First Day Back From Spain

Playing: You Could Be Happy-Snow Patrol
Reading: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
On the first day back from my wonderful trip to Spain, I had to go to my first SAT prep class, which put me in a horrible mood because let's get real, what teenager would choose SAT prep class over sleeping in? To make up for the bad start of my day, I went down to Corona Del Mar to get my favorite sandwich from Bruegger's, the lox on a garlic onion bagel. I always get the works on it-capers, tomatoes, and red onions. My dad got my hooked on this, while we were staying at the Waldorf Astoria in New York. Every morning for breakfast, I had a lox on a garlic or onion bagel at their breakfast buffet. Fun fact, they couldn't get my family two rooms next to each other like we requested, so they put us up in one of their nicest super private suites as an apology. Definitely makes my list of favorite hotels!
I walked around, shopping at all these small boutiques there and came across this lovely Thunderbird. The Thunderbird is my dream car and I've been wanting one, since I was in elementary school. I want one in pastel yellow, but this powdery blue is lovely too. Whenever I see one of these driving around, I always shout, "Thunderbird!" I did this once, when I was out with my friends, and they all stared at me...
My mum made up for forcing me to take SAT prep classes by getting me this Marc by Marc Jacobs jacket at one of the boutiques. I love the cut of it in the front with the cool cut out at the bottom and the long, thin lapels. What's weird is this is a size six and I fit into it, when I usually wear a size two or four for Marc by Marc Jacobs. I also like the subtle color changes in the weave of it.
My friend, Jackie, has been getting after me about eating healthier, since I've met her. Boy, would she be proud seeing me buy all of this, when I went to Albertson's after my trip to Corona Del Mar. I bought some yogurt to try in my smoothies that I've been having for breakfast and instead of getting my favorite Lay's crisps, I bought pop chips. Also, bought some frozen fruit for my smoothies and some yogurt drinks. The mushroom ravioli and light pesto sauce will be good for dinner. And I just tossed the Walker's shortbread in the photo to show you that I've been loving it recently.
After Corona Del Mar and Albertson's, I went to the post office to pick up all my mail from the week that I was gone. Surprisingly, I had three letters from Jessy, Sophie, and Rebecca. I replied to all of their letters and made envelopes for them. Rebecca's is the large pastel blue envelope, while Sophie's is the lavender one with scalloped edges and Killers' lyrics on it. Jessy got the only envelope with zig zag edges. The only regret I have is that I forgot to scent them. I love mailing letters to people, so I hope all three of them got their letters. Overall a very productive day until I fell asleep due to jet lag..
Oh and I forgot to tell you, I went to go see Ted the day we left for Spain with my brother, Ted. It was so cute and funny. I thought the story was very creative because we all have that one friend from when we were little that we wish could be alive. I really recommend it to all of you unless you're the type that gets easily offended by jokes that make fun of everyone and everything, especially Susan Boyle, Taylor Lautner, and Justin Bieber.
Have you seen any good movies lately?

  2. I stared at that first picture of your bagel sandwich forever.. I love Bruegger's! my favorite bagel has whitefish on it, but I can't seem to find any around here.

    Recently I saw Moonrise Kingdom (: It was beautiful and I loved it.

  3. That bagel looks incredible! Fun pictures!

  4. Ice Pandora-You should definitely go see it! It's really cute, even though a lot of the humor is offensive. Hope that makes sense! :D

    Florence-Thank you! ^^

    sophie-cat-I want to see Moonrise Kingdom, since everyone says it's beautiful. I just hope it isn't prettier than Big Fish because that would kill my childhood, if it was. XD

    Caroline-It's so good! (:

  5. Great post! I love it! ^^ You have a nice blog, mind to follow each other? :)


  6. Ted really has quite some crude jokes doesn't it! It's adorable though!

  7. Nava-Thank you! ^^

    Teacup-It did have some crude jokes, but I'm kind of used to it from watching Family Guy. Haha, the cuteness of the actual bear and the concept was enough to make me forgive all the crude jokes though. (:


I love hearing what you have to say! Please leave a comment! ♥
