day thirty-seven.

Day Thirty-seven 10/4/2009
Dress: Black Vintage Slip
Purchased From: Sazz Vintage
Year or Era Purchased: Fall 2009
Price: $5
Accessories: new black boots
Hair and Makeup: Eyes are all cleared up so lots of eye makeup, curled hair. I melted an old curling iron today.  Oops!
Comments/Compliments/Complaints: I have only seen Michael today he said "ooooh" I also got beeped at by a motorcycle person.

Last night we had an amazing dinner at La Zucca Magica.  The menus is fixed and changes daily depending on what is fresh that day.  It's also 100% vegetarian, and so good!

We were served:
1. Potato and onion soup with parmesan
2. Poached? artichoke with an Italian inspired Spanikopita (made with mozzarella, a spinach pesto, and more of a pie crust shell)
3. Pumpkin Parmesan (like an unbreaded eggplant parm with pumpkin instead of eggplant)
4. Lasagna made with homemade noodles, pieces of pumpkin, and French olives
5. Cinnamon flecked vanilla ice cream served with an apple/raisin pie slice
We also shared both a bottle of red wine and mineral water.  My god the amount of cheese and butter that entered our systems is amazing.  It was a lovely, romantic meal that left us dead for the night, watching an episode of Law & Order in French in our awesome apartment.  Our view is absolutely amazing.

Today was our super lazy day since it was the first day we didn't have a check-out time. We slept until noon and lazed about for hours.  I made us a brunch of omelettes with manchego, comte and gouda cheeses, mushrooms for me, onions and peppers for Michael.  We had toasted baguettes and a side of home fries.  We ate on our balcony and seriously just did nothing all day, fantastic.  We're now on our internet access mission, which required an insane walk because we tried to go to the grocery store first and it is way up a hill.  It was closed.  Oh well, we found the equivalent to a Philly bodega and got take out beers and water.  Michael got the Desperados, a weird tequila beer.  We think it will be gross but he wanted to try it.  Now we're going to do some searching for our Friday and Saturday destination.  I think we're going to try to stay in Monaco for our last two nights and drive into Italy for one meal so we can say we ate pasta in Italy.

Today's "dress" is really a slip and I had intended to wear it under a burgundy lace dress that I brought but I figured I'd be lounging for most of the day so I'd go with comfort, yup I find slips super comfy.  When we headed out I threw on a cardigan to play it down a bit.  I didn't do it on purpose but I didn't put any jewelry on today, again maybe for comfort reasons.  I curled my hair a lot today and finally wore it down.  We are having a really lovely time and are really loving Le Panaromic, our amazing apartment building.

Random Nice, France fact: The most popular dog is the Jack Russel Terrier, I've seen at least twenty of them, very few other breeds.  You can also take your dogs everywhere, including grocery stores. Crazy. I have not seen a cat yet, probably a good thing because that would mean it was a stray.  Also no squirrels, I don't think they're huge fans of palm trees.

Check out our view! Night and day :)

Yep, you are wearing a slip.
Sounds like you had a nice evening. Dinner is interesting. Would like to try the pumpkin lasagna sometime. Hope the rest of your trip is everything you expect it to be.
Miss you two.

Lovely dress/slip. But isn't the love seat a little much to lug around with you? It puts the excess in accessory.
