So Thursdays I usually work half day and then use the rest of the day to run errands like grocery shopping. Turns out I had the day off and it turned out to be a really nice day. The weather was beautiful (which is enough to put anyone in a great mood). I woke up late, took pictures of the dog sun bathing and people watching. Cleaned the whole apartments, and then prepared dinner for company we were having that evening.

While cleaning the apartment I had a nice lunch break at Panera. I brought my Real Simple magazine with me and found this great ravioli recipe. All it was was cheese raviolis. While they cook, in a separate skillet you saute shallots, garlic, halved grape tomatoes, 1 cup of dry white wine, and 2 to 3 table spoons of butter. Once the sauce and raviolis are done just transfer the raviolis to the skillet to the sauce and combine. I like to top it off with parsley and freshly grated Parmesan cheese. It was amazing. I made garlic bread and a salad too and viola! Dinner is served.

Today I stopped by the Sprinkles cupcake store in Newport Beach and picked up some cupcakes for Brad and I as well as a little puppy cupcake for the dog. I know it’s kind of ridiculous to get one for the dog, but I couldn’t help myself.

Hope you all are enjoying your Friday!
