The Weekly Collective: A new hair-do & the Foodie in me.

Sometimes it seems as if the days just blur together and you forget all about the simple little joys that make life worth living. These posts force me to sit back and remember why I love my life.

Will and I took my parents to an Angels game this week as a late Father’s Day gift to my dad, who of course, lives and breathes baseball (and most sports for that matter).  I posted this photo of my mom and I on facebook while we were at the game and all I kept hearing was how much I look like my mom from everyone.  While I’m flattered because I have such a beautiful mom (shhh don’t tell her I said that), I really don’t see it.  So I keep going back to this photo trying to find the similarities…

{Okay, maybe just a little bit ;)}

I’m starting to notice a pattern in most of my weekly posts. Food. Food. And more food.  If you know me, you know that I’m kind of obsessed with food. It’s really almost to the point where I annoy my friends and even myself.  I’m constantly on Yelp and other food blogs looking for the highest rated burger in OC or the best sushi in Irvine.  And local coffee shops? Love em’. I feel like my friends are always thinking, can’t she just be like everyone else and buy her coffee from Starbucks for godsake? My husband constantly reminds me of how much of a yuppie I am, and it doesn’t just stop at trendy restaurants. I’ve been completely and utterly sucked in to the world of organic fruits and veggies and free-range meats. But true yuppie or not, I really do believe that choosing to eat better quality foods can help prevent a lifetime of diseases and health problems. So make fun of me all you want, I like my organic strawberries thankyouverymuch.:)

{From top, left to right: Blueberry and orange scone at Le Pain Quotidien in Pasedena (yet again), organic strawberries from the Famers Market, my beloved Kean coffee, my take on a healthy margarita “pizza” with whole wheat pita bread, basil, fresh mozzarella, and olive oil and garlic}

Last but not least, I got my hair done today and since I don’t usually do anything but the usual boring ole cut, I felt that some beachy highlights (on the ends) were in order. Although the change is subtle (you might not even notice a difference), it’s enough to make me feel just a little bit cooler.;)

{Thanks to my lovely Photographer, also known as my husband, Will}

Happy beginning of the week!!!

  • Will - I really shouldn’t get any credit. Brandi set up the shot, and I walked over sheepishly, then pressed the shutter. I am on par with a tripod when it comes to photography.ReplyCancel
