SUNDAYS IN MY CITY

Unknown Mami


Joining in with Unknown Mami today for Sundays In My City.  Last Sunday we went into Los Angeles to celebrate Tristen's 30th birthday. Tristen is our sons best girl and our daughter in law in our hearts. We finally had a day when we could all meet up. They live in the Westwood area close to Wilshire Blvd. 

We went to eat at a place called Pitfire Artisan Pizza in Westwood. (Pizza....what a surprise!) It was really fun and the pizza was great. It was pretty empty when we arrived but by the time we left it was packed. It is obviously a very popular place. 


I made Tristen some Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies. A new recipe I found on Pinterest that I thought she would enjoy since she likes mint ice cream.  Recipe They are really good.....in case you wanted to know.

After dinner we stopped and picked up a delicious Carmel Pecan Cheesecake and went back to their condo to have dessert and open presents. 

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, 
Happy Birthday Dear Tristen, Happy Birthday to you!

It was a perfect day with family in the city!
