Following in Britt’s footsteps I’m going to post my picks of the week!
Restaurant: I’ve got Thai on the mind! Mmm. For some reason I have been CRAVING Thai food. It could be because they’ve ordered it at work multiple times this week and I’ve been good and not indulged. But here’s two great places to grab some Thai in the Valley.
Thai Rama - I discovered this place on my birthday last year as it was right down the block from my old apartment. Now, it’s like 6 blocks away, CMON! I judge a Thai place on the deliciousness of the pad thai. Thai Rama’s is pretty great. They are also very decently priced. We frequent the Thai Rama for it’s closeness and upon recent discovery, the FREE delivery!
So check out Thai Rama if you’re around the Glendale area and craving that Thai. Added Bonus: THE cutest Asian man on the planet works there and always brightens my day!

Another Thai place that I have not tried the Pad Thai (so by my standards I am neutral) is Kinnara in Van Nuys. I recommend the Buddha Salad w/ tofu no onions. It’s really delicious. They are also really decently priced and the staff is wonderful. Kinnara also has the added benefit of ordering online, which comes in handy for the office.
So, if you’re a bit deeper into the valley and need a Thai fix, check out Kinnara.

Radio Station: I’ll admit I haven’t been rocking the AM/FM this week. I’ve been recovering from the Marathon (and trying to cope with taking running time off) by listening to my new running playlist on my iPod. What can I say? I’m a running dork. So for my radio station pick this week – if you have an iTrip and looking for a station that comes in pretty well all over the city, I would tune it to 97.3. Works like a charm!
Video: I have two video picks this week.
The first one is a gem that Brittany came home with last night. If you know me personally you know I may be a “little obsessed” with the feline species. Needless to say, I fell in love!
The second Video pick I have this week is a Funny Or Die. A number of people I know, support and love dearly worked on this. So proud of my pals! Check it out and love it too! Follow the link to view it.
Get Away From It All Spot: My job gets to me more often than not and when I have clearance to escape for an hour a day I enjoy the Sepulveda Basin. It’s a wildlife park with a lake in the middle. There’s always a chance to see some eagles and take in nature. Who thought this place would be smack dab in the middle of Van Nuys! It’s quiet and I like to take a walk around the whole lake. So not only can I get my thoughts straight I can burn some calories too!

Where You Can Find Me This Weekend/What I’m Working On: These goes hand in hand for me this week! I’m working on all 3 of the side projects I’ve mentioned down in an earlier post. Kevin’s CLMT is shooting on Sunday so I have been painting the past few days. I can honestly say I have not completed a painting or made a legit painting until my 23rd year of life! And now I’ve got 3 under my belt.
Saturday I will be building easels for Kevin’s shoot and Sunday we’ll be shooting this bad boy. Check back for an update about the shoot and hopefully some pictures.
Enjoy the amazing weather and keep it safe this weekend!
