I would say “I tried to enjoy the last week of summer by going out and being outside,” but who am I kidding? It’s Southern California and we have weather that permits outdoor beer gardens and beach days.
Elle was in town on Monday so we met up for dinner. I had a big salad and a margarita. On Wednesday, I went to trivia night – we had such a big group and did so much talking that we were barely paying attention!
In the evening, I went to hang out with my friend while she “worked.”
I ended up skipping an event in LA and instead, got coffee with a friend at the brand new Golden State Coffee Roasters. We swooned over the location, which we hope is a contender for our event in November!
I needed some time away and although it’s not known as a vacation spot, Ventura seems like it. It’s a sleepy beach city north of LA and south of Santa Barbara, and my BFF lives there so it’s free too!
Immediately when I arrived, Jordan handed me a plate with Nashville hot chicken sandwiches. Homemade and perfectly crisp!
We drove a few minutes to a quaint beach, Emma Wood State Beach, and lazed around for 3 hours, working on our tans for Cabo!
After breakfast, I walked downtown to a Lagree Megaformer pilates class at Fit Buddha. It was my favorite Megaformer class so far – it was painful and hard but I felt of the bad joint pain and more of muscle fatigue.
I made it home by early evening to plan for work and meal prep. I’m in a 14-day challenge with my favorite personal trainer, Emily S. of Heartmybody Fitness.
