Life Lately & Roy’s Restaurant

I recently started a new role at my job and it has kept me very busy. My new work has made my days go by really fast and sometimes I feel like my days are blurred together.  I have a renewed appreciation when everyone says TGIF!!

I spend  my weekends hanging out with my family. Look at how grown my nephew has become. He is almost a year old 🙂


It’s so fun interacting with him because he is at that age where he can be very animated. I love spending time with my family, it’s relaxing and it helps put a fun balance to a very busy work week.

One kiss will melt your stress away 😉


Chris and I rarely eat out, and when we do, we are either socializing with our friends and family or celebrating something special.

Last weekend, we ventured away from our home and dined out at Roy’s Restaurant located near Disneyland.



I really miss Hawaii and walking into the restaurant gave me a little vibe of the islands.


We were served with complimentary edamame. It was seasoned with chili and sea salt, a fun way to eat edamame, especially since I usually eat them plain.


We ordered calamari for our appetizers. It wasn’t your typical calamari and we found it ok. I like texture so I prefer the smaller and crunchy bites better. The sauce was great though.


I enjoyed a fish dish.


I ordered macadamia nut crusted Mahi Mahi with vegetables. The plate was beautifully presented.


We have plenty of fish that I can cook at home and I really need to learn the method to make some kind of nut-crusted fish. I tried before and most of the nut coating fell off 😦


Of course, I made sure to save room for dessert.


This was the most delicious pineapple upside down cake I’ve ever had for a long time, maybe ever? I love that there are plenty of pineapple chunks inside the cake.


To top it off, it was served with coconut ice cream. Perfection!


  1. COngrats on the new position! Dinner looks yummy-especially the dessert portion!!!!!

  2. Oh my gosh! Your nephew got so big! He is so adorable! 🙂 Congrats on the new position!

    That restaurant looks incredible! Pineapple upside down cake with coconut ice cream sounds heavenly.

  3. Your nephew is adorable! 🙂

    Coconut ice cream is my FAVORITE so i’m very jealous of you!

  4. Your nephew is so cute!! Dinner looks incredible. I love edamame with a little salt but have never had them seasoned with chili flakes. That sounds good!

    Where in Hawaii did you live? I spent a summer near Waikiki a few years back. It’s gorgeous there!
