Friday's Thoughts

  • I really enjoyed reading Natalie's "Day in My Life" post, and so I thought I would do something of the same. I snapped pictures all throughout the day of a typical day in my life. Which, I have no come to the realization, I need to get a friggen hobby.
  • This week I have heard of my third friend here in LA getting a cell phone ticket. They are expensive and seriously impact your insurance since it is considered a moving violation - so I bit the bullet and ordered a car speaker phone. It was about $65 bucks off of Amazon - but with all of the driving I've been doing it's such a smart investment - and it will play Pandora off of my phone through my car speakers - so double plus! 
  • This afternoon I'm going to finally see Pitch Perfect. I haven't been to the movies in so long, and it's seriously one of my favorite activities so I am counting down the hours.
  • I signed up for a 10k mountain race on Thanksgiving morning. Running a turkey trot is a tradition for me - this will be my 8th or 9th year in a row - but I've never done it in. the. mountains. I'm pretty freaking sure I made a huge mistake, but hopefully I'll up my training and lose a few lbs in the process.  http://www.trailrace.com/maps/ttt_10k_profile.gif
  • I am on the hunt for a light puffer jacket. I love the J.Crew ones but I refuse to spend $100 dollars on a jacket without sleeves. I've searched high and low and cannot find any similar options for less. Any ideas?
  • This weekend Joel, Roscoe, and I are headed to the Pumpkin Patch. I'm so excited too because this year my pumpkins can actually stay outside since we have a patio that is screaming for some decorations!

  • On Saturday, my grandpa, "Papa", is turning 90 YEARS OLD. And you guys.....he is not your typical 90 year old Grandpa. He is active, still driving, running the Italian club at his condo, still driving my Grandma crazy, and still the leader of our family. I love him so much and wish so badly I could be there to give him a big giant kiss tomorrow.

Happy weekend, everyone!! xx


  1. Aw Happy Birthday to your grandpa! That's so great he's doing so well! :)

    I saw that ON had some puffer vests, so you can count on those being on the cheaper side.

  2. love that picture of your grandpa. Too hilarious!

    No clue about the puffer jackets, and I usually know where to buy EVERYTHING.


    And I might go see Pitch Perfect for my birthday on Sunday. I've got BIG plans. Or not.

  3. What a great picture of your grandpa! I know Lands' End has down vests and I have two from Eddie Bauer that I love (and they have sales a lot!). I want to see Pitch Perfect too!

  4. I heard Lands End has some great vests!

  5. Target has puffer vests right now, in a bunch of colors, and I saw some at Old Navy too.

  6. A turkey trot in the mountains?! You're braver than I am, girl!
