California Love


February 3, 2011

We’re leaving the cold tundra behind this afternoon for LA… checking the forecast this morning, I almost peed my pants from my excitement because it’s going to be warm, bright sunshiney, and an overall fun weekend getaway–if I could only break away from working from home to finish packing–ugh oh.

I’m hoping to do a bit of celebri-siting while we’re there–I mean, hello, it’s not LA unless you just happen to stumble across some of your favorite stars, right?? Maybe I can make some new BFF’s-ha! Don’t hold my breath, right?? 😉

So as I mentioned before, last night was our first installment of our newly created Book Club and boy did we have fun. We ate, we laughed, and we got to meet some fantastic women–I know this is going to be a lot of fun! So now I pose a question–do any of you out there do book clubs and if so, how do you structure your meetings, etc? We’re open and looking for any and all suggestions, but just really excited to reach and enrich at the same time.

Oh and I just may have given in the other day and bought my first Valentine’s Day goodie… conversation hearts–yes, I am addicted to these little sweet treats! Although, if I want to be fitting into one of these in a few short months, I assume I need to give these little indulgences to someone else–ehhh, all in moderation!

Hope all of you have a wonderful weekend… I’m signing off until Monday!! Before I leave you, here’s something I am going to try to start doing each day… a quote of the day {we all need a little inspiration/positivity, right??}:
If you knew me yesterday, please do not think that I am the same person that you are meeting today. I have experienced more of life, I have encountered new depths in those I love, I have suffered and prayed, and I am different.

    Book clubs are so fun! Mine meets once a month. At each meeting we plan the next date, book and meeting place. We somewhat discuss the book but end up hanging out most of all! I love it

    Just starting a book club myself. My gf's and I are reading Pioneer Woman's book Black Heels to Tractor wheels! We are only meeting once though at the end of the month to discuss and reminisce about the book over apps and wine! I'm in SF and am wearing short sleeves and sandals all weekend…we are definitely having some amazing weather so glad you get to enjoy a bit of it!! Have a great trip can't wait to read all about it! xoxo
