When mom and dad come to visit…

After the Maui trip we didn’t have true vacation blues because the hubs parents were coming to visit!

They arrived the day after we got back and we had THE best time taking them around and you guys know with us that food is always involved 🙂

Here are some snaps from their stay:

Yes, Mendocino was our first stop after they arrived and yes we did love it!


Almond croissant from the farmer’s market at the Grove? Sure, why not?


More sweets for the sweet 🙂


Milk shot in a cookie glass-I have not been doing cookies and milk right!


This cronut from Dominic Ansel Bakery was WAY better than anything I was expecting. It was flaky and sweet!


I’m sure you already know how much we love Midici already from this post and this post and we can’t forget this post 🙂 so it was only natural we took our favorites to our favorite


Post carb-coma dessert


And nothing goes better with donuts than coffee…unless it’s another donut 🙂


If you are ever in LA check out Palms Thai for some well priced and delicious Thai food

Porto’s anyone?!



And I’m pretty sure we got enough pastries to feed a crowd



If you’re ever wanting some good chicken sammies or delicious tenders check out Birdies



We reallllyyyy had a great time with the parents and we were sad to see them go! Let me know what are your spots? Where do you guys take family or friends when they visit? Talk to me in the comments below!

        We went to Hollywood for Universal Studios and only had time for one restaurant in Cambodia Town but I really do want to visit again for more food!! I have heard there are cronuts around here somewhere but I had read the reviews for them and people said they weren’t so good. 😦

        Oh no!! There is a place here in LA called SK Donuts. They closed for remodeling, but we have been waiting for them to open back up. They have amazing glazed cronuts-simple, but so yummy! Check them out the next time you come!!
