Sunday Fun in Los Alamos

Sorry for the delay on this post, I was originally hoping to write it on Monday, but after a weekend away, work had really piled up over the last few days! After a couple of days of long hours, I finally feel like I’m getting caught up and wanted to take a moment to fill you in on the rest of Sunday.

As Adrian and I were driving home from our anniversary trip, I was texting with my mom to let her know we were on our way (they were at our house dog sitting Winston). My mom said she and Randy, my stepdad, were planning on heading over to Bob’s Well Bread Bakery in Los Alamos for brunch and asked if I’d like to join. I was more than willing to take them up on that offer! I had wanted to go to Bob’s ever since we had walked past it to go to Plenty on Bell back in August.

We got back around 9:45am and Adrian got ready to go to work and said his goodbyes. We lounged around for a bit catching up, my parents got ready, and we walked the dogs while Randy had to deal with a work phone call. Then it was off to Bob’s! We got there around 11:30 and it was busy, but still relaxed (side note: I actually find the whole town of Los Alamos incredibly relaxing – my kind of place 🙂). I ordered the Avocado Toast Tartine with an added farm fresh poached egg and a chai tea latte with almond milk.

It was the perfect brunch and the thick cut bread is what carb lovers like me dream about. We enjoyed an extended brunch in their garden under the oak trees and the perfect brunch was made even better by the company of these two:

My mom and Randy are the cutest! 

After eating we walked around main street and enjoyed poking our heads into all of the adorable shops and restaurants. A highlight was taking a quick look around the 1880 Union Hotel Saloon. It felt like walking back in time (much like the saloons in Virginia City, Nevada, if you’ve ever been!). I look forward to going back and enjoying a cocktail there sometime in the future! Los Alamos is only 15 minutes from our home, but I love how going there feels like a mini-vacation in itself.

Once we’d walked up one side of main street and back down the other, we headed back to Los Olivos so my parents could get on the road before Sunday traffic starts backing up. The rest of my Sunday was spent catching up on laundry, writing Sunday’s blog post, and getting mentally ready for a busy, but short, work week ahead since I’m taking off Friday to head up to Yosemite for the Yosemite Half Marathon this weekend!

Are you on the avocado toast bandwagon? I’ve been on it for a fews years and I don’t see myself getting off anytime soon 😉
