If you watch my Instagram stories and follow me on snapchat- wow so sorry for the complete overload of Ella all over there- but I’m actually not that sorry because I had the best weekend!
My cousin Ella is the sweetest munchkin ever and the second my family brought her home from China it was love at first sight. It has been so hard being away from her and my Chicago family being in LA but then again I’m so happy to be back with my LA family- see my dilemma?!
Anyways- this weekend was FULL of excitement. We went up and down and all over the park, had delish Chinese food in China Town in LA, and went to DISNEYLAND! It made my heart melt watching Ella see her biggest idols give her hugs- I mean when she met Cinderella that kid just froze in shock. Its different being older and watching the little ones go there- can’t wait to have one of my own in the future and be that mamma who fills up her iPhone storage from princess photos.
The first night they came in we went to our favorite Mexican restaurant and showed them how California does tacos. I ate lots of fresh flour tortillas, black beans, basically the whole order of guac, pico, rice, and almost all of a grilled fish taco but by the time I got to the taco I had been eating for a while and I was done. I also sipped on a marg- my place makes a “skinny” version with like half the sugar and it still tastes delish!
The next night in China Town was this spread- the table was huge so I had to take a sub par photo. Ella and I carb loaded for disneyland with some soft Chow Mein and we went HAM on shumai on the bottom left there! My dad ordered a peking duck!
Heres the proof.
Another sub par photo- Disneyland Gumbo- the taste was not sub par! I shared lots of bread and the vegetarian gumbo with Jocelyn and Jason had the Creamy chowder.
The rest of the eats were on my Instagram stories that I forgot to snap. They included weekend ice-cream and lots of pumpkin chocolate chip muffins- I need a break from those man.
Heres us on dumbo- happy Monday!
What did you eat this weekend?!
