I love pizza! I could eat it any time of day. The best pizza I have ever had was at Grimaldi's in Brooklyn! I love a thin crust. Sometimes we get the already made dough from Fresh n Easy and make our own pies at home. This weekend I tried making pizza dough. I've been wanting to make my own dough for a while. It turned out pretty good. However I felt the mess just wasn't worth it. I didn't take any pictures because my fingers and kitchen were a sticky mess.

Boston's Flour Bakery&Cafe

I have a new favorite cookbook! Flour BY Joanne Chang with Christie Matherson. It is AMAZING! So many yummy treats. I love the oatmeal maple scones! Better than Starbucks and not dry at all! I also like her fresh take on rice Krispy Treats. I made those for a school bake sale & they were a huge hit. The book has great pictures that really stimulate the senses. Some day I would love to visit this bakery in Boston.

Los Angeles Bonaventure

This view is from our room. To the far left is the Hollywood sign but it blends in with the clouds/smog.
Have I mentioned I LOVE California!!!
I tried taking pictures with my camera but there was just to much flash.

Sometimes a blackberry takes the best picture.

The view is so cool from the revolving restaurant at the top of the Westin Bonaventure hotel. You can see the Disney opera house. The Bonaventure hotel was a fun place to stay. It has it's own brewery. The elevators are on the outside of the hotel and are all glass. You feel like you are in Charlie and the Chocolate factory shooting through the sky. It also has a great outside pool that is on the 3rd floor. You are surrounded by skyscrapers while you swim.

Revlon LA Run/Walk

Kristina and I at the start of the day.

May 7 I ran in the 18th annual EIF Revlon run/walk for women. The run supports all women cancers not just breast cancer. It's a great way to spend Mother's Day weekend. Every year the event gets bigger and bigger! We will differently be here again next year.

The 1st mile.

big weekend ahead...

What I'd like to do for my Birthday!

It is only Wednesday but I am looking forward to the weekend! Tomorrow is Cinco De Mayo...it is also my birthday. Easy to remember right?! On May 6 my little sis turns 30!!Friday and Saturday I'll be in L.A with my wonderful friend Kristina for the Revlon walk/run for women's cancer. I've mentioned before that we have been doing this walk every May for the past 7 years (we think it's our 7th year? we've kind of lost track) It is always an inspirational and fun get away. If you want to join or just find out my info click this link Revlon Run & Walk:

It doesn't look like I'll be getting any sewing done anytime soon. May is always a busy month!
