Chobani LA, Ellie Tank Top & More

This week has been filled with lots of weeknight adventures, because it just feels so good to CELEBRATE life with friends and FOOD!  I mean wine tasting on a Tuesday? Why not?


Some friends were so sweet to treat us to a lovely dinner at a fun new restaurant in town called Rok N Fondu. We started with a beer, garlic and sharp cheddar cheese fondu! Loved every bite (but my tummy not so much).


For my main course, I went with the Ahi Tuna! Best part was, we got to cook it ourselves on this super hot VOLCANO rock! Pretty cool right?


…but dessert by far was the best part! Chocolate and Peanut butter fondu?!! YES PLEASE!!!


As if one amazing night out to dinner wasn’t enough, I was so blessed to be invited by the awesome CHOBANI team to a wonderful A yogurt-inspired menu hosted at Hatfields in LA! Finally got to wear this darling shirt and scarf I have had in my closet for months.

5 COURSE meal?!! YA baby!



Each course was paired with a wonderful splash of wine.



Megan and I got there a little early and enjoyed a little cocktail hour before the party started!


By far my favorite courses were the Raw Marinated Kanpachi! Loved the herbed yogurt!


The butternut squash soup was phenomenal! Loved the big dollop of Chobani!


I had the vegetarian option of a crepe stuffed with some kind of barley, it was yummy! Loved the beets and roasted veggies on the side.


THE SHOCKER of the evening was the dessert! I normally don’t like anything that doesn’t have chocolate in it, but this meringue lemon tart was so mouthwatering, I ALMOST licked the plate!



It was such a lovely evening! I met so many wonderful bloggers and got to catch up with some old blogger friends!! THANK YOU Chobani for such a lovely evening, I can’t wait to do it again!

When I got home, I found Mr. Bosco keeping my side of the bed nice and warm. He was so sweet to stay up and wait for me Winking smile


Even though I got to bed at nearly midnight, some how I found the energy to hit the gym at 6am! My first week of Stage 3 of NROL is going well Smile I love being a morning person again!

I wore my new Ellie tank top and LOVED it! At first I thought it was going to feel to tight, but it wasn’t at all. The fabric is not spandex, but cotton and super breathable! I love the grey and I love that it is so slimming.

    That meal looks delicious, I didn’t even know Chobani had a resturant.
    How do we enter for the scale giveaway?

  8. What a fun tasting/wine event! I’m going to one next week, and can’t wait.

    I tried the new Ellie line, and was also very pleased! The fabric was very soft and the clothing seemed well-made. Hope they keep it up! 🙂

    I will most certainly enter (again) for the scale giveaway. I am trying to build muscle, but the scale number seems to be budging upwards making me hesitant to lift weights if that is what is causing my weight gain, but if I realize it is muscle and not fat I am ready to tear up some weights 😉
    PS- I loved this blog post. Have you tried the chobani bites (I think you have). Do you have a favorite flavor?
