I had a chance to visit the new Santa Ana East End Shop center. It's located an a renovated building that used to be full of little gift shops and had an indoor swap mall feel.
Well that look and feel certainly isn't there anymore. The place has ultimately changed and virtually unrecognizable from its old business model. It has many food vendors ranging from fresh Asian noodles, home made sausages, gourmet cookie ice cream sandwiches, pulled belly pork sandwiches, Asian/Mexican fushion burritos, fresh squeezed juices, Mexican Popsicles (paletas), Portola coffee, a beer/wine bar and a wine and cheese shop.
I was extremely impressed with the quality of the food displayed and also the location has a back patio with graffiti art filled with local artists work. Plus tables are huge butcher blocks and bars stools fill the place. This is a place to go alone or with others and enjoy a nice lunch or impromptu meal.
Here's a good article from the OC register with more info: http://www.ocregister.com/articles/food-650513-quinn-street.html
I'm providing a picture of the Portola coffee shop that smelled amazing, but I didn't have time to sample any since I was in a rush. They even roast, package and make their coffee drinks. It reminds me of Intelligencia coffee shop in Hollywood located next to ArcLight theater.
My pick of the day was a poke bowl from MAR. Which was $8 and includes fresh tuna, arborio rice, w/ garlic ginger sauce, topped with avocado, sesame seeds and two spicy sauces on the side.
I'm sure going to visit this new location soon.

She absolutely adores her doll. She has even cried if it's falling on the floor, if she's forgotten it at home, or if her doll simply doesn't sit the way she wants it to. It's completely adorable how much she adores the doll.
We visited the American girl store on Valentine's Day. I purchased an outfit for Alejandra and had a memorable lunch at their Cafe. Alejandra has the exact proportions of the AG doll so Zoe didn't even realize it's not an AG doll. Here some pics at the cafe with an AG doll she was given to carry with her during the visit.
The very next day she even slept with Alejandra wearing her new ballerina outfit.
Just the other day while she was gone and left her at home I was mischievous and posed Alejandra in different poses. Almost as if she missed my daughter it's so cute
I really think this was the most used and greatest use of $15 I spent on anything.

Thats the director and actress of the 1978 cult classic, Halloween. Yes Jamie Lee Curtis and John Carpenter.
It was amazing to see them together. Apparently it's been over 10 years since they've done a q&a and this is also the last.
It's one of my favorite movies and I feel so special to have been honored to see this.

I had to go to orthodontist to have rbberbsnds and wire replaced.
This is how's teeth look without them on, and how embarrassing, you can see the gap. My missing baby tooth is obvious without the fake one that's attached to the braces.
