I have an announcement: Los Angeles is my happy place.
LA is my happy place because no matter what is going on I cannot look outside and NOT be happy. This city just makes me feel so calm and at ease. I’ve literally never been this relaxed and satisfied in my life.
It also helped that even though I went out last night I still got to my early yoga class. There really is no better way to start a weekend. I was the only person in class (!) so I got extra attention and let me tell you, there was a lot of hip cracking.
And then I did this for the first time…
No, that’s not me. And yes, I did this against a wall. But it was an exciting first. I don’t have killer abs because, lets face it, who has that kind of dedication to core work? Not me! Doing my first headstand was pretty awesome. I had a total yoga high after this posture and and amazing meditation. I felt like I was floating on air all day.
Yesterday was a beautiful day too! I went on a great 5 mile run. The sun was out and the miles flew by. After I come home and stretched out I put “blendy” to good use by making a green monster.
Speaking of green machine… another reason today was awesome? White wine orzo with kale, asparagus, and lemon.
I made a garlicky white wine sauce, like this. While the sauce was simmering I added asparagus and kale. Then I combined with orzo and topped with a little bit of squeezed lemon and Parmesan.
When I opened my fridge I really just wanted something light, fresh and veggie packed and this dinner totally delivered. And it only took about 10 mins. Kale is my new favorite add in for any pasta dish and when its cooked in the white wine sauce it loses a bit of its bitterness and tastes so good. It’s a super food don’t you know!
and finally, Amanda and Andy are doing What I wore this week and in its honor I present…
What I wore this week: Going Out Edition.
Yesterday night Danielle and I went to bar review at BLVD 3 in Hollywood. For those who don’t know, Bar Review is a bar event that the law school hosts every Thursday night. No Friday class obvious equals dirty gin martinis. For the occasion I dressed up a little bit:
Bottoms: J Crew matchstick jeans
Earrings and necklace: Express
Clearly it’s all about the shoes…
Shoes: from Buffalo Exchange which, like, the best place on earth for bargains. I got an INSANELY (read: 100’s of dollars) marked down Catherine Malendrino dress with the tags still on today. Love.
And that is that! I’m still rocken’ a yoga high from class and I am looking forward to a nice long weekend!
Do you have any weekend plans? Do you have a long weekend?
