weekend warrior [a delayed recap].

2 Aug

This post is a little bit delayed – but for good reason! I had an insanely busy weekend last weekend, and this week has been packed full of work and school events. Here’s a recap of what went down last weekend.

On Saturday, my Dad, brother, and I met up for lunch in Sherman Oaks at the Blue Dog Beer Tavern. We went once last summer and apparently I ordered the same thing – the turkey chipotle sandwich, which was excellent.  My newly 21-year-old brother did most of the “day drinking.” Here he is with his “Raging Bitch” IPA.

On Saturday night, Aviva, Armita, Jenn and I had dinner in Brentwood, and then popped over to a local middle school for the Eat. See. Hear. presentation of “The Princess Bride.” If you can believe it, I’ve never seen the movie before! I enjoyed it, and now understand the “inconceivable!” references. I sipped on an IPA during the film. Sunday morning featured a trip out to Malibu Wines. I enjoyed the “light flight” and some picnic grub from Trader Joe’s. Afterward, I toured Aviva and Armita around my house and showed them my high school.


Later that night, my mom and I headed to the Hollywood Bowl to see “The Producers.” I’d never seen the movie or the musical before, but LOVED it. It was hilarious – and I have been going around quoting some of the lines since then. Dane Cook was really impressive in the role of Franz Liebkind – who knew he could sing or act!?

Tomorrow is my last day at my externship! It’s been a fun summer and I have learned a lot, but now I am gearing up for OCI (On-Campus Interviews) which start in the next few days. It will be a crazy week, but I am looking forward to it. Time to brush up on my interview and networking skills!

Here’s LAST week’s workouts:

  • Monday: Yoga
  • Tuesday: 3 mi. run + New Rules’ Body Weight Matrix
  • Wednesday: 4 mi. run
  • Thursday: 3 mile run + NROLFW 3B
  • Friday: 1000 m Swim
  • Saturday: 5 mi. run
  • Sunday: OFF

We have a random day off today so I am catching up on important TV (Bachelor Pad) and getting organized for the week ahead.

Happy (Almost) Weekend!

      Thank you! Looking forward to 2L 🙂

      OCI is nerve-wracking but it’s short and sweet. And I feel like if I survived sorority recruitment, I can handle this.

    […] July started off with a bang with a Fourth of July 10k in the Palisades, followed up with a little rage-fest with my section budz. I also discovered electronic musician Sahy Uhns, celebrated my blog’s third birthday, and saw The Producers at The Hollywood Bowl. […]
