40 Days and 40 Nights

Remember that movie? Josh Hartnett, the teenage heartthrob, couldn’t sleep with anyone for 40 days. Whatever happened to him? If you want something similar to that movie, watch “Too Hot To Handle.” I am unfortunately enamored with the tall, 23-year-old Aussie who uses the phrases “naughty possums” and “little quesadillas” to refer to people. Okay, so that’s what I’m doing – watching bad T.V. like … Continue reading 40 Days and 40 Nights

5 Days of Galentine’s (Weekend in San Diego)

San Diego Long Weekend I was hungover, but I dragged myself to SD Sweat Squad’s event: 20 minutes on the Versa climber and 20 minutes of Lagree. It was a daze and hard, but I sweat out the hangover! I was pretty tired from the week – overworked and underfed – so I took myself to sushi. Normally, I sit at the bar, but I … Continue reading 5 Days of Galentine’s (Weekend in San Diego)

Sunday Bests: Cheers to Cheer! (Holiday Parties)

Girls’ Night Pajama night complete with martinis, gingerbread house, and baking cookies, which didn’t come out well after a few martinis. Day of Holiday Shopping Catherine and I spent all Saturday running errands, starting with the farmer’s market, “chagacinno” coffee for me and churro latte for her, the best revolving sushi bar, and hours at World Market perusing their holiday deals. I’m partaking in an … Continue reading Sunday Bests: Cheers to Cheer! (Holiday Parties)

Sunday Bests: All the Holiday Coffee, Cookies, & Cheer!

This week was fueled by coffee, sometimes a Christmas blonde roast from Starbucks and some fancy holiday beverages. Let’s be honest – I don’t like cooking and when I do cook, I have far too many leftovers. I have basic foods during the day (oatmeal, eggs, protein shakes), but when it’s nighttime or the weekend, I yearn for more and try to keep it healthy. … Continue reading Sunday Bests: All the Holiday Coffee, Cookies, & Cheer!

Sunday Bests: Giving Time for Friends & Food

I haven’t shared my intentions in awhile, but in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I intended to give time to the people in my life and it was pretty easy. Pre-Thanksgiving with Friends “Modified day” lunch, walk with a co-worker and her baby, and air massage using Normatec sleeves. The hip sleeves were my favorite! My friend Elle was also in town so we grabbed ice … Continue reading Sunday Bests: Giving Time for Friends & Food

Sunday Bests: Catching Up with Friends

I’ve caught up on sleep and maybe I’m even oversleeping by going to bed by 8 or 9pm. Working out when I wake up has helped my mood after work and allowed me to do things with friends. I shared a bottle of wine (50% off) with a co-worker at Cultivation Kitchen then passed out, drove out to Chino Hills to visit a friend and … Continue reading Sunday Bests: Catching Up with Friends

Kicking off November in the Desert (Idyllwild, Palm Springs, Joshua Tree)

It’s November and thank goodness. I don’t put a hex on October because it’s notoriously challenging, it’s a fact – it’s a busy month without any days off! March is the other challenging month. It was a festive week and a short week too! Friday was student-free. Red Ribbon/Spirit Week My co-workers and I dressed up all week. I got in the spirit with my … Continue reading Kicking off November in the Desert (Idyllwild, Palm Springs, Joshua Tree)

Sunday Bests: Leaf Chasing & Pumpkin Carving

In past Octobers, I’ve been to the Eastern Sierras and New Mexico for some of the most relaxing trips. Last year in October, I spent a 3-day weekend in Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear. I’m a PSL basic b*tch but now I’m into apple cinnamon everything instead. Somehow, I’m being more responsible with my funds and I’m going to a destination wedding next month and … Continue reading Sunday Bests: Leaf Chasing & Pumpkin Carving

Sunday Bests: Me at my best (at home, at work, with friends)

This was an insane week, but I showed up for it. It was even that time of the month! It was me doing my best, being a good enough teacher (2 of 4 periods are lovely, the other 2 kill me), and taking time to be with friends yet still getting activity and rest. Me, at home Me, at work Me, with friends Yelp 80s … Continue reading Sunday Bests: Me at my best (at home, at work, with friends)
