This past weekend was filled with lots of lucy bear cuddles. Mike went down to SD to do a big superbowl weekend with his friends and that left just the blair girls to play~~ ^^
BESIDES superbowl sunday~~ two fun events were celebrating beautiful natalie’s first birthday party & eggslut in grad cental station! xo
Isn’t natalie just gorgeous? I’m obsessed with this cutie pie.
Lucy was SUCH a trooper that day. She played with all the babies (tried to lick them to death really…) and let them grab her fur/whiskers/face. After a few hours Lucy retreated to some nice shade underneath the table where she sneaked a few bites from the trash. sneaky sneaky ^^
These three ladies and I have really grown the most beautiful friendship over the last 4-5 years. We started in the same department at UCLA and then each branched out into different positions and places on campus. And the really fun part…is that in just a few months I’ll have a little girl too! So excited to have play dates, share fun memories and just our families together! xoxo
as soon as we got home, lucy bear PASSED OUT with her leash on. lol the park, the kids and all the excitement was just a little too much. hehe the next few sleeping pics are all later that night. poor lucy couldn’t keep her eyes open.
Sunday I checked out grand central station with my old roommie and fellow chang-sta. I got to try three places at the same time which REALLY made my inner fattie dance with joy. These days since alchie is NOT an option, I’ve been trying to de-stress with delicious food and drinks. healthy right? lol
G&B is like Go Get Em Tiger on Larchmont. It’s a bar feel where you can walk up and order a drink (rather than wait in a line like normal coffee shops). I ordered a sweet latte but what I REALLY wanted was the $8 Shake: 4 shots of espresso, ice cream and cream). The shake tasted like heaven in your mouth. I only had one sip since I’m preggo and can’t drink TOO much caffiene. WAHHHH. next time…
Next up…Eggslut!! This is a new place that has been all the rage. The lines are insane and so we thought that superbowl sunday would be the perfect time~~ which ended up being RIGHT! We waited only about 30 minutes in line (as opposed to over an hour) and got a seat at the bar right away too. clutch since it would have sucked to stand and eat.
arugula, red wine vinaigrette, served with manchego cheese on top
pics of beautiful grand central market and restaurants. not pictured is the most amazing taco i ended my little food tour with. it was next door to eggslut and the line was ridiculously long~~ BUT the best part was that they were giving out samples of chicken tacos (aka a whole taco) and it was EXACTLY what I needed to end my time at Grand Central Station. LOL
gorgeous view right?! love downtown LA
this little pic below is what my day after work looks like. i’ve been taking lucy out on longer walks so that i can get some more exercise in. i’m worried about gaining too much weight, not being strong enough for labor, and just…my health all around. AND with crazy admissions season right now, these walks after work has really helped me relax and de-stress. lucy is SOOO happy to be out and smelling everything that it always brings a smile to my face. =) can’t wait until the days get longer and we have more sunny nights. xo
AND it’s already FRIDAYYYY. SO GLAD. This was a really tough week and I’m looking forward to relaxing. We’re going to mike’s parents house in palm springs and i can’t wait to get away for the weekend. *sigh *
TGIF Ya’ll~~~ Hope you have an awesome weekend!! xoxo
