MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: JANUARY 16–22, 2017!
A visit to the ostrich farm and wineries up in Solvang, a rainy week in Los Angeles, visiting out of state cousins and a whirlwind food tour of LA eats…plus admitting to myself that I have a big crush on Stella Gibson…anyone?

Enjoy!

Special shoutout and thank you to Mindy!!!! Mindy saw that in my ADIML at Disneyland that Zach was looking for a Tower of Terror pin (since it’s now gone from the park) and she got one for him from Disney World during her visit. SO KIND! Thank you again.

It reminded me of beef rendang weirdly enough, I’ve only had beef rendang twice so I’m not expert in Malaysian food…but I’ve been craving good Malaysian food ever since I had it in London. This came close in flavor!!! (From what I could remember)
