Sleep overs

Remembering when I was in first grade seems like such a long time ago because it really was.  That's over 30 years ago. 

Here's some great sleep over activities recently noted.. Eating hotdogs, fruit, making s'mores, watching a movie in a sleeping bag.  

Wow!  S'mores anyone? 

Great way to spend the night

Make you wanna join the fun, doesn't it?

Awesome flashback weekend

I went with my lovely girlfriends to check out several 80s new wave cover bands.  There was Billy Idol band, The cure, the Smiths (Morrissey) and Depeche mode.  Here's a few pics,I know none look like the actual bands mentioned, but they're cover bands.  They sound far better than they look. 

Plus,I got toasty and has a blast while at the front row of the concert!!! Woohoo!!
Check out the pacman ice sculpture

Santa Ana really has changed

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: 

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.

Alejandra... American girl

So last year for Christmas I bought my daughter what she knows as her American Girl doll.   However, it's not AG, hers is a replica purchased at Target for only $15.   That's 1/10th of the price of an AG doll.   

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

My next purchase for Alejandra  is probably going to be a wardrobe closet.  Currently she has about 16 different outfits to wear along with accessories.  She even has real American girl dog called Honey.  

I really think this was the most used and greatest use of  $15 I spent on anything.

Halloween q&a special at the Egyptian theater

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. 

San Diego with the gals

I had an amazing time with my girlfriends in San Diego visiting, walking, shopping, eating and most of all just spending time with girls.
