What a gorgeous, lovely weekend! Friday night I ate dinner while getting ready to meet up with my cousin. I had one of my new favorite combos — Dr. Praeger veggie burger smushed on a piece of toasted Newsroom 9 Grain bread. Appearances are deceiving, I swear!

I had another forgotten favorite — sliced tomato topped with salt & basil.

It was SO GREAT to see my cousin! He’s lived in Switzerland for the past 6 years, working as a fashion designer for Hugo Boss in Milan. I know, so cool, right?! I met up with him and some of his friends at a party in the hills, which was tons of fun. I started getting super sleepy and hungry, so I ducked out, thinking it was around 2 AM…when I got into my car, I found out it was actually 4:30! No wonder I was ready to eat! I forgot that Europeans head out to bars around 3:30 AM, so the late hour was completely normal for them. Not so much for me ๐Ÿ™‚

When I got back to my place, I had a slice of toast with jelly before crawling into bed.

I still woke up early Saturday morning and had a nice day relaxing with some good eats…

Later, I headed across the street with Julia & her mom for a glass of wine and some appetizers. They make a mean pita and hummus plate over there! (What is with me and hummus lately??) I meant to head down to Laguna Beach after but it got late and I got tired, so I called it an early (ish) night. This morning I woke up early and grabbed a bowl of the usual yogurt mess before driving down to Laguna. A group of us spent an amazing day down at the beach. The waves were wicked high and all my clothes & towel got soaked at one point, but besides that, it was literally perfect. (And even the wave-soaking was pretty funny!) The weather has been a little questionable lately but it was sunny and warm until we left around 6. We played some bocce ball, tanned, took a long walk on the beach, read some magazines…amazing ๐Ÿ™‚

When I got back to my place, I ate another toast with poached egg and some broiled eggplant and cheetahs.

Now I am just winding down with some TV and dessert, snacking on a baby-sized yogurt mess and this guy:

I don’t want this weekend to end! You know what’s going to happen, I am definitely staying up super late tonight to prolong Sunday. Does anyone else ever do that?? Good thing you can always count on Law & Order to be running at least one marathon on Sunday nights ๐Ÿ™‚
