So far our “Girly” weekend has been quite the success!! Last night we went shopping and I found this cute dress for only $10, but I really didn’t need it so I was good and just walked away.

It was so fun playing in Forever 21 with my two favorite teens, they are way hipper then I am.

I need some sun glasses because I lost mine, these were cute but not my favorite. Look at my anorexic NECK, why does it DO THAT?!

For dinner, I took the girls to my favorite Mongolian BBQ Restaurant.

We loaded our bowls up with a ton of veggies, pineapple, tofu, and noodles

We watched our dinner cook right before our eyes.

After dinner we all decided that FROYO was a must! Ashleigh had never had self serve before, she was soooo excited and spent lot’s of time choosing her toppings.

I got Coconut and Ghirardelli Chocolate Yogurt with chopped almonds, coconut flakes, sweet carob chips and a little Heath Bar :).

After FroYo we went and saw Julia & Julia at 10:25pm! I managed to stay awake and totally loved the movie. I related a little too much to the bloggers story..LOL…It made me want to live in France and start cooking French Food!  We got home at 1am and I had to be up at 5:30am for cross-country practice. Practice went well, we did hill repeats and I think one of the kids thinks I am an ANIMAL!

After practice I swung by the local Coffee Shop and got myself cup of “Nutty Doodie”. I really enjoy being a regular patron to my local Coffee Shop!

4.5 hours of sleep + 5 mile run + 500 calorie burned=one sleepy girl…

Bobbi’s B&B Breakfast Bar ( I so want to own a B&B) was scheduled for 8AM!! I promised the girls I would treat them to some super yummy oats.

I made a great big pot of oats and got out an endless selection of toppings

Of course there was some wonderful butters to choose from.

I brought my three favorite Oatmeal Bowls, it’s been a long time sense I got a new bowl ;).

I set the table with a wonderful supply of fruit, grapes from our vine and cantaloupe that I got at the market for 50 cents!

My bowl was filled with a little bit of everything.

Our plans for the day have changed because it is RAINING!!! No beach today, we are going to have a SLUMBER DAY PARTY instead. There will be a Marathon of Friends on, some baking happening and a lot of laziness!

Have a beautiful Saturday friends!

you live such a full life! i feel like with the bootcamp-ers you tackled nutrition/zen-ness and was wondering if any of that was going to come through in the xc coaching that youre doing now?

Nutty Doodie sounds intriguing, and I always love trying new coffees.

Ps. You must be the best hostess ever for offering your guests cacao bliss. I've only come across that stuff online and I want to buy some but the price + shipping is just too much

Every time I see your delicious fro yo I just want to MOVE to CA. I'm a little dramatic I know.

I'm glad I found your blog! Really enjoying it! I'm new to the LA area and it is fun to read a blog by someone nearby. Why does it seem most bloggers are on the east coast?! :)

I really want to see that movie now.
Those oats looks so yummy.

Lo said...

Niki said...

Looks like so much fun!!

P.S. Your "anorexic neck" is caused by your platysma muscle! It's pretty much one of the weirdest muscles in the body. :)

Tay said...

Ahhh my neck does that same thing sometimes!! It's awful! I never understand it.
