Hi friends. I know it’s been awhile. And I could give you a long list of excuses as to my absence, but I figured I’d just give you a fun pictorial recap instead. Since we last spoke I….
….went Rose Bowling and found the nightstand I’ve been lusting after (and since Jefe was on a plane, I prayed he’d like it)….
…. attended the swanky office Oscar party with my very dapper Jefe. Only one celebrity setting (Mr. Entourage himself, Adrian Greiner), but we had a great time minus my killer Monday morning headache….
… Jefe and I headed up the coast to Santa Barbara to celebrate year 4 of being partners-in-crime (and I guess love, too). We stared as some gorgeous shoreline, feasted, and drank our way through wine country. We may have returned with a case of wine….
… Hit up an LA Kings hockey game (they lost)….
…. Went to Pittsburgh for one of my college friend’s wedding. It was great being reunited with so many of my lady friends and I finally got a change to teach Jefe all about all things Yinzer: The Church Brew Works, Pamela’s, Carnegie Mellon University and all of its many weird traditions. We even managed to squeeze in a Penguins hockey game thanks to some stellar seats from a coworker who’s also a Pittsburgh native….
…. Saw MUPPETS: MOST WANTED at the El Capitain Theater that included a live pre-show with Kermit & Miss Piggy….
…. Headed to the Getty with my good friend John after a failed attempt to head to the Huntingdon Libraries & Botanical Gardens (thanks AAA and UberX for getting us out of South Pasadena in one piece)….
….Took a bite out of the Big Apple with some of the most adorable little people in our lives. I got to meet my best friend’s little girl Addie (short for Adeline), and spent some quality time with Geoff’s brother’s family. We also got the opportunity to see Audra McDonald in “Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill” and I can officially check off seeing her perform from my Broadway bucket list….
…. Went to ANOTHER LA Kings hockey game (we lost again and Jefe realized that we’ve lost every game he’s ever taken me too…..) But we had a great time as it was fan appreciation night, the Kings played a great game that led to overtime and 2 rounds of shoot outs….
…. hit up the Rose Bowl Flea Market with my friend Chelsey. I came home empty handed (minus the breakfast burrito and delicious watermelon juice in my stomach), but Chelsey grabbed 2 refurbished dining chairs and Jefe found the vintage sports equipment seller who’s been MIA the last few times. He walked away with a great leather baseball glove and an old catcher’s mask. I did happen to find the barnyard I think Beyonce came from:
All of the above was in addition to a few crazy months at the old 9-to-5 day job (and by that, I mean 9-9ish really). So pardon my blogging absence. I’ve also gotten a little tired of all the same interior decor and DIY I keep seeing rehashed and recycled everywhere and just needed a breather from the blogosphere.
Anyways, I’m back and hope to have some new home updates for you guys soon. First on the agenda – not killing my new little succulent. I have about as black a thumb as they can come so I’m doing my best to revamp my gardening ways.
