A preview of 105

Heyyyyy ๐Ÿ˜€ Hope youโ€™re all having a wonderful morning!

The pilot and I went to go check out 105degrees yesterday afternoon when I got back from a cardio sesh at the gym. After getting lost in a neighborhood of swanky wanky mansions, we were happy to find it ๐Ÿ™‚

I was greeted by a friendly face:


Megan! I havenโ€™t seen this girl in way too long!

And yes, that would be Matthew Kenney in the background:D

Matthew gave us a tour of the restaurant:


We checked out the shop, which sells a lovely variety of goodies including these kale chips:


Water bottles:




Come here, ice creamโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ˜€

And we saw the kitchen and the school, which is located next to the restaurant. Classes start on Tuesday!!!


Each student has their own workstation with a cutting board, drawers full of their own tools and gadgets, and their own fridge. On the left you can see the wheat grass and sprouting wall. Pretty snazzy, eh??

I also picked up my cheffer outfits:


Everyone that we met seemed to be truly friendly and very passionate about what they do. Iโ€™m super stoked about the upcoming weeks ๐Ÿ˜€

After our little tour, the pilot and I hit up Pei Wei (one of my favorites!) for lonchi.

I ordered the kids teriyaki shrimp with brown rice, steamed instead of fried, add vegetables.

They brought me out the adult size, so I munched all of the toppings and half the rice.


The best part: (I donโ€™t actually eat the cookie, because well, it tastes like cardboard)


Thank you fortune cookie, for making me feel better about my lifeโ€™s dilemma ๐Ÿ˜‰

We also went to THE MALL which is dangerously close to school. I see some shopping in my future ๐Ÿ˜€

When we got back to the hotel, I had to try on the cheffer outfit.


I know they arenโ€™t supposed to be form-fitting in any way, but the pants are GIANT. I kind of look like a sweet 80โ€™s rapper ๐Ÿ™‚


Alright guys, Iโ€™m off to take the pilot to the airport (wahhhhh!) and then running with Michelle โ€“I just met her yesterday and sheโ€™s amazing ๐Ÿ˜€

See ya soon with the bit of news I told ya about ๐Ÿ˜‰

Have a great day!

  19. Melissa on September 7, 2009 at 10:34 am

    I loved what you ordered at Pei Wei. I never know what to get there. Their adult sized meals are like two meals and tons of them are loaded with calories! Your meal looked perfect! Thanks!!
    105 looks awesome. Enjoy your experience…it looks like it’s going to be a blast and I cannot wait to follow your journey through it!!

  32. Lara (Thinspired) on September 7, 2009 at 4:50 pm

    You look totally adorable in the chef’s outfit! I love, love that fortune cookie message ๐Ÿ™‚ When ordering something like that delicious shrimp teriyaki, it wouldn’t occur to me to order it steamed instead of fried. Such a great tip…thank you!

  33. The Formerly Anonymous Yvette on September 7, 2009 at 7:20 pm

    So freaking cool! Congrats and I think you should negotiate a commission for all the new students you’re inspiring!
