Weekend Happenings

We finally made it to Popotla for lunch! Sitting on a plastic chair by the beach, drinking Tecates and eating seafood in Popotla had been on John’s bucket list for a while. Sienna still hates the car seat so some parts of the little excursion weren’t super fun but it was worth it! The food was delicious, there was no line at the border to cross back and if you follow me on IG you probably saw that Charlie met a pig… it was pretty hilarious.

I tried this delicious hummus trio and did some work for the next issue of the “La Vida Vegan” column. I can’t reveal the spot I picked yet but… it will be awesome! Also, for the March issue I will be one of the featured contributors so make sure you pick up a copy!

I got Sienna ready and all dolled up for a bridal shower that we had on Saturday. My cousin got her this cute dress from Du Pareil Au Meme for Christmas and I was waiting for a special day to put it on her. Unfortunately, the outing ended up being a total¬†#fail. Her naps have been funky and she’s starting to teeth so she had a Meltdown with a capital “M” that ended up with her napping at home while John watched her and me arriving at the shower almost two hours late. It’s true – having a baby is amazing but there are definitely days that totally go wrong. How cute did she look though? :)akeout from Tajima on Saturday night. Enough said.

Babies and beers at the Modern Times Flavordome. I know I mention this place pretty often. It’s really close to our house and my friend Andrew works the bar so it’s pretty much our go to. Also #allthebeer that they make is delicious. And their typography is pretty. And Sienna loves the lights in there. Sold.

We went to the San Diego Zoo!¬†Sienna loved it! Her favorite part had to be the aviary. At her age she couldn’t really “see” a lot of the bigger animals so she loved just being around all of the plants and sounds inside the aviary. She spent most of our visit with John holding her and they had a great time together. Sienna met her little cousin David visiting from New Jersey. His mom is my first cousin and it was great to catch up with her and her husband. John and I don’t have family living in San Diego so it’s nice being able to spend time with our families whenever they visit. I grew up surrounded by so many cousins! Luckily we have a lot of close friends in San Diego already so I am sure that Sienna will have a good amount of company around her as she grows up.
