we picked up cupcakes (clarrisa got strawberry and i tried the honey bunny) and cannolis from nadia cakes (of course!) before heading up north. it was our first time trying cannolis, and i liked them a lot! the filling was light and fluffy, and the shell crispy and sweet.
the next day, clarrisa's brother made us breakfast and gave us a tour of the campus. it's a really nice school, much larger than the one i went to.

then we had lunch at the splash cafe (they had the clam chowder, and i had a sun-shaped pizza). the splash cafe has fresh breads and baked goods! so delicious.
we also drove through the madonna inn just to get a peek. clarrisa and emmanuel were excited to see it because it was featured on 'the girls next door', haha.
when we got back to SLO, we saw "iron man 2" and "how to train your dragon" at the sunset drive-in. so cool! $6 for a double feature. it was my first time at a drive-in, and i though it was really fun, not to mention almost half the price of a matinee showing in santa clarita (and that's just for one movie!). definitely a great experience.
clarrisa and i just got back home today. overall, it was a really fun trip and we enjoyed hanging out with her younger brother (plus, he cooked breakfast and took care of us, so that was really sweet). mini vacations are awesome. i'm really tired though and still need to finish packing for europe (we leave super early monday morning).
also, i want to thank namine for this book blogger neighbor award! :)
how has everyone been? hope your weekend has been amazing so far!
