The hubs and I had to make a last minute trip down to LA for the weekend. His dad had surgery on Friday and he really wanted to be there for him. We left Saturday afternoon and got back last night. His dad is still in the hospital but was supposed to have been moved out of ICU at some point yesterday. He is in recovery. He is okay but I don't think the worst is over just yet. There's talk of a second possible surgery but we will know more once he recovers from this last surgery.
While we were back in LA, we managed to spend a lot of time with my awesome friend, E, from my old school. We finally used our gift card to Hurry Curry and we had to make a stop at Boba Time. The best boba in the WORLD!! Oh, how we miss our Boba Time. We also stopped by Santa Monica Place to see the completed renos. It's very different from what it once was. We weren't impressed. It's too much like Century City and in our eyes, one Century City Plaza is enough.
Near the end of our trip, with all of our drive time (going from one end of LA to the other twice), I decided to work on my second sock. As of last night, I have turned the heel so I'm not too faraway from completion.
Today is National Pancake Day here in the US and IHOP has been giving a free short stack all day today. So in honor of National Pancake Day, here are some recipes I stumbled upon today: Bread pudding pancakes, tiramisu pancakes, and the fluffiest pancakes EVER. Enjoy!
