Sharable Moments: August 2016

The myrtle on our street has reached full bloom, and it’s raining pink and white flowers everywhere we look.  How did August arrive and end so quickly? This month had me on the road quite a bit. But with travel, comes inspiration, and this month was therefore, full of inspiration.

  • FullSizeRender4Wednesday, August 3- Puddle jumper from LAX to MRY (Monterrey) for my dinner with Dennis.  Forecast?  Smoke: Both the air & the oysters.
  • IMG_2958Friday, August 5- Puddle Jumper back to LAX, with a soft landing into the Wine Pavillion down the street (aka. John, Victor and Alisha’s place). Great to be back home with some of my favorite people.
  • Saturday, August 6- OC Fair and then dinner with GIANT TOMAHAWK steaks with our great friends D&C and B&T.
  • IMG_2971Sunday, August 7- Neighborhood Mixer two doors down with an experimental Tahini, Pear & Honey Tart. Not perfect yet, but still pretty good.
  • Monday, August 8- 5 am wake up call for on-site Training in Torrance. I deserved some Tapas & Vino after this long day.IMG_2991
  • Thursday, August 11- Happy Thursday! A celebration of an under appreciated day.
  • Friday, August 12- Lunch and learn with my ladies @ work.
  • Saturday, August 13- Back to Yoga! It this getting harder or is it just me? Dinner @ Centro in Tustin.
  • Sunday, August 14- Ahhhh… fresh air, cool breeze. A day on the Silhouette never disappoints.FullSizeRender2
  • Monday, August 15 & Tuesday, August 16- 5:00 am wake up call for training in LA. Man my feet are starting to hurt!
  • Wednesday, August 16- Time to network! CalCPA ABC night was a great turnout!
  • Thursday, August 17- Heading back up north! SFO here I come! Saw the Bay Bridge light display in all it’s splendor. Vegan eggplant rollatini might appear in my menu at some point. 
  • Friday, August 17- Successful on site training at an SFO firm, with simulcast across the nation!… but oh, my poor feet.
  • IMG_3047Saturday, August 20- Confirmed: Yoga is definitely getting harder. Biked to DTSA for fish taco lunch & craft beer.  The coconut shrimp tacos are to die for!
  • Sunday, August 21- Kayaking in Los Alamitos harbor followed by a Farmers Market stroll.  Bloodies were my reward. Two please!IMG_3077
  • Monday, August 22- The Dark Ages begin. A challenging week at work.
  • Saturday, August 27- Pre-B-Day Boat Cruise with my besties and paninis. 
  • Sunday, August 28- A pool party refreshed my mind and FPNA Garden Swap refreshed my fridge. 
  • Monday, August 29- Butter cake at Mastros added a sweetness to my day.

Next month: Alaska, India, and turning 40 😱 oh my!
