It’s confession time: I don’t think I’ve been this burned out ever. Ok, not ever but the past few weeks have been rough. Normally, in law school, your grade is determined by a single final exam. Thus, all the stress comes along in November/December or April/May. This is the most mid semester stress I’ve had in years. Spring break couldn’t come soon enough.
LCCMom decided to come out for my spring break this year. LCCMom and I have been spring breaking together since I was in utero. For years we went to Marco Island, Florida. Last year we went to Palm Springs. This year we’re just staying in LA for what will basically amount to a week of shopping, snacking, and making pit stops at Starbucks.
Some highlights so far…
Dinner at Pecorino. We ate there last time she visited and it was just as good as before.
We also hit up the Brentwood Country Mart for brunch at Farmshop. If you haven’t been its a MUST do. I didn’t blog it, but the meal was fantastic!
Because it’s been cold…
Today was the LA Marathon and it was a rainy, cold downpour. We posted up in Starbucks and watched the elites run by.
Watching this made me so insanely excited for Chicago.
We watched the rest from Tavern. Duh.
Buckle up for dessert…
Good lord this was tasty. One of my favorite Tavern desserts ever. There will be more Tavern to come later in the trip…
And because it continues to be cold and rainy…
The rain was so miserable LCCMom and I parted ways after lunch (I have a 30 page paper due the Tuesday after Spring Break) but not before buying ourselves some dinner for later from New York Bagel.
I was very productive and celebrated with…
And a little at home yoga flow & headstand. I really wanted to run but its a monsoon outside. Better luck tomorrow?
Finally, this week is all about shopping. LCCMom and I hit up the consignment stores and I got a fantastic belted David Meister dress!
Yay for new professional wear that fits!
More exciting eats and activities ahead in the next week.
What are your ideal vacation activities? Nothing in more calming to me than shopping and eating.
I’m so glad you get a chance to unwind, I’m still just an undergrad, but I felt the same last week on my spring break! yikes! glad I found your blog 🙂
Thanks for reading!
Ooooooh bread pudding! We should have a meetup that involves bread pudding! We need to share the love!
As long as my vacations involve lots of food, I’m a happy camper 🙂 Enjoy your break!
Holy bread pudding, Batman. I’m drooling at my desk.
Cute dress! I love it! Hope you’re having fun with your mom!!
That dress is SO YOU, it’s not even funny. Or, it is, a little bit.
just wait til you see my other “new acquisitions”! However, I bought a bridesmaids dress for a friends wedding that is definitely not me… bright pink strapless and short! I think it needs to be accessorized with some over sized pearls 🙂
