5 for Friday

1. “If you took one-tenth the energy you put into complaining and applied it to solving the problem, you’d be surprised by how well things can work out… Complaining does not work as a strategy. We all have finite time and energy. Any time we spend whining is unlikely to help us achieve our goals. And it won’t make us happier.”― Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture via swissmiss

2. It's true, I am totally one of those people who says it's SOOOO cold here when it dips below 60 degrees. 

3. If you live in Los Angeles or are planning a visit, do yourself a favor and make a reservation (book a ticket) at Trois Mec. 2 Fridays ago, JC and I had a date night there and it was easily one of the best meals we've ever had. Totally worth leaving Jack with Ahpo for a couple hours. I didn't take a single photo there, but did take a menu and business card as a souvenir. Also, like most of my favorite meals I got ZERO photos of the actual food. 4. We are so excited for these two wonderful people who are getting married in April 2014. This is Jack happily sitting next to his Aunty Courtney and soon to be Uncle Jon.5. If you're like me and have waited until the last minute for holiday cards, well you are in luck with Persnickety Prints. There's a ton of fabulous designs to choose from and the quality of the cards are impeccable. I commissioned Jennifer Simmons to do a front and back design for our very first holiday cards. Now if they would magically address themselves for mailing out, we'd be all set.
