Rain + Pan Dulce
Regardless of the temperature, rainy days are always meant for eating a bit of pan dulce and sipping on coffee, tea, or hot chocolate (preferably Mexican hot chocolate!) After church we grabbed a taco at our favorite taqueria and also bought a few sweet treats: some crumbly sugar cookies and mini sweet breads. If you've never ventured into a Mexican bakery, also known as a panaderia, you should! Don't be intimidated. At most stores you simply grab a large tray and some tongs and go shelf to shelf picking out whatever you want. And don't be afraid to pile those treats high, because more than likely it will only cost between $5-$10. We bought 4 of the breads pictured above, and 6 cookies for $3!
I was on my feet all day and wore some gorgeous, yet impractical, patent leather plum wedges. I barely made it to my car after work! I went straight to the gym to do my short run and felt.every.step. I'm about to soak the tootsies for a bit and then indulge in some Gossip Girl before bed :)
I was recently given a copy of P90X by a friend. I'm a bit nervous, seeing as how when he handed it to me he told me he threw up after the first 30 minutes. What?! I'm going to give it go tonight, but if it's out of control I'm stopping--it's not worth losing my pan dulce over!
