This shirt needs to be real.
i haven’t blogged in awhile. i know, i know. and there’s a fair share of stuff going on.
so what’s new with your favorite east coast livin la doll? a whole lotta…
work: got my store! it was kind of a give in that i was going to get it. i deserve it and all and am more than ready for it, but really, mother Megan just didn’t want to deal with the wrath of me if she gave it to someone else. i’m ok with that. if all goes according to plans, my new store is scheduled to open december 4th.
play: i just need to move to brooklyn. i’m there too much for my own good these days. it still amazes me that from jersey i can get there in roughly 35 minutes.
when in bk i…
eat a ton of ice cream at oddfellows
i chase countless sunsets.
seasons change: as we roll into fall (there are seasons out here for all my cali folks back home), my summer was swell. explored jersey more which makes me fall in love with the garden state countless times over and over again.
cape may lighthouse
ferris wheel at wildwoods boardwalk
i picked my first apple
roamed around in a corn maze
took it all in, never forgetting.
still single: i’ve been online dating for a few months now. it is what is like to call discouraging at best. tho during a phone call with dad last week i was reminded that 32 is approaching and well, i’m no spring chicken. his words not mine. i talk daily about deleting my profile. just tonight i said it. i think the time is near. not in the sense that i have a time limit on when i would like to meet someone. i actually enjoy being single. maybe too much. i love the freedom of doing things when i want. i never let myself down with canceled plans or tings came up. but i am at the happiest point in my life so i think it’s the right time to let someone in. i just don’t believe online dating is how people should meet. a catalog of choices. search, read, look, for your perfect pick all for them to not message you back. no thanks. i’d rather pet a cute dog then look up to see a super cool guy and convo starts there. that’s how you meet someone.
home: i’ll be home for christmas! thanks mom! can’t wait. but i have been tempted to book a 2.5 day trip home. i need some cali in my life.
32: in a little over a month that will be my new age. i’m ready for it. taking a day trip to montauk. finally!!! i’ve been wanting to go there for yeeeeeaaarrrrsss. that all encompassing meet me in montauk movie moment will all make sense and will be coming to a hip on yours truly soon. happy birthday to me.
welp, that’s it for now. kit, if you don’t already, follow me on the gram for the daily dose of my dayZ. and remember,
what the eff is wrong with the peeps at food republic?! if people start ordering this ish i. will. die.
this song is in my top five all time favorites. it has been for many years. but until a few weeks ago, the first chorus never really made sense. until dan and his little red shoes took me here…
this is where, “between the viaducts of your dreams” all made sense. full circle.
i had already fallen completly smitten with new jersey but this day i fell in love.
i couldn’t believe i was in new jersey. i couldn’t believe people knock new jersey. all that do, just don’t know. this place instantly became somepleace very special to me. i had just the right person in mind who i wanted to bring to experience this great wonder. that now will not be happening, but i’m sure he’ll find his way here…
but really, jersey for days….
i was in awe. i still am everytime i look at the pics i took. it was so magical. as i looked around i knew this is where i should be right now in life.
thank you little red shoes.
yes we hiked up in sandals and i, in a maxi dress
"in another time, in another place…"
HAPPY 20TH CHIPOTLE! JULY 13TH 1993-2013
if you were not one of the 39,800 that were there, you missed out. big time.
this was bittersweet for me as i was sad i was not working the event but i was beyond thrilled that i somehow managed to wrangle up oh, you know, 8 of my closest friends from la and get us all up to sf on the same weekend.
food, ideas, and music bringing people together y’all. i mean, that’s the whole point to cultivate anyways.
since i wasn’t confined to working a booth i had a whole list of to-dos at the festival.
first up, eat shophouse!
yum, yum, yum. just as damn tasty as i remembered it from last october. the sunset and vine location in hollywood opened up this week. so get there la’ers asap.
next was a demo. miss amanda freitag always put on a good show so we arrived early and snagged some pretty good seats.
cannot wait to try her pork on pork she cooked up here when her restaurant opens up in ny later this year.
just as amanda was finishing up, lp was a singing. so we pretty much ran over and mosied our way in near the stage. into the wild is what put lp on my radar a few years ago but there is nothing like hearing her belt out tokyo sunrise live. word out on the interwebs is i may have been vined singing and dancing to wasted love.
i finally got to make my custom loomstate tee. i’ve had this design in mind since cultivate chi last september!
by the time we were done rocking out to lp, we wandered the artisan tent and beer hall. by then, the park was packed and the line to get in was crazy town. i heard people say they waited 2hrs for big gay ice cream. mind you it was balls cold out!
i got separated from my friends a million times so i made my way to the vip text to say hi to my chipotle family. i heard a little of walk the moon, noshed on some 4505 chichas, and drank a patron margie (soooo good btw).
we didn’t get to see mayer hawthorne bc it was too damn cold. as we left around 4:30pm the line to get in looked like this…
with still at least a hundred more behind the gal in the green jacket.
congrats team chipotle for a successful cultivate sf #1. until next year and…
