After having the past four weekends with visitors in and out, I was so excited to have a full weekend at home in LA. I got off of work early on Friday so I popped over to the mall to pick up a few new goodies.
I've been hating on my closet for it's lack of summer clothes, so I tried to snag a few summer dresses and tanks while I was shopping.
I got this striped tank from J.crew, and then a black silk dress from Madewell and a cute pink Splendid dress from cusp. I have a few baby showers over the next few weeks so I think I should get some good wear.
My friend Kristin hosted a few couples for dinner and games on Friday so I went to her house early to help her set up.
She served quite the feast, but my favorite dish she whipped up was cauliflower pizza. I'm going to try and re-create her recipe and will share if I can succeed.
All of my friends - and sister-in-law - keep having baby boys, so we are giving all of them quite the education on girl talk.
After dinner we played a few hilarious rounds of Cards Against Humanity, and then decided to call it quite before midnight. We were all sipping on cinnamon-sugar vodka, and I'm pretty sure if any more of that and I woulda been hurtin' on Saturday morning.
My driver was really sad the party was over.
Saturday I spent three hours purging and reorganizing my closet. I've been needing to do it for months, and I finally got the motivation to just get it done. I took two giant bags of things to Good Will and a few bags to the trash. It's wild how quickly I can accumulate such junk.
My determined to stop buying cheap crap, and start getting investment pieces that fit and make me feel good. I snagged this blouse on Friday too from J.Crew and finally bit the ever-trendy bullet and got the Kendra Scott Rayne necklace.
Joel and I never take advantage of living so close to the water, so after we parked near the restaurant, we walked about 11 blocks and caught the tail end of the sunset.
Our friends had reccomended Pono Burger the night before and we couldn't resist the sounds of draft beer, handmade fries, and burgers.
It's a super casual restauant, but everything was spectacular - and I loved the ambiance and the fact that we were basically eating dinner in a reclaimed barn.
The food was beyond delicious too. I got the "posh" burger which had truffles, mushrooms, arugula, and gouda....I could eat it everyday I'm sure.
On Sunday I took Joel to the airport for a business trip and had the day to myself working out, getting laundry and errands done, and watching Father of the Bride.
Just the exact weekend the doctor ordered.
