I am dedicating my day to completing my Christmas cards. I send them out each year and it’s always a pain, but this year I am using a new company, Minted, and it’s so much easier.
Get as many things check off my list so I can sleep well tonight. When I have a lot of loose ends and things start to pile up, it’s hard for me to sleep.
To put out a great and entertaining podcast, so my listeners can escape anything in their lives, their city or country that is troubling them.
Drop off some beef jerky and supply at our local firehouse.
Think before you tweet. Waiting a day or having a friend read it before you put it out there into the world, can save you a lot of trouble.
A Day in My Life:
What do you love most about Your City?
I love the weather, and that you can go to the beach, the mountains and the desert all within a few hours.
Favorite breakfast meal & restaurant?
Avocado toast, crispy bacon and some pooched eggs with a goat cheese topper. Fresh squeezed orange juice and a latte.
What are you doing at:
6:00 AM – Still sleeping but knowing that it’s almost over.
10:00 AM – Meeting a Real Housewife to discuss the reunion she just shot.
12:00 PM – Favorite Lunch spot/meal?
Cava, it’s like chipotle for Mediterranean meals. It’s all bowls and I love a good bowl.
7:00 PM – I am going over history homework with my 6th grade son or watching 90 day fiancé.
11:00 PM – I am asleep and just starting to have some vivid dream.
What drink do you need to get through the day and at the end (and how many)?
Coffee and not everyday but most days I like to end the day with a well chilled buttery chardonnay from the valley.
Most used App/Favorite Instagram Account?
My favorite app is Maps. I am horrible with directions. I have lived in LA all my life but until this app came out and could tell me exactly where I have to go, I was lost.
My favorite instagram account is my own, where I post funny content to make people laugh.
What should everyone try at least once?
Everyone should try listening to my podcast. A lot of people still don’t know how to listen to podcasts and I think they are missing out.
Where do you enjoy getting lost?
I love just getting lost in Target, because even if I can’t find what i’m looking for, there is always something out that catches my eye.
