Lakeshore Learning events

As a mom, I often look for events for baby. Too bad she's not a little older to do crafts.

Every Saturday, Lakeshore Learning has free crafts for kids from 11am to 3pm.

I have had Dogzilla twice and love it each time. Their yakisoba dog comes with yakisoba noodles on top of a spicy sausage. Yum! It's even baby friendly. Baby likes the noodles for din.

This gourmet food truck can be seen in OC. Sometimes even at Asian Garden Mall in Westminster on Tuesdays.

Rosie Posie Boutique

Image
My girlfriend came over recently for a playdate with her baby. Her baby wore the cutest amber necklace. My friend told me it helps for teething.

I got one for my baby and she's been wearing it non-stop (minus bath time). So far, she hasn't been fussy with it on. I don't know it it's the necklace but I think it is.




You can find a necklace at Rosie Posie boutique in Anaheim. The store also carries many organic baby goods.

The Great Park in Irvine is a great place to hang out with lil kiddies and out of towners.

The Scoop

Image
I have been meaning to try The Scoop forever after reading about it on mom blogs and Yelp. I finally did last Wednesday with baby, my girlfriend and her son. Too bad it was overcast and windy, but ice cream sandwiches make everything all better. They serve Thrifty ice cream and make homemade cookies.

I chose chocolate malted crunch and s'mores and chocolate chip cookies. My friend got chocolate chip cookies with vanilla ice cream and mint chocolate chip ice cream cone for her son. Yum yum!

This place is definitely worth a trip to Downtown HB.

Casey's Cupcakes

Image
I have been meaning to try Casey's since I heard Shes the cupcake Wars winner. I love Laguna Beach too so the location was appealing.

Friday, baby and I ventured to the beach since the sun came out. I got raspberry and lemon to go.

Ohmigoodness! They were moist and airy. I loved the cupcakes. Looks like sprinkles and Frosted has some competition.

Cupcake lovers should definitely check this place out. The packaging is way cute too!

My latest obsession are the tacos at Taqueria Mexico. It's in Westminster off Westminster Blvd and Springdale.

Today, I got some take out. Mmm, check out this piece of heaven.

Sensitive Sweets

I finally tried Sensitive Sweets after driving by it on Brookhurst. This bakery is dairy free, nuts free, and gluten free.

The owner was super nice and told me about all the cupcakes and muffins. I decided on lemon and chocolate marshmallow. Both cupcakes were moist and flavorful. I'll definitely return.

So far, I tried the red velvet and blueberry. Yum! Good frosting too. It's definitely a repeat truck To check out.
