A Sweet Night!

A Sweet Night!

Well last night was a fun night full of sweets! I went out with Jenn, Chris’s sister, and his mom Sandra. We went to the Anaheim Packing District and we honestly did not know where to start! This was the first time I have ever been to have dessert. I was really excited! So let’s start with a little history about the Anaheim Packing District. This beautiful building was built in 1919 and originally named the Anaheim Citrus Packing House. Back then the Packing House was used for washing, grading, packing, and shipping out citrus. Since it has been restored, its now used as a place to eat, hang out, and even enjoy music. It was beautifully restored to be what it is today and is always busy. It is full of different foods and desserts so there are so many different places to eat! I could spend hours here! When we arrived we decided to valet because it was only three dollars and way quicker than trying to find parking. This place is always very busy so I would rather spend the three dollars. The valet staff was awesome and so very nice!

First we did a lap. The only way to tell what we want is to look at all of our options right? Let me tell you a secret, there are a lot and I mean A LOT of options. After we did our lap, we didn’t even know where to begin! We had to make a game plan. Then we decided to start off with Mini Monster. I love boba and strawberry lemonade and this place put them together! How awesome is that? I ended up getting my drink in the cutest little glass lightbulb cup and so did Jenn! The best part about the cups is that they are reusable so we can take it back and they will fill it! I ordered the Strawberry Lemonade with boba and Jenn ordered the Sunset Strawberry Lemonade with the Cotton Candy cloud. We loved it! Next time, I will definitely be ordering the one Jenn got. It has a little something extra in it to give it more flavor. That is what you are seeing on the right picture below. Its like a blueish purple. We both really enjoyed our drinks. I am excited to go and try something else new!

    

After we got our drinks we went to I Am, which is a shaved snow and smoothie place. We did not go there for either of those things. We saw people with smoke coming out of their mouths and our eyes lit up! Whatever it was, we had to try it. Turns out they were Snow Balls, which are rice balls infused with liquid nitrogen! So when you chew it, out comes smoke! It was definitely a cool experience. I definitely enjoyed it. I know we all had fun with it. The smoke kept coming out of my nose which also killed Sandra. She thought it was so funny!

        

Next we headed downstairs to Vitaly which had gelato! They had the cutest thing ever where you can get a flight of gelato. A FLIGHT!! How cute is that? You choose 5 different flavors and they come in the cutest little cones and mini spoons. We got Tiramisu, Oreo, Salted Caramel, Chocolate, and Vanilla. I did not have the Salted Caramel because I am not a fan of caramel flavored things. The only time you will ever see me have anything to do with caramel is  when I am dipping apples into it. The chocolate was pretty good, but very rich. It’s actually dark chocolate. The Vanilla and Oreo tasted very similar, but they were still good! I thought it was delicious gelato and adorable presentation.

Last, but certainly not least, we went back upstairs to Pandor Bakery. We couldn’t have a night of sweets without macaroons! We ended up getting one for each of us. We got 2 Rosé and a Coffee for Sandra. There were no complaints from us! I definitely want to go back and try so much more from here. They had a ton of yummy looking pastries, macaroons, and so much more!

   

It was overall a fun night. I loved that we got little items and were able to share. That way it wasn’t as expensive and we got to try way more! I will definitely head back to try more food from this place. If you are visiting Orange County I definitely recommend this place. Not only does it have so many options to try, but it has a little bit of history to go along with it. It fun for the whole family and I guarantee there is something here for everyone! If you haven’t already please check out my Facebook and my Instagram for more of what I am doing. I hope you have enjoyed this post and will try out the Anaheim Packing District for yourself!

Everyone meet Jenn! She is the best and I know you’ll be seeing more of her in my posts. Also, I want to say Congratulations on graduating from high school! I am so proud of you and can’t wait to try out more things with you!

 

Breakfast at Disneyland!

Breakfast at Disneyland!

So this was my first time having breakfast at Disneyland and I have to say, it was a pretty cool experience. We went to celebrate my mother’s birthday. A little background, my mother died when I was 10 of cancer. Even with the few years I got to spend with her, shes incredibly special to me and we were incredibly close. On this day, she would have been 60 years old! Every year, on significant days that have to do with my mother, I do something I know she would have liked to do. My mother, before I was born, worked for Disney. I grew up going to Disneyland all the time! So today we decided to go to Carnation Cafe. Not exactly Goofy’s Kitchen, but this was in our price range. I was so happy to be able to go with my boyfriend Chris, my brother’s girlfriend Jessy, and my niece Sophia. The experience was awesome. Our waiter was helpful and even the older gentleman cleaning tables was magical! We had awesome conversation with him, but I wish I recalled his name. I had the All American Breakfast and boy was it good! Jessy had the Mickey shaped waffle, and Chris had the Apple Pancakes, which sure did fill him up! Sophia is a pretty picky eater so she had some eggs. I was so excited to go to Disneyland, especially with my niece, now old enough to go on rides. So we decided to stay and go on a couple. We went on Snow White’s Scary Adventure and Pinocchio’s Daring Journey. Sophia definitely hated both. I guess I didn’t realize how scary they were! After those two rides, we all stared to get tired. The heat didn’t help either. We decided to call it a day. When we all got home, all we wanted to do was take a nap. Below are just a couple photos from our morning at Disneyland! I promise I will get better at taking photos and giving more details. This is all very new to me and I am trying to form new habits. Thank you for reading. See you soon!
