Weekend Recap: Hollywood Bowl & Fifty Shades

Happy Monday friends!  What a fabulous weekend!

Friday morning Marco and I were offered box seats to the opening of the Hollywood Bowl.  Every season my company buys two boxes for this event.  Someone last minute backed out so I was offered the tickets.  It was our first time attending the bowl and boy did it surpass our expectations.  Since we were in a box a three course meal was served with a bottle of wine.  Talk about fancyJ  Reba McEntire and Chaka Kahn were inducted into the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame hosted by Julie Andrews.  Fireworks ended the show, it was beyond magical.  If you ever have the chance to attend a show here, do it!  You won’t be disappointed.

I wanted to go home and watch the Sound of Music.

YOLO and HOLA, LA's Phil Kids Wind Ensemble
Sidenote: The conductor who leads the children's program scored Marco's senior film.  It was pretty cool!

Saturday was errands day.  Since we decided not to move we wanted to invest some $$$ into our place.  New bedding, organizational stuff, new dish towels, flowers for our porch.  Our first stop of the day was Chick-Fil-A in Redondo Beach and then 5+ hours of shopping.  Spending 2 hours in Target was amazing.  
M's best friend/DP, Sing, in ATL shooting Luda and Diddy's new music video-random but I had to share:)

Love free samples from Target

Later that night we went over to our friends house, drank wine and talked about movies.  One of my friends works for a top management agency and a Producer has been named for Fifty Shades of Grey.  It hasn’t been announced, but I like where the studios heads at.  We also talked about casting Mr. Grey.  Supposedly there is some serious talks with a certain Hollywood actor to play the role and I will say I haven’t seen him on anyone’s suggest casting list.  The dude can act, but not sure if looks wise the roll is for him.  Like yall I am dying to see who they end up casting, with schedules and contracts until shooting starts anything can change.  Hollywood is so fickle. 

Sunday we slept in, relaxed, indulged in some fast food, dropped off items at Goodwill, walked to the beach, grocery shopped and planted flowers. 

This never gets old
All in all it was a great weekend!  How was yours?

Love the Hollywood Bowl! My parents have a box (not as nice as the one you were in!) and it isn't summer without going to the bowl!

I'm dying to see who they cast for 50 shades bc I feel like it could make a break this movie.

You look so pretty in that first photo! That's so rad that you got the tickets instead. I've never been to the Hollywood Bowl, but it's definitely on my bucket list. And Julie Andrews no less??? You lucky girl!

Umm and my Target down here has been holding out on me! You got free samples?? What the..
