The Calorie Counter & Backpacker

I wore this to a dinner with my friends...we went to Outback Steakhouse. Did you know they now put the calorie count next to the menu items? WHY! Does not need to know how much a Bloomin' Onion is in calories! (I still ate it) Although, it does deter you from adding extra fries on the side.

The weather in SoCal has been REDUNKULOUS you guys. I'm talking, it's like 80-degrees in the day, low 60's at night. Apparently we don't believe in much of a winter, and definitely don't believe in spring.

I've been taking advantage of this by doing what I've never done before...HIKING! Apparently that's like, the hip thing to do in LA...WHO KNEW? It's such a great workout, without you really knowing you're working out. I lie. Sometimes it's painful. Like is-this-hill-done-oh-when-will-this-pain-end-painful. But the feeling of accomplishment, plus the views (when the smog is gone) makes it all worthwhile. And yes...I take Ezio! Hikers are so friendly, like almost-scary friendly. Dogs are off their leashes, people offer your pooches water, and you can literally strike conversations with any passerbyer (definitely not the case when you're on the streets of LA).

  3. ezio is a cutie!
    i'm always so scared to let my dog go leashless...he thinks being chased is a game so he'd probably take off... :(

    love all the pics!

  4. Hmm I keep hearing this thing about sense of accomplishment and stellar views when it comes to hiking, but I would argue I can get just the same amount of accomplishment from doing some power walking all afternoon shopping some outdoor boutiques!

  5. your dog is so ridiculously cute i want to puke. also, i'm loving the weather. except it got cold today and today just happened to be the day i forgot my coat. blergh

    i think i sort of like hiking but i don't think the bf does. consequently, i haven't been hiking in 3-ish years. which trail did you take?

  6. Hey lady! Ooooh I love the Bloomin' Onion! That's a cute, chic black and white look! Were you guys at Runyon? We should go to Runyon one day for a (short) hike :) Also, I moved on to my own .com- would be fabulous if you could update my link to http://www.wreckedstellar.com - talk to you soon! xo, mel

  7. Great pictures! Love the heels! Did you get your top at Nordstrom?



  8. So jealous of your weather and how do you manage to look great doing everything, even hiking?

  9. What a cutie Patootie!All your fur babies are adorable.
