The weekend was filled with good times with friends in Ventura, Los Angeles, and Orange County. It was also filling with great food!

For a amateur racecar-admiring newbie, this new prototype is at least very interesting to look at. It’s the first electric racecar designed to compete in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2011.
It looks great, sounds great (0-60mph in under 4 seconds), but if Le Mans races of electric cars are what lie in the future, would they be as exciting to listen to?
In any case, the point of these races are to prove the full potential of car technology today, so it’d be pretty interesting to see how this one tests out against the top diesel/gas cars.

Earlier I posted a blog about a hottle I came across online. Never knew what a ‘hottle’ was until I stumbled upon it on Sur La Table’s web site. Their own employees at the store didn’t even know what I was asking for. One of them half-jokingly assumed that the term, hottle, comes from “hot drink” and “bottle”. It all started making sense. That’s all I wanted it for: put my extra hot drink in this bottle.
A good friend graciously bought me one, which was just $3.95. Here is a photo of it with the excess of my Good Earth tea and honey! And yes, it keeps your drink warm for long!
Surprisingly, not a lot of places stay open late in LA, or at least here in Studio City. Besides the bars and clubs, there are few choices for late night grub.
Abbie and I came across Bob’s, and we think it is our favorite local late-night spot. Located on Riverside in Toluca Lake, the place stays busy around midnight, serves breakfast all day, and comes with a friendly staff of people. Vintage, nostalgic, it looks great, feels great, and even better, the french toast was deeeeeelish.
Summary of today:
-Farmer’s Market, watching kids in the petting zoo, sampling cherries
-Shopping on Ventura Blvd.
-Checking out Annenberg Beach House in Santa Monica
-Football and frisbee at the beach
-Back to the house for smoothies, cheese, and strawberries
-Finishing the evening with “Enemy of the State” on the Roku
This bench outside Big Sugar Bakeshop is exactly what I had in mind in creating a bench with an attached flower/plant box for the backyard.
Can’t go wrong with $10 for this cute tee! Sadly this store was closed, but I’m definitely buying it this week for a very special girl :).
We have a loquat tree next to the house!
