Summer is San Diego is a lot of fun! Besides having the beach, the pool, the wonderful hikes in the canyons and natural parks, having THE BEST FRIENDS and spending time with them is really THE treat. Today, after doing some art projects with Rosie, water polo girlfriend and long time BFF, I surprised the girls with a visit to Reena’s Threading Center to get their very first Henna Tattoos.
Reena was very welcoming and warm, sharing with the girls her knowledge of Henna history. She’s using only natural henna ingredients directly imported from India and likes to use her imagination to created the patterns rather than follow the traditional patterns.
Thank you Reena for all making the girls’ visit a day they will always remember! Now, they won’t want to do water polo in fear of washing their tattoos away.
January 18, the date when Jeffery and I got married. Wow, 17 years ago, 2 kids later and yes, a few wrinkles here and there (more here). We like to try new things and new restaurants and so we took the kids to a new place, Sirena Cociana Latina. We actually answered a Facebook invitation from Troy Johnson, San Diego Magazine’s Food Critic to come and taste his cooking! This guy can cook! It’s always fun to follow him and his reviews on food throughout San Diego, but normally those that critic …won’t cook! Well, he did, and I am happy I tried ceviche for the first time ever. I loved the fresh taste, the full palate spices, and loved the atmosphere of the place as well. I could not have been there without taking a few photos, so enjoy and hopefully the images make you hungry enough so you can go and try it for yourself.
HAPPY AND FUN FAMILY WITH REALLY INTERESTING NICKNAMES! (I still believe Dylan, no matter how “Super” Dylan he thinks he is, will get in trouble very soon for calling his son WORM! Yeah, that’s right! The little guy is so cute and so fun and soooooo cool for going on with the nickname…Mushie, is just too cute and gentle, such a little lady! I loved playing with them at the beach. Those are the photos the parents chose and I might just end up adding more. Enjoy!
