Vive La France!



While waiting painstakingly for Gossip Girl/The bachelor/The City to start last night my adorable new french roommate came home from a day of walking around (walking! too cute) and shopping. (if he weren't 23 I'd have a crush)

He came home loaded with Nordstrom bags, Apple Store, Barney's,etc. (like I said, LOVE HIM) And then he comes in and is all...

"Kristeeen....I have some present pour you." And then he hands me a lotion/manicure kit from this cart in the Grove. SEACRET The cart that ATTACKS you with the lotion bottle every.single.time. you walk by it. So you have to like walk on the OTHER side of the outdoor shopping mall street. And even as you're darting away they're chasing you..."It's free sample. Who doesn't need lotion from minerals from the dead sea? Just try it!!!!!" And you think "who BUYS this stuff? Someone must or else they wouldn't still be here. "

Well, now you know. I mean how CUTE is that?

Having a 23 yr old french kid living with me is like having an entire new species in the house. Oh, and also? He came home with the most adorable blonde girl who is also French.

He's been here 4 days. Found The grove, Nordstrom and A cute girl.

Je suis tres lucky!

Oh and on other news, Denny's is giving away a free grand slam breakfast This morning. I get that that's exciting and all. HOWEVER, The line is down THE BLOCK and People are all "I have been in line since 5 AM!!"

Seriously! the grand slam is what? $2.99? $3.99? Shameful, people.

I gotta go give myself a mani now with my new Dead Sea minerals.

Au revoir!

I have book club at my house this week and we read a book that takes place in Paris - ask your roomie what I should serve (in the way of appitizers or treats)!!

How is it possible that your french friend is here four days and already found the best mall EVER and a cute little girly to boot? The luck of some people!!!

It was on the morning news dede! I love chocolate chip pancakes...but I am also Lazy. To me they go ahnd in hand....which is why it's perplexing that those people were willing to WAIT so long and so early!

Hours for a Grand Slam? Mais non!

Hours for an adorable 23 year old French Fry to call my own? Oh, oui. Oui. Sil vous plait?

That is weird! I haven't eaten at Denny's since I stopped going to clubs! The food is only tolerable after 2am and you've been drinking all night!
