Date Night @ Local Tap House

DATE NIGHT!!!  WHAT WHAT!!!  After the last six years living very far from family, I have to say this was everything we could have asked for.  Truthfully, it was not planned.  My husband and I are both taking classes online.  He is in a bachelor’s degree program for electronic engineering-nanotechnology and I am finishing up pre-requisites […]

A Foodie Family’s SoCal Adventure: Buccaneer’s Cafe & Ohana Cupcakes

Adrian and I ventured out to the Stroller Warriors workout over near the Strand at Buccaneers Park.

A Foodie Family’s SoCal Adventure: The Yellow Deli & Danny’s Donuts

A Foodie Family’s SoCal Adventure: That Pizza Place & Yum Yum Donuts

That Pizza Place Aiden’s choice for dinner…That Pizza Place. He was dying for pizza so we figured a place with the size “Really Big One” was perfect for us 😂. Needless to say, the slices were the size of a kids arm up to his elbow. We enjoyed their pizza but the kids said that […]

What’s really been going on…

I have not said anything because I did not want to believe certain things were really happening. Over the course of the last couple months, I have been experiencing little strange things.  I have hypothyroidism which I am on medication for and generally run low on iron but correct it with what we eat.  What […]
