Yesterday, I had to go up to LA to meet my agent. Afterwards, JGago (who drove me up there) and I went to Santa Monica's 3rd and Promenade to have lunch and walk around.
We ate at Le Pain Quotidien (The Daily Bread). It was diviiiiine. Very authentic French country.
I ordered a tartine with ricotta, figs, and agave nectar. To die for. My phone pictures don't do it justice.
Jess ordered the lemon custard for dessert. I was far more interested in hitting up the Coffee Bean for a pure chocolate light. I love those things. It's like a frozen blended hot cocoa with no sugar added. Score!
Her dessert was pretty, though.
Then, we walked around to check out all the shops. I was being good (frugal), so I didn't buy anything. Next week, we're going to Disneyland for my birthday, so I'm saving up for that. We decided to walk the two blocks to the ocean, where we spotted the pier.
San Diego has nothing like this - we were SO excited. We walked all the way to the end, despite the fact that it was freezing. We were rewarded with an adorable little seal. My camera's memory was full, though, so that was the last picture I could take. I forgot my camera. I know. Bad bloggie. Sorry. :(
Today, I've just been playing catch-up. Hubby and I plan to go for a run tonight and spend some quality time together. I'm making spaghetti and salad for dinner.
