The Little Things #3.

Oh, hello! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend – I know I did! It was waaaaay too hard to get back to real life this morning. Here are some of the things making me happy this week…

Getting to spend time with my brother! He’s here from NY from work, but we were able to hang out all weekend. We snuck in a hike to the Griffith Observatory to see the views of LA, but only found fog instead…It was still fun, though πŸ™‚

Other than my weekend adventures, I’ve been enjoying some summer eats. Like this fro-yo, which had way too many toppings to be remotely nutritious.

And I discovered Hubert’s Lemonade – finally! This stuff is incredible and so refreshing. I only tried the watermelon flavor, which was a tiny bit sweet, but I bet it would be even better mixed with some sparkling water.

Plus some fruit! Mangoes have been on sale, thank goodness. They’re one of my favorite fruits but they’re usually too expensive. Luckily I’ve been able to stock up!

That’s all for now, friends. I’ll be back later this week with some more healthy recipes and fun things πŸ˜‰

I know I mentioned this in my post last week, but I’ve been making a conscious effort to take notice of the littler things in life. I’ve been spending a lot of time on the west side of LA lately and instead of giving in to the constant road rage that comes with traffic on the 405, I’ve chosen to just enjoy the beauty of being in this change of scenery.

I know it’s cliche, but getting outside and soaking in some Vitamin D is one of my favorite cures for stress. Taking advantage of the California sun is a priority of mine and the image of a sunset over the city is something is one of the littler things I’ve learned to appreciate. A recent hike to Griffith Park provided me with a view (and a photo opp) that left me speechless.

I also managed to squeeze in happy hour with one of my best friends for Dine L.A.’s Happy Hour Week! We went to Little Fork in Hollywood and had the most amazing oysters, burger, ribs and cornbread. Oh and wine, of course πŸ˜‰

Well I suppose that’s all for now. As you go out and celebrate Cinco de Mayo (one of my personal favorite holidays), I’ll be here at school learning about Brand Management. Without margaritas. *sigh*

Have a fantastic week and don’t forget to enjoy the little things πŸ™‚
