A smiling Felicity Huffman seemed not to have a care in the world when she was spotted with her husband, youngest daughter and the family dog during an outing in Los Angeles on Saturday afternoon.

Huffman was seen grinning as she and her family unloaded furniture at an apartment building after returning from Boston for her sentencing in the college admissions scandal on Friday.

The disgraced Desperate Housewives star wore a straw hat and shades for the outing - the first time she has been seen in public since she was sentenced to 14 days in prison. She paired black skinny jeans with a grey long-sleeved shirt and a pair of Adidas sneakers.

It's not clear what she was doing with husband William H. Macy and youngest daughter Georgia Grace Macy, 17, but Huffman was holding a box which had 'Sophia apartment' scrawled on the side.

This suggests they were moving their eldest daughter Sophia Grace Macy, 19, into her own home in the city or dropping off boxes with her.

Georgia looked casual in an 90s-inspired look - wearing acid-wash jeans, floral top and Sketchers sneakers. She accessorized with a small black backpack.

Mom-of-two Huffman was seen removing a folding side table from the trunk of a silver car parked outside, while her husband - clad in a white shirt, black pants and a cap - held onto their dog's leash and a bag of Whole Foods peanuts. Sophia was nowhere to be seen. 

It looked like any other family outing, but just 24 hours earlier, the actor was sentenced to two weeks in a federal prison.

She also issued a public apology on Friday for paying $15,000 to inflate her daughter's SAT scores.

'I accept the court’s decision today without reservation,' she wrote in her statement. 'I have always been prepared to accept whatever punishment Judge [Indira] Talwani [of the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts] imposed.

FELICITY HUFFMAN STATEMENT

I accept the court’s decision today without reservation. I have always been prepared to accept whatever punishment Judge Talwani imposed. 

I broke the law. I have admitted that and I pleaded guilty to this crime. There are no excuses or justifications for my actions. Period. 

I would like to apologize again to my daughter, my husband, my family and the educational community for my actions. And I especially want to apologize to the students who work hard every day to get into college, and to their parents who make tremendous sacrifices supporting their children. 

I have learned a lot over the last six months about my flaws as a person. My goal now is to serve the sentence that the court has given me. 

I look forward to doing my community service hours and making a positive impact on my community. I also plan to continue making contributions wherever I can well after those service hours are completed. I can promise you that in the months and years to come that I will try and live a more honest life, serve as a better role model for my daughters and family and continue to contribute my time and energies wherever I am needed. 

My hope now is that my family, my friends and my community will forgive me for my actions.

Meanwhile, as Huffman prepares to serve her prison sentence, fellow actor Lori Loughlin, who along with husband Mossimo Giannulli has also been charged in the college bribery scandal, is reported to be closely following the latest legal developments in the case.

Unlike Huffman and several other defendants who have made plea agreements with federal prosecutors, Loughlin and Giannulli pleaded not guilty.  

While Huffman received two weeks in prison for paying $15,000 to inflate her daughter's SAT scores, Loughlin is alleged to have paid $500,000 to fraudulently have her daughters admitted to the University of Southern California by claiming membership on the crew team. 

If convicted, Loughlin faces a maximum of 40 years in prison, though legal observers doubt that a judge would impose such a harsh sentence. 

In addition to her 14-day prison sentence, Huffman was also sentenced to a year of probation for paying a bribe in exchange for a proctor falsifying her daughter's standardized aptitude test to get the teen a higher score.  

The actress, 56, addressed the court just moments before she learned her
