A day in La Jolla

Last month Sprinkles opened a new location in San Diego, so Jon and I ventured to La Jolla yesterday.

After waiting in line for 50 minutes, we finally got our hands on my favorite cupcake, Red Hot Velvet! I've been craving their Red Hot Velvet for a couple of months, but since it's only available for about a week during Valentines, we made sure to be there the day they released it. As if Red Velvet wasn't the best cake ever created, they add a bit of cinnamon to the cream cheese frosting to really put it over the edge.

After we meandered over to the theater across the street to see The Fighter.

Not only do "Based on a True Story" movies catch my eye, but Christian Bale is one of my all-time favorite actors. He isn't a typecast character, but truly versatile and does a superb job of any role he delivers. He does an amazing job of playing a cocaine addicted brother/trainer to his brother Micky Ward (Mark Wahlberg), before Micky's pro boxing career took off in the mid-80s.

Since World Market is in the same complex as the theater, and Jon had never step foot inside of one, I had to take up the opportunity. Any time I visit World Market don't expect me out of there within an hour and this time wasn't any different. Places like this make me want to buy house and decorate for days.

Whenever I drive to La Jolla, I make it a point to stop at an old "secret spot". There is little place just along the beach where seals naturally come ashore. It's a fantastic place to relax. Unfortunately over the years, more and more people have been finding out and visiting, making it a real touristy spot. But just look at how cute they are!


  1. so jealous!! I want to try one of their cupcakes. I loved the fighter. They did such amazing jobs, the stuff they show at the end of the real guys shows you how spot on they were in their roles. amazing movie!!

  2. I am obsessed with Sprinkles cupcakes. I used to eat them in Scottsdale all the time and when I moved to Chicago I was bummed to see they hadn't opened one here yet. Low and behold they opened over the summer but I'm not patient enough to wait in the ridiculous lines to get a cupcake so I'll have to wait till the novelty wears off.

  3. I love sprinkles! Oh my gosh red velvet is my absolute favorite! I loved the movie the fighter! I agree Christian Bale was so amazing. And LOVE your secret spot it's seems so amazing to go to! jealous!!! ♥♥♥

  4. Ooh! Seal beack, love it so much there. La Jolla reminds me of a big outdoor shopping mall though.

  5. ainsley! i just got your postcard valentine and it totally made my day ♥ maybe even my weekend! hehe. thank you so so so much it means a lot!!

  6. world market is totally a weakness for me, i love picking out house stuff there!
