Weekend Warriors: Donuts and Sunshine

Weekend Recap: October 25-26

This weekend my fiance was off to San Francisco to gather with his fellow Giants fans, so I took the time to soak in the quality time with my parents. We’ll be moving out in the next coming months and as great as that is, truth is I’ll miss the time spent with my parents. So Saturday my mom and I ventured to the valley, shopped and ate. The whole day was spent chatting and gossiping.

On Sunday, with my dad off we all ventured to Santa Monica.We went to Dunkin Donuts, which I’ve been trying to visit since it opened a little over a month ago. This Santa Monica location is one of the first DD’s on the west coast and I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. I can’t say if it compares to the DD’s back east, but I can tell you this much…coffee was on point, donuts were good and the line wasn’t too bad.


From there we drove down to the 3rd street promenade and my dad showed me where he worked when I was born (at a hotel near the beach), we walked around, went down to the pier and got to play tourists for the day.


Got a pretty pic of some colorful cacti (love!) near the promenade.


On the way back we scooped up some pupusas from El Molcajeta (best pupusas in L.A.!), drove back home and chilled until Frank came home. Felt good to have him back, I really missed him. With Monday already over, here’s hoping the rest of the week goes just as fast!
