Last night, Irving and I went out for dinner (We had a groupon for a great Mexican place in burbank!) Before we ordered I asked Irving he wanted to try Yogurtland with me. I’ve never had it before. So I ordered a salad with the hopes of balancing it out with Fro-Yo. But when we walked by it after, there were hoards of kids and it was claustrophobic in there so decided against it. I was totally bummed. I wanted dessert!

We did a little shopping at Old Navy, Bed Bath and Beyond and Target when I got a text message from my friend Erica! She wanted to know if we wanted to meet at Menchies in a few minutes! YES. PLEASE!

It was fate! We chatted for almost an hour about LA, travel and beyond. So fun!

I had the Reece’s Peanut Butter cup (with crumbled reeces on top (and some other stuff). YUM!


Erica snapped this picture of the two of us. Thanks!!


Such a great night. I love menchies.


LA Galaxy with J&J May 9, 2011

Saturday night, we took Jake and Janie to an LA Galaxy game (sort of a late Christmas gift!) We got to the stadium really early and had fun walking around before the action started.

Instead of watching the game from our seats, we had reservations at the Stadium Club!

They had a great buffet and the food was amazing. Everything was fresh and tasted homemade.

Our seats were pretty good too. A neat perspective on the game.

Irving loved it. He’s a huge soccer fan, remember?
LA Galaxy (5)

Rumor has it that Leonardo DiCaprio was at the game too. They showed him on the big monitor, so I whipped my binoculars out (not kidding) and tried to find him, but I guess he was hiding.

The game ended at 1-1.

Hi David Beckham, you looked dapper at the Royal Wedding!

In other news from the weekend, we saw Jay Leno on Saturday at Menchies! He pulled up in an old Bentley and parked right next to me!

He said hi, got his ice cream and left. Just a typical Saturday living in LA. We were with Erika and Timmy and Jake and Janie too, it was fun to see a celeb so up close and personal.

Yesterday, we had brunch at Porto’s in Burbank (so good!) We sat outside and dined al fresco. It was so relaxing and nice.

Yesterday, we both felt a little blah. Just not motivated, a little sluggish and sad. Clearly, we were lacking endorphins. So we laced up our sneakers, gave ourselves a pep talk, and headed out for a four mile walk. Muuuuuch better. The fresh air and exercise were just what we needed to end a great weekend on a high note.

Happy Monday!

Last night’s meal was a “use up what’s in the fridge” night.

A nice hearty BLTA sandwich! (Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato and Avocado!!!)

Simple and delicious!

We kept dinner light because after, we headed over to MENCHIES!
Oh man, I needed this!

Pretty much a little of everything! YUM!
