It’s almost Friday, woohoo! Today it’s all about the pastries. Croissants and macarons are two of my favorite things.

We went to La Boulange for breakfast after passing by a few times. The croissant sandwiches are good, but this violet macaron I had was a bit off. The flavor was good but the crispy shell of a typical macaron was gone and it was just soft.

As if I didn’t get enough croissant… I could not resist this amazing almond croissant. Sooo yummy and crunchy, filled with almond paste and covered with crunchy almonds and dusted with powdered sugar.

We then headed to Napa Valley for some sunshine (and more pastries)! We went to Bouchon bakery to grab some macarons. I love their macarons and they are GIANT. Not your typical tiny macaron.

Yes, I ate them all and went to enjoy the vineyards. =)
