La Chicana Vegana – A Vegetarian’s Dream

Mexican food is so flavorful  yet I feel the menus are limiting for vegetarians, that is of course, until I discovered La Chicana Vegana!  My family and I ordered from La Chicana Vegana (previously a food truck) in Downtown Fullerton today, and absolutely loved it!  The vegan menu broadens the options for vegetarians compared to traditional Mexican restaurants or food trucks.

They are freighting, but also very interesting creatures.   I love watching the different … Continue reading The Aquarium of the Pacific

Sawdust Art Festival 2018

Last Sunday, my family and I drove down to Laguna Beach to attend the Sawdust Art Festival’s 28th Annual Winter Fantasy. There were so many booths set up, all with different media. The variety included jewelry, photography, clothing, ceramics, woodworks, painting, and sculpture. Being a winter theme, there were multiple Christmas trees and nutcrackers around. It even “snowed”! Admission was not 75 cents as it … Continue reading Sawdust Art Festival 2018
