The day began carrying on a Taylor-Klaus tradition of Chocolate Breakfast for Valentine’s Day or, as Bex has coined it, Single’s Awareness Day. Bex and Brooke enjoyed choc chip GF pancakes, along with scrambled eggs, fresh veggies and fruit.
Bex needed Mama Jett to get to Acting class and a Valentine’s party, so we rented a car and ventured to Sony Studios to be in the audience of Jeopardy with Alex Trebek. Got to the studio (after driving around to find the correct parking lot — at least the people are nice even if the directions are challenging!)
Brooke won a raffle (2 people out of the whole audience won) and left with a Jeopardy bag and special Wii version of Jeopardy! Pretty fun.
We tried to go to the Museum of Tolerance, but they wouldn’t wait and closed it while we were in the lobby. So much for tolerance for tardiness.
On the way home, a fun peek at Rodeo drive homes and then window shopping in Beverly Hills. We met the famous chocolatier from NY Diane Kron. She was so sweet (okay, bitter-sweet), giving Brooke too many sample tastes of her incredible chocolates (note: Elaine is jealous! Kron Chocolates got me through my thesis!)
My taste of the tequila truffle was unbelievable!
Made it back to Oakwood by 7:30pm… Bex still at class. She went punk today, can’t wait to hear how it went. Brooke & I eagerly baking some GF brownies now… so she will come home to the aroma of yum! Another great day in paradise!
