Five on Friday

::: 1 :::
Summertime and tennis are synonymous for me, so Joel and I have been trying to play one night a week after work. 

In case there was any question, Roscoe is a very big tennis fan as well
My game is horrible right now...and the pace of game we play is almost painful since I'm not exactly running to get to the ball, but it's been nice to just be outside and moving, although I don't have high hopes for keeping up this routine for long, to be honest....the one hour left my back sore and achey from all of the swinging and bending, so...I may be sideline watching Joel's league sooner than later ;)

Side perk to playing tennis at 6 is that I don't prep dinner, so when we finished, I convinced Joel that we had to stop for an ice cream cone. LA is all but obsessed with their frozen yogurt shops but literally it's is all but impossible to find a soft serve machine in this city! If your local, this goody was from Carvel in Westwood.

So summer TV sucks, but it's good timing since a lot of new books have hit the shelves. I just started 800 Grapes by Laura Dave (who I love...if you haven't read The First Husband, that's a great summer read too) and so far, I'm obsessed.

DIY Naturally Flavored Herb and Fruit Water Recipes
I'm drinking a lot of water these days. I think I fill up my 33oz camelback like 10 times a day, and I normally make myself a Lime LaCroix/Cranberry mocktail or two at night. Needless to say, I pee every 12 minutes, but I'm also starting to tire of both plain water and my little mocktail combo. I've been steeping cold teas, but I'm also going to try and make a pitcher of fruit infused water too. The W hotel always has the most delicious flavored water, so I don't see why I can't copycat it at home.

We have another low key weekend on the books. We're going to walk to dinner tonight for burgers, stay in tomorrow and visit our local library for a book fair, and then on Sunday we are making a much anticipated and equal parts dreaded trip to Ikea. 

Hope you have a great weekend! 


  1. tell me about peeing every 12 minutes....I think I was an hour of my work day just peeing but I love the idea of the infused teas! Plain water can be so boring!! Happy Weekend!

  2. One of my fave water combos is lemon, mint, and cucumber. So refreshing! I'm determined to try a new combo to branch out from that this summer. haha

  3. Totally love the quote of the day! :) Your ice cream looks fantastic. I haven't played tennis in forever but if you're pregnant and rocking it, I need to step it up already ha. You're motivating me for sure, girl! Have a great weekend!
