friends & family

Whenever I am going home to visit I make sure I see my girlfriends! We all went to breakfast at this amazing breakfast place called Snooze. I would highly recommend their french toast, um, yum. Also make sure you ask for their pancake special of the day. It is different every time and apparently they can get pretty creative. My friend talks about the Oreo Peanut Butter Pancake like it was a gift from the heavens, and oh how I wish it hadn't been a specialty pancake so I could have tried it when I had gone!

Speaking of other yummy places to try next time you in SoCal, me and my friend Katy on another night during my stay went out to dinner at a place called Stacked. It is a really unique set up where you create the dish from an iPad that is at your table. They have such a variety, and it was scrumptious. Some of the best macaroni and cheese I have ever had, and you all know what a statement that is coming from me.


Another must see when I am in town, especially at Christmas, is to see the San Diego Temple and the Christmas lights! As a family we were able to attend the Temple all together, as well as see all the festive decorations. Both my parents work in the temple, and spend a lot of time there weekly. It was nice to spend time there and see more into what they do on a weekly basis! I wish I could just show you what the lights look like. In the night it is hard to capture with the camera. But it really is gorgeous. There is a free way to the right side of the temple, and they say that every December the accidents go up on that stretch of the freeway because people stare too long at the temple and all the gorgeous lights!

  2. Stacked is great! I have worked there for over a year and from the inside I can tell you they run a clean, tight ship and they really strive for high quality food and high quality taste! I know sometimes the experience varies on who takes care of you :/ but most of the time we get great reviews! I also just tried Snooze for the first time last week... their french toast is to die for! Anyway, nice to have you back in the neighborhood Alycia :)

  11. Yes! Ive heard of them from my sister and brother in law. They are big food critics and connoisseurs. My brother was telling me they probably make a lot of money just from all the extra things they offer you. So when you are ordering you're like, this looks good and this looks good too! I'll have it all!
