Scenes From the Weekend

MONDAY. Who’s ready?



I ended up taking a spontaneous mental health day from work Friday after my blog post went up because I’d been having a WEEK, and my day thereafter was largely owned by podcasts + pizza. I got stuck in crazy traffic that afternoon driving down to San Diego… these podcasts were a God-send. “Invisiblia” is my latest obsession (reader recommendation!), and I listened to “Happier With Gretchen Rubin” for about two seconds before getting annoyed with her voice and switching to a different podcast. Pizza was the reward for surviving three hours on the 5S highway. 😉


I snuck in an early morn barre class Saturday morning at my old studio in San Diego. They use the double bands there in some classes, which – in case you’re wondering – are not fun, and more difficult (I hear they’re considered a Level III Pure Barre class).

Saturday = brunch with my favorite San Diego ladies at Cafe 222 (which is on this list of best breakfasts in SD). The pancakes were on point (and larger than my head). It was SUCH a gorgeous day in SD, too. SoCal had headed face first into summertime. Apparently we don’t need spring?

IMG_6468 IMG_6464And Sunday I basically repeated Saturday, only in Orange County….. brunch at Greenleaf Chopshop with a friend after a sweaty barre class in Newport Beach (they need to get some a/c in that studio!). I’ve only had salads here, but their breakfast selection was great! I loved my eggs and toast, which came with sweet potato (win!), and my friend’s breakfast pizza looked amazing. 


STUDYING. Part two of my Anatomy test coming up tomorrow! Ps. that’s a scapula, don’t even worry about it.

Writing this post reinforced that i apparently only do three things these days: eat breakfast foods, go to barre, and study. #creatureofhabit

    Um, those pancakes?!?! YUM! We went out for brunch yesterday after my long run and I had a Mexican breakfast burrito. Pretty much a highlight of the weekend. I also saw Pitch Perfect for the first time Saturday… Our house is dominated by man TV and action movies, so it was a welcome change of pace 🙂
