Hello Wednesday! Today, I am linking up with Shay for "What's Up Wednesday," which consists of answering the following questions.
1. What We're Eating This Week
My friend and I went to a fabulous French restaurant in the area that's authentically "French country" style cuisine, meaning a lot of items on their menu include meats typically found in the countryside (e.g. duck, bison, etc). In addition, their menu is written on a huge chalk board that they bring to your table. Did I mention the drinks were divine? Here's my fruity tropical drink below. I mentioned to the waiter that I felt like I should be somewhere tropical while sipping on my drink.
2. What I'm Reminiscing About
Studying abroad in Marseille, France, during college. I was watching the Euro Cup this month and some games were played in Marseille at the Velodrome stadium, which I would pass daily when taking the metro into the city. Happy memories. :)
3. What I'm Loving
My new custom Nike ID shoes. These were an early birthday gift I received based on my custom specifications. You can design your own here.
4. What We've Been Up To
I went to a Conan O'Brien show taping at the Warner Bros studio this month. I will do a full blog post on the experience soon, but it was super fun. And what's better is that it's free! Although we couldn't take pictures while the show was taping, here are some shots I took before the show started.
5. What I'm Dreading
Fire season. It's officially fire season here in Los Angeles. We have a huge fire that firefighters are currently battling that's only 25% contained, has scorched 37,473 acres, and has destroyed 18 homes. Please pray for all the firefighters and service crews who risk their lives daily to keep us safe.
6. What I'm Working On
Planning various appointments for 2017 (tax appointment, my physical etc.) What can I say, I'm a planner, and I always plan these sometime around June/July of the previous year. And I love using my Erin Condren 18-month life planner to remember everything. Here's the design I went with this year (it's my 3rd planner from Erin Condren, and it never disappoints). :)
7. What I'm Excited About
My birthday in August. :) There's no shame in celebrating it ALL month, right?!
8. What I'm Watching/Reading
There's not much on in the summer, but I am watching The Bachelorette (sometimes you just need some mindless TV to escape), and will watch Bachelor in Paradise when it starts next month.
9. What I'm Listening To
Literally, right now, I'm listening to "Mack the Knife" by Louis Armstrong as I type this on Tuesday evening. I love listening to Pandora while I blog. :)
10. What I'm Wearing
My sweats! So chic, I know. ;) I just got back from the gym.
11. What I'm Doing This Weekend
Going to one of my favorite pizzerias in Los Angeles. Bonus: the restaurant is also participating in Dine L.A.! More details on Dine L.A. can be found in my previous post here.
12. What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month
Traveling to San Francisco! I will be there for a week for work.
13. What Else is New
Kate Spade is having a sale up to 75% off, only through today! No code is necessary...just shop away! I'm eyeballing this and this (these would make traveling so much more fun).
Thanks for stopping by!
