Yup, still celebrating my birthday. Two of my best high school girlfriends, Katie and Brie, took me out to dinner over the weekend to celebrate! I requested Bottega Louie in Downtown LA, because I've been craving their sweet and airy macarons! Unfortunately, the wait for dinner was over 2 hours and they don't take reservations! Luckily, there was no wait for dessert (which is the best part anyway), so we picked up a colorful assortment of French Macarons at the patisserie counter and went on our way. I bought the 13 pack, so I'll be celebrating for a while longer.
