We’re halfway through our short visit in SoCal.Trying to cram LA, OC and SD in 4 days.
On Day 1, I had my first taste of El Pollo Loco and In-N-Out in 7 months. Oh. Em. GEE. It never tasted so good!
On Day 2, we met up with a coupke of friends and headed to my sister-in-law’s house. Food gorged on: Cheese danish, caffe latter, and parfait at Panera; Macadamia Nut pancakes at Aloha Food Factory; sausage and pepperoni pizza from Fresh Brothers, and lasagna and pasta from Buca di Beppo (this was at my sister-in-law’s house for my nephew’s belated birthday party).
My mother-in-law and sister-in-law have given us piles of baby clothes and homemade blankets. It’s been so fantastic. I have just enjoyed spending time with my in-laws. They still have their Christmas decorations up, so it still feels like the holidays.
Even though it doesn’t really feel like time has passed, I know it has. My neice and nephew have seemingly grown a foot taller. Gosh, the next time I see them, I’m sure my niece will be close to my height. ” src=”http://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/72×72/1f622.png” scale=”0″>
Today we’re going to have breakfast with my husband’s old co-co-workers. It will be great to see them and reveal our big news.
Afterwards, it’ll be time to see the first-time grandparents-to-be. I wonder who’ll be more excited – me or them? ” src=”http://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/72×72/1f606.png” scale=”0″>
