Last weekend I drove up to Laguna Hills (about an hour North) to celebrate my friend Cassidy’s 21st birthday. I wanted to share a few pictures from the weekend.
As soon as I arrived on Friday, we went to a trendy Irish pub where Cassidy had her ID inspected for the very first time. We had some delicious foods and desserts – such as Guinness flavored ice cream and orange bread pudding. The backyard of Cassidy’s house has an in ground jacuzzi overlooking a beautiful green canyon, which we enjoyed before going to sleep.
The next day was Disneyland. The weather was perfect, and for a Saturday the crowds were mild. Here are a few pictures.
The amazing weekend wasn’t over after Disneyland; it continued on to the next morning with brunch at the Ritz Carlton in Laguna Niguel. After glasses of fresh-squeezed orange juice and sparkling cider, we were first presented with an amuse-bouche. I was informed (having not been to nice enough restaurants to know!) that this was an appetizer the chef chooses to make for the day in very nice restaurants. In this case it was a delicious small parfait.
We had a beautiful view of the ocean during this dining experience.
We could choose a first course, main course, and a dessert course. My dessert was a tres-leche coconut cake.
Everyone went on a boat ride from Dana Harbor after brunch, but since I had a Midterm the next day and another one right after, I decided my entire weekend of not studying needed to end.
While waiting for our cars to be returned at the valet stand, I looked around at the other people arriving and leaving. I decided it would be more productive for me financially to spend future weekends at the Ritz meeting a man than to study and get good grades.
