I've been so busy, it has already been a week since our getaway to Orange County. I am taking a cooking break, so here are some highlights of last weekend.
Jan, Les and I arrived at South Coast Plaza (the fabulous mall) on Friday at 11:30. After our favorite lunch of prime rib sandwiches at Lawry's Carvery, Les proceeded to the hotel, and Jan and I SHOPPED until 5. I completed my shopping for Brad and picked up another dozen gifts or so.
The mall has lots of upscale stores and is huge! It is 2.8 million square feet (approx. a square mile) of shopping heaven! The Holiday decorations were spectacular, and every inch of ceiling trim was done in huge garlands with millions of giant green and magenta balls with amaryllis tucked in. There was a Santa's village, and train sets going through mountains of "snow".
Brad arrived at 7PM to find me happily lounging in front of the hotel tree in the bar with a glass of wine (and a diet Pepsi) and my book until dinner.
