Snaps – Weekend Happenings

Day late but wanted to share last weekend’s highlights.  Fall weather arrived in early morning and late night, but we are still having such sunny, warm, lovely days.

Friday night I had a dinner date with my best friend at one of our favorite go to restaurants in Santa Monica, The Misfit.  Even though we usually have about a 45 minute wait, grabbing a cocktail at their awesome bar helps the time fly.  Long waits rarely bother me if I have good company and a nice drink.  I almost prefer it on weekend nights.

Rosenthal wines

Saturday started bright and early with some cleaning and prep work.  I headed up the coast to Malibu for a birthday celebration at Rosenthal Wines.  It was the perfect way to spend a warm Saturday.  Sipping some wine, live music, and plenty of snacks.  I’ve been to Malibu Wines before, but Rosenthal was nice because it’s smaller, a little more laid back, and a lot easier to get to.  They do have a few food trucks, but packing a picnic is a good idea.  We wrapped up there and headed for some late night food down the street from our house.

Sunday I caught up on some reading, emails, and watched football.  This will be Sunday for the next few months.  Yay football season.  We headed to my parents for dinner and to celebrate my dad’s birthday.  The best part, aside from family time, was this incredible cake my mom got from Wholefoods.  Oh, my.  Probably should have added another pilates class this week after that slice.

August Favorites

Aug Faves (1 of 1)

August has come and gone in what seems like a blink of the eye.  Thought I'd share a few things I enjoyed this month.  Hand cream, books, a candle, and some wine.  I swear I left the house!  Looking back onto my August favorites, it looks like I was Continue Reading

Goodbye sweet summer.  Although Labor Day is over, I luckily live in a place that holds onto summer a little longer than most places.  The warmth lingers and there is no shortage of beach days, but the days are definitely getting shorter. So Continue Reading

Tulum, Mexico


In the beginning of July, I headed down to Tulum, Mexico for a week vacation.  Summer is generally my busy season and it is hard to take off a lot of time.  Last year I managed to swing a three week trip at the end of the summer, but this year I was Continue Reading

On the rare weekend I don't plan a lot, like this past weekend, I seem to quickly fill it up.  I enjoyed a family dinner, night out with my girlfriends, brunch date, and some football.  Still kind of shocked football is already back.  Crazy.  Oddly Continue Reading
