All Days Should Be This Awesome

May 5, 2012

My sister and I have been wanting to try Bottega Louie for a while so today we drove down for brunch.

Portobello fries! A definite must if you go.


Lobster hash.

Eggs, potatoes, and veggies.


We ordered a chocolate souffle for dessert and when it came to the table the server put on a show. He assaulted it with a spoon then lifted the cream holder above our heads. He poured the cream into the newly-made hole with expert precision and BAM! The souffle was ready to be devoured. Fancy.


On our way out I grabbed a pack of five macarons. The strawberry and salted caramel were the only ones that made an impression.


We stopped at Half and Half, a tea house that is known for their ridiculous wait. They add pudding to your drink  if you want but it’s more like gelatin. I like it but know it weirds some people out. I usually get the ice milk with caramel, honey boba, and pudding.


When we got home I sewed up a tank. I cut the hem off in the photo but it’s asymmetrical…my favorite!


After I finished the shirt  I took new apron photos. An announcement was never made on the blog but the French Maid Aprons are listed. There’s the classic black and white, black and white dot with colors, and soon there will be solid black with colors. Some are made to order (one week turnaround time) but we at Boojiboo headquarters are doing our best to make sure that changes.


Here’s Hugo in all his cuteness.


And just in case you think Lily’s being neglected, no. She isn’t. If anything she’s getting MORE attention to make up for the change.


 A long  (but awesome) day.

Tomorrow I’ll be home knitting my heart out. Hope you have a lovely weekend!

      Indeed! But I like staying busy. Too much idle time=bad.

    Squishy cuteness! Can we have a puppy play date one of these days? I swear I won’t spend the entire time snuggling your dogs…. 🙂 Glad you loved Bottega Louie! It’s definitely worth the trip.

      It was. You should totally go when you come down in June!

        Ohh, how tempting. Thing is, we won’t have wheels…We’re first staying in Long Beach (although will be working so the only food we’ll be enjoying will be stall food) and then Santa Monica.

        Still, it looks awesome, so I have already noted it down just in case. Less than 3 weeks to go, hell yeah!

        There are plenty of places to eat in LB, it’s a lot hipper/trendier. Not sure where in LB you’ll be but Royal Cup Cafe is a favorite of mine! You’ll have tons of fun!!!
