    Trying to get back into yoga too! It is working and I am loving it and realized how much I missed it.

    Bahaha, it sounds like Shiraz is a new cast member on Shahs of Sunset. THAT is a season I would watch. I want to come to LA and eat Korean BBQ with you. It might have to happen.

    You’ll get that yoga groove – just like I’ll get my running groove! That’s the one thing I’m working on the most right now. If I want to get ready for a fall half marathon, I gotta get crackin!

    I love these posts…I just might borrow your idea some time!

    Lately I’ve been…working, eating chocolate covered popcorn, breaking in new running shoes, hosting , and planning and then hosting again and making tons of food for BBQ’s!

      I’m still working with them part-time. (On the retail products, not at the Cafe in Uptown)

    Hurray for time with Mom! Always the best. :) That Korean BBQ looks ah-mazing.

    Lately I’ve been enjoying my time at home for my bro’s graduation weekend.

    Good luck with the recipes for French Meadow Bakery! That’s awesome!

    How do you eat out so much and not feel the affects of, ahem, weigh gain. I want to keep my social life active and enjoy myself, but I feel like eating out is hindering my weight loss efforts!! Any survival guide to eating out would be fabulous:)

      That is a great question! Why don’t I work on a post about it, it is more complex than a simple answer! :)

    I need to get back into my yoga groove, too. I’ve been in a serious non-yoga rut! Looks like you’ve been having a fabulous time. Love it!

    Must try that juice combo! Sounds like you’ve been having an awesome time! Lately I’ve been loving gardening season, starting a new blog, and getting back into my strength training routine.

    Whenever my mom and I spend time together and we want to eat out, we always go to Korean BBQ places, well we like going to Tofu House, which was the same sides as the Korean BBQ. We love the simple food and all the variety.

    I want to make a trip to Venice Beach, at least once this summer. Rent a bike and just explore.
