CELEBRATE: I have a birthday, a friend in town and will be throwing a small little party to celebrate myself and few work friends who recently got licensed as therapists. As you know I love to celebrate, whether it's just dinner with a friend I don't see often, a birthday or a full on party. For the little get together I am hosting, I'm going to try out a little garden party theme, so hopefully some florals, a fizzy punch and some fresh fruit. Past that I will need to consult with my private chef, aka Arthur to decide on what food. As usual, I am mainly focused on my decor. Wish me luck, can't wait to share! SEE: I'm excited for two movies opening this weekend, the sequel (or is it a prequel?) to Mamma Mia, which I actually just saw for the first time on Netflix recently. I remember having a desire to see it when it first came out, but for whatever reason never got around to it and now I am full on ready to buy a one way ticket to Greece or try to become a broadway singer. The jury is still out on which plan is more feasible, but in the meantime I am excited for the Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again premiere. Additionally, I am eager to see McQueen, a documentary about the legendary high fashion designer, Alexander McQueen who unfortunately passed at a young age and in the prime of his career. I first saw the preview for this film when I went to see another fashion icon documentary that I am still obsessing over, The Gospel According to André, which I HIGHLY RECOMMEND! DO: For Arthur's birthday I got him a series of concerts at the Hollywood Bowl and we just went to the first one, which was Seal! He is such a great performer and had an epic band playing with him. The Hollywood Bowl is just such a wonderful summer venue. I love that the venue allows you to bring your own wine and food, so in true Monica fashion I brought a bottle of brut rosé and grabbed some sub sandwiches, cheese and charcuterie from Bay Cities (aka the best Italian deli in Los Angeles). It was such a beautiful night and I am excited about the next two shows coming up in the series! Not a lot of time for rest this weekend, but sometimes that's what it takes to have fun! Enjoy!
