Luckily, the office calls me whenever they need me to sub in, or when they have a big project. So I've been a working girl yesterday, today, and now tomorrow!
But that also meant hours and hours of scanning. So my lunch break was super precious to me. I walked from the office to the nearest Trader Joes (the entire area is literally a block or two away from the beach) to go get lunch.
I bought a Turkey Club Wrap for $4, and ate it outside in the sun. It was really good, but I'm not sure I would buy it again. I should have stuck with my usual salad or california rolls.
I still had 35 minutes of my lunch break left after I finished lunch, so I went to go move my car from where the underground parking structure to outside by my building. I got a little distracted with my camera and the self timer button, and had my own little photo shoot inside the parking garage. I wanted to put up a picture of my work outfit, but I am very very unsatisfied with the pictures. I'm blaming it on bad lighting and the fact that high waisted pants look better in person then they do in pictures.
After work, my mom and I went on about a 3 mile walk with our dog Roxy. She's a chocolate lab and is adorable and SO annoying sometimes. But I wuvvvv her. You can definitely expect to hear more about her in the future!
Now to backtrack a little bit... last night I went back to Los Angeles to go out to eat with my college friends one last time before they go home. Since some of them live in Canada, Chicago, or even just an inconvenient few hours away, I was glad I could get to say a proper goodbye.
We ended up going to Bottega Louie, which is a really cool restaurant, that I've been to once or twice before. It is a beautiful building that really has that "hip" LA vibe (I know I sound like a grandma). Even the it's really loud and kind of dark, the food, cute waiters, people watching, and famous pastries and desserts make it a place you should definitely visit.
|Apparently this building used to be a jewelry store which is why it has such a unique interior|
|Their infamous macaroons. I've had a few before and their flavors are amazing. Everyone needs to try vanilla (duh) and earl tea. It's delicious (and pretty)!|
|This picture does not do it justice at all.|
|Since it was so dark in there, here is a picture with the flash. You know, just in case you want to get a clearer picture so you can drool over you keyboard a little more.|
