiping rounded out the night. Perfect.
2. Busted out the autumn colors
It’s still not cool enough in LA to bring out the heavy jackets and knit scarves but I got in the autumn spirit by wear warmer colors (orange, brown, maroon, etc.), light scarves, and boots.
Yeah, I’ve had it for 2 years now and finally took it out of the box this week (#lazygirlprobs).
2 years later and I’m finally putting my crock-pot to use. #typical

4. Discovered a new favorite lunch spot
My friends have been raving about this place for as long as I can remember but I never ventured in until now. I’m officially in love. They’re vegetarian menu is awesome and this kale ceasar rocked my world.
On Thursday night I had a horrible dream and, when I woke up, it was impossible to go back to sleep. I had the random urge to run so I headed over to the gym and did just that. Holy smokes…First of all, frustration must have fueled me because I have no idea how I squeezed out 7 miles after not running in forever. Second of all, my legs currently feel like lead. If you need me, I’ll be foam rolling.
Things I Learned:
1. Chipotle finally has vegetarian-friendly pinto beans (source)
2. It’s a record when NYC goes a week without murders (source)
3. The government is back…at least until January 15th (source)
4. The hunt for Christian Grey continues (source)
5. When you’ve done all you can do for someone, it’s okay to step away
Here’s to loving the life we’re living…
