Have you heard about Le Macaron Boca Raton? I’m not going to lie. I am a bit obsessed when it comes to macarons. I remember when I was 9 months pregnant with #dailybocaavery and I waddled all the way to the Upper East Side in Manhattan (from Hell’s Kitchen) to visit the first U.S.-based Laduréeshop (the macarons are actually flown in from Paris each day). Big mistake. I have been spending my hard earned dollars on those teeny, colorful, delectable pastries ever since!
I read that a Ladurée “house” opened recently in Miami (the second U.S. location since New York), but I thought because of the distance, it would be best saved for a special occasion. I don’t drive to Miami for just anything mamas.
And the wait was worth it. Le Macaron Boca Raton definitely knows how to make its namesake and then some. I am normally a huge fan of the standard Vanilla macaron (Ladurée wins that bakery battle), but the Gingerbread flavor was unique and pretty darn delicious. Pair that with one of their handcrafted chocolates and you are in for a TREAT.
Mind you, a box of 6 costs $13.80 + tax, so it’s probably not going to turn into your daily family dessert, but for special occasions, parties or a beautiful Friday night walking the Mizner Park, I highly recommend.
#dailybabyavery had a great first ever Disney experience. #modernbocadad had the honor or escorting our own princess to BB&T Center and reported back that she was very much engaged…until ‘hangry’ lunchtime hit and then it was time to bolt. Sorry Belle.
The only incident to report was a 3 year-old girl falling backwards through the “hole” of her folding chair near #ModernBocaDad’sseat. He said it looked painful. She cried and Mickey didn’t help apparently. Sorry little girl.
Overall, the show was fun and featured all of the favorite Disney characters. It is a little long for short attention spans, but overall enjoyable, even if you leave early.
We’ll keep you posted when the next show comes to South Florida!

I love this group of fun, fit-oriented mommies! I attended morning sessions at Town Center at Boca Raton(yep, we work out in the mall) & they were fun…while appropriately challenging. And there’s no risk to try it out- your first class is FREE!
