    Jake’s mom worked at December Nights this year so of course we wanted to go down and see what’s she’s been working on these past few months! She helped organize the vendors in certain areas of Balboa Park and we were able to check out the area she organized, grab some food, and walk around Balboa Park. She also managed to snag us a parking pass in one of the lots near the Aerospace Museum so we didn’t have to walk three miles or take a shuttle. Yay! Jake, T and I decided to head down early so there would be less traffic and less people milling about. We got there…

It’s a very dog friendly place with a big patio in the back, though this visit it was on the chilly side (and we had no Maya) so we sat indoors. It’s kind of a big open space! The table we sat at had chairs that pushed right in under the table, so it just looks like a big cube for a table. Laura and I felt like we were really far apart from each other! But I didn’t want to move to another table because I liked the cozy cushions that the chairs…

I was able to “practice” on a potential Christmas cookie this year. I really wanted to make a shaped cookie – but NOT do sugar cookies – and finally decided on doing some shortbread. More specifically: Lemon Ginger Shortbread! The cookies have a ground up pecans mixed into the flour to give these a nuttier texture/flavor.   I didn’t use nearly enough ginger to make the ginger shine through as…

This includes reimbursing employees for their out of pocket expenses for driving their personal vehicles for business purposes. There are a…

Overtime Cases (10/23/14, pub. 11/13/14) --- Cal.App.4th ---, the plaintiffs sought to certify a class of hourly employees on the theory that Walgreens propounded a lawful meal period policy, but in practice Walgreens failed to provide its employees with compliant meal periods.
