I feel like this weekly round-up of favorite things should have a better title to distinguish one post for the next, but I’m blanking on good ideas the moment. This week definitely had its ups and downs, with the down being the A/C going out in my car, then getting it fixed, then having it break again two days later. I finally got my car back today and things are back to being cool around here, so without further ado-
My Favorite Things This Week:
The chef’s table at Doro – I got a little mom night out time this week with my good friend Meisha, so I was excited for her to try Restaurant Doro for the first time. She loves the dining experience as much as I do, and never passes up a chance to sit at the chef’s table. It’s the best place to be if you are nosey about what everyone else is eating. We both love watching the food being prepared and seeing all the different dishes. Doro never disappoints with both taste and presentation!
Summer stargazing at the beach – Summer nights always make me think of watching shooting stars at the beach. The Perseids happen July – August so almost any night out during those months you’ll catch several streak across the sky. The stars are always way brighter at the beach, so since we’ve moved here I’ve been pointing out the bright constellations to my son. He’s great at picking out Orion and the Big Dipper.
Modern Map Art sent us this really cool star map from the night he was born, but I went to post a picture and then realized maybe it’s not the best idea to post all the exact details- name, date, time, location, and instead am posting the very nice sample photos from their website, ModernMapArt.com:
I thought it would look great on his bedroom wall. It’s a pretty cool personalized gift idea to commemorate an anniversary or any special date. They also have customized street, country and ski maps.
These pretty flowers my husband sent me – These were actually quite timely because they arrived on a rough toddler tantrumfest kind of day. What’s all that screaming? I don’t know…oh look pretty flowers…
Our brick! – I got my husband a special brick in our beaches town center for Christmas and I’ve been waiting a long time to see it. They only put them out in batches of 50 so sometimes it takes a while to reach the quota. I thought it would be a neat way to commemorate our new home and be a permanent part of our neighborhood. I finally got to see it last night, outside of a restaurant we often frequent:
That does it for this week’s favorite things. Stay tuned next week, when maybe I have a better title!
The only thing I’ve managed to come up with so far is Friday Favorites, but I’m not completely sold on Friday as the permanent post date. Sometimes I like to do the wrap-up on Monday!
Suggestions welcome 😁

I feel you on the breaking heater. For the first four months of the year, it was 90 degrees in LA. So far, it has been unseasonably cooler, ’cause you know global warming and stuff. Hope you have better luck the second time around.
So far so good! 90 in LA? That’s hot for there! I’m sure people were just bursting into flames all over 😂
