5 Things Friday: Updates & TV Shows


4 scenes from the week

1. I love happy hours.

I met up with some girls at 55 Tavern + Bowl on Monday for a beer and this amazing Paleo burger with a plantain bun.

We made an impromptu walk over to the new Nails by Priscilla for pedis.


2. Work is keeping me super busy. But hey, I am getting paid an extra 9 hours this week!

2 after school training sessions

IMG_4908I also volunteered to chaperone a middle school dance and boy, it was awkward.

Somehow I got roped into a cross country meet tomorrow morning…

Before I head to a new hire orientation. At least there’s happy hour with co-workers afterwards…

3. I am not nor have I ever been gluten intolerant. Thank goodness ’cause I love my bread.

I attempted to go to Savor Santa Ana after the above training. It was packed though so I stopped by Crave for this BLTA and the A (for avocado) is essential and essentially California.


4. I finally bought an iPad! I got the first iPad Air now that its price dropped, which also means the refurbished ones are cheaper too!

5 TV shows

1. “Being Mary Jane”

Gabrielle Union and Morris Chestnut were staple actors in black romantic comedies from the 90s-2000s. Anything they do, I’ll watch even to this day. This show is dramatic and is some sort of first for BET. I can’t wait for the next season. How does she still look so young after so long?

2. “Accidentally on Purpose”

Jenna Elfman is back too! I didn’t like her in “Dharma and Greg” but love her in this show. Maybe I’m yearning for TV shows from my childhood… It’s simple and comedic.

3. “About A Boy”

When I saw David Walton on the cover for this show, I had to watch it. I always see him here or there (“New Girl”) but never for extended periods of time. Minnie Driver is also on the show.

4. “Gilmore Girls” on Netflix

For some, “Dawson’s Creek” was vital to their childhood or teenage years. I didn’t like it then and I’ve only attempted to watch a few episodes now. However, we all agree that our love for the “Gilmore Girls” runs deep. I will be watching all the seasons again and wishing to visit New England one day.

5. “Supernatural”

I was supposed to sleep one night when I put this on. I got so engrossed in it that I couldn’t sleep. First off, Dean (from Gilmore Girls) is in it and Jensen Ackles… well, he’s hot. I’m shocked because I don’t typically like sci-fi.

  1. Plantain bun sounds amazing. While I also don’t have any gluten intolerance, I tend to like my meats by themselves, so I’m often bunless.

    My new TV addiction is “How to get away with Murder”. One of the best new pilots I’ve seen, but I love anything Shonda Rhimes touches. 🙂
