modoo donuts | buena park

After Korean BBQ at Mr BBQ, we hit up a nearby shop called My D-Pins and Collectibles to check out some Funko Pops. This shop had TONS of Disney pins. I didn’t even know Disney pins was a THING. Shows you how much I know. After collectible browsing, I wanted to hit up a nearby donut shop before we headed home. Modoo Donuts held the promise of cute donuts and I couldn’t resist popping up for a few donuts. 

Modoo Donuts. …

April 15th, 2016Fullerton, Mary, Orange CountyMary 6 Comments

Recently Jake, T and I headed up to Orange County for a little excursion. Jake wanted to buy a Funko Pop collectible from someone in LA who met us halfway in OC and to convince me to go along, Jake suggested we hit up a place for Korean BBQ. He let me pick the spot (as usual) and I picked Mr BBQ. Mr BBQ is rated #27 on Yelp’s Top Places to Eat in the US for 2016 and the …

beijing wok and grill / fountain valley, ca

Jake suggested after we got the donuts that we could just call it a day and go home and NOT get Chinese food. I gave him the most withering look I could muster. As if! OF COURSE we need to try another Chinese place. Pfffft. It’s all in the name of research for you, my friends.

civil war days + the donuttery / huntington beach, ca

This was our third year attending the Civil War Reenactment in Huntington Beach. It’s held every year over Labor Day weekend and is sponsored by the City of Huntington Beach. It’s one of the free reenactments you can attend. You can learn so much about our country’s history by watching the battle and talking with many of the living historians attending the event. Here’s my recap of this year’s reenactment (plus, donuts at the end).

I have never really thought about …

ham n scram / westminster, ca

Over Labor Day weekend this year, Jake, T, and I made our way back up to Orange County to check out the Civil War Reenactment once again. But first… we had to stop for breakfast. Breakfast is very important after a long drive and a little Yelp research led me to a little place in Westminster called Ham n Scram.

It’s not a big spot. There’s about four tables inside and the place was full that morning. We were worried we’d …

whale watching in dana point + a giveaway

Now the luscious food is out of the way… let’s get to my post about the actual reason for our whole little road trip! I was invited to go up to Dana Point for an afternoon of Whale Watching with Dana Wharf Sportfishing and Whale Watching! I was given the option of actually either deep sea fishing or whale watching and quite frankly, hours and hours on a boat did not appeal to me. But two hours I could totally …
