5 on Friday


 I love you, California 

I'm officially a California licensed driver - which, if you're not from California - is actually quite a feat. Their 38 question test is freaking hard. All of my transplant friends freaked me out about it, so I studied - and memorized - all of the practice tests that they offer online. Well, the test lived up to its reputation and I failed my 1st attempt (Joel, of course, only missed one). Thankfully you can take 3 tests that same day, so I took the 2nd test right away and passed. If you fail all 3 attempts, you can't try again for 90 days. So glad that it's out of the way, but I have to wait 2 weeks for it to show up in the mail.


To celebrate, I met a girlfriend at Sotto for Italian wine and pasta. It was glorious - and the restaurant (and it's upstairs neighbor Picca) is my new favorite go-to spot(s).


I took advantage of Loft's 40% off sale and snagged this scarf for $8 bucks. I bought it to dress up a navy maxi dress, but I've literally been wearing it with everything. all. week. long.


If you don't have a dog, you are probably going to think I'm a nut job, but I'm just so in love with Roscoe lately. As he leaving his puppy phase, he is turning into such a little love bug. He is the cuddliest, most loyal and loving dog I've ever had the privilege of knowing. He gets a major shout out this week. 

morning breakfast in bed
We don't have many exciting plans for this week, which is exciting in itself. I'm hoping to get in a few hard workouts, try my hand at another batch of Curry, and just enjoy being home.

  1. I'd be ALL over that Sotto place. It looks just my style! Oh, and loving that scarf on you ... I think it's high time I hit up Loft. Do you care if I am a copycat?! :)

  2. Tess, you look great!!

    And I see nothing wrong with being obsessed with Roscoe, since I am quite obsessed with Sammy. ;)
