The O.C.

You know, I've come to realize that the fact that one of my best friends lives in Orange County is not the only reason that I don't hate it. Sure, the parking lots are flooded with luxury SUVs, there are lots of chain stores, and let's just say they could use a little color up in the place. Buttttttt . . . there's also the Beachcomber, a perfect restaurant right on Newport Beach where you can sit and have a glass of white wine overlooking the waves. And there's Sprinkles cupcakes. And of course Amy and Dave's new baby doesn't hurt:


new wedges!

I'm kind of in love with my new black wedges. Plus, believe it or not, they're comfy! They were my sole O.C. purchase this time around . . . oh, and I must point out that Fashion Island in Newport Beach is teeming with overly tan women in rompers and tiny dogs. WHY BRING YOUR DOG SHOPPING? Seriously, people.

Sprinkles is a little bit of heaven

clockwise from top left: key lime, red velvet (my fave), lemon, peanut butter chocolate (Amy and Dave's favorite), vanilla, and milk chocolate. To the right? A pupcake for Amy & Dave's dog, Roxanne. :)

Auntie Claire and babysam!

Check out Sam rockin' his Juicy Couture duds I got him. I mean, he does live in Orange County after all. We can't have him being a baby pariah. :)

Cute baby, cupcakes and FABULOUS new black wedges - does it get better? If you would have thrown in a photo of the beach it might have killed me.
