ragin cajun

i had lunch at this great cajun restaurant called harold & belle's. it's down near the university of spoiled children southern california and it is delicious.

bread pudding
the only other bread pudding i've ever had is my mothers and her's is incredible. this most definitely rivals it.

one of my favorite days of the year

i'm a few days late, but i just have to document the delicious couture at this year's academy awards.

my winner for the night was cate blanchett. she looked absolutely incredible in her lavender givenchy. the dress was absolutely stunning with its leather pearls and crystals.


my other favorite also happened to be lavender. mila kunis in elie saab.


obviously anne hathaway was perfection in everything she wore. my favorites were the vintage valentino (on the carpet), the silver beaded fringe oscar de la renta and the white givenchy embellished with crystals. amazing.


the silver oscar de la renta is one of my favorite anne hathaway moments. she loved that you can clearly see above. rachel zoe (my icon) did an incredible always.

i already miss the pretty dresses.

one life goal down.....

and many, many more to go!

but.......i finally learned how to knit! granted, i can only do one stitch (i apparently unknowingly purled once) but i learned how to knit. it is kind of exciting.

as you can see, i am unbelievably skilled. (thumbs up).

i learned how to knit at this great store called wildfiber, in santa monica. they have all sorts of classes and they sell yarn, books and some finished products. it's an adorable and colorful store and is incredibly cozy. the staff are also extremely nice and patient (which i needed).

do you know how to knit? what's your favorite thing that you've made? any tips for a beginner?

cheers to the weekend

the long weekend could not have started out any amazing dinner with a dear friend.

we went to the burger kitchen - a delicious restaurant specializing in burgers (kobe beef or 40 day aged, anyone?). g and i had a great time. there was almost no one there when we arrived, but many came and went while we were lingering over dinner and drinks.

g had the 'capitol' burger and she loved least i'm guessing she did, since there was nothing left.

capitol burger - beef patty, lettuce, glazed granny smith apples, applewood smoked bacon, blue cheese

i had the southwestern burger. i can, and will, say that it is unquestionably the best burger i have ever had. i want another.

southwestern burger - turkey patty, avocado, roasted corn relish, thousand island, fresh spinach, tomato

g and i also shared the sweet potato fries. of course, they were delicious and came in a seemingly never-ending cone. and don't forget the ranch.

they also have dessert, but we did not see the need for that.
