from the weekend: California vs. Michigan

10.04-weekendI had a pretty tame weekend in LA… we went to see Argo (sooo good) and had a few great meals at some of my favorite spots. Thanks Gjelina, Baco Mercat, & Umami Burger :).

MEANWHILE… in michigan it got a little wild! My parents were staying at my cabin for a few days and got a good look at this big ole coyote feeding on a deer RIGHT in front of the cabin. My mom took this photo from our deck while hiding behind a tree… kind of amazing.

from the weekend: girls brunch & new bike

10.22-weekendI made my way back from the cabin on Friday, just in time for a lovely weekend back home in LA. I had a really great brunch on Saturday with some talented & creative ladies (Anna, Kendra, Amanda & Lauren… were so much fun). Then we all met up again at the Rifle Paper event at Urbanic, which was also a hoot. And finally, on Sunday I got my husband a new bike so that we could enjoy the sunshine (his last one was swiped).

from the weekend: Gjelina & The Corner Door

6.11-weekend Gjelina Corner Door

This weekend I had my friend Anne in town from San Francisco and we did a mini food tour of a few of my favorite spots around the west side of LA. We made our first stop Friday at the new bar in town, The Corner Door (top right photo), then Saturday we had breakfast at Gjelina (top left photo), then lunch at the Kogi truck on Abbot Kinney, and dinner at Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing. Finally, Sunday we had breakfast at a friends restaurant Oscar’s Cervateca on Rose and then Lunch at Wurstküche. We ended it with another trip to Gjelina for dessert. Pheww… my mouth is watering just thinking about all of the amazing food.
