with some of robby’s coworkers, we went to the rooftop bar at the standard. i recommend it. very l.a. (& we also realized the place is way too cool for us with its swanky pool & waterbed-filled bubble-pods. but we’re ok with that.) the drinks were good, & the people-watching was even better.
we made this (coconut shrimp deliciousness).
this has become my favorite lunch. so simple & so summery.
we ate a lot of meals at our cozy little table for two.
added a few new plants, including this little guy…
& a few tucked into the corner of our patio: a gardenia, some more foliage, spearmint that is currently sprouting & a hydrangea (not shown). cross your fingers they don’t all die by the end of the week!
